Still does not really help me decide if i should go from ios10 to 11 due to the "slowing down" factor on older models like the 6. Not sure if its a blanket slowing down no matter the state of your battery, or almost no slowdown if you have low battery wear level like mine.

Thanks for the link - just checked and my iPad is 18% battery wear, and new phone is 1%. No worries for me then

ooof, 42% battery wear on my 5s. I have had it for 4 years or something so I shouldn't be surprised

I have kept it updated with every iOS update. I have noticed a couple of apps seem a bit sluggish - particularly WhatsApp on opening the app, but to be honest nothing I'm overly concerned about.

I got my iPhone 6 on launch day in the UK and until the recent updates itís been great and Iíve generally only charged it every other day and itís been fine - unless Iíve been out in the middle of nowhere shooting or fishing where thereís been no mobile or WiFi signal, when it invariably dies if I forget to put it in aircraft mode - but since the latest iOS updates, if itís a really cold day then it will go from roughly 20% battery to dead in a matter of minutes. If I then shove the phone in my pocket to warm it up, ten minutes later i can restart it and Iíve got a working phone again.

HTF Apple think this is a better customer experience is beyond me. Itís really pissing me off as, at this time of year, Iím outside most days whatever the temperature and, come to use the poxy phone to say when Iíll be back and it just dies. I hope Apple do the decent thing and reduce the price for a battery replacement in the U.K. but when I looked a couple of days ago there was nothing on their U.K. website.

Have you taken a look more than once? I ran that battery life app this morning at it said 17%. I just took another look and it said 23%. Iím not sure why the fluctuation within a few hours.

Still showing 14%

Back to 17% now... odd.

Just bought a second hand 6s and the battery life app is showing

Attachment 50195

Have I lucked out or does the phone need to go through a few cycles before getting an accurate measure??

Edit: on the 'wear level' screen it says 1%

Ridcully 10-02-2018 11:06 PM

A lot of 6s phones got free new battery...mine did so could explain it

TopKnot 21-02-2018 08:44 PM

If you are planning on going through Apple to get your battery replaced under the new shiney £25 discounted offer, be careful...

I arranged for my 6s to have the battery replaced, they did the diagnostic and I sent it off to the repair centre after paying the fee. Checked the status today and they have flagged that there is a fault with the speaker (that is literally all the info supplied) and the repair cost was now £260.

They refused to replace the battery unless I paid the full amount to fix something that I neither noticed nor wanted fixed, saying that they have to fix every fault they find if a phone goes in regardless of what the customer wanted doing to it. Obviously I told them to send it back and I’ll get the battery replaced by a third party shop.

did my daughters last week no probs at all , but as i dropped it off in the evening I had to pick it up next day :)

Hedgehog 04-03-2018 05:47 PM

Both my wife's and my iPhone received calls from our own numbers this morning. Neither of us answered the calls, and no messages were left.

Did a quick Google search, and it appears it could be another scam attempt. Advises not to answer the call as if you do it can lock into the number for future use or something like that.

Our phone numbers are consecutive, so a robocall devise may have been going through a sequence of numbers.

Anyone else had experience of this happening?

This used to be a hot thread which shows how much Apple has fallen behind with the last post being in 2018 but I do have a question. Why doesn’t the iPhone close a website when you ask it ? I end up every month doing a clean up to close all the 100s of open tabs. Why? You don’t do that on a Mac why on a phone?

Mine closes them if I ask it.....if you mean on safari, just press the little x on the top left corner

Isle of Wight 10-04-2019 07:31 PM

If you open a web page there isn’t an x so you press the home button. To go and do something else then the open tabs all pile up and you have to close each one or nuke them all

If I finish a page, I just click bottom right window page then close it.

Not that hard is it?

The battery on my iPhone 7 and my wifes are both knackered. Is the best best replacing them at an apple store? Looks like it's £45 each.

I took my 7 to a place in Crawley recently and they supplied and fitted a new one for £30. Been good as gold since.

Haha haha in all these years I have never thought of doing it that way. Rep sent :)

Tomo 12-04-2019 09:58 AM

Ha.

Sorry, I realised that may have come across a bit sarcy but that wasn't my intention. Enjoy!
