The Apple iPhone 5 has an issue with the power button, where some users are finding that the button just stops working. Apple are now going to address the issue by replacing buttons on qualifying devices, they’ve said the following about it all.
Apple has determined that the sleep/wake button mechanism on a small percentage of iPhone 5 models may stop working or work intermittently. iPhone 5 models manufactured through March 2013 may be affected by this issue.
Apple will replace the sleep/wake button mechanism, free of charge, on iPhone 5 models that exhibit this issue and have a qualifying serial number.
If you’re wondering where the power button is Apple have got you covered.
At the moment this replacement scheme only covers the US and Canada, but further countries will apparently follow.
As of April 25, 2014, the replacement process will be available in the U.S. and Canada. In other countries, it will be available as of May 2, 2014.
Hats off to Apple for replacing these buttons on an older device. For more info head over to the source link below.
