Some iPhone 6s users have found it hard going with their batteries for a while, experiencing shutdowns and so on. 

Apple has come out to say that they are working on the issue. They say it was caused due to some batteries being exposed to "controlled ambient air" during manufacturing -- while also expanding the scope of the affected range of customers facing the problem.

In the original message, Apple noted that "a small number" of iPhone 6s smartphones made in September and October of 2015 were facing unexpected shutdowns due to their prolonged exposure to controlled ambient air. Now, Apple said that it's discovered a few customers "outside of the affected range" who have also been facing unexpected shutdowns of their iPhone 6s devices meaning that the battery problem might be more widespread than initially thought.

Apple has now tasked themselves with preparing an iOS update that it said will introduce an "additional diagnostic capability" so the company can gather information and improve its ability to manage the battery performance levels and untimely shutdowns. The update, presumably iOS 10.2, will be made available sometime next week, and Apple mentioned that if any improvements and solutions are discovered thanks to the diagnostic tool, "they will be delivered in future software updates."

Apple have said they'll offer free battery replacements to those who are having issues with unexpected shutdowns on their iPhone 6s.
Apple have said they'd replace the batteries for these devices at its branded retail stores and authorized service provider centers for free.
So if your iPhone 6s has this problem, Apple says there’s no cause for concern as it isn’t a safety issue. Plus, the company believes it only affects devices within a limited serial number range that were manufactured between September and October 2015. 
This is different from the 'Touch disease' problem some iPhone 6s suffered earlier. Apple announced a repair program for that last week,

Before going ahead with the replacement though, you should backup your data, erase your settings and turn off the Find my iPhone security feature. To erase your data, you can head over to Settings > General > Reset > and click on Erase all Content and Settings. Apple also notes that the program covers iPhone 6s batteries for three years from first retail sale of the unit and battery replacement does not extend the standard warranty coverage of your device.
So once you've sorted this out, you should be able to get your iPhone 6 battery replaced.

Apple's newest smartphone iPhone 6S and 6S Plus has just hit the market and expectations are very high on whether the new babies are going to surpass the 10 Million units sold in first week of the latter smartphone iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

However, reports on Monday states that there has been a robust preorders for the latest iPhones and that online demand for the 6S Plus was "exceptionally strong" - Trudy Muller an Apple spokesperson told press.

Based on the number of preorders, Muller said  Apple is "on pace" to surpass last year's initial sales when it moved 10 million units of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus during their first weekend of availability (including more than 4 million preorders during the first 24 hours). That was double the initial weekend sales for the iPhone 5.

Last wednesday when the smartphone was launched, we learnt Apple's official website was down for over an hour due to massive traffic and online orders but the actual number of preorders received have so far not been disclosed, only an estimate has been revealed by Wall Street Journal.

Apple will start shipping the iPhone 6S & 6S Plus that's been pre-ordered via their website from September 25, the iPhone 6S comes in minimum 16GB and the highest is still 128GB which is selling for $649 and $849 respectively.

Did you pre-order and what's your expectation ?
