Apple will repair iPhone 6s/6s Plus that won’t power on for free


Apple has introduced a programme for certain iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices that have trouble powering on due to a “component that may fail”. These affected devices are eligible for free repairs.

The official service programme webpage states that power on issue only affects devices within a limited serial number range that were manufactured between October 2018 to August 2019.

If you’re currently experiencing powering on issues, use the serial number checker on the page to see if your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus is eligible for repair, free of charge. You can also get in touch with Apple Support or head to the nearest Apple Store or Authorised Apple Service Provider to check.

The programme will cover all affected phones two years after purchase, which means if you’ve recently purchased your iPhone 6s, you’ll be covered until 2021.

Additional details for this repair program:

Apple may restrict or limit repair to the original country or region of purchase.

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.

This worldwide Apple program doesn’t extend the standard warranty coverage of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Apple discontinued the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus together with the iPhone X and iPhone SE last year. However, the four-year old iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models are still being manufactured and sold in India.
