Apple has launched an 'iPhone 5 Sleep/Wake Button Replacement Program' after determining that the sleep/wake button mechanism on a small percentage of iPhone 5 models may stop working or work intermittently.

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 your sleep/wake button isn’t working properly, you can enter your iPhone 5 serial number at the link below to see if it qualifies for the program. 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.

Replacement of the sleep/wake button mechanism is done at an Apple Repair Center. There are two ways to send your iPhone to the repair center—carry-in or mail-in. The replacement process takes approximately 4-6 days from the time your iPhone is received at the repair center until it is returned to you.

More details as well as instructions on how to send in you device can be found at the link below...

They got better but they got better by innovation, they're still working on AppleCare.

you can still go and claim the refund you spend for Sleep/wake button replacement even it was unauthorised service repair.

There is no problem with the Sleep/Wake button. You are all pressing the button wrong. Lol

How about a replacement programe for iPhone itself with Samsung ? Can apple do that since they admit its having problem and recalling the devices ? By the way, Samsung never had to do this. Quality speaks no wonder.

How about a replacement for the black hole universe of gaylaxy where every die hard originated? Can samshit just face it already after trying to invade what's already Apple's? Doesn't matter anyway, even with AppleCare getting the refurbished quality has never been more awesome compared to plastic toy makers, go figure!

It is "their" fault that they sold faulty equipment.

No, the engineers made it but mainly the os was too much for users to suffer, so they switched because of it.

Which faulty, the one that burns on it's own in the galaxy of lag, or the one that is just secure metal from infections to cause bugs?

John, didn't you know that Samsung boasts about their S5 camera and then had to admit that some units were blacking out. So please don't think that Samsung phones are perfect. No ones is.
