    Hi guys,

    Has anyone else noticed that the fully charged symbol doesn't show anymore when the battery is fully charged?

    I left my iPhone5 charging overnight and when I got up it was still showing the lightning bolt next to the battery graphic.

    It also shows the same in iTunes if it's charging on my iMac, never see the charged symbol.

    Is everyone else getting this? I assume it's not trying to charge it once it's fully charged.

    Richard.

    Yes it seemed Apple changed it so it just shows the bolt symbol even if it's fully charged.

    When I have my 4S charging, in the morning I wake up, and on the lock screen it says 100% charged, but the bolt is still there.

    Yes, your phone is still fully charging.

    It's just the way it is in iOS 7. Apple doesn't want you to worry about the battery - once it says 100% it's charged. There may be a few minutes of trickle charge left, but it makes a negligible difference in actual battery life usage.

    If you're charging overnight - rest assured it is fully charged. No need to concerned with it.

    No problem. In the first beta for iOS 7, the lightning bolt would actually pulse while charging, and then become solid once fully charged. Even though it's not necessary, I did like that..just seemed cool. :cool:
