Battery issues on some iPhone 5s units confirmed by Apple, blamed on manufacturing defect

Apple has confirmed that some iPhone 5s units are suffering from poor battery life owing to a manufacturing error.

Battery issues are quite common on new releases of iOS, but the iPhone 5s situation is hardware related and cause reduced battery life and long charging times. Apple issued a statement to The New York Times acknowledging that a small number of iPhone 5s units are affected by a production issue, and will be replacing these defective units.

“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,” said Apple spokesperson Teresa Brewer. “We are reaching out to customers with affected phones and will provide them with a replacement phone.”

Apple didn’t dive into details of the manufacturing flaw, but an official acknowledgement should come as relief to those who unluckily received a faulty unit, though hopefully those replacements will arrive in a timely manner, because we all know how irritating poor battery life on our smartphones can be.
