There is always some people who claim that their smartphones shoot blurry photos, even those owners of devices that are known for their image capturing process, like the iPhone 6 Plus. Well, it turns out that they may have a point. Apple has just revealed that a small percentage of iPhone 6 Plus devices were released having a defective component that reduces the quality of photos shot using the handset. The good news is that the company is offering to repair the faulty iSight cameras absolutely free of charge.
But which iPhone 6 Plus units were affected exactly? As explained by Apple, the most likely defective devices were those that were sold between September of last year and January of this year. For those users who think they their iPhone 6 Plus devices are part of these faulty batch, they can go visit an online tool that Apple has posted on its website. These tool allows users to provide the serial numbers of their iPhone 6 Plus handsets and determine if they are qualified for the free repair offer from Apple.
So what happens for those iPhone 6 Plus owners who do find out they eligible for the offer? Well, they can hand their iPhone 6 Plus units to the nearest Apple store or to the nearest authorized service provider (but not to their wireless carrier though). On the same web page where Apple posted its online tool, there are links that can help affected iPhone owners search for the most accessible drop off location. The page also provides some other helpful information.
The iPhone 6 Plus is the bigger sibling of the iPhone 6, and the two were released by Apple back in September of last year as the phone maker’s latest flagship devices. Many consider these iPhone models as Apple’s direct answer to Samsung’s big screened Galaxy phablets. Needless to say, Apple ended up being the clear winner, with iPhone 6 Plus now viewed by industry watchers as the best selling phablet as of the first quarter of 2015.
One big reason for iPhone 6 Plus’ popularity is its high quality image capturing capabilities. But as it turns out now, one of the device’s best assets is faulty, at least for a certain batch already out in the market. Still, the free repair offer was a good gesture on Apple’s part, and it should give some iPhone 6 Plus owners, especially those actually affected, to have their devices fixed.
