    Hi,

    If I buy a brand new IPhone 6s with 32GB from Apple Store will it be affected by the Battery issue?

    Please advice if you have any information.
    Thank you

    No.
    But you will have a 1 year warranty if you have any issues.

    Even if you were concerned, they have a serial number identification check you can utilize on Apple.com.

    The battery issue (that Apple acknowledged) was only on some devices shortly after release last year.

    We have 3 iPhone 6s at my house that are having the battery issue and are NOT on the "list". All were manufactured between Oct-Nov of last year. We will see how Apple responds. It's a bigger problem than they are acknowledging.

    Just an example: the one I bought a year ago (December 2015) from Apple was also affected. They're dealing with it now as I traded it in last week.

    Yesterday I bought a IPhone 6s 32GB Space Grey and lucky it is not affected. It is a birthday present so I feel very relaxed now.

    The serial number you entered is not eligible under this program because either:
    - It's not one of the serial numbers in the affected range
    OR
    - Our records show that your battery has already been replaced. If you paid for a battery replacement service, check with Apple to see if you are eligible for a refund.

    I'd imagine the battery issue affects the 16GB models as the 32GB variant launched at the same time as the 7/7 Plus.
