Apple says some buyers of its latest iPhone may experience shorter battery life due to a manufacturing defect on a 'very limited' number of models.
'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,' the company told The New York Times. 'We are reaching out to customers with affected phones and will provide them with a replacement phone.'
It's unclear just how many phones that is, and which models were affected.
CNET has contacted the company for more information.
