Apple offering iPhone 5 battery replacement for eligible devices

Recently Apple has admitted to a fault in the iPhone 5 (excluding 5S and 5C) battery. Eligible iPhone 5 holders may take their device to an Apple retailer and receive a replacement battery for free. Of course the user will need to schedule an appointment with them; the replacement batteries seem to operate much more effectively than the faulty ones originally in their place.

Here is a link to the eligibility check on Apple’s website.

With this being said, battery life has always been a top complaint for iOS users. Will the upcoming iPhone 6 have a much desired improved battery?

Apple has determined that a very small percentage of iPhone 5 devices may suddenly experience shorter battery life or need to be charged more frequently. The affected iPhone 5 devices were sold between September 2012 and January 2013 and fall within a limited serial number range.”
