Apple has been forced to deny that it is planning a battery replacement programme for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, following a string of online reports.
Apple watching Mac Otakara first claimed that Apple was working on plans similar to those it rolled out for select models of the iPhone 6s late last year.
A number of users have taken to Apple’s discussion boards to complain that their iPhone 6 battery often runs out of power despite being fully charged or that its charge percentage fluctuates wildly.
However, data from a number of Apple stores show that these individuals are in a small minority, so much so that it seems Cupertino does not believe there’s a need for an official recall programme.
“There are no plans or grounds for a wide iPhone 6 battery exchange program at this time,” one Apple executive told AppleInsider.
Apple’s vigilance over battery issues appears to have grown in recent months following Samsung’s decision to discontinue its Galaxy Note 7 due to exploding power units. More information on that issue is expected next week, when Samsung reveals the findings of a lengthy internal investigation.
