iPhone 6S: Battery Problems Worsen

By  | 

Recently, Apple had acknowledged that some of its iPhone 6S devices have experienced random shut downs. The smartphone giant agreed that it would replace the affected devices’ battery for zero cost at its branded retail stores and authorized service providers around the world.

However, it looks like the damage is worse than what Apple had expected. Apple revealed that they had “found that a small number of iPhone 6S devices made in September and October 2015 contained a battery component that was exposed to controlled ambient air longer than it should have been before being assembled into battery packs.”

This would cause the batteries to “degrade faster than a normal battery and cause unexpected shutdowns to occur,” added Big A.

On top of that, Apple has also said that this malfunction may have also affected iPhones asides from this batch, as well. Thankfully, the company announced that it would begin collecting diagnostic data to find out the exact reason of the problem over the next couple of weeks.

Having said that, Apple has affirmed that this issue will not be a safety threat to users and it could be fixed via a software update.
