A new rumor originating from Mac Otakara suggests that Apple could potentially expand the free battery replacement program from the iPhone 6s to the iPhone 6. The company had announced a free battery replacement program for the iPhone 6s in November last year after numerous complaints from users about their handset shutting down randomly. This led Apple to discover that it had shipped a small unit of iPhone 6s with faulty batteries.

Apple had first narrowed down the issue of iPhone 6s units randomly shutting down to a battery issue for which it has also started a replacement program.
