iPhone 5 - Power Button Defect

This petition is regarding the defect on iPhone 5 power button which wears out in about 13-14 months of usage just after you go out of warranty. Apple is aware of this issue but chooses not to accept this as a defect. Affected users have to pay $269 USD or equivalent in other currencies to replace their phone with a refurbished phone. There is no repair option according to Apple.

We, the signers of this petition are very upset and believe Apple needs to take action or will lose our loyalty.

We believe if the number of votes goes high enough, Apple may start a recall program. Please encourage anyone experiencing this problem to sign this petition here.

Please note, we are NOT against Apple, nor trying to destroy Apple's reputation here. We have contacted Apple Customer Support and tried to resolve the matter with Apple first but Apple is taking the stance of "not my problem" and has instructed their Genius and Management staff to blame the customer for not having bought extended AppleCare coverage.

Please sign the petition only if you are affected:

Your Name (Required but only the first few letters of your name will be shown to the public)

Your Comment (Public)

Your Email (Required but will not be shown to the public)

Your Region (Public)

- By Signing this, I certify that my iPhone 5 has the issue mentioned above and officially asking Apple to issue a re-call program to fix this problem.

My button stopped working so I never shut the phone down, finally it shut itself down and now all my contacts and information is stuck in there. I bought a new phone but I believe the Apple should repair these phones or replace them if they acknowledge the defect.

 My iPhone has been fine over the months. Recently a problem has occurred tho. My phone now constantly goes into sleep mode or asks if I want to power off and when I hit the power button sometimes it doesn't go off at all. I've had my phone for a year and a half now so my warranty is up and have to pay another 200-300$ just to fix the power.

Dear Apple,

I have owned my iPhone 5 for a little over a year. Just last week the power button stopped working and now I cannot turn the phone off. I have never dropped my phone on a floor, pavement, or into a liquid. Please. Please, issue a recall. This is a horrible problem. I am a loyal Apple customer and own many Apple products, including an iMac and everything has worked perfectly. Please show your iPhone 5 customers how much you appreciate their business by issuing a recall.

Most sincerley,

~Will Burnham

Extremely dissappointed with Apple's quality control and customer service.  For an $800 phone, this problem should not exist more than it does.  I expected more than "you should of bought extended AppleCare coverage" from an Apple Store representative.

I do affected by this faulty button, just about 13 month the warrenty goes out and this button started not able to shut down, I had to try many time to push the button, sometime it worked sometime it won't, I went to the store, they tried to sell me a new "same old model of iPhone 5" for couple hundred dollars. 

baw*** USA 2014-05-05 16:48:05
Took my iphone 5 for repair on sleep button, they gave me the lowest level memory "loaner" that does not work. They promised 5 - 7 days to fix, still waiting day 7 and they don't know when available. Local store manager will not answer phone and the folks at Apple are RUDE about the whole thing - tell me if I had bought Apple Care I wouldn't have had to get a repair. Local store has NO IDEA when phone will be returned. If you go into store to ask for help, they tell you to make an appointment and come back another day.

Apple should replace such devices for free and pay every customer 500 $ for inconvinence.

I have been using the iphone 5 for exactly 14 months and my power button got deffective.  sometime it is wokring and sometime not. it is very disturbing , that you are buying the precious brand and you getting this from them. its not worth it i guess. it better to use cheap phone and your mind will be satisfied.


Apple should do something about it , and one more thing apple should give warrantly of phone fore 2 to 3 years .

Davi*** England 2014-04-24 13:45:19

After 13 months the power button on my wife's phone is not working and the one on mine now only works sporadically, there is clearly a defect with the design of this phone. Apple Store staff and customer services unhelpful. We have been loyal Apple customers for many years and have bought many Apple products but the arrogance and smugness of Apple's response to this issue have finally made us see the light! Needless to say the Iphone 5 will be the final Apple purchase we make.

 I had nothing but problems since day 1 with my iPhone 5. It was replaced 3 times; twice for charging issues after 2 weeks of owning it, and once for the lock button, and after 10 months since the last replacement, I have the same problem with the lock button, but obviously, I have no more warranty.

My original iPhone5 was replaced under warranty due to a camera defect, now less than 8 months after recieving this 'new' replacement phone from Apple my power button has failed and my battery is on its last legs.  Apple claims that because my original iPhone was purchased over 12 months ago I'm outside of the warranty period (even though this phone that they gave me as a replacement is only 7.5 months old).  I'm pissed and the only thing I can do is hold out for my next upgrade.

