iPhone 6's are mysteriously breaking right before iPhone 7 launch

The new iPhones are expected to arrive in September. What does that mean for iPhone 6 owners?

If you're one of the many Apple conspiracy theorists, you'll say it means your iPhone 6 will stop working, conveniently, weeks before the launch of the new iPhone.

Wouldn't you know it? A newly discovered bug is doing just that. This time around, it's causing multiple problems with the iPhone's TouchID sensors, including a grey bar flashing at the top of the screen, and (pardon the pun) touchy ID sensors.

Apple won't issue any fixes because it requires a physical fix; you'll have to re-attach and solder some tiny components inside the phone to correct the problem. Apple also won't fix it because affected phones are out of warranty.

You can, however, take the phone to a phone repair company like iFixit, who originally began reporting that so many devices are having this problem.

Or, if you're a brave DIY person, you can try and fix it yourself with the iFixit app. Click here to get it now.
