I'm debating and can't seem to settle on an answer. My battery is shot on my iPhone 5 (not part of the replacement program), and I'm contemplating just replacing it and making due with the phone for another year. I skipped upgrading last year, because I just figured it was fine. But with the new model coming out in September, it seems like a good time to upgrade. More of a want v.s. need thing, I suppose. The iPhone 5 works fine, for what I use it for. Bigger screen would be nice (not the plus though-too big) for reading, but there's nothing wrong with with what I have other than dismal battery life and erratic battery behavior/performance. My biggest concern is iOS updates will render it useless over the next year and that if I replace the battery it will just drain again, not sure how long replacements will last. Thoughts?
