    Had a battery replaced and it didn't help my fast drain. Ran down to 0% last night due to we only had 1 charger that worked for our 5s since we have 2.

    Tried charging this am for 3 hours then hooked up to belkin and anker charger with no response. Home/power nothing, also tried recovery to iTunes and silent switch.

    How common are charging ports or boards to go out? Battery prior had 691 charges so shop replaced due to fast drain/slow charge and that one had 250 cycles with 1500 capacity.

    Will Apple diagnose ports/boards in store? We have a old 5 on iOS 8.2 that I can use any of the above chargers on without issue and both 5s ports have been cleaned and fiancées has the same symptoms of fast drain/slow charge.

    So is that the fee to diagnose or. Include repair? I wasn't going to use the old parts just stating the 5 outlasts these 2 5s phones.

    Talked to another repair place which diagnostic is $35 and if board $15 extra but may lose Touch ID.

    Those are the fee's I posted above for Apple to replace the whole phone.
    They dont charge anything to diagnose it.
