The New York Times, via 9to5Mac:

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

The exact number of affected devices is not known, and the company did not comment on what the manufacturing problem specifically was.

Apple sold 9 million iPhones total in the opening weekend of sales.

If your iPhone 5s is affected by this issue, you can most likely expect to be contacted by Apple very soon.

  1. Had an issue with my phone since the beginning, but two trips to the genius bar to get a new phone solved that. And they were *adamant* that there was no issue. BS.
