    I've rebooted my 5S twice in the past two days and each time, the battery percentage has jumped 3-4%. Can anyone else confirm this happening to them? Is it just me? Is it just a 5S thing? Is it just an iOS 7 thing? What's happening here?

    I've had it happen once on my 5 and 5s. Let the battery die until the phone turns off then charge fully. That should fix it, usually does for me.

    Sounds normal to me. Every iPhone I've owned has done this at one point or another. Just the quirks of batteries. They're not digital components, after all.

    That should take aproximately 20 turn off/on cycles to charge it from scratch!

    Ooh! Good point! That's way faster than using the charger!
