Apple launched a repair program a couple of weeks ago for iPhone 6s owners who have been experiencing unexpected shutdown of their devices due to battery fault. Not everyone with an iPhone 6s is having issues and Apple have now created a web tool were you can simply add your device serial number and see if it’s affected. If you are eligible then you will receive a free battery replacement.
To find out head on over to the website for Apple iPhone 6s program. To find your serial number go to Settings > General > About. “If your iPhone 6s has any damage such as a cracked screen which impairs the replacement of the battery, that issue will need to be resolved prior to the battery replacement. In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the repair.”
To prepare your iPhone 6s for the battery replacement process, follow the steps below:
- Back up your data to iTunes or iCloud.
- Turn off Find my iPhone
- Erase data and settings in Settings > General > Reset > Erase all Content and Settings
