Excessive Apple iPhone 6/6 Plus or 6s/6s Plus Battery Drain? Here’s What You Can Do
Since its release in September 2014/15, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S family has come a long way, literally, with tons of iOS updates and cycles of charging. Once the old battery surpasses the 500 complete charges, its performance will decline, resulting in few hours of usage between charges. From this point you have two options, either shelve your existing device and buy a new or a refurbished phone, or replace the one on your existing device.
There are also other ways to fix this issue like resetting the device and disabling background application refresh in the Settings. However, nothing is more effective than completely replacing the old with a new one.
How to tell if you need to replace the battery
iPhone users can enjoy the device for longer hours when the battery is at its peak performance. Through the years, it chemically ages, which results in excessive draining. If your phone needs constant charging and doesn’t last for quite a time, you better have it checked. Other indications of battery replacement include:
1. Your iPhone feels hot to the touch
The lithium-ion battery in your phone internalize the heat, therefore, it’s normal for the device to feel kind of warm. But if you think it’s too hot to the touch, even if you’re indoors, there must be going on with it. Don’t wait until it overheats and completely malfunctions. Bring your phone to a reliable service provider like Phonebot to get high-quality battery replacements and phone repair.
2. Your iPhone suddenly shuts down
Does your smartphone shut down unexpectedly when its still more than 40% a few moments ago? It may be the culprit. Normal iPhones or Samsung devices like Samsung Galaxy S6 don't shut off randomly. And it definitely shouldn’t happen most of the time, especially if you’ve just charged your device. Consider having it checked just to be sure.
3. Your iPhone only works when plugged
When your smartphone only works when connected to a power source, its high time to replace the battery or the battery connector. It’s impossible to always be around a socket just to use your phone. Plus, this is inconvenient and consumes so much energy.
Why Replace the Battery
The obvious reason to replace the battery of your iPhone is to avoid losing data, enjoy the longevity of the device and improve its overall performance plus its heaps cheaper than replacing your existing device with a new or an Apple refurbished iPhone.
Now that almost anything can be done using a smartphone, it’s so frustrating not to be able to use it when you needed it most. With new and fresh battery though, you can enjoy long hours of use in a single charge.
Safety is another factor as overheating and swelling of the batteries can happen overnight. If the temperature rises, you’ll never know what can happen to the device.
Choosing the best service provider
If you’re already decided, the next thing to do is find a reliable service provider. Phonebot provides six months warranty & costs $49 to replace. However, if your phone is already problematic with other undesirable and random issues, you can just purchase a new one. Our iPhone 6 6s 6 plus & 6s plus units come with new batteries installed.
