    Hi,

    I bought a used Ipod touch 6th Gen from one of my friend. I have noticed something really weird. When I restart the ipod the battery meter shows a red icon and stays like that for a about 2 mins. After 2 mins the actual level of the battery is shown. It also looses like 20% of charge even on standby. Also when I connect it to the charger, the battery meter jumps, suppose I connect the charger when the ipod is at 20%, It jumps to 40% instantly in a couple of minutes. I ran a diagnostic test with Apple Support and was told that the battery has passed the test. Do I have a defective battery or is this a software issue? Any Ideas?

    Thanks.

    I witnessed this same thing on my nieces iPod. It does appear to be a software issue in my opinion

    I believe you may be right. I bought another Ipod touch 32gb from Kijiji and it is the same. Is there any fix as these ipods are not under warranty. I took it to a local store and all they did was factory reset. Have done that alot of times until I got fed up with it. Are you sure its only the 32gb models? I was planning to try the 16GB but if this is a ipod touch issue than it would be a waste of money.
