Some Apple iPhone 5s units have problems with battery life and will be replaced

Apple spokeswoman Teresa Brewer says that the Cupertino based manufacturer will replace those units with replacement models. While Apple wouldn't reveal the number of affected units, indications are that the number is in the thousands. Apple itself, says that the problem involves a "limited number" of iPhone 5s handsets.
According to the manufacturer, the battery on both the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c can stay alive through 250 hours of standby time, 10 hours of 3G talk, 10 hours of video playback and 40 hours of audio. Some iPhone users have complained about shorter battery life on older models since the update to iOS 7.

I feel you. My S3 only lasts three hours now (battery has gone through over 900 cycles) and can't stand it anymore.

Welcome to Apple's update cycle. They have determined your mom is due for a hardware upgrade whether you like it or not. Please go to the nearest Apple store, pay a premium for a futureproof phone guaranteed to be outdated and due for an upgrade in two years (or if they get serious, by the next iOS update).

Let's say it's 9999 iphone 5s' with bad batteries. I believe they sold 4 million handsets (which I believe is lower than reality based on sales reports) when released. If you do the math, that's .2% of all iPhone 5s' have the issue. Only absolute fools are being legitimate for lambasting Apple for this. Manufacturing flaws happen especially on the production scale that are smart phones.