Mich*** Cleveland, OH 2014-04-20 11:30:14

 My lock button stopped working about two weeks ago, so I immediately went into my local Apple Store only to find out I would have to pay $179 dollars to get it repaired. Also, I was told I should have purchased Apple Care for instances like this. Wait a second, I'm confused. I thought Apple Care was to cover the phone if it became physically damaged or broken? I have a perfectly flawless looking iPhone 5. It's always been taken care of (as I do with all of my devices) so how is this damage that I have caused? It's a faulty device. I'm sickened by the lack of support Apple has provided. After doing a 'Reset All Settings' in the store, my phone worked normally for one day. The lock button no longer works again, Siri is constantly saying 'I'm very sorry about this, but I can't take any requests at this time', and my phone's performance is running unbelievably slow. Not to mention it takes about 5 or 6 open/close on e-mails to get the notification badge to go away. I've been an iPhone user since 2007 and for the first time, I'm debating on making the switch (although I don't want to because iPhone is all I've ever known). Don't even get me started on iOS 7...ugh, I'm so tired of faulty software and devices from Apple. WHAT HAPPENED?

I'm in the same boat as everyone else. I think for some at least, this comes down to a lint issue. Apple knows phones go in pockets and what else is in there? Lint. And that's what gets under buttons. Apple should be aware and they should have an easier remedy than buying a new phone.

My Iphone 5 power button started acting up about 8 months since it was purchased. It got worse as time went on and will only work if I push real hard on the left side. Now past the one year warranty I went to the genius bar and got a very disingenuous run around to say the least. They tried to deny that it was a defect which direct eye contact rectified and then said basically there is nothing they could but sell me another phone.

Now, I have been a loyal Apple customer for many years (love the products) and have spent well into the 5 digits on their towers, laptops and other devices. Furthermore, I made many Apple recommendations to other companies for their computers. I have also spent money on Apple products as gifts for family and friends........this I will no longer do.

I use Power macs for work and will most likely continue because that\'s what we use in my profession and the alternatives would be self defeating.

Finally, I\'m an Apple shareholder and it pains me to sign a petition like this but Steve\'s not here anymore and something has to be done.

 Apple's "not my problem" attitude is disappointing. We buy their products at inflated costs expecting excellent customer service and quality. Sadly, in the case of smartphones both of these selling points seem to no longer hold true. My iphone 5's on/off button stopped working within 10 months but I thought that the problem was due to the case. Now it's too late. Nonetheless, my first generation iPhone's hardware is still perfectly responsive. Apple, please rethink your position on this issue.

Very frustrating and extremely demoralizing when being an apple product supporter and having all 3 iPhones die just out of warranty.

I thought I might be able to find a quick fix for my iPhone 5 for what I thought might be dust that was causing the power button to work on rare occasions. I have had Macs since they were introduced and an IPhone when it was first released, what I'm finding out is that Apple is finally taking the low road and if they continue to ignore issues such as this, rather than doing the right thing, they are doomed. It doesn't take long for something like this to leak out to the media.

Trac*** Manchester, England 2014-04-06 09:14:04

 My power button broke about 2-3 months ago just after installing the latest update. I've had the phone 19 months now. I've also had massive problems with battery life that haven't been solved by my carrier's technical support team.

Apple quoted me £216 to fix it but also told me that I am protected by consumer law and I should go back to my carrier for a replacement phone. Although the manufacturers warranty was over, consumer law covers me for between 2 and 6 years for a faulty product.

So I contacted my carrier and after a few phone calls and refusing their alternatives I ended up getting an upgrade 6 months early at no cost and a brand new Samsung Galaxy S5... Just waiting for delivery now. I will never buy an iphone again, as soon as I hit a year of ownership the problems started.

Apple you need to sort this out, it's unacceptable

Chri*** Los Angeles 2014-04-05 00:02:08

I was using the 7.1 betas (I'm a developer) and everything was perfectly fine.  The moment I installed the GM of iOS 7.1 my power button stopped working.  Yesterday I took it to an Apple Store and they ran some tests, did a DFU and still it does not work.  So since I've had the phone over a year I'm out of warranty and they told me I could pay $269 for a repair.  Not happening. 


