I have an old iPhone 4S that I gave to my daughter when I acquired a 5S. After using it for a couple of months, she reports that the battery life is awful. At one time, with a full charge, she took it out for a run using RunKeeper, and it lasted for about 13 minutes.

What options for battery replacement does she have? This phone was acquired from AT&T on release day, so it is out of warranty.

It's not very difficult to replace it. Here's the step-by-step guide. Replacing it yourself would be the cheapest route. Another option would be to have Apple of a local phone repair shop replace it.

I have an iPhone 4S and I don't remember if this started before or after the last Apple update. Whenever I finish charging the phone and pull the plug out, my iPhone does an auto "hard reboot" and then restarts. Sometimes while it's charging. I get a full charge but it's frustrating. Is there a bug or is it something else?
