Bulging iPhone
Posted by: space-time
Date: July 13, 2016 03:53PM
iPhone 5, 3 year old. I noticed the screen is coming out, about 1 mm at the middle of long edges. Top and bottom edges seem fine. The screen is now convex, the back side of the phone is perfectly flat.

I guess swollen battery? Battery life seems normal. This phone is in a black case and I had 3-4 instances where it overheated when mounted to the windshield in the summer as I was driving. I usually move it down in the cup holder and it eventually cools down. Could that be the issu? Wife has an even older iPhone 5 but she never uses her in the car and her iPhone does not have this issue.

If you are experiencing shorter battery life, and I suspect you are, check out this Apple program:

Bring it to a store; they may replace it for you no questions asked.

Apple can be liberal about potentially dangerous battery issues like this, even out of warranty/AC.

I had two iPhone 5 phones with this problem. I brought them into the store (booked a Genius appointment first) and they were replaced on the spot. YMMV but they replaced the phones without issue.

Yes make an appointment, you won't get in to see a genius at most Apple Stores without one.
Backup your phone before you take it in or you will be disappointed.

Will try anyway. Thanks

The serial number you entered is not eligible under this program because either:
- It's not one of the serial numbers in the affected range
- Our records show that your battery has already been replaced. If you paid for a battery replacement service, check with Apple to see if you are eligible for a refund.

I think it's definitely worth a try to take it to a store. The bulge kind of speaks for itself.
