How to tell if your iPhone 6S is part of Apple's recall

It's not just the Galaxy Note 7 that has given its users a headache this year, after all, several iPhone 6S models are also having serious problems. Like its rival from Samsung, Apple's smartphone also has battery problems, which causes some models to shut down suddenly and for no reason. Apple has already announced that it will recall the battery of these models for component replacement. If you want to know if your iPhone 6S is part of these models, just check our article below!

Problems with the iPhone 6S

Unlike the Galaxy Note 7, not all iPhone 6S models have been affected by the battery defect that makes smartphones turn off by themselves. According to Apple, the problem is found only in models manufactured between September and October 2015.

The good news is that models made in Brazil have no chance of presenting this problem, but maybe you should worry if you bought your iPhone from abroad.

If this is the case and you notice that your device is shutting down several times for no reason, it may well be part of the defective models. If this happens, it is best to try contacting Apple as soon as possible, even if you have to take your smartphone to an authorized service facility first.

The company also stated that any other problems that the smartphone has (such as broken screen, for example) must be fixed before replacing the battery. There are also other things you need to do before sending your device for recall, such as backing up your data, disabling iPhone tracking, and formatting your device.

Since so few models really have this problem, it's not as likely to happen to you, but it's good to keep an eye out. It is also worth mentioning that only the battery will be replaced in these cases and consumers will not receive new iPhones, as some have assumed.
