Apple makes battery replacement program longer

Apple makes battery replacement program longer

Apple is known for making flawless products but the company is run by humans who sometimes make mistakes and release products that perform sub-par. This is the case with the iPhone 5 – some models have been shipped with faulty batteries that drain much more quickly than “regular” batteries, making you charge your device more often.

Apple is aware of the problem and a while ago it presented a battery replacement program.  The program allows all owners of the affected model to get a new battery up to two years from the date of purchase. This means that the last day to get your battery replaced was March 1, 2015.

Now if you haven’t gotten your new battery just yet you are in luck – Apple has officially extended the program until January 2016, which means you still have about a year to solve this issue, given that you are affected by it.

If you are not sure whether you have the problem you can go to Apple’s web site here, enter your smartphone serial number and then see the result. Like we said, if you have the problem, you can still have your iPhone 5 battery exchanged.
