Remember Apple’s previous Butterfly Keyboard and iPhone battery repair programs? Well, yet another has launched— this time to fix iPhone 6S phones with a “component that may fail,” preventing the device from powering on.
How Does it Work?
This new program is lengthily entitled, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus Service Program for No Power Issues. Affected devices include certain iPhone 6S or 6S Plus devices sold between October 2018 and August 2019. You can check if your’s was one of the iPhones in question on the program’s page, where you’re prompted to enter in your device’s serial number. Repair options include making an appointment at an Apple Store or Authorized Service Provider. You may also choose to mail-in the phone to Apple’s Repair Center. Apple is also offering refunds for anyone who may’ve paid to repair this issue with their iPhone 6S in the past.
Don’t Schedule a Repair Just Yet…
According to Apple’s website, your iPhone 6S must be in just about pristine condition to be eligible for the repair program. “If your iPhone has any damage which impairs the ability to complete the repair, such as a cracked screen, that issue will need to be resolved prior to the service. In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the additional repair.”
