iPhone 5 Battery Replacement Program

On August 22 2014 Apple rolled out a free battery replacement program for a small number of iPhone 5 devices that are having shorter than expected battery life. If you have an iPhone 5 that has a much shorter battery life than it used to or you find yourself charging your iPhone 5 much more often than when you first got the phone then you may be eligible. Here is how to check to see if your phone is eligible:

  1. Go to the Apple iPhone 5 Battery Replacement Program support page here
  2. Enter your iPhone 5 serial number in the entry field on the Apple support page
  3. Take your iPhone 5 into an Apple Store (by making an appointment at an Apple Genius Bar) or taking your phone into an Apple Authorized Service Provider

FaceBook Battery Drain on iOS

 I'm sure at some point FaceBook will fix this issue with their App. In the mean time I am actually enjoying NOT having FaceBook on my iPhone, afterall I do still have it on my iPad. Checking in on FaceBook once or twice a day only using my iPad is more than enough and the iPad battery is much "tougher" and can therefore take the extra battery drain punishment the FaceBook app seems be dishing out right now.
