Apple has some VERY bad news for people with iPhone battery life problems

Apple has ruled out a free replacement scheme for iPhone 6 smartphones suffering from bad battery life.

Last year, the company admitted there was a problem with some iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus units, which caused the devices to switch off when the battery level reached 40 per cent, or lower.

Apple has rolled-out a serial number checking tool that allows iPhone owners to check whether their device is affected by the problem.

It also posted a statement on its Chinese website, providing additional information on the problem.

Apple said:

"Outside the affected batch, a small number of customers reported an unexpected shutdown.

"Some of these shutdowns may be normal because the iPhone will shut down to protect its electronic components. To gather more information, we will add an additional diagnostic feature to the iOS software update that is released next week."

However, experts are saying if your iPhone is affected by this, and you don't have one of the selected barcodes, then fear not. You can extend your iPhones battery by 140% with the world's slimmest iPhone charger case.

This means your phone, even if it DOES have the shutdown bug - will last for over twice as long.

The case uses revolutionary technology to keep your phone topped up throughout the day.
