Re: iOS 7 battery like iPhone 5

I have had my iPhone5 running ios7 shut down twice when the battery show around 30% battery. Tried to turn it back on and the screen show zero charge and plug in to a power supply, when I plug it in the phone restarts and then the Battery shows 30% battery again.
Is this a bug that the battery is low and the % is out of calibration?

Re: iOS 7 battery like iPhone 5

Iphone5 iOS 7 done ota. Here's two screenshots - first one from a few days ago... And one from this morning. I haven't plugged the phone in since unplugging it yesterday morning.
The first few days it seemed like the battery drained really fast.

Drain the batt until it shuts down, charge to 100% then do a hard reboot. Turn off the app background and location also lower down the brightness. That will do :)

Re: iOS 7 battery like iPhone 5

mine was awful until I did a full restore and then cycled the battery a few time. Now it is on par with what I got on iOS 6, which was about 8 hours usage every day. I charge nightly regardless of battery percentage.

When you say full restore, do you mean you restored to a brand new phone, and then restored an iOS 7 backup?

I recently did that and am on my second charge cycle, hoping battery will improve with a few cycles.

My terrible battery life maybe battery related. I got a appointment on Saturday. From a fresh restore and no backups used. I was getting auto power down at 20% 10% and 5%. Also one morning would not power on, even if I plugged the cord back in. Had to do a hard reset to power up.

New battery helped my standby time. Low usage today. See tomorrow on how it is medium usage. Be nice not to plug in 2 times a day.

With most things turned off ( don't need them anyway) I get through a 9 to 10 hour day. For example I was up for work at 5 am this morning and i use my phone pretty often throughout the day. By 12pm I was at 65 percent with heavy use. By the time 6 pm rolled around I was at 20 percent

Would say do a fresh restore no backup. Should get minimum 6 hour usage, if not probably have a bad battery. This is after replacement and only with reduce motion on. GPS , wifi background apps all on.

I am consistently getting less than 5 hours of usage time. This isn't the 6-8 hours advertised. I have also tweaked many of my options to save battery life. Could I have a bad battery?
