Iphone 5 or 5s

How do I know what my phone is. I need a replacement battery but need to know what the phone is. I do not have the special tools required to get the back off the phone. TIA

The fact you're having battery issues means it's probably a 5. Does it have touch ID to unlock it or do you need to put in a PIN number? If you don't know - does the button on the front of the phone have a little gray square on it, or is it blank. Get someone who knows what they are doing to change the battery. It probably won't cost any more.

Is the 5c the 5? or is there a 5c, 5 and a 5s?

There's a 5c, 5 and 5s. The 5c is the plastic one.

found out it is a iPhone 5. Now just have to sort the battery issue.

I would recommend getting it replaced professionally unless you're good with that kind of thing. It's no easy task

+1 too easy to break ribbon cables prying the screen off.

Before you pay to have it replaced Apple did a recall on iPhone 5 due to a battery fault and if it is one of them it will be fixed for free

See you've already found, but here's the easy way for anyone. Model number on the back!
