What's This?

Apple recently admitted to some battery issues in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus smartphones. The devices are showing full battery charge on the display screen, while the fact is, there is almost no power in the battery.


The error in the battery display is caused by a bug in the battery meter that fails to update actual percentage of battery power remaining. As a result, many users find their iPhones shutting down abruptly even after showing a fully charged battery, reports The Guardian.

Apple reports that the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus devices fail to update the actual battery power charge when a user is trying to change the time manually or change time zones while travelling to different places.

You can follow a few easy steps to fix the problem. First, you need to restart your phone and go to Setting – General – Date & Time. Make sure that you activate the Set Automatically button under the Date & Time option.

A long discussion on Apple Support Communities shows that many users faced the same battery problems in their iPhones. A visitor wrote on the forum that uploading a new update, the iOS 9.0.2, could help fix the problem. However, the solution did not help others much as complaints continued pouring in. Many wrote how the iOS 9.0.2 did not fix the battery issue. Many, however, contacted Apple to seek a viable solution.

The iPhone 6s changes the way you experience using a smartphone. With plenty of innovative features, the device has the next generation of multi-touch facility, the world’s most popular camera, the most advanced A9 chipset within, and ultra-fast wireless networking, notes Apple.

According to GSM Arena, the iPhone 6s Plus is equally competitive with the 6s and has great features like a 5.5-inch display screen, a 12MP primary camera, a 5MP secondary camera, dual-core processor, etc. Apart from this, the phone offers multi-touch facility and other excellent features.
