iPhone battery replacement programme might extend to iPhone 6

After launching a battery replacement program for the iPhone 6s in November, Apple might be poised to extend the programme to iPhone 6 units.

The original programme was for 6s units manufactured between September and October 2015. The issue pertained to a fault that caused random shutdowns to affected devices.

The reasoning for this was said to be battery components which had been exposed to air for an extended period before device assembly. If users owned an eligible device they were able to contact Apple for a battery replacement.

The program extension remains a rumor for now, but after it was touted on Japanese website Macotakara, it’s worth being aware of the prospect. It’s uncertain whether Apple will go ahead with it, though they’re yet to comment on the notion. However, considering the iPhone 6 is over two years old, and discontinued as of the iPhone 7 launch, it would be an interesting move
