THE Apple started on Friday (4) a repair program for certain units of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus that stop calling. A component failure can cause the problem on certain devices manufactured between October 2018 and August 2019.
The iPhone 6s was launched in September 2015, but continued to be sold in some countries four years after its debut (!). The repair program covers only the units that were produced in the last year. If you have a practically new iPhone 6s, you can consult this page if your serial number is eligible for repair.
The company does not report the details of the failure, limiting itself to saying that “certain devices may not connect due to a component that may fail”. As usual, the repair is free of charge, but if there is damage that impairs the repair process, such as a broken screen, it will be necessary to resolve the problem first.
Repair can be ordered for up to two years after the first sale date. Those who were eligible for the program and have already paid for a repair may request a refund at Apple website.
Announced in 2015, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are the oldest phones to receive the update to iOS 13. They had 4.7 and 5.5 inch LCD screens, 1,715 and 2,750 mAh batteries, Apple A9 processor and (uia!) a 3.5 mm headphone jack, which was retired the following year.
