    Looks like a complete clickbait article. I wouldn't buy into it, looks to be total garbage.

    Plus, a major news source would've already brought attention to this if it was legitimate.

    It’s pure BS. There is no recall. There has never been a recall of an iPhone.

    I guess we will know if this is real next week, from the article:

    Company Officials are expected to formally announce the recall and its provisions sometime in the first week of November.

    Neither of those is a recall. A recall would require that a notice be sent to all iPhone 5 users telling them to bring their device in for repair/replacement. Apple is simply stating that there may be issues with these items on select devices with serial numbers in a specific range. This is nothing more than Apple standing behind their warranty and supporting their devices. Same as the manufacturer warranty. IF you have an issue, Apple will work to resolve it.

    I’m sure you’ll disagree with this post, and keep trolling. Do what you have to do. Just be honest about who you are and what your motives are.

    There is a recall. You need to disable activation lock, wipe your device and send them to me for disposal. PM me for the shipping address

    In all fairness, you're not really making rational arguments. Before a first recall, there was always a situation where there was never a recall. Saying there has never been a recall has NOTHING to do with whether or not there will be one now.

    The devices they are calling back for repair are nearly two years old. The warranty no longer exists. How are they honoring a warranty that doesn't exist?

    You're creating a very specific definition for recall in an attempt to make a point. The thing is, it's not a point that anyone else cares about. Personally, I'd prefer a company recall devices if unexpected problems arose. They are a part of aggressive design and I'd rather the issues be resolved.

    I do disagree with our posts. I'm an Apple user. My only motive is to convince you to make sound arguments when you represent Apple users so outsiders don't view us as ostriches putting our heads in the sand.

    I maybe would have argued the 4 could have or should have been. Unless people still believe attend gate was made up.

    Haha.. And that's exactly what they did.

    Let me teach you something. When a company offers to fix something for free that is no longer in warranty that is called a RECALL.

    How is the iPhone 5 still under warranty in 2014?

    The only way they will fix the battery and button issue until 2015 is to, eherrmm, RECALL!

    The iPhone 5 can't be repaired for free, it has no warranty and Apple can't honor something that doesn't exist. It has to be recalled.

    The only person being dishonest here is you.

    You're saying Apple is standing behind their warranty, when everyone reading this knows the iPhone 5 no longer has a warranty.

    You were wrong. Apple did recall the iPhone 5. Otherwise they can't fix it for free since it no longer has a warranty.

    Apple has recalled products forever. Nothing new about it.

    For you to say they have never recalled an iPhone is ludicrous.

    Now you're going to say "it's not a recall, it is a Battery Replacement Program" ahahahahaha

    Well the iPhone 5 was recalled because of a component failure. Apple has also issued RECALLS, for their MacBook just like they did with the iPhone 5.

    The iPhone 4 had the antenna issue and the home button issue. Not only would your signal die in areas where the signal wasn't 100% but everyone I know that had an iPhone 4 ended up with a broken home button. Mine was about 7 months old when the button went bad.

    That wasn't a recall because those parts weren't defective they were just designed badly.

    What they did was fix the problems for the iPhone 4s. They changed the button housing and they changed the antenna. My iPhone 4s is now 3 years and going with no button issues.

    My home button still worked on my iPhone 4 that I just traded in on Friday. I had it since launch, though I hadn't used it for the last 2.5 years.
