    Hi everyone,
    Okay so my battery of my iPhone 5 was at 20% and then in literally like a second later it dropped right down to 10% ! Has anyone experienced this before? And does it mean my battery may be becoming faulty or something? :o

    My wife has. Ended up needing a new battery. Do you have an apple store nearby? They can check it for you and see if it's needing replaced.

    The closest Apple store is about an hour away, if this continues I'll make sure to get it checked!

    Your battery cycle could be coming to the end and might need to have Apple test it and put in a new one even if the store is an hour away. So is the one I go to where I live but I go there all the time.

    I have a coworker that is having terrible luck with the battery life on his iPhone 5. His is about a year old and he is a heavy user. How old is yours?

    If it continues have your battery checked at an Apple store.

    Mine did that. In fact if it was cold it would shut down regardless of battery percentage. Something my 4 never did. I replaced the battery yesterday. We will see how it goes.

    I got some cell repair shop in my area to do it as the apple store is 2 hours away

    I had the same problem, which deteriorated over time. Had to get the battery replaced.
