Before you get the new iPhone 6s, consider reading this first as early buyers have reported a list of hardware problems with the new iPhone 6s.
Just a few weeks after the launch of iPhone 6s, users from around the world have been complaining about the new model’s hardware. Here are the 5 most common problems and possible ways to fix them.
5 Common Hardware Problems with the New iPhone 6s
1. Touch ID Problem #1: Over-sensitive
While the Touch ID or home button is a great way to unlock your iPhone or to purchase apps, users of iPhone 6s are saying that it’s becoming too sensitive that you won’t even have the chance to look at the locked home screen to view notifications.
Unfortunately there’s no fix for this until the updated iOS 9 is out.
2. Touch ID #2: Overheating (Burngate)
Some new users of the iPhone 6s have reported that their home buttons are becoming too hot. There are also instances of the phone shuts down when this happens.
A quick way to “fix” this is to do a software reset by pressing the home button and wake/sleep button simultaneously for about 6-10 seconds. This will reboot the iPhone and it sure work normally after that.
3. Power Problem
New users of iPhone 6s are reporting that their phones are shutting down randomly although there’s still juice left in the battery. There’s no way to fix this until, again, the new iOS 9 is updated.
4. Speakers Distorted / Extra Loud
Problem with iPhone speakers is not very common even in the earlier models. However, people are saying that there’s a noticeable distortion with the iPhone 6s speakers.
Some of the affected devices are having super loud notification sounds. It’s so loud as though causing the speakers to be blown.
This may be related to iOS bug which can fix the problem once there’s a new update from Apple.
5. 3D Touch Bug
This new technology on the new model seems to be quite buggy based on users feedback. For example, Safari doesn’t open web links even using regular tap.
The only possible fix for this is to do the same reset steps as explained in problem 2 above.
Just like any of the previous models, the later batches should improve significantly after the above issues have been addressed by Apple.
Meanwhile, those who are affected will have to wait for the new iOS update or get a replacement phone at their nearest Apple store.
