A Swollen iPhone 5 Battery

A colleague of mine asked me if I could “unbend” his iPhone 5. I found out that the battery was swelling and pushed the screen out. I then proceeded toat take the screws out and removed the battery.

As of August 29, 2016, Apple is offering $75 in gift card for iPhone 5 trade-in. Apple charges $79 for out of warranty battery replacement. So, It’s not worth having Apple to replace the battery, unless I can give this iPhone 5 to someone.
