    No, they say nothing is wrong with the battery according to the diagnostic. They say it should be a software issue and they suggest a reinstall (but as you mentioned, it didn't solve the problem).

    As I'm in Europe, they said I can exchange my iPhone for free during 14 days if I want, but I will not.

    I wish Apple had never included the battery percentage. Much heartache and worry could have been prevented.

    I believe our phones are jumping at the same percentages which is strange. I might contact apple and have them do a diagnostic just to be sure and to make them more aware of the issue.

    Yes, they are jumping at the same percentages although you have an iPhone 6 Plus and I have a regular iPhone 6. In my opinion, this is a proof that this is a software issue.

    I can tell you with certainty that it's 100% an operating system issue. I really wouldn't worry about it. I'm at 63% at the moment so I'm gonna watch and see if the same happens.

    You really have a hawk eye to notice that lol

    Lol went from 61% to 59% for me right now. Just an OS thing.

    That's good to know. I believe more people could be suffering this but haven't noticed probably.

    I have spoken to apple and they suggest doing a restore from iTunes as it puts a fresh version of iOS on the phone. I will do that later just to see if it solves the issue.

    If not I will just be patient and wait for a fix. Like I've said before I'm getting good battery life it's just more of an annoyance.

    iOS 8.1 should be available within a fortnight. That should hopefully fix the issue.

    After restoring through iTunes as new it still jumps percentage. iOS 8.1 will fix it hopefully.

    Same issue here for me. I have iPhone 5s for 5 months now, and I think the battery is still in good condition. Tried to reinstal iOS 8.0.2 through the iTunes but the problem still persist. It happens from 61% to 59%, 55>53, 31>29, 28>26 and 16>14. One hour ago I updated to iOS 8.1 and the problem is still here. They didn't solve it in this update, hope so they would soon as possible, because it's getting irritating.

    Now that's annoying it's still an issue. I've updated and only at 73% waiting until I get to 61%. I don't think enough people have noticed it or complained about it for apple to acknowledge it as an issue.

    I've noticed the same thing. It happens at random percentages, it will decrease by 2%. I know it's not really a big deal but it is kind of annoying. I restored from an iPhone 5 backup and a couple of days I restored it as new. Maybe it's just an iOS 8 bug, I just updated to 8.1 today so we'll see what happens.

    I update my software to iOS 8.1 and I can't even believe I'm saying this but the battery skipping has gotten EVEN WORSE. It's now skipping from 61% to 58%. This is VERY annoying. I've already had my phone replaced once and Apple keeps giving mixed advice regarding what should be done. From the time I bought the phone till now I've had to restore my phone 6x and re-set up everything. This issue is driving me insane.

    Honestly is it really that hard to take it off so you don't have to stare at it?

    I don't mean to belittle your problem,but if it bothers you that much and it's not being fixed, wouldn't the best solution be to ignore it altogether?

    I don't have a clue what percentage my battery is at and I still know when I need to charge my phone, maybe you should switch it off for a while until it's resolved.

    That's what I would have done too if the percentage is bothering me, I would just turn the % off and just use the phone normally. I don't understand why this is such an issue.

    I've just spoken to apple and mentioned that I have restored as new from iTunes and also updated to 8.1 but still the issue persists. They have suggested me to get it replaced. Like you say it does seem a little worse now with 8.1.

    People might suggest turning off the battery percentage but that's only hiding the issue that shouldn't be an issue with a premium product.

    Did you have your phone replaced based on this percentage issue? I don't want to have a wasted journey to Apple Store for this to persist.

    Also when you got your replacement did you set up as new and not from back up?

    Look forward to your reply.

    You're correct - hiding the percentage is just ignoring the problem. Replacing the phone won't solve it, it's inherently an iOS 8 software issue. My iPad Air is also doing that, but it wasn't doing that when on the iOS 7 software. In order to fix it, people need to raise notice it and raise awareness so that Apple can fix it. Turning off the percentage is just like saying "Hey! My iPhone screen doesn't show any colour at all no matter what I do, but you know what? I'll just put it on grayscale so it doesn't bug me! Problem solved!".

    How strange. Looks like my trip to Apple Store might be wasted. I don't understand why there aren't more people having this issue.

    Yep mine did that too last night when it was at 61%, went straight to 59% and I did a fresh install. But in all honesty it doesn't really bother me at all. So don't waste your time going to the apple store.

    I don't have a 6Plus. I have a 6. I think this may be an iOS 8 thing. I've noticed that mine will drain really slow between 100% till about 88%. Once it hits 88%, it very quickly drops down to around 83% with little to no usage. Then it drains normally again. It is almost always like that. I looked right after lunch and was at 88%. I haven't touched my phone, received any notifications/calls/etc or sent any out and now it's at 83% for no apparent reason.
