Some of the users of the new iPhone 5S were found complaining about some issues related to their battery. And Apple takes no time to come up with the investigation revealing the main cause.

According to Mac Rumors, an Apple spokeswoman has informed that the flaw in the manufacturing process is responsible for the battery issue, including a reduced battery life and taking a long time to be charged.

Teresa Brewer, an Apple spokeswoman, said “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”. She added”We are reaching out to customers with affected phones and will provide them with a replacement phone.”

Apple hasn’t mentioned the actual number of the affected iPhones. But the New York Times states that a few thousand users are affected by the battery issue, out of the millions of users.

Apple is expected to provide the affected users with replacement phones within a short period of time.
