Apple says the new repair program covers a limited number of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices manufactured between October 2018 and August 2019. In certain instances, these devices might be unable to power on due to a “component that may fail.”

Here’s what Apple says about the program:

Apple has determined that certain iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices may not power on due to a component that may fail. This issue only affects devices within a limited serial number range that were manufactured between October 2018 to August 2019.

The program covers affected iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices for 2 years after the first retail sale of the unit.
