Apple has launched a new repair program for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The company says that due to a certain faulty component, these handsets might not power on after being switched off.
All affected iPhone 6s units were sold between October 2018 and August 2019. Apple had launched iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in 2015. Anyone who is still using an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus can check if their device is affected or not from Apple’s support site by entering its serial number. All eligible devices will be covered within two years from the date of their sale.
If your device is eligible, you have the option to go to an Apple Authorised Service Provider, make an appointment at an Apple Retail Store, or contact Apple support to arrange for a mail-in service via the Apple Repair Center. However, according to Apple’s website, the program covers affected iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices for only 2 years after the first retail sale of the unit. Apple also says that it may restrict or limit repair to the original country or region of purchase.
Your device will be repaired for free, though you must be in the same country as from where you purchased the device.
If you have already paid for a similar repair on your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, you can contact Apple and get a refund.[Via Apple]
