Examining service data from over 40 Apple stores in the US, AppleInsider was unable to find anything that might indicate Apple would expand its battery exchange program to include iPhone 6 devices that might also be suffering from battery issues.

Apple's manufacturing partners believe Apple will build and ship 110 million to 120 million iPhone 8 units in the second half of 2017, of which about 70% will have a 5.1-inch OLED display, Hosseini said in a report.
Yesterday, a rumour did the rounds that the free-replacement programme was to be extended to users on iPhone 6 suffering the same problem - of batteries suddenly going flat. For what it's worth, in his note to investors, Arcuri refers to this handset as the "iPhone X". In fact, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently published a research note that suggested Apple was looking to update the MacBook again before the end of the year. The Apple device will also let consumers use different gestures with the use of a touch-sensitive panel at the bottom of the screen, WCCFTech reports. This design would mark the iPhone's 10th anniversary. The latest leaks surrounding the iPhone 8 has tipped the device to sport an improved IPS rating, which will mean enhanced protection against dust and water.