So Apple if you're listening - you've got to figure out what's going on so we can get our phones to work again.

Just on 12 months owning my iPhone 5, and to find my on off button does not work. Quiet disappointed that such an expensive phone has this type of problem. Also bought my phone overseas which now gives me no warranty in Australia. I paid for it like everyone else so should have the same rights seeing apple is an international company. . Have owned much cheaper phones with not a problem. Now I can understand why Apple stores are so busy. Perhaps Apple should have a look at the problems and try to rectify them.

Just*** Ohio 2014-04-02 20:00:32

 Like everyone else my power button has went out at the end of my warranty. 

Warr*** Arizona 2014-04-02 19:27:39

 Same problem.  The power button problem started before warranty ended, but  I thought it was the case. Got new case. No difference. Warrenty just ran out (1 yr). Apple says:  there is no evidence of phone abuse, but : Sorry sucker, You should have  bought  the extended warranty for this crappy product.

I have bought over a dozen Apple computers, and nearly as many  iphones & ipods & ipads. Rarely have I had a problem before. THIS is clearly a design flaw, based on the thousands of reports of this issue I've seen. I understand they had the same problen with the iphone4,  though even more pervasively, but declined to have a recall then as well.

If Apple doesn't want to fix it, their going to lose a lot of people in their customer base, including me. You're not the only  game in the market anymore,Apple, and evidently, you don't have  the best product anymore either.

My iPhone 5 is now under two years old...kept in mint condition, always used carefully, with protective cover etc. Power button fails now same way as many has reported, needs to push it multiple times. Works better if pressed the left corner of the button. For the price of this device...can't really tolerate this. I'd say this investment should keep working for at least full two years without this kind of a problem! I'd understand this fault better if you use your phone like a hammer...but this has been always used with care...

Zoe*** America 2014-03-26 21:58:41

 I can't believe Apple is still igoring this, this is a ajor defect on their sidde. We have spent our hard earned money on a phone with a defect that we have to pay an unreasonable amount of money to fix. I hope Apple comes to their senses.

 This is very disappointing. On a regular normal morning, I checked my phone for any pertinent messages for the day, and only to find out my phone\\\'s stuck on the apple symbol. I couldn\\\'t open my phone. Power button\\\'s not functioning. If there were massive factory defect, Apple should be ethical enough to recall and replace the iPhone 5. I\\\'ve been to and contacted their service centers here in Philippines, and to my disgust, they all can\\\'t do anything, saying, have it replaced instead. I\\\'m hating Apple so much for this. If they\\\'re doing this to milk their consumers, then it's wise not to invest on their products anymore, rather go for competing products in the market who would provide genuine and sincere service.

Otherwise you can activate the AssistiveTouch.

I hope Apple will make a recall

kevi*** Missouri, U.S.A. 2014-03-25 14:00:47

 this has happened to every iPhone I have owned, and it is to the point now that I will never purchase another iPhone, because they'd seem cheaply made and apple does not seem to support their user base unless it comes to buying new products. While it's great to look ahead with technology, you should also look to supporting your current devices more too.

Robe*** New york 2014-03-25 13:53:33

 Ground hogs day! This is my fourth iphone for me and my wife. Every single one has had an apparent problem of some kind! Hoping with each new phone that it would be different, and that apple would do the right thing by recalling known problems. As I see many of my friends and family one by one switching to android, i am now resolved to making the switch as well! Maybe apple will get the hint?

Shau*** Alaska 2014-03-25 13:49:33

Going to need a sledge hammer next to get the button to respond. Just another reason for me to stop using Apple producs all together.

Mike*** 2014-03-23 19:19:26

This problem started right as my warranty ended and within a month or two after, i'd have to press very hard on the left side of the button several times to get it to do anything. This is a common problem among iPhones (I have an iPhone 5) and has been for quite some time. It's a disgrace that Apple hasn't really addressed this issue yet and speaks volumes to the notion that they don't really care about the customer, but only how they look to others as a company.

Apple wanted to charge 260 dollars to 'fix' the problem by replacing my phone with a refurbished one. For one thing, I took incredibly good care of my phone. I've never dropped it or abused it and it still looks like new. I refuse to accept a refurbished phone, which probably would not match the condition of my own, and it wasn't even my fault in the first place that this happened. This solution was pretty ghetto and uncharacteristic of a so called high profile company.

