Upgrade to iPhone 8📱:Pay only $8 a month

    My iPhone 6 hasn't missed a beat since I've had it.

    Worked fine on ios10 up until this morning.

    Battery showing 25%, but as soon as I unlock and try to use it, battery drops to 1% then the phone shuts down.

    Connected to external battery pack, phone shows 25% again, then as soon as I unplug the battery pack it drops back to 1% and shuts off again.

    I've powered down the phone and re started, and it seems to be ok off the charger pack now.

    Anyone else had similar issues?

    Welcome to iMore!

    My suggestion would be to do a hard reset. Hold the power & home button at the same time until you see the  logo. Then release the buttons and wait for it to finish. Hopefully this will solve the problem for you. This could also be signs of a battery that is dying. If the hard reset does not work for you, I suggest making a genius appointment or going to an Apple Reseller and have your phone looked at. The genius can tell you if it is time to replace the battery. Thanks!

    My iPhone 6s (less than a year old) all of a sudden has gone funny on battery.

    Apple are the only people who will be able to tell you if your battery is faulty or not but the steps they'll put you through will probably be similar to me

    1. Restore the phone and restore a backup and monitor the battery
    2. Restore the phone and set up as new with no backup restored and monitor the battery

    Good luck

    These are all great suggestions, I',m having some battery issues as well and will try these fixes. One quick question, what is reasonable battery life for moderate work day use?
