Apple won't say how many iPhone 5S smartphones are affected

Apple’s newest flagship smartphone, the iPhone 5S, promised excellent performance via its new 64-bit A7 processor while keeping battery consumption in check due helped in part by iOS 7. However, come unlucky iPhone 5S users are finding out that their battery life isn’t as long as they had hoped.

“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,” said Teresa Brewer, an Apple spokeswoman. “We are reaching out to customers with affected phones and will provide them with a replacement phone.”

Naturally, Apple hasn’t offered a specific number on how many handsets are affected. Whenever there is any problem discovered in Apple hardware or software, the company simply gives vague statements such as a “limited number” or a “small number” or a “fraction” of customers were affected.
Apple has publically acknowledged that it sold 9 million new iPhones in the first week the device is available. Indications are that perhaps a few thousand iPhone 5S models suffer from the manufacturing defect.

Another flaw that has been recently reported on the iPhone 5S causes a blue screen of death and an immediate reboot.