Anyway, I took my phone to CPR in Carmel IN close to where I live, and I got it repaired within an hour and for only 50 dollars. This thing is like new again. My advice? Don't settle for paying Apple a load of cash for a refurbished phone replacement. Take it to a decent cell phone repair place and get it done for much cheaper, while keeping your own phone.

Nath*** Grapevine TX 2014-03-23 16:19:06

 Started having the ocasional problems with power switch just working half the time and then it just stopped working altogether.  So I made my appointment with the Genius bar and took the iphone 5 to the nearest apple store.  I of course was out of warranty!  The guy proceeded to tell me that the issue wasn\\\'t that bad and told me there was no fix for the problem.  I would consider a power switch very important on any electronic device!  I have been a loyal apple supporter for years now and have had good experiences with apple in the past, but this time it was the $269 charge for refurbished replacement!  Come on Apple and step up!   I want to continue to use apple  products, but if you can\\\'t turn them on its kinda hard!

I have been using Apple products since 1989, and booked in an appointment with the Genius bar at my local Apple Store, and even after summoning a manager as the sales assistant was worse than useless, showed absolutely no interest whatsoever, it didn't make the slightest bit of difference that we have a house full of current Apple products, and was going to purchase a Macbook Air for my daughter when she ventures off to Uni.

Bottom line is Apple will not be getting any of my future business, and in the process of switching mobile from IOS to either a sony or samsung, and as we replace IT at home will be giving Apple kit a wide berth...

This is a great opportunity for the competition to get a grip and start to gain market share, and although apple produce very intuitive kit, it is severely let down by poor quality control, and substandard manufacturing processes.

 I\'m getting around some of the issues by using the assistive touch option. Settings, general , accessibility physical &motor , assistive touch. The new onscreen button allows me to take screenshots, which I use often to enable me to send onscreen information and web page details etc quickly. I can also lock the screen and more from turning on this option.its not ideal and of course I shouldn\'t have to after spending £1200 with network whilst buying on two yr contract.  Just had call from network whilst writing this and they\'ve agreed to replace. Will post details when it\'s happened.

And its also a matter of security and privacy, the phone you thought you have locked and kept in the front shirt pocket just dials..

This is obviously a manufacturer\'s defect that Apple refuses to acknowledge. When I visited my local Apple store to discuss my power button malfunction, there were two other iPhone 5 users at the Genius Bar with the same exact problem (makes you wonder how many people visit Apple stores on a daily basis seeking assistance with this problem). Since my phone was no longer under warranty, I was offered a \"refurbished\" iPhone 5 at a cost of US$268.00 which I declined. These \"refurbished\" iphones are probably phones that have been traded in for a \"refurbished\" phone, have had the power button repaired and are being resold to unsuspecting iPhone 5 users. The problems with the iPhone 5 appear to be a cash cow for Apple.

I bought iphone 5 in December 2012 from Apple Store,India, and since Feb 2014 onwards my phone's power button has stopped working. I don't have apple protection plan, but I was neither expecting this problem, as I am using my phone very generously. I visited the nearest Apple Store , and they said that no repair was available. The only thing that was possible was a replacement for Rs. 19,000 (Indian currency) i.e. $300 around. I've already paid 50,000 for the phone and now they're asking me 20,000 more for the replacement instead of repairing it.

I'm a loyal customer of Apple, and I expect some decent resolution for this problem. Please help.

Phil*** Canada 2014-03-15 17:59:38

 Happened twice. First time after 6 months. Apple replaced under warranty. Happened again after 12 months. Had to pay $269 for a replacement. Clearly this is a defect with the phone itself. 

D*** US 2014-03-15 12:05:54

Power button worked intermittently for a while, now almost not at all. Have a Square Trade warranty so will have it fixed/replaced, but shouldn\'t have to even pay for that given it is an obvious manufacturer\'s defect.

Apple is quickly losing its credibility by not owning up to this.

Davi*** Chicago 2014-03-15 04:20:16

 My power button works only after pushing it about 3-4 times.

Kris*** New York, USA 2014-03-14 16:52:56

 I've had my iPhone 5 now since release day ( I actually went out of my way to goto an apple store to get the one I wanted, a 64GB in black) and it's been treated better than ever, it doesn't know what a hard surface feels like (the phone looks as nice as the day I bought it) yet recently as of just Nov of 2013, the power button started to not work, back then it was only on the right side. now as of March 2014 the whole button requires an extremely firm push just to turn off or restart. this is absolutely rediculous, I've had an iphone for every generation since they came out, and this is the only one that is giving me this kind of problem!!!! you take nearly 1000$ of my money for the 64gig model and this is what happens to it after a year!?!?!?!?!?!

