Apple Extend’s iPhone 5 Battery Replacement Program

When Apple launched its iPhone 5 battery replacement program last year, the company said that it would accept devices for replacement up to 2 years after purchase. Because the devices with the faulty batteries were sold between September 2012 and January 2013, 2 years from that date range would have given buyers until January 2015 to get their devices swapped. Apple has updated the copy on the page to state that replacements would be accepted for an additional year. The page now says that users may return their defective units until 3 years after the date of purchase, pushing the end date for the program back to January 2016 for those who bought their phones near the end of the time when affected models were sold.
