Apple plans to include a diagnostic tool in the next iOS update that will help its engineers figure out how to better address the problem. follow link

We live near Ashland, Oregon, and I just found out that the closest store I can go to is 4 ½ hours away in Eugene. Apple requires the store to run and in-person diagnostic on the phone before they will even issue a battery for it now. That's two long trips to Eugene. While my phone has cut out occasionally, and it's annoying, it doesn't happen often. Does anyone know if this is a progressive problem that's likely to get worse?
