    I bet you anything that any other model phone from any other manufacturer constantly has some bad battery issues at initial release. It's just not emphasized because those companies aren't selling as many released devices as quickly as Apple.

    oh for sure! Having said that, being at the top also means you're likely to get all of your dirty laundry aired too. Just look at low profile celebs compared to high profile ones. At least we now know that it was a very limited number of handsets and we can all calm down now that the title has been corrected

    Well at least Apple recognized the batt issue and will reach out to owners and replace the unit. This is all good news.

    I'm glad they're doing something about it. Luckily, my launch day device has no battery issues or any other issues for that matteršŸ˜

    The Space Gray 5S was available in good supply on launch day, while the Silver and Gold models were not as easy to get. That has changed now and most can obtain these 2 models within a week or two from Apple or their wireless carrier.

    There's no "White" in the title of that classic. Pistols at dawn cowboy!

    P.S. Just a joke by the way.

    I know you'd like to think that (based on your thread in the 5c sub), but the 5S is pretty regularly available all over the map now.

    for apple is easy to know, probably just a batch of iphones manufactured on X day have the issues, they can know the "serials" of all the batteries that have the issues and can know in what iphones they put those batteries... so nothing hard for an organized company to do that.

    IMO, the "very limited" iphones with the issues can be 500, 1000, 5000, in the worst case all the iphones made in a week...

    I get 4 hours of usage on average. That makes no sense. It's just from browsing the net. I've been having these issues with all my iPhones except the iPhone 4.

    Oh how I wish that were true. The day that I can order a 5s on the Apple store app and pick up in store, I'll believe it.

    There's been a slew of problems with the 5s release. But you're lucky to have gotten one.

    yeah i wouldnt worry, you're not the only one who cant get hold of a 5S at the minute. I'm sure it'll sort itself out eventually.

    I'm not trying to be combative here. I really think your usage time of 4 hours is as good as it gets because based on many of your postings, you come off as a very heavy user of the phone. It makes perfect sense.

    Now I'm curious to see if you're actually "returning" it to get it replaced for another or going to use a different phone. I have a feeling if you get it replaced you're going to tell us what a dramatic improvement you've experienced with battery life.

    Give me a break. Nobody is lucky to have an iPhone 5S. Since release, I've come up on three without that big a problem. I've stayed quiet on this subject for a good chunk of time, but many people are overblowing the availability of the thing. It isn't that difficult.

    then you must be lucky. the only 2 stores in my state have a 2-3 week shipping wait... Actually no, i've just checked, its not only the state but the whole of Australia that has a 2-3 week wait. iPhone 5C however is 24 hours.
