The iPhone is considered one of the best phones in the market. From its design up to its specifications, it just seems to stand out among other smartphones. But that doesn't mean that the Apple-made handset is free of flaws.
In fact, the company is now facing a few problems with some of their iPhone devices. There seems to be two bugs going around that can destroy your device's battery.
The first bug circulates among iPhone 6s devices only. It apparently causes the phones to shut down randomly. For this glitch, Apple offered to replace the batteries of infected devices for free provided that your phone's serial number falls under the manufacturing date of September to October 2015.
The second type of bug affects iOS 10.1 or iOS 10.1.1 updated devices wherein the battery power seems to drain faster than the usual. With 30 percent of battery still left, the phone shuts down and is completely drained. Once you charge it, the phone goes back to normal and starts charging at the 30 percent mark, instead of zero percent. Similar to the first glitch, Apple will replace your battery for free if it was manufactured between September 2015 and October 2015.
If you noticed that your handset is either losing power quickly or switching off despite having some power left, then your phone is definitely defective.
According to Apple, it is still unclear how many iPhone owners are affected by the bug but they think it's only a very small fraction.
Since this is clearly a software bug, Apple should be able to fix it soon with further updates so there's really no point in panicking and spending tons of cash just to have it fixed. Unfortunately, Apple did not comment on when they'll be able to fix the glitch. The only way to solve these battery issues as of now is to bring a charger or power bank with you at all times.
