While China isn’t too pleased with Samsung over the way they handled the Note 7 recall, it now seems that their ire has turned to Apple. This is because for some inexplicable reason, the iPhone 6 and 6s handsets in the country are shutting off at random. This seems to be happening regardless of battery life, with some shutting off even when there is 50% remaining.
For some reason, this only seems to have affected both the iPhone 6 and 6s, and that their Plus models aren’t affected, and neither have we heard similar reports in other parts of the world. Granted phones do run into problems every now and then, but to have particular models and particular markets affected does seem a bit weird.
We can only assume it is a software problem that might have affected the Chinese version of the iPhone, but whatever the case is, the China Consumers Association has since approached Apple about the problem and will be monitoring it. Users are complaining that the phones would only turn back on when they are plugged into a charger.
Like we said we haven’t heard about it being an issue in other markets, but do let us know in the comments below if you are similarly affected by the random shutting off of either the iPhone 6 or 6s.
