    Hello, first post here.
    Picked up my 6+ yesterday morning.
    Let the battery die last night, when I plugged it in (to the USB on my PC) it kept starting, showing the Apple logo, vibrating twice, then restarting and then doing the same again.Must have done that about 15 times before I decided to plug it into the wall socket.
    Did the same once, then started as normal.
    Only charged it a couple of percent, let it die, then plugged it into my Mac Mini and again,started, couple of vibes,then off , next time it started normally.

    Someone else said they had the same thing with their iPad. I do have an iPad but only ever charge by wall plug anyway so maybe just never noticed?

    Im sure in the past when I had iPhones, 4S and below, you just plugged it in, 5 minutes later you get the connect sound and it would boot up normally

    I never plugged into my computer when it had no battery left- what happens when you plug it into computer when the battery has battery power left

    Its fine then.
    Obviously yesterday was the first time I had let the battery run down so don't know if that is how it is...it doesnt seem right, but then is it the phone? or the PCs USB?

    And as said above, same scenario on the Mac Mini, and it did it once but then started as normal BUT should it do that at all?
    If its a known thing then not a problem, its just that I have never had that happen with any other device ,iphone or otherwise.

    I'm pretty sure you need to plug your phone in to a wall socket after it goes to 0.

    Your PC is not going to put out enough power, period.

    Also, you shouldn't run the battery down to 0. It's not good for Lithium cells.

    That's a sign the device doesn't have the battery charged enough to run.... if/when you go to zero on battery, you need to plug in, and leave it alone until it is sufficiently charged to operate - and may even come to life on its own when it is... and this too may be a sign that your computer's USB power supply does not provide sufficient current to be able to charge and operate an iPhone6+

    To be honest I had 2% and thought I had enough. I was literally walking upstairs to go to bed, and it just died on me. I don't make a habit of it, but will admit I have never heard that it is bad for the battery to let it die.

    Most devices are going to shut down due to lack of available power well before a battery truly reaches zero charge...

    Here's a good explanation.

    Generally speaking, you should avoid completely discharging a Lithium cell; it reduces the life of the battery.

    iPhones shut down before it gets to that level. It may be at 1% or at .5%, but they won't go completely dead that way. Apple made then so that won't happen. I generally charge at around 20% to 25%.

    The phone requires power to light up the screen to show the dead battery condition. If there is no power left, the screen is incapable of displaying any information, including the dead battery message/icon.

    The thing is the backlight comes on
    I do recall my 5s once it shut off and tried to turn it on the display would show the plug into charger screen