Maya*** India 2014-03-14 13:49:12

 My iPhone 5 is just two months out of warranty and the power button has stopped working. It works only if pressed hard or attempted three or four times

Same problem! Power button doesnt work anymore. Noticed it on my 13th month, had it for a 2-yr contract and my service provider told me that i cannot get any replacement for free!! I am a loyal apple user but after this I dont have any reasons to continue patrionizing their product. Apple products are very expensive so I think we, the customers deserve a replacement for free!!!!

C Gr*** Uk 2014-03-12 07:26:55

Alfr*** California 2014-03-11 23:51:27

 I noticed the problem within a month of getting it brand new.  It was intermittent for about a year so I couldn't really prove that it was defective at the Apple store.  After a year it has completely stopped working.

Rick*** USA 2014-03-11 22:28:47

My button has gotten progressively worse, right after the warranty ended.

Vik *** US 2014-03-11 13:49:40

My iphone would first have a slow lock button after 14 months and then 2 months later the button became overly sensitve where it would lock and unlock repeatedly without any stopping. 

Andr*** Utah 2014-03-11 11:58:57

 Phone button went out two days after warranty expired. Sales rep at the store basically blamed us for buying the extended care package. Flat out chastised us by saying the $99 for extended warrenty seems like a good idea now, doesn\'t it.

 Same issues as everyone else.  Purchased 2 iPhone 5 models in December of 2012.  Both of these have had the sleep button responsiveness degrade 10 months into use, and now, after 14 months are not usable.  I went to the Woodcliff Lake, NJ Apple Store at the Genuis Bar and was told that since I was out of warranty there is nothing that can be done to fix it without purchasing a replacement for $269 each.  I am supremely disappointed with Apple and their response to this.

keta*** INDIA 2014-03-07 05:42:45

 I've been a loyal Apple user for more than a decade. I too experienced the power button issue after the warranty expired. The Genius Bar only tried to sell me a different phone. Apple online said the same. Verizon even opened the phone and tried to fix it unsuccessfully. Shame on Apple for not taking care of this. I know you can, because you recalled and replaced my 2G iPod nano. Please help!

My iphone 5 power button stated acting strange  - not working 40-50% of the time on first push.  This was in Late November, about a month remaining in the warranty period.  I got busy for the holidays and did not take my phone in.  Now the button has stopped working completely.  I went in with my Dad to the Apple store and they would not do anything, because it was not in warranty.  They told us we should have bought AppleCare.  This was really irritating that Apple knows this is a problem for a lot of people.  There is a design flaw in their product, but they do not stand behind their products.  As an Apple share holder, this makes me mad.  Apple should stand behing products that are defective.

Bran*** Vermont 2014-03-02 15:16:08

My power button on my iPhone 5 does not work 90% of the time. I have to gingerly depress the left side and hope it engages. I've been scared I would not be able to turn it back on if I got it off (just remembered I could plug it in to restart it) and have been praying it lasts long enough to get a new device. It makes me rethink buying another iPhone, which is a shame because iTunes is my preferred market.

My son's 4th gen iPod Touch home button just broke today too. We hear a tiny rattle inside. The plastic shim must have broken free from the button inside. He's forced to revert to assistive touch to get back to his home screen.

Apple needs to fix these mechanical problems for their next devices and issue a recall on existing ones. This is completely unacceptable.

Apple blamed my OtterBox. I have a suspicion it is not the case that caused the button to be erratic and cause the phone to turn off/on and ask to "slide to power off". Since the phone is no longer "Under Warranty" they will not replace it, but instead said I could pay for a new one at a discounted price!

Noticed the problem last month but only experienced the inconvenience when I went for a holiday last week. The power button is not working.  And I can't also take photo using the power button and home button at the same time. My wife has an iphone 4s and her phone's power and home buttons are still working ok.

I agree. This is something that Apple knows already. As a responsible company, they should go for a recall for this kind of product issues. I'm one of the beneficiary of their iMac 2009 recall done last year. I'd expect they will do the same for this iPhone 5 issue. It might be too expensive to replace the phone. Am ok if they offer free fixing for this issue.

