    Hi, my 6s has suddenly taken a turn for the worse battery wise, I'm struggling to make it last a day even with moderate use and coconut battery shows my max capacity at around 80-82%

    Do you thing it would be worth getting a replacement battery from Apple......it's only had 220 cycles but is outside of its 1 year (by 3 days) so it would likely be chargeable

    I'm not too keen on doing it myself as I don't want to damage anything and affect its value

    Been there with my 6s+' battery last week: paid a visit to the Apple Authorized Service and they ran some diagnosis and decided to change my old 300 cycles / 82 - 84% battery under warranty. It was an in and out visit, the whole process took about an hour. The difference was that I was still under the 1yr Apple Limited Warranty... in your case they could charge you with $80 for the batt swap.

    Are you jailbroken? Something must be burning your battery power.
