The iPhone 5s from Apple

We’re sorry, there was a problem processing your request. Please try again in a few minutes.

Note: If your iPhone 5 sleep/wake button does not show any signs of this issue and/or does not have a qualifying serial number, no action is required on your part at this time.

Replacement Process

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. See below for details. 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. Your iPhone will be examined prior to any service to verify that it is eligible for this program and is otherwise in working order. Before sending your iPhone to Apple for service, you will need to back up all your data and erase all your content and settings.

Note: If your iPhone 5 has any damage such as a cracked screen which impairs the replacement of the sleep/wake button, that issue will need to be resolved prior to the sleep/wake button replacement. In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the repair.

How to send your iPhone 5 to an Apple Repair Center

Your iPhone will be examined to verify eligibility, and then sent to the local Apple Repair Center. You will be notified when your iPhone is ready for pickup.

If you require a loaner during the time that your iPhone is being serviced, participating Apple Retail Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers will have iPhone 5 models (16GB only) available.

Note: To use the carry-in option, you must visit an Apple Retail Store or participating Apple Authorized Service Provider and not a wireless carrier partner.

Call and request a postage paid box to send your iPhone in to the local Apple Repair Center. Your iPhone will be examined by the Repair Center to verify eligibility. After it has been serviced, your iPhone will be returned to you by mail.

Preparing your iPhone 5 for service

Make sure your iPhone is ready for service by completing the following steps:

Erase data and settings in Settings > General > Reset > Erase all Content and Settings Remove any case or cover

Note: If you are running iOS 6 or iOS 7, your iPhone will need to be upgraded to iOS 8 after the sleep/wake button mechanism is replaced.

Additional Information

Apple may restrict or limit repair to the original country of purchase.

Your iPhone 5 must be in working order to qualify for this program.
