    All smartphone batteries have a chance to bloat especially if exposed to extreme temperatures

    As for your other phones, I'd suggest taking them to Apple. They'd probably be willing to help

    if it bloats you take it back to apple. they usually exchange phones with bloating batteries even after the warranty expires under the apple quality program. and the especially should if we're talking about a 1000$+ device

    There is a danger only if removing the battery.

    It's encased in a protective sleeve. Don't mess with it and it's fine. The problem is when attempting to remove it for replacement. If the protective sleeve is punctured there can be a risk of battery explosion.

    For this reason, Apple ships devices with swelling batteries to a special facility with the tools to handle this safely.

    So you think its my battery bloating? Cause its in the middle of the phone and the screen it self is Not Seperated from the main body just the upper glass is A tiny little bit upper
    If i press hard on the middle and release its gonna cause a Low-vol. Crackling sound

    And the back Doesnt have any problems

    I don't know.

    I'm just answering your question about if a swelling battery is dangerous or not.

    The display doesnt have any problems Just the top glass has maybe under 0.5 milimetres bloating

    Should i be concerned

    Here are my two options:
    Throwing the 5S in the trash can

    Keeping using it

    And honestly i can Not call it bloating Guys its not like the display is curved or anything like that

    So what happens when these batters explode is it swells to the point the casing is compromised. This normally happens with the battery expands and is pierced by something inside the case or on the logic board. So it's not a matter of if but when the battery will become compromised. I would recommend taking it to someone and having it serviced.

    I Personally don’t think you understand the ramifications of what a defective/swollen battery can do when under pressure. It’s not something that you want to tamper with or use knowingly what could happen. If you decide to dispose of the iPhone 5s, Apple has a recycling program you can donate your iPhone to and they will dispose of it properly for you.

    hey friend,i know what it can do it can explode but that is,if the battery in there is really swollen which doesnt seem to be true for me ive seen a pic of an iphone 7's display being fully sperated from the main body but mine? just the top glas has a tiney little bit of a bump it seems to have happened due to heat Or maybe while taking the glass off the display it sperated a bit doesnt look like a swollen battery to me

    or maybe i just dont know and its becayse of the battery

    and surely i know what batteries can do i know what happens If a li-ion battery starts to leak or explodes,thats why i keep ,y powerbanks Away from my body and i use respected brands like anker,griffin,etc i neber use cheap chinese banks

    thanks for the answer guys!
    love ya'll

    I wouldn't throw it away. You can install a new battery for $20 or many shops offer this.
    Apple for $79 is not worth it for such an old phone.

    Before open and check if it really is the battery. Maybe just the frame of the display came lose.

    I dont put non-OEMbatteries inside my phones Cause You dont know if its Gonna work or Not but according to my searches It seems like it cant be the battery The battery bloating Is super obvious while my problem
    Is a Super common screen clicking,further more I even have an iphone 5S and It has no bloating no screen clicking no performance issues
    Just the battery guage Isnt that accurate it turns off at 15percent of charge But its an IOS bug and since the IOS doesnt Get updated for this old phone Im stuck with it

    So what i get from this,is that OEM batteries are really high quality Batteries,I wouldnt recomment anyone to
    go anyother route than Official apple stores
    Mbut again thanks for your reply man that means a Lot to me,cause There are no apple stores here you know...
    God bless❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️✝️

    Ifixit also sells good batteries. Or look for reviews on amazon.

    Anyway, for a half broken 5s which is worth maybe $50 you can try.

    BTW a 5s still is supported for software updates

    The battery will continue to bloat as the battery ages.

    The fact that your phone turns off at 15% tells you your battery needs replacement. It's not an iOS bug.

    If your display is bloating on the left side, it's 99% due to the battery. That's where the battery is.

    Look My 6S plus battery sometimes Does this too cause Even if the battery is degraded the Guage should Automatically Show then right percentage so that the phone turns Off at 0 percent
    And Nope its not on the Left side the screen clicking is at the center and there is no noticable
    curve Or seperation on my 5S nor on the 6S+ they just got old batteries i know...

    Anyways If somebody is willing to pay the full 80dollars will it change the Waiting tome for a battery replacement?
    --- Post Merged, Mar 16, 2018 ---
    If a Phone works Then it works,Just cause technology Is Advancing at a crazy fast pace
    doesnt mean 5S is a bad phone and Just cause People Buy it no more
    doesnt mean It shouldnt have any value,its Still a respectable
    phone which still receives software updates I have the Iphone X and 6S+ and well I still think 5S can keep up with todays world

    I mean the phone is worth more than 50dollars for me Although if somebody wanted to buy it, it would cost them around 50-100$

    I might consider The ifixit route but are their batteries safe ,honestly ive never opened Up an i phone I know how to do it but have never done it personally,im not scared of doing This but i dont know batteries are scary stuff And I dont know if i fixit bayteries Are Good as Apples original batteries i dont wanna end up dead because Of a non-OWC Iphone battery!
    God bless

    It means your 6s battery is also degraded. When the battery is degraded, the gauge will be inaccurate. iOS cannot accurately predict battery capacity with a degraded battery. You don't see this problem with a brand new iPhone 6s.

    The battery occupies a large area of the iPhone. All you need to do is unscrew the bottom two screws and take a peek.
