Is your iPhone 5 not lasting through the morning or afternoon? Does it feel like it’s lost some of its pep? Well you might be in luck. Apple is issuing a recall of sorts by offering free iPhone 5 battery replacements to affected devices. You can hit up Apple’s serial number look-up HERE to see if your device is eligible.

Like any other electronics maker, Apple has seen its fair share of recalls or repairs. It’s not uncommon. This recall started August 22nd in the US and China and will be opening up to other countries on August 29th. So if you’re not in the US or China be sure to bookmark that link so you can return to it on the 29th and claim your repair. Best to get on this ASAP as Apple sometimes makes these repair/recalls short. Spread the word to your friends and family as well.
