Here is a look at how to check if your phone is affected. My 6S has one of the affected serial numbers, so should I take it in for repair or not? I would hate to have it fail when I was on a road trip, but so far, I do not have any signs of the problem.

Here’s what Apple says in its iPhone 6s battery replacement program:

Quote:
Apple has determined that a very small number of iPhone 6s devices may unexpectedly shut down. This is not a safety issue and only affects devices within a limited serial number range that were manufactured between September and October 2015…. Your iPhone will be examined prior to any service to verify that it is eligible for this program and in working order.
In order to check whether your iPhone 6s is eligible or not, here’s what you need to do:

1. Locate your iPhone’s serial number. You can find the serial number on the back of your iPhone, or simply go to Settings>General>About.

2. Check for the following characters located in the 4th and 5th position of your iPhone’s serial number:
Q3
Q4
Q5
Q6
Q7
Q8
Q9
QC
QD
QF
QG
QH
QJ
You can also request a refund if you’ve already paid for a battery repair or replacement on an eligible device.

The source however notes that several Apple stores are reporting constrained battery supplies, while some stores will have to wait until December 5th or later to receive stock for repairs.

Is your iPhone 6s eligible for a free repair?

Your device does not require service if it is not experiencing issues.

Thanks, that is kind of what I thought. Just hope it never does need service when I am far from an Apple dealer. That is one reason I retain a Telus modem at $10 a month for 500 MB and rarely use it. It is a flex plan for an emergency if my phone goes down for personal hotspot, I can use it at a reasonable graduated rate (more I use the cheaper the rate per GB).

Hmmm…??? Couldn't you just use you Mac as a wireless base and access point instead???

That is exactly what I do if the phone goes down for any reason. Doing so though, requires a modem, thus my retention of said modem for a paltry $10 a month. Keep in mind there is no internet service available in some locations I upload my website from, just cell service and the MBP is useless in that situation without the modem.

It has been mentioned here before, but here is an official & global link:

For lack of spare parts, Apple repair services in many countries are asking customers to be patient...
