    Have the 7+ and I am having a hard time charging the battery. Very slow to charge using the same chargers that I did for 6+. Battery will actually discharge even while plugged in in truck. Home charger works but very slow. 1-2% per hour. until it gets to roughly 50% Thoughts?

    I would make sure you are using a 2.1 or 2.4 amp charger for maximum charging speed. I haven't noticed any difference between charging my 6s+ and 7+.

    Have you tried doing a hard reset? Close all Apps? What does the battery tab in settings say? I have only seen this while I have a very resource intensive app running.

    Just went and purchased a new 2.4 amp charger and still no luck. Looks like a call into apple maybe. Just tried a hard reset, hoping that will help!

    Look to see if a certain app is using a lot of your battery.

    Facebook was at 23%
    After the hard reset phone seems to be charging much faster

    As Thor_1 said, check to see what is using all your battery. you can click the little clock for more information about battery usage per app. You can then check if an app is stuck or working in the background for a long time.

    I know Android is not too relative to iOS, but FB was a life sucker on an S7 edge I had. It would consistently be at the top of the battery usage list.

    Also, be sure all apps and your iOS version are actually up to date.