The first sentence of this petition, "This petition is regarding the defect on iPhone 5 power button which wears out in about 13-14 months of usage just after you go out of warranty." is entirely accurate. Mine started acting up around the 1 year mark and has progressively gotten worse to the point where it works about 1/8th of the time.

I've looked at thousands of this exact complaint online. The last time I experienced a failure of this magnitude (2008 MacBook Pro with bad NVIDIA chip), Apple agreed to replace hardware outside of the regular (and even AppleCare) warranty period. Rightfully so however, and this shouldn't be an exception; this isn't a few dozen, a couple hundred, but thousands of the same complaint. It's time to fess up and admit your hardware had a fault.

At exactly 12months the power button started to work intermitently. With in another 6 weeks it was next to never working and now it is not working at all. I do believe that it IS A SAFETY ISSUE, as many airline carriers still require you turn off your electronic devices during take off and landing. I was sassed by an airline attendant because I could not get my phone to turn off, the best I could do was airplane mode.

Apple must do something. This is not a fluke, but a systemic problem.

Purchased my iPhone 5 in December 2012.  Power button started getting flaky around October 2013, requiring more and more force to activate.  By December 2013, I could no longer activate it with my fingers alone, and had to mash it very hard with a tool, such as the plastic head of a writing pen cap.  As a workaround, I enabled Assistive Touch, and now use that exclusively to lock the display.

I too thought it was an iOS 7 problem but the timeline fits 13 months after getting the phone.  Was told I would have to sign for EUR249 of cost but I may not be billed for the full amount. I have already lost trust in Apple products as they are no longer worth paying the extra for as the quality is no longer there, shame.

If 400 of us signed this petition so far, if you assume a 10% signing rate, that means over 4,000 iPhones have failed and thousands more will fail in coming months.

Like everyone else, the power button stopped working on my iphone 5 after 13 months after i bought the phone (and after i installed ios 7).  The genius bar just says it is $260 to fix (becuase i don't have apple care), or use the accessibility  workaround.  I have liked all the models of iphones i have purchaced so far, but apple not taking responsibility for an obvious chronic problem is rediculous.  I shouldn't have to be forced to buy apple care because the product becoms defective after 1 year.  I'm not sure if this is a hardware problem, or a software problem, but apple should do the right thing, and replace the devective phones, so they can figure out what the problem is, and prevent the problem from happening in the future.

 iPhone 5 purchased 1 week after release.


Phone has been protected by an Ottor Box Defender since new, never exposed to elements and is in new condition.


Power Switch a week ago began to fail, unable to turn phone on or off, home button must be used.

Gary*** Dallas, Texas 2014-01-06 15:41:37
Sometimes takes several presses to check the phone. Pressing on the, 'inside' of the button seems to be ok. Pressing closer to the, 'outside' is hit and miss.

my iphone5 also have this problem.

Pawa*** USA 2014-01-05 22:49:52

What if the phone is just out of warranty? It seems like other people have had the same issue with their phones after the iOS 7 update. Will the Apple Store repair or replace the phone or is it a lost cause to go there?

Got the iPhone 5 when it was released, power button issues after 8 months. Apple replaced it under warranty. 7 months later I'm having the same problem and the phone is out of warranty. I just want my power button fixed and not have to pay $305(after taxes in Ontario) for a replacement phone.

Seems that the iphone you buy from the US is dodgy.. like mine

Then after buying a 5s Australian seem that we have less issues and higher quality standards

Australian consumer law protects the customers.

 It has happened to me twice. I bought the iPhone 5 on release day, and within a month the sleep button stopped working. I dealt with it for a month before I could make it to an apple store, and they told me there was nothing they could do. I later broke the phone and had to purchase a replacement. That button on the replacement also stopped working after about a month. I have since moved onto the Samsung GS4 as I am sick of dealing with Apple and will never purchase an Apple product again.

 I love my iPhone, I use it every day. However, my lock/power button has completely stopped working. It is supremely inconvenient because I take a lot of screenshots, and now I can't. Also I like to watch YouTube and browse the internet with my phone and I've tried the Assistive Touch feature so I can still lock my phone but the Assistive Touch button gets on the way on the screen. I hope that Apple address this significant issue. I want to get back to enjoying my iPhone.

