If Your iPhone 5S Has Bad Battery, Apple Will Replace It

Just a short time after their release in October, there are already millions of iPhone 5S on the street. Unfortunately, some of them left the factory with a bad battery. Apple Balla confirmed this information, and explained that the company plans on replacing each affected phone with the new one.

Apple said that the problem was a “manufacturing issue”. Bad batteries will cause the iPhones to take more time to charge or its battery will have shorter life.

While Apple’s spokesperson did not go into details how exactly is Apple planning to effect the replacement of phones with faulty battery, it appears that they plan on using the handsets’ serial numbers. The database contains the information on the serial numbers of phones which received bad battery, as well as information on who bought such phones.

Customers who bought phones with the faulty battery issue will get a call from an Apple’s representative, who will suggest a mode of exchange. Customers who believe that their phone is affected too, but who did not get the call should call AppleCare themselves. They will qualify for the new phone if the serial number of their phone is registered as one of those with a bad battery.

If your phone is not in the database, and its battery is misbehaving, you are out of luck. Your ‘issue’ will be treated with the standard troubleshooting.

Just how many iPhone 5S are having the battery problem is not known.  According to Apple, the number is limited.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
