There are rumours swirling about that tech giant Apple might be planning to offer replacements to iPhone 6 users.
Lots of people have complained that their battery died at only 30 per cent and I think we all know that misery.
The Five Worst Times Your Battery Can Die
1. When you’re lost, it’s dark and late and using Google Maps to find your way. It’s not that you’re scared or anything but WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT NOISE?!
2. When it’s 3am and you’ve locked yourself out of your flat. It’s so cold outside, sniff.
3. When you’re about to swipe right on your perfect woman on Tinder. Shit, you’ll never find her again! You were sure to be a match.
4. Following the live updates of a match on the train – someone was about to score! You’ll have to wait until you get home to find out who won.
5. When you lose your friends at a music festival. Oh well, you’ll just have to make new friends.
Apple admitted last year there was a problem with the 6s, and set up a programme to replace iPhone 6s with battery problems. The issue was only in China, however, and Apple said it was only a few phones.
Apple said: “We found that a small number of iPhone 6s devices made in September and October 2015 contained a battery component that was exposed to controlled ambient air longer than it should have been before being assembled into battery packs.
“As a result, these batteries degrade faster than a normal battery and cause unexpected shutdowns to occur.”
I think we can all agree that all Apple iPhone batteries “degrade faster” than they should do.
In 2014, there was a similar problem with the iPhone 5 and Apple set up a scheme to replace faulty phones. It seems that it’s only the iPhone 6 that doesn’t have its own programme to replace phones – but now that people are reporting battery issues, that might be set to change.
The rumours are allegedly coming from within Apple itself – so we’ll have to wait to see if they officially say anything.
