Apple has launched an iPhone 5 battery replacement program. According to Apple, a limited number of iPhone 5s sold between September 2012 and January 2013 may experience a sudden decrease in battery life, requiring frequent recharges. Customers who believe their device may be affected can verify their device's eligibility through the serial number. Apple will replace the battery for free, or reimburse customers who paid to have the battery replaced on their own. Apple said the program is limited to batteries. iPhones with cracked screens or other problems will likely incur charges to have those separate issues resolved before the battery is replaced. The program launched in the U.S. and China on August 22, and will launch in other countries August 29.
Less than a year after the last "moto g power", Motorola already has a replacement ready to go. This affordable phone gives people their #1 request: more battery life.

It Just Works!
Couldn't help myself. Sorry.
I like to check the battery on my phone every 4-6 months. When I noticed a decrease in the amount of time my phone was holding a charge, I was able to remove it and discovered swelling which is an indication of potential worse scenerios. I went to the store and While out of warranty, I still recieved a free replacement and was in an out of the store within about 5 minutes. No time was wasted during my busy schedule.
How long do sealed battery customers have to wait for this type of repair? And if not repaired, How much to replace the handset?
Heavy gamers and users should be more attracted to the idea of removable batteries due to the wear and abuse.
But I still don't care about removable batteries because I don't have my phone more than a year at a time. So I don't get battery issues.
Now I'm going to change my tune a...