My iPhone 5 power button became very unresponsive shortly after the warranty expired The home button was intermittent for a while too, but seems OK at the moment (maybe dust in it?). Also had minor camera issues (pink blobs).

Did a DIY power button fix with parts+tools from iFixIt, it was a success (but it's not a particularly easy fix, and could easily result in further damage)

Rather disappointing. My previous iPhone 4 had no issues in the ~2 years I owned it. With most phone contracts at 24months these days, I expect the phone to last at least that long, it's been reasonably well looked after.

 I didn't even know this was a real thing, amazing that its such a widespread issue judging from the number of signatures already. I've had my iphone 5 going on 12 months and about a month ago the button just stopped working and i've had to press it multiple times and harder than designed to get it to work correctly. sometimes it inadvertedly takes screen shots or reboots when all i want to do is turn off the screen before my battery drains in an hour.

I even convinced myself that it's always been like that but i never noticed (it hasn't). Everything from that to thinking it was an option in the settings or a flawed feature of ios7.

 After close to 13 months of usage my once wobbly power button is now barely usable. This is despite enabling assistive touch so as to reduce the workload on the said button. In addition to that, I have only been using the button to switch on and off the device every once on a while. It's a shame a peritoneal such as this is even necessary to get the attention of Apple whose ethos and steadfast principles clearly demand the highest level of perfection from every product. As a lifelong apple fanboy this (major) issue has both disappointed and angered me.

My girlfriend's i5 power button is also starting to die after about 10 months. Maybe it has lasted for so long because she mainly uses her work phone.

Happened to my original iPhone 5 purchased within the first week of release. Replaced a few months later in January, which had the same issue again a few months later after my original warranty was expired. I had to pay money for a replacement. I eventually sold my replacement. I'm a strong Apple supporter, but this was ridiculous, and not the first time I've had design problems.

 My wife and I both have the iPhone 5 and our power buttons have gone out. Mine has stopped working completely and hers is on the way out. We set the auto lock to 1 minute so we can minimize how much the battery drains since we can no longer turn off our phones.

Aksh*** Toronto 2014-01-04 23:29:51

This has occurred previously with older iPhone models I have had (more recently). Therefore the fact that this is a recurring problem which isn't being resolved has caused massive disappointment to the point where I don't want to use your products anymore. Not solely for this reason, but because this highlights the lack of attention to detail which made apple so steadfast and reliable in the face of other flimsy and careless designs.

Northbrook IL apple store would not swap this out since it was beyond warranty. 

This button problem is obviously WIDESPREAD and I feel Apple's quality has declined over recent years and this should have been recalled IMO.

My power button failled, but since in Portugal the warranty period is 2 years, so i took it for a replacement. they declined since my phone had some marks of falling down.
Roge*** UK 2014-01-03 02:20:00

 I had the problem and got told no fix, out of warranty but lucky for me in the UK we have the consumer law which in affect covers us for 2 yearsso had phone replaced.

Stua*** USA 2014-01-02 17:07:22

 My power button failed after 13 months just after my 1 year AppleCare membership expired. I was told also that replacement cost would be 269.99 at my local apple store. To top things off, somehow my carrier insurance had never been activated on my line either but was on the 2nd line, leaving me without a leg to stand on. After researching I discovered that the small 25.00 flex cable inside the phone was likely at fault and another 6.00 for a toolkit to open the phone. Now one is left with the dilemma, fix it yourself for 31.00 possibly missing a step and ending up with a 650.00 paperweight or paying apple 269.99 which is actually more than I paid to get the phone on contract anyway. I chose Apple after waiting it out for years to see what they would come up with and after years of being hesitant I bought 2 iPhone 5's believing all along that short of a drop and shatter or water damage incident on my part the phone would be reliable. I suppose I was mistaken. All I've seen from

Kerr*** USA 2014-01-02 16:34:41

 Power button stopped 15 months after purchase. I would be willing to pay a small fee for repair, but $269 is asinine. It's very annoying. 

Matt*** California 2014-01-02 15:36:15

 Stopped working after 13 months right after I upgraded to ios7. No physical event triggered it.  Apple store wants $269 to give me a refurbished phone

 There's a wide spread issue of the power button no longer working, this happened to me 1 month after my warranty expired. After meeting with an Apple genius I was told my only course of action was to replace the button for $260.

