Apple Will Replace Your Crummy iPhone 6S Battery For Free | Tech | Geek.com

Rest easy, iPhone 6S owners. If your device is randomly shutting down and the only fix is a new battery, Apple’s coming to the rescue. They’ll replace it for you at no cost.

They officially announced the swap program just days after the Chinese Consumer Agency lodged a complaint about the issue. According to the CCA, “the number of people who’ve reported this problem is rather many.”

There’s an asterisk, as there always is with these things. Apple says that the problem only impacts iPhone 6S in “a limited serial number range that was manufactured between September and October 2015.”

Apple’s not just looking after new replacements, either. If you own an affected iPhone 6S and you went to Apple for a repair before the program was announced, they’ll refund your money.

That’s a whole lot more generous than what they’re offering iPhone 6 and 6S users whose devices have contracted “touch disease.” In case you missed it, Apple’s placing the blame for that issue squarely on users, and all they’re offering is a discount on the repair.

$149 is a whole lot less than the standard $329 they ask for out-of-warranty repairs,  but it’s a big slap in the face to owners who’ve been careful with their iPhones and haven’t “dropped multiple times on a hard surface” — which is what Apple says causes touch disease.

But hey, if your iPhone 6S has been doubly impacted at least you’ll only be out of pocket for one of the repairs… so you’ll have a few extra bucks to put toward their new $300 coffee table book.
