According to Arabic Daily Emarat Al Youm, a campaign to recall 88,700 Apple iPhone 6S devices has been launched by the Ministry of Economy in cooperation with Apple.
The reason for the recall is said to be a fault in the battery. Apparently the devices were recalled after Apple informed the ministry that a certain line of iPhone 6S devices that were manufactured in China during the period of September to October 2015 contain a battery flaw that makes the phone shut down unexpectedly.

We’ve reached out to Apple for a comment on this and will update this post as we learn more.
The Cupertino brand isn’t the only one to have seen battery issues. Last year, Samsung’s Note 7 debacle was also blamed on faulty batteries from both its suppliers.
