Apple’s latest iOS 10 update appears to have largely fixed a major bug, which was causing iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus handsets to shut down unexpectedly.
According to data released by Apple, iOS 10.2.1 has brought a halt to the problem in 70% of 2014-era iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models. That number rises to 80% in 2015’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

In a statement, Apple explained how else it was helping users affected by the problem.
“We [have] also added the ability for the phone to restart without needing to connect to power, if a user still encounters an unexpected shutdown.
“It is important to note that these unexpected shutdowns are not a safety issue, but we understand it can be an inconvenience and wanted to fix the issue as quickly as possible.”
It has also been reported that Apple will soon add a “your battery needs service” message to those whose iPhones require a new power pack.
It should be noted that older iPhones may be out of warranty, meaning users will have to pay to replace their battery.
