A ‘limited number’ of iPhone 5Ss have been hit with battery issues

Apple says that a small number of iPhone 5S units are experiencing unusual battery drain issues. According to a spokesperson for the company, there’s a manufacturing issue “that could cause the battery to take longer to charge or result in reduced battery life”.

Anyone affected by the issue will receive a free replacement phone from Apple, but the company didn’t say exactly how many phones have been affected. If you’re seeing battery issues with your brand new iPhone 5S, then it may be worth booking a Genius Bar appointment.
