iPhone 6s Battery Recall

Posted: 12/7/2016 4:36:07 PM

Notice your iPhone 6s dying with 20% or 30% left on the battery? You're not going crazy, Apple confirmed that there was a manufacturing error in the batteries of iPhone 6s' from September to October 2015. Per Apple's press release:

“We 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. As a result, these batteries degrade faster than a normal battery and cause unexpected shutdowns to occur. It's important to note, this is not a safety issue.”

Luckily the iPhone's affected should not explode like the Note 7. Unfortunately a phone that will not stay on is not that useful. Apple has a tool to check if your iPhone is affected by this issue: click here. Avoid the crush of the mall during the Holiday's and take your iPhone to your local Foxpaw location.
