iPhone 5 rear

Heads up, iPhone 5 owners, because Apple has identified a problem with some of its iPhone 5 units that you should probably be aware of.

Apple today kicked off an iPhone 5 battery replacement program after admitting that “a very small percentage” of iPhone 5 units may begin experiencing shorter battery life or need to be charged more often. The devices that are affected by this issue were sold between September 2012 and January 2013.

In order to see if your iPhone 5 is one of the units affected by this battery issue, you can head to Apple’s dedicated support page and enter your iPhone’s serial number. You’ll be able to get your battery replaced at an Apple Authorized Service Provider or at an Apple retail store.

While the period during which these affected iPhone 5 units were sold is small, it also happens to include the holiday shopping season. Apple says that the affected devices “fall within a limited serial number range.” If you’ve been experiencing poor battery life with your iPhone 5 recently, it’s probably worth it to check and see if your device has a faulty battery.
