Apple will repair your iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus for free if it won't turn on

Apple will repair your faulty iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus Smartphones for free if they do not switch on anymore. The repair program is available for free for the select iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S models only. 

Apple iPhones that have been manufactured between the months of October 2018 and August 2019 are eligible for this free repair program by Apple.

If you have an iPhone 6S or an iPhone 6S Plus smartphone that is not turning on, then this is good news for you. Apple has started a free repair program for iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus smartphones that won't power on. So in case you have an old Apple iPhone 6S series smartphone that won't switch on at all,  you can go to your nearest Apple Authorised Service Provider and ask for a free repair under the program.

Although, not all faulty iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S smartphones are going to be eligible for a free repair under this program. Apple has said in a post on its support page that the issue owing to which select iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus smartphones are not turning on affects a select batch of iPhones manufactured only between October 2018 and August 2019. This also means that if you have an iPhone 6S series smartphone that was manufactured before October 2018 or after August 2019, then you will not be eligible for a free repair under this initiative.

But if you are not sure if your smartphone does qualify for a free repair, you need to be looking for the serial number of your Apply iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus smartphone on the phone's box and enter it on the Apple's support page on its website. 

Also, if you have already gotten your iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus repaired, you can get a full refund for the repair cost under this initiative by Apple, as per reports. "If you believe your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus was affected by this issue, and you paid to repair your device, you can contact Apple about a refund for the repair cost," Apple said in its support page.

The Apple iPhone 6s Smartphone line had gone on sale originally in the month of  September 2015 but was discontinued in September 2018 with the launch of the previous year’s iPhones. But still, Apple had continued the production of some models of the Apple iPhone 6s for sale in selected markets, including India.

This repair program is the sixth program for Apple this year, according to the Apple website. At the start of this year, Apple had opened repair programs for the old 15-inch MacBook Pro’s battery, some wall adapters, the 13-inch MacBook Pro display backlight, MacBook keyboards, and screens on the Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 3.

However, while Apple had admitted that the fault had occurred due to some issues with a certain component, it didn't provide a reasonable explanation about that faulty component. "Apple has determined that certain iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices may not power on due to a certain component that may have failed working," Apple wrote on its support page.
