Manufacturer says a number of early iPhone 5 handsets are affected by issue which effects battery performance
Apple says it is replacing a “very small percentage” of iPhone 5 batteries which have issues which effect battery life and need to be charged more frequently.
The affected devices were sold between September 2012 and January 2013 and are within a limited serial number range, according to the manufacturer.
The battery replacement scheme is already underway at Apple stores and authorised service providers and will launch in other countries on August 29th.
Consumers can check whether they have a handset which is eligible for an upgrade through the Apple website.
