Apple today launched a free repair program for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices that may fail to power on. The malfunction, according to the company, is due to a faulty component in the handset.
Affected iPhones were manufactured between October 2018 to August 2019, and can be verified on Apple’s support website using the device’s serial number. No other iPhone models are covered under this service program.
