Apple today said it will replace the batteries on its iPhone 5 after a number of users complained they were experiencing a poor battery life performance.
It had previously replaced the sleep/wake button on a number of models in April.
Apple says the number is a "very small percentage of iPhone 5 devices" which are seeing poor battery life, but it is also attempting to get ahead of any larger debacle over frustrations from users over the battery's performance.
The result of the poor battery performance is that many users have reported the need to frequently charge the device to maintain its functionality.
Users can go onto Apple's website and discover if the iPhone 5 they purchased between September 2012 and January 2013 is among those devices affected by the "recall." Using the phone's serial number, a user can determine if their device qualifies for a battery replacement.
