The iPhone 6 Plus is not the only Apple device having a repair program; the company just unveiled a free battery replacement program for the iPhone 6s. 

On its support page, Apple states that "a very small number of iPhone 6s devices" may experience unexpected shutdowns. Only devices within a limited serial number range manufactured between September and October 2015 are affected. The iPhone maker also emphasizes that it's not a safety issue.

Apple advises customers who experienced this issue to visit an authorized service provider and have the device's serial number checked to confirm eligibility. If you've previously paid to replace the battery, Apple will do a refund. The free battery replacement program covers affected iPhone 6s batteries for three years after the first retail sale of the device.
