I’ve never had battery problems like I have with my iPhone 5
I’ve owned the iPhone, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and currently the iPhone 5. I’ve never performed a jailbreak on any of my iOS devices. Non of them have experienced water damage to the best of my knowledge. By far, the best iPhone and most annoying iPhone have been my iPhone 5.
My iPhone 5 battery, as reported by the phone, just went from 18% to off. It’s been charging for about 3 minutes and is reporting 34%. This is common.
I’ve tried various battery meter reset techniques, like draining, charging with minimal use, then two button reset when fully charged. Those tricks work for a week or so, but it’s not long after that things go off the rails.
I don’t know if the problem is hardware, firmware, or software related. But I really hope the issue gets resolved soon.
