Apple’s iPhone 6s battery issues are causing the device to shut down

iPhone error 53

This issue has been going on for about a month or so, but Apple is now noticing that this is a bigger issue than originally expected.

We don’t like when our mobile device has issues whether it be software or hardware, but we definitely don’t like it when it’s a battery issue. Well, about four days ago YouTuber SuperSaf (and probably others) made a video about his iPhone 6s battery causing his phone to shut down while in use even while there appeared to be battery life left and what to do about it. This issue has been going on for about a month or so, but Apple is now noticing that this is a bigger issue than originally expected, and most issues come from phones in the first batch of shipments from September to October of last year.

Apple is stating a small number of users are affected that are outside the September/October time frame, but didn’t specify if any other iPhone models were also having this issue. Apple also mentions that the phones will shut down in normal conditions to protect the innards of the device and that at the moment this does not pose a safety issue to users.

If you have or haven’t been having your iPhone 6s shut down on you lately, you can check to see if your device battery needs to be replaced by Apple. Feel free to go here and look for yourself. All you need to do is select the country you’re in and enter the serial number of that device. There are also steps as to what to do if your iPhone 6s is affected. Either bring the device to your nearest Apple Store, an authorized service provider, or Apple Tech Support.
