Talking about the battery problem for the iPhone 5S, Apple accepted this fact and said that the problem occurred due to a manufacturing issue. Talking to The New York Times, Apple said that a small number of iPhone 5S units have been affected by this problem.
An Apple spokesperson acknowledged the problem and said a ‘ very limited number’ of units have been affected. But when talking to The New York Times, Apple said that this number is in a few thousands.
