Apple is set to replace faulty, in-warranty iPhone 6 Plus models with its newer iPhone 6s Plus, according to a leaked internal memo.
The iPhone 6 Plus, which is now discontinued, has been suffering from a series of issues in recent months, with users complaining of random shutdowns and other battery related problems.
In the memo, sent to official resellers, Apple says, "...orders for whole unit service inventory of some iPhone 6 Plus models may be substituted to an iPhone 6s Plus until the end of March 2018."
That means that anyone with an iPhone 6 Plus that is within warranty or covered under Apple’s insurance programme could land an iPhone 6s Plus instead.
It's thought batteries for the iPhone 6 Plus are in short supply, a major snag as Apple’s £25 battery replacement programme gets underway.

It seems this could be a way around that particular problem.
Apple’s wide-ranging battery replacement programme, for iPhone 6 and newer, runs until December 2018.
