Apple confesses that iPhone 5S battery is knackered
Apple fans are forever hailing their products - especially iPhones - because 'they just work'. Well, with 'blue screen of death' and occasional exploding parts, that doesn't seem to be the case. And now, the company has admitted that some iPhone 5S models are suffering from battery problems, and they're willing to replace those affected.
Those who couldn't wait to get their mucky paws on the new phone have complained that their batteries have been draining quicker than ever. Some users have noted that their phone only lasts for 3 hours with others saying that their battery is draining 20% ever hour.
This flies in the face of Apple's claims that these new phones should last 25% longer than previous handsets.
An Apple spokesperson came clean and said that there's an iPhone 5S battery problem: "We recently discovered a manufacturing issue affecting a very limited number of iPhone 5S devices that could cause the battery to take longer to charge or result in reduced battery life."
"We are reaching out to customers with affected phones and will provide them with a replacement phone."
