    Here's Apples list of options.

    If it's a 5 or a 6s, it might be a recalled unit.

    Yeah those "tips" won't help if her phone is doing same as my daughters. It's beyond getting latest software, or avoid excess heat etc. The battery is already toast most likely. They need to run the diagnostic battery test to confirm though.

    Ah, the JOYS of not being able to replace the battery yourself (at a HELL of a lot lower price).

    I am not really an environmentalist, but I am beginning to think there should be laws forcing iPhones to be more user friend. Why can't we replace batteries, or put in a memory chip or card ourselves?
    I still have hundreds of CDs, I'd love to have a box of small chips say with different types of music on each that I could stick in a port to change the content on my phone.
    An iPhone could last for years instead of ending up in a land fill after 3 or 4 years.

    Problem with your scenario is it wouldn't last for years software wise. Apple usually ditches software upgrades well before the "end of life" of the iphone hardware.

    It would go against Apple's control freak philosophy to allow people to change batteries, etc.
