Some iPhone 6S models shut down out of nowhere on their own. If this happens to you, then you might qualify for a free battery replacement.
Thrillist reports that Apple said the issue, which causes the phones to shutdown is just a small number of iPhones manufactured between September and October 2015.
So how would one go about getting an iPhone battery replaced? You’ll need to visit an Apple store or authorized service provider. They’ll be able to check if you qualify for the free replacement battery by checking your phone’s serial number.
On a positive note, if your iPhone 6S is automatically shutting down, this is not a safety issue. So don’t expect a travel warning or your iPhone to be banned from being brought on planes like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was.
I’m debating whether or not I should have my iPhone 6S checked out. While it doesn’t shut down frequently, it does freeze up at times. Could it be a battery issue or something else? Who knows, maybe an Apple Genius does!
