Owners of Apple’s most capacious new iPhones have taken to the company’s official discussion boards to complain about a string of issues that have seen the handsets crash or fail to boot when switched on.
In a fast–growing thread, Apple fans with 128GB iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets have complained that apps crash constantly and that they see a red or blue screen when turning on the device before it enters a so–called boot loop.
Others have suggested the notification centre is also affected.
While the number of users affected remains unclear, a new report from Korea suggests Apple could be struggling with the larger flash drive installed on its top-end iPhones. The tech giant has shifted to a new NAND flash unit for its largest models.
It is thought the company used cheaper triple-level cell flash units for its 128GB phones, which can store more data but take longer to read or write that information.
Apple has yet to offer confirmation of any issues and while some reports suggested it could be facing a major recall, it’s still too early to say whether the Cupertino-based firm will be forced to ask users to return their devices for new ones.
