    I've noticed my iPhone 6 does not seem to be reporting the battery life correctly. Quite often I will find that the battery life has suddenly dropped by 30-50%. But when I plug it in to charge nearly instantly the meter will jump up to what I guess is the actual battery status of 70-80ish%. Just this morning I sat down at my desk at work to find my iPhone saying it had 44% battery remaining after 3 hours of standby time and 1.5 hours screen on time. I plugged it in and it immediately jumped to 77%. This seems to be happening with more frequency lately.

    Has anyone noticed this behavior? Rebooting the iPhone does not seem to change anything.

    Yea I've started to notice that. Mine would die completely with 20-40 battery left if I tried to play music or a video. Would have to keep pressing the power button for it to come back on. But did a fresh install of the iOS a few days ago, and have not had the same problems so far.

    I have been experiencing same issues. Not constantly but intermittently, especially while charging. Sometimes my phone can be plugged in for hours read only say 20% then go to A random number. Also I can show over 50% and sometimes die showing no battery

    The battery in my iPhone 5 did that way. It's early signs of wearing out. You can try calibrating the % indicator in the status bar by running the battery down as low as possible, then charge it up past 100%. My guess is you'll need a new battery in the coming months.

    This has started happening to my 6 as well. Started a couple months ago and is becoming increasingly common. It is definitely annoying! We're at the point now where I wouldn't want to buy a 6S with the 7 not too far away but dealing with this until the fall will be really annoying!
