Rare Apple Recall affects iPhone 6 Plus

Apple has launched a repair program for iPhone 6 Plus owners affected by camera issues.

Apple announced a rare iPhone recall. iPhone 6 Plus owners with iSight camera issues can get a free camera replacement. The repair program comes just weeks ahead of the introduction of the new iPhone 6S.

Apple says in the announcement that a small percentage of iPhone 6 Plus devices made between September 2014 adn January 2015 are affected. 

If your iPhone 6 Plus iSight camera (rear camera) has been making blurry photos and falls into the eligible serial number range, Apple will replace your device's iSight camera, free of charge.

Why did it take almost a year for Apple to find out it is their fault?

iPhone 6 Plus owners can check if their device qualifies for the free repair here.

If your iPhone qualifies you can visit an Apple Authorized service provider, Apple store or call technical support to get your device processed. Apple notes that carriers are not part of this service offering.

Apple also requires that the iPhone has no damage before camera repair. A cracked screen for instance needs to be fixed prior.

This repair program is world-wide.

The Cupertino company has been making the iPhone 6 camera a central marketing topic. This repair program should have been launched much earlier as the first complaints appeared right after launch in September of last year.

Apple is expected to reveal a new iPhone 6S on September 9 in a media event. The iSight camera will be one of the components that will see a performance enhancement compared to the current iPhone 6.
