Apple has acknowledged that iPhone 6s are facing random shutdowns, which is caused by the flaw in battery in few of iPhone 6s units. Yesterday, Apple confirmed on its official website in China that few of iPhone 6s are containing the faulty batteries which get degrade faster than a normal battery and cause unexpected shutdowns.
