What is happening to Apple? Ever since the arrival of iOS 8 and the two latest iPhone models, the Cupertino has been facing a bunch of problems like “bendgate” that needs no explanations, “hairgate” whereby the phone traps and pulls hairs, a buggy iOS 8.0.1 update that crashed the phone’s cellular service and Touch ID, and now, the 128GB flavors of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are reported to be crashing and are facing boot loop issues.
Certain users are reporting that their iPhone 6/6 Plus are crashing and will end up in a boot loop. The only way to resolve the problem was to visit an Apple Store and ask for a replacement. The problem appears to be affecting mainly 128GB models of both devices, particularly those with larger app libraries.
Apple has not mentioned anything about it so there’s no telling exactly what is wrong, but it is believed that the problem may lie in the new controller for the TLC (triple-level cell) NAND flash found inside the iPhones; previous generation iPhones uses MLC (multi-level cell) NAND flash, hence why those models were not affected. Many in the industry now believes that Apple might have a massive recall on 128GB iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models.
Will this affect your decision on which iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus models to buy?
