    I purchased my iPhone in October and till now it has had various problems:

    1. Touch ID not working sometimes
    2. Battery drainage (REALLY FAST)
    3. Loose power, home and volume buttons (out of the box)
    4. Incorrect compass readings
    5. Safari/other applications crashes

    Could I get a replacement iPhone? It is still under warranty but I am worried in case it gets refused for replacement, should I take it to the apple store? And what exactly does a Apple warranty cover?

    You can take it in and they may swap it out, but honestly 4 of those 5 issues may be fixed with a software update.

    They all sound like anal-retentive issues and probably normal except for software fixes.

    If you have to ask what the warranty covers, it's not a real defect. Best you can do is take it in and see what they say.
