    I thought my iPhone 5s battery was starting to show signs of wear after one year when I noticed some odd drains the past two weeks. To begin with, as a teacher, I've been off and therefore home for two weeks. My battery use had seemed normal until then. Now, I take it off the charger and I see about 11% drain per hour while sitting in my pocket. The other day, however, I went to a movie (Unbroken, which is amazing!), and two hours in my pocket I was still at 100%. Came home, and battery drain started again.

    I have rebooted, of course, and should you think it's weak signal, I have a Sprint Airrave, so I always have 5 dots. The only thing that I have changed in the past two weeks is that I added a wifi extender in my living room. I thought that would improve things, but not in my case.

    Anything I'm overlooking?

    When was the last time you let it run until it shut off and charge undisturbed until it was fully charged? If it's been a while, or never - try that.

    I think I've solved my problem. My router was dying all week (I didn't know this at the time, but it was behaving weirdly then it just stopped working). Today I put in the new router and my iPhone battery use is back to normal.
