More PR FUD from Apple. Ever notice that Apple never gives the exact information when it comes to bad news?
Is that a very limited big number or very limited small number?
They know exactly how many phones have this problem, so why not come out and say it?
Berariu91, 30 Oct 2013The problem is not only in the iPhone 5s. It's in every IOS 7 device and it can be solved with... moreI beg to differ my friend . i am using IOS 7.03 on my iphone 5 and battery life for me has improved slightly , compared to last version of the IOS6 . though overall still battery life is quite bad , downright pathetic . now in dilemma if to get a new phone this year or should jump the android bangwagon .

The problem is not only in the iPhone 5s. It's in every IOS 7 device and it can be solved with an software update
What is this? Ever since Jobs is gone....Every once in a blue moon.....Apple admits there is a fault....Is this a dream?

Say the number is 10,000 devices that are affected and let's assume... moreThey will then send the faulty devices as brand new devices to third World countries...
My ipod touch 4 got same problem years before no cure no replacement. Same situation even after battery replacement though 3rd party repair.
der, 30 Oct 2013Got a battery charging problem? Go airplane mode. #lifehackWon't that turn the iPhone into an expensive iPod Touch?
harlekkin, 30 Oct 2013What are you on about? Say the number is 10,000 devices that are affected and let's assume... moreYup but in manufacturing we calculate in ppm(part per million). Normally we will target around 5 ppm maximum. So in your case Apple would have 500 ppm. Which is astonishingly really bad.

Say the number is 10,000 devices that are affected and let's assume we now have 20,000,000 devices in circulation - you do the maths:
That is indeed a small number. Statistically insignificant.
It is commendable that Apple is reaching out to those that are affected and are offering them replacements. That's still quite a bit of effort for a company to do, but they are doing the right thing which is great.
