    Anyone else had this issue where the phone turns itself off like the battery is dead, at about 9 or 10%. Could it be the ios7 upgrade?

    My wife's died this all the time. Hers had done this ever since the ios 7.0.3 update.

    I'm still on 7.0.2, you saying it stopped after upgrading to 7.0.3?

    It's odd, my girlfriend mentioned that hers has been dying between 15-20% too.

    I had this too, got my 5 replaced under warranty once it started happening at 35%.

    They do a test at the Genius Bar to check battery quality.

    My iPhone 4S dies around 13%, really irritating if I'm low on battery and taking the dog out in the garden, usually I can wait a few minutes before trying to power it on, and then it turns on and reports something like 21% battery or something higher than when it died. Haven't noticed it on mine until the 7.0.3 update.

    My 4S seems to go out at about 7 to 10%. This has happened since iOS 7. I imagine that it's really at 0 to 1% and iOS is reporting the wrong percentage.

    The battery indicator is pretty messed up now. It seems to stop responding at times, then jump down, dies early, jumps up when you plug it in.

    Bottom line, may as well stop believing what it says, and start carrying a charger. :rolleyes:

    I can't stand when it dies during a workout and I have to finish it in silence.

    Major battery issues over the last 2-3 weeks.

    Battery drains super quick, and just cuts off at about the 30% mark. Need to plug it in to get it up and running again.

    Not to mention the 3xgb kios7 install files that have fulled up my 32gb with 2gb free.


    I have no interest in upgrading to ios7, from previous experiences, each upgrade slows down older models and i'm happy with my 4s for another year to two.
