If you have an iPhone 5 whose battery is quickly draining or shuts down with 30-50 % of the battery, it is possible to change it for free through Apple.
Because iDevice’s are far from being perfect, Apple sometimes organizes global programs through which you can fix hardware problems even after the warranty period has expired.
That’s what happened last year when the giant from Cupertino has decided to initiate a program of changing defect batteries on a significant number of iPhones 5. In principle, the phones are losing battery surprisingly fast and arbitrarily shutting down, these being clear evidence of problems with the battery.
Initially, the free battery exchange program was meant to end earlier this week, on March 1, 2015. Because the people at Apple have noticed that there is a major discrepancy between the number of terminals affected and the ones turned into a workshop so they have decided to extend this initiative. The new data you need to keep in mind is January 2016. In other words, you have more than nine months to bring your iPhone 5 to Noumax or iStyle to fix it.
Although it is unlikely you are using an iPhone 5 for such a long period of time, if you resisted the temptation to upgrade, you can check if your smartphone is eligible for free battery replacement by entering your Apple series on the support page.
