Apple’s iPhone 5 Battery Replacement Program has been extended, as noted by iPhone in Canada. The program, which launched last August, replaces iPhone 5 batteries in select units free of charge — a serial number checker on the site confirms device eligibility. Initially, the program was set to run until March 1, 2015, but the program now claims to cover “affected iPhone 5 batteries for 3 years after the first retail sale of the unit.” The affected devices were sold between September 2012 and January 2013, which means the program will extend until January 2016 at the latest.
