I'm not sure what happened in the past 2 weeks, But everytime i attemp to turn my phone off. It turns off then waits a second before booting back up. i have no idea why it's doing this.

I've also noticed recently that my battery is draining at a rapid speed compared to normal. My phone on average would last 2 days before i hit under 10% (then i'd charge it that night) i'm on wi-fi all day at work & at home, my emails push isn't on, i don't have any apps opened in the background, and i can't make it more than 15 hours.

Any suggestions to fix, thanks

  • iTunes should open and ask to restore your iPhone.
  • Select restore and let it complete.
  • Set up as new on both iTunes and on your iPhone.
