Apple Denies Reports of iPhone 6 Battery Replacement Program
Japanese blog Macotakara recently reported that an imminent iPhone 6 battery exchange program was in the works, though it did not cite any particular source or reason for the speculation. However, a source inside Apple corporate has told AppleInsider that no such program is planned so far, since there is no justification for a wide program to fix the unexpected shutdown issues.
“We constantly evaluate service statistics,” one source inside Apple corporate said. “There are no plans or grounds for a wide iPhone 6 battery exchange program at this time.”
The source adds that it has also not found any significant departure from expected norms in over six months of collated service data provided by 40 Apple stores across the US. They also enquired some local Apple retail stores, who all claimed to know of nothing in the works, or any upcoming iPhone 6 battery replacement program.
Back in November, Apple announced a battery replacement program for select iPhone 6s owners, although a growing number of iPhone 6 and 6s users with devices not previously identified as faulty, are also experiencing the same issue.
