iPhone 6s complaints begin with Touch ID, 3D Touch and speaker issues
iPhone launches bring the usual batch of news, from the amount of phones that Apple sold over the first weekend, to the usual “gate” complaints. We’ve seen it all when it comes to iPhones, from “Antennagate,” to “Scuffgate,” to “Bedgate” over the last few years. Whatever is plaguing Apple’s new iPhones doesn’t really have a name yet, but it’s only a matter of time.
Users have begun to complain about a couple of issues with Cupertino’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. One complaint has to do with Touch ID, where users claim that the sensor heats up after holding it down for a bit. Power issues are also being mentioned, where users have complained about the device just powering off for no particular reason. Other users have complained about the speakers, producing static in certain cases, and even issues with volume controls, and even notifications going silent because the earpiece was used, and not the speaker. Finally, we even hear that users find 3D Touch unreliable, having some apps not work well without it, or with it.
Apple hasn’t provided information as to why these issues have surged on its new smartphones, but we’ll keep an eye on these throughout our review period.
