If you’re still rocking the four-year-old iPhone 6S or 6S Plus, there’s a slight chance you may have run into a big problem where the phone simply stops turning on.
The silver lining here, if there is one, is that Apple said on Friday that it will fix that problems for free.

If you think your iPhone 6 or 6S is subject to the problem, you can go to that site and plug in your serial number, and Apple will set you up with a repair.
The iPhone 6S holds an important distinction in Apple history: It was the last of the numbered iPhone line to come with a headphone jack, before it was taken out in 2016’s iPhone 7.
That’s led to some continued love for a device that’s otherwise getting long in the tooth, specs-wise — and why many were upset when Apple unceremoniously discontinued the iPhone 6S, and the similarly headphone-jacked iPhone SE, in 2018.