This is a widespread isssue that is affecting many users and the replacement cost is roughly 30% of a brand new deivce without contract and $60 more than a new deice with contract. It's crazy to think it'll cost me more oney to fix my iPhone than it costs for a new one.

If this was a random breakage I would understand but this is affecting many people.

Terr*** USA 2014-01-02 12:19:28

Scot*** USA 2014-01-02 11:49:44
iPhone 5 power button began having issues after 10 months, but didn't get really bad until 13 months (just out of warranty). Took it into the Apple Store and the Genius Bar associate saw an issue was reported on the phone in September, just before the warranty expired, and we were still within 90 days of that. Then, after pulling out the new phone and beginning to update it to iOS7 for me, he went and talked to his manager. His manager pointed out that the previous incident was in September of the previous year, and so it wasn't within 90 days. It's my wife's phone and I know she took it into some store in September of this year (might have been AT&T, I wasn't sure). The genius bar employee returned to tell me that instead of it being free, I'd have to pay $269 to get the issue fixed. I was pretty upset after getting my hopes up and then dashed by Apple's apparent policy of not caring about this issue. I'm seriously considering going all Android and returning my new iPad Air as well(s
Mark*** Seattle 2014-01-02 08:01:07

 Since iOS 7 - horrible problems with power button. Full reset at apple store in Seattle did not resolve the issue. Such con artists in Cuppertino. 

Russ*** USA 2014-01-01 00:03:29

 iOS 7.0 upgrade was the delineated event. No problem with power button prior. Left side only works.  I am a senior member IEEE up for Fellow ; degreed electrical engineer 30 yrs in electrical design and electromagnetic modeling and simulation.  I feel that there is at least a bad batch of contacts on a short production run of 5s.  We should all aggregate our IMEI & ICCID Numbers and ask Apple to see if all these bad switch phones are from a common production run then track it to the switch vendor.

This is not good. I do have the same issue after 14 months now. My iPhone 5 power button does not work at all and I use the assitive touch to turn it off. Very annoying. It started when I had iOS6 before the upgrade but gradually it got worse and now it does not work at all. I was told I have to pay $269 to get this fixed at Apple Store but I won't do that. I am very upset at Apple to not standing behind this.

Shwe*** San Francisco 2013-12-22 21:37:17

 I bit the bullet & spent $269 to get a replacement out of warranty due to the power button issues that surface 14 months after purchase. Previous iPhone 5 backup will now not restore on the new device through iTunes - I now not just have a hardware defect, I was made to pay for. I am now dealing with a software nightmare as well. Running back to Genius Bar for consultation. My replacement iPhone is now bricked. 

Never never buying an iPhone again. iPhone 5 was a terrible experience.

My power button started working poorly about 4-5 days ago. I called the Apple support line only to be told that since I am 66 days out of warranty, there was nothing they could do. I was told that I could get a replacement phone for $269. I had my iPhone 4 for over two years and never had an issue with that phone. It is absurd that a phone costing ~$700 breaks after only 14 months of use. Unfortunately, my daughters just got their iPhone 5 last July. Had I known about this problem at that time, I would NEVER have bought them this phone. Since they are stuck with their phones now, I will make sure their power button breaks before their 12 month warranty is over. Apple's response to this matter has made me seriously look at the Samsung Galaxy. The S5 should be out by the time I'm eligible for an upgrade...

mike*** indiana 2013-12-18 19:58:26

my power button is in the process of going out. i have to press the left edge of it several times to get it to work. this started happening about 13 months after i bought it back in sept '12.

i still have a nexus one that i used for 3.5 years and it looks and operates like new. my iphone5 still looks like new. i don't drop my devices and take exceptionally good care of them along with gentle operation.

this is poor hardware design or cheap parts, one of the two. it can only be one of the two. this is not a good first experience with an iphone, however, i would like for that to not be true. there are many reasons why i love this iphone, but if this is what i can expect from them, i'll go back to android or windows for my next phone (as soon as my power button completely fails... )

My Power button started to act finicky in about 13 months after purchase. Went to Apple Store and the genius bar told me I need to pay $269 to get it replaced. I cannot believe that Apple is asking customers to pay this much where this is not a user's fault. I have kept my phone very well and never dropped it. I do not use my phone excessively either. I believe $700 phone should not wear our this quick. It should at least have an average life of two years.. I would not buy any Apple products anymore if Apple does not take action. If majority of users are having this problem, then that is a defect. Hope Apple hears this..
