  • Apple launches another iPhone 6S repair programme this time affecting devices made in 2018 and 2019??!! | Not a typo


    Apple is launching yet another iPhone 6S repair programme and this time is trying to tackle some 6S units which apparently no longer are able to turn on because of a component defect.




     




    Interestingly enough, the affected devices are only iPhone 6S and 6S Plus models manufactured and sold between October 2018 and August 2019 and thus the majority of iPhone 6S units aren't affected by this.

    Apple has posted notice of a new repair program to address an issue that prevents some iPhone 6S and 6S Plus phones from turning on.




    "Apple has determined that certain iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices may not power on due to a component that may fail," the page for the program says. The program is wordily called "iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus Service Program for No Power Issues."

    The issue does not affect all iPhone 6S and 6S Plus units; rather, it affects phones in a certain serial-number range that corresponds to some handsets sold between October 2018 and August 2019. The iPhone 6S was discontinued in North America throughout that window, but the company continued to make and sell it for some other regions.




     




    Apple's page for the service program invites users to type in their serial numbers to check if their devices are affected. The company also notes, "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."

    Apple has determined that certain iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices may not power on due to a component that may fail. This issue only affects devices within a limited serial number range that were manufactured between October 2018 to August 2019.




    If you believe you have experienced this issue, please use the serial number checker below to see if your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus is eligible for repair, free of charge.










     




    I'm more surprised that Apple were still manufacturing iPhone 6S units in 2018 and 2019 tbh. This probably means they're still actively mass producing iPhone 7 (or at least were and might have stopped a month ago) and iPhone 8.




     




    I would encourage people who bought a 6S from Apple in between October 2018 and August 2019 to use the serial number checker to confirm and then send it back to Apple to fix the defect if you experience one.
