Early iPhone 6s + 6s Plus customers report Contact I-D, 3D Touch, loudspeaker + power issues

Following the other day’s launch of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, Apple’s help neighborhood pages are illuminating with new reviews of issues using the new iPhones for a few clients. The problems vary from overheating Contact I-D buttons to arbitrary power- offs, sound distortion that is major, and 3D Touch glitches.

Below, we look at a few of the best iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus issues users are reporting, along with potential options…

  • Touch I-D. Some customers of the iPhone 6s have noted that their House buttons/Contact I-D scanners are getting “extremely popular” to the contact, a difficulty that will seemingly be solved by holding down the Sleep/Wake and House buttons for 10 seconds to re-set the phone.
  • Power. Some iPhone 6s consumers say that their devices are randomly powering off despite still having battery energy. The iPhones could be run back on-again by holding down the Sleep buttons, but when the electricity goes out, cease working.
  • Loudspeaker systems. several iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus customers have already been reporting major sound distortion through the devices’ loudspeakers, including “superb loud” telling sounds that mimic the loudspeaker being blown. While it’s uncertain if the problem is in components or software, some consumers think that it’s a software bug associated with restoring from an old iPhone backup; the others think the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus loudspeaker systems have taken a step down in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. We’ve also found the iPhone 6s Plus is acting strangely using the Telephone app, occasionally performing sound like ringtones and phone calls through the  at and incorrect loudspeakers the volumes that were incorrect.
  • 3D Touch. Some customers, including 9to5Mac editors, have have seen 3D Touch software-related bugs, including a refusal of Safari to open internet links using routine (non-deep) water faucets. 3D Touch to restart its regular functionality may be allowed by resetting the iPhone.

History indicates that Apple will repair most of early adopter problems to iOS by way of a software update. As usually, the time of the update and the extent to which software fixes the problems stay uncertain.
