Apple has confirmed that a limited number of iPhone 5s handsets may experience shortened battery life due to a problem in manufacturing.
“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.
