It seems that the newest member of the iPhone family, the iPhone 5s, is experiencing some manufacturing issues; as a small number of smartphone users experience problems with the battery. Currently there have been two issues reported, which include extremely short battery lives, along with prolonged charging times.

"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. We are reaching out to customers with affected phones and will provide them with a replacement phone," said Apple's spokeswoman, Teresa Brewer.

Because it's imposible to be 100% accurate on who's iPhone is actually having this problem, Apple decided not to open a webpage in which people could submit a replacement request. This is because the number of devices with this problem is "very limited". Apple said they would reach out to the affected customers directly.
