Several years ago, Apple was hit with several class action lawsuits over the “batterygate” scandal. For those who are unfamiliar, basically the company was accused of throttling their devices. Now it looks like if you’re living in the US, you will be entitled to claim $25 from the company as part of the settlement agreement Apple had reached with prosecutors.
We have heard instances of iPhones exploding and catching on fire. They don’t happen quite as often (thankfully), but it does happen. Recently, a report from 23ABC News has revealed that over in California, an iPhone 6 reportedly caught on fire while being held in the hands of an 11-year old girl.
One of the things that Apple does really well is the support for its older devices. While it would no doubt be in the best interest of the company to encourage its customers to buy its newer products, they have actually done a good job at continuing to support older products with major updates.
Several years ago when the iPhone 6 was first launched, many lauded Apple’s brand new design, although that quickly turned sour when it was discovered that the iPhone 6 had started to bend simply by being in the pockets of users. Apple had publicly maintained that this was not an engineering issue, but internal documents are now saying otherwise.
Are you having some major issues with your iPhone 6 Plus? The good news is that according to MacRumors, it seems that Apple will be replacing some iPhone 6 Plus units with the iPhone 6s Plus, which means that for some users, you will essentially be getting a free upgrade of sorts, even if that upgrade is about 3 years old.
There is that popular saying where if something is too good to be true, it generally is. However we suppose sometimes a deal might be too good to pass up for some people, and a recent example took place in Wisconsin, where a woman thought she was getting a good deal for an iPhone 6, only to end up with a box of potatoes.
For the past several quarters, Apple’s iPhone sales have been on the decline which some are attributing to the market being saturated, while others are saying that Apple hasn’t really done anything new to the iPhone in the past three generations. However it is expected that Apple’s new iPhones are meant to bring back a period of a super cycle for the company.
Apple has been unable to sell the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in China for quite some time now due to a ban which has finally been overturned by a Chinese court. The ban was the result of a complaint from Shenzhen Baili Marketing Services which claimed that these handsets infringed on the company’s design patents. The Beijing Intellectual Property Office ordered Apple’s Chinese subsidiary and local retailer Zoomflight […]
Right now the latest iPhone is the iPhone 7 (and its Plus variant), which means that the iPhone 6 is basically 3 generations ago. However interestingly enough it seems that over in Taiwan, Apple has quietly launched a new 32GB iPhone 6 model that will be available via local carrier Taiwan Mobile.
If you own either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s and/or their Plus variants and have been experiencing unexpected shutdowns, then you might want to check and see which version of iOS 10 you are running. This is because if you haven’t updated to iOS 10.2.1 yet, it could explain these unexpected shutdowns which we imagine are pretty annoying.
There have been rumors recently about an iPhone 6 battery replacement program based along the same lines as the iPhone 5 battery program that ended last year. The original program was limited to select devices that were sold during a five-month period in 2014. According to a new report, there’s not going to be an iPhone 6 battery replacement program because Apple can’t justify a reason for it.
Apple’s iPhone 6 represented a pretty big change for the change. While the iPhone 5 introduced a larger display from its predecessors at 4-inches, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus brought even bigger changes at 4.7-inches and 5.5-inches respectively. This is why it wasn’t surprising to learn that sales of the iPhone 6 are pretty damn high.
As some of you guys might have heard, recently there were reports that the iPhone 6 and 6s handsets in China were shutting off at random. It was unclear as to why that might be the case, but according to a report from AppleInsider, it turns out that the problem could be due to the use of third-party chargers.
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.
