Apple recalls iPhone 5 Batteries, Replaces for Free


#TaniaOnTheScene — iPhone users can vouch for the fact that the battery life on the 5 is horrible. I’m one of the people who has to walk around with a portable charger for extra juice. If you have to do the same, or are constantly looking for an outlet, you’re not alone, and there may be a way to fix it.

The electronics giant said it has determined that a “small percentage” of iPhone 5 devices sold between September 2012 and January 2013 have faulty batteries that drain quickly.”
