Apple to replace blurry iPhone 6 Plus cameras

To check if they their handset is eligible for replacement an iPhone 6 Plus owner must check their device’s serial number and enter it on Apple’s website.

Back in November last year, some iPhone 6 Plus buyers reported that their handset’s rear cameras have focusing issues, resulting in blurry photos. Now, after three quarters, Apple finally acknowledged the problem and promised to replace the faulty cameras.

In a statement on Apple’s website, we can read as follows: “Apple has determined that, in a small percentage of iPhone 6 Plus devices, the iSight camera has a component that may fail causing your photos to look blurry. The affected units fall into a limited serial number range and were sold primarily between September 2014 and January 2015.  If your iPhone 6 Plus is producing blurry photos and falls into the eligible serial number range, Apple will replace your device’s iSight camera, free of charge.”

In other words, in order to be eligible for camera replacement, an iPhone 6 Plus owner must check their device’s serial number and enter it on Apple’s website. Should the checkup turn positive, they will need to take it to an Apple authorized service provider, Apple retail store, or talk to Apple technical support. Carriers are not involved in this program.
