Is My battery defective>

I recently used IFixit's guide to replace my iPhone 6s battery, and the battery life, or speed did not improve. I can barely make it through half the day on minimal use. Should I ask for a replacement? Phone is still heating up to an insane amount and I don't know what to do.

Is this a good question?

there is always a possibility. Most often, if the device is heating up substantially, it is a short circuit, however, i will never say that that is the exact reason. in order to test the theory, you would need another battery.

if a second battery is causing the exact same issue, then you can 110% chop it up to a short circuit.

How would I go about asking Ifixit for another battery, would I use the warranty?


i dont use their parts, as my store is certified OEM warranty for LG Samsung, and Apple. i get OEM parts from the manufacturer direct. because of this, i cant 100% be sure how to go about this.

i would probably suggest going to their page on warranty support, and verify the policy covers it.

I don't work here. i just love the job
