    The serial number for my iPhone 6s is within the range of the problem shipment. but I haven't experienced the battery problem . Would it be a good idea to replace my iPhone 6s still for the long term?

    Your username is "AppleHater." You should probably get a phone that you like.

    Do they replace the whole phone or just the battery?
    Mind as well go for it.

    Mine is in the serial range as well but doesn't show symptoms (yet). I will have the battery exchanged because my battery is now over one year old and getting a free fresh battery is always a good thing.

    BTW, are you able to use the webpage from Apple? I put my serial number in and says my phone is in the program but then when I try to use the links to make an appointment the link always fails...

    They only replace the phone if there is an issue getting the battery out; as happened to me. Otherwise, they will just replace the battery. I took mine in because it started having the battery/power issues like 4 weeks ago. Luckily I didn't have the problem as frequently, or as long, as others have reported, but since I qualified on both fronts (issue and serial number) I decided it'd be best to swap it out. The program is good for three years from date of purchase, so if you really wanted to you could wait and see if problems arise, with a little more peace of mind.

    this is my suggestion , you can go to ebay , search for battery , and go to iFixit , learn how to replace the battery by yourself

    I've been having problems with my 6s for awhile now, although I'm not sure it's battery related. Mine does qualify so I will probably get it done closer to when I can upgrade for re sale purposes. Overall the 6s has been one of the worst iPhones I've ever had.
