Apple recalls iPhones for battery drain issue

Don't Waste Your Money

iPhone owners have been complaining about battery drain issues ever since the iPhone 5 came out, and again when Apple released the IOS-7 update.

In most cases, there  is very little you can do about it, short of turning down your screen brightness and turning off email push alerts.

Rare iPhone recall

But Apple now says said it will replace batteries on some early iPhone 5's, due to a growing number of complaints about the battery not lasting a full work day.

Unlike with many Android phones, an iPhone owner cannot simply open the back and pop out the battery.

So the company is recalling iPhone 5's sold between September 2012 and January 2013.

The update iPhone 5S and 5C are not part of this recall. And this does not involve battery drain issues associated with the IOS7 upgrade.

But if you have an early iPhone 5, you can check Apple's website (click here) to see if yours is part of the recall, and where you can get your battery replaced.

That way you don't waste your money.
