Apple has reportedly returned five to eight million defective iPhones to Foxconn, according to a China Business report relayed by The Register.

Details of just what went wrong are sketchy, as the source for this tale is an anonymous Foxconn staffer chatting to China Business. That report, after being forced through a couple of translation engines, suggests Apple sent back at least five million iPhones, and maybe as many as eight million, “due to appearance of substandard or dysfunctional problems.”

It's unclear which iPhone model exhibited the manufacturing defect; however, the site did say that the situation was further bad news for Foxconn; rather than being the reason for recently reported financial difficulties.

I had to change my iphone 5 three times so far. The power button would work intermittent at times. I took it back and it changed with ease like I wasn't the only one who was having this problem. Purchase date week one. Last exchange last month

its scruff gate they fucked up when they put that metal rim instead they should change the rim into one solid unibody like the back of the iphone 5 all around.

Most probably the defect is iPhone 5s are having trouble with network.. I changed my phone twice because of that.. Whenever you are in lockscreen phone starts searching for network.. After changing my phone twice, third time I am not facing this problem first I thought its the sim card so I changed SIM card.. Didn't work out.. Restored ... Didn't work out.. Changing the phone third time solves it.. I don't know why apple mentioning the problem to the consumers about it..
