Some iPhone 5 smart phones recalled due to shortening battery life

Having trouble with your iPhone 5 battery? You might be eligible for a free replacement.

Apple said "a very small percentage" of iPhone 5 smart phones may "suddenly experience shorter battery life or need to be charged more frequently."

Only iPhone 5 smart phones sold between September 2012 and January 2013 are eligible, and only those that fall within a certain range of serial numbers.

Apple has opened a website that allows people to determine whether their phones are eligible.
