Apple iPhone 6 to be included in the company's free battery replacement plan?
You might recall Apple's latest issue with the battery on the Apple iPhone 6s. Some owners of this iPhone model had complained that once the battery on their handset had 30% life left, the phone would shut off as though the battery had died. Plugging the iPhone into an outlet for a few seconds restarts the cell, giving it the same amount of life remaining as it had prior to turning off.

Apple said that affected handsets were exposed to too much ambient air during the manufacturing process, and has been offering a free battery exchange for certain iPhone 6s units. Owners of other iPhone models like the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 6 have been trying to tell Apple that their devices are experiencing the same thing. Apple has been silent about the possibility of other iPhone models suffering through the same problem with the battery.

But that might change very soon. According to a rumor out of Japan that was published earlier today, Apple will extend the battery replacement plan to include the Apple iPhone 6. The gang in Cupertino originally said that a small number of phones were affected by this issue, but it turns out that many more users than originally thought are having this problem. So far though, Apple has yet to confirm that adding the iPhone 6 to the free battery replacement plan is anything more than just talk.
