Apple Recalls Faulty iPhone 6 Plus Models

Apple is offering a free fix for some iPhone 6 Plus devices because of faulty cameras which take blurry photographs.The company says customers with the affected phones can have their back cameras replaced hassle-free.

Devices affected were mainly sold between the September 2014 release date and January 2015.

The firm says that only a “small percentage” of phones are affected, and the problem only occurs on the main back-mounted camera, and not the front-facing camera.

iPhone owners who want to check to see whether their device is eligible for a fix can enter their serial number on this web page.

To find your serial number go to settings, then tap “general” then “about”.

Apple said: “Apple has determined that, in a small percentage of iPhone 6 Plus devices, the iSight camera has a component that may fail causing your photos to look blurry.”

Eligible customers will have their phones repaired for free by taking it into an Apple store or by contacting technical support team.

Customers are advised to back up their data before sending phones to be repaired.

The next version of the iPhone – expected to be called the iPhone 6S – is due to be announced in just over two weeks’ time.
