The Apple confirmed a major flaw in its iPhone 6 Plus and also launched a repair programme. It has confirmed that there is a hardware malfunction called 'touch disease' that exhibits display flickering or multi-touch issues in iPhone 6 Plus after being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device.

 

 

In a statement, Apple said, "If your iPhone 6 Plus is exhibiting the symptoms noted above, is in working order, and the screen is not cracked or broken, Apple or an Apple authorised service provider will repair your device for a manufacturer's suggested service price of Rs 9,900."

 

The statement added, "In case you are facing multi-touch issue, bring your iPhone 6 Plus to a participating Apple authorised service provider. Your iPhone will be examined prior to any service to verify that it is eligible for this programme and in working order. This programme only applies to iPhone 6 Plus."
