The Apple iPhone 5S is supposed to have significantly longer battery life than its predecessors. But for a small number of the new models, a manufacturing defect has caused the battery to drain quickly, according to the company. Apple did not say how many iPhones were defective, but its statement implied that it was a few thousand phones. The company has faced problems with defective batteries in the past.
