    Kind of freaked me out. I've got an iPhone 7 Plus running 11.4.

    I don't have battery saver on.

    It went from 94% to 93% to 92% then back to 93% and then to 92%. This all happened within 10 seconds. I wish I had been able to record this. It was a very weird glitch. Anyone else seen it?

    This hasn't happened prior to 11.4 that I have seen, but it might have and I just didn't witness it occurring.

    Did it continue to drop or did it stabilize?

    No need to obsess. This is why I recommend turning off the display of percentage.

    Not sure if I'd call it obsession, more of a slightly perturbing observation.

    It stabilized.

    To clarify, it's the battery percentage next to the battery on the status bar. Not the beta battery health.

    I'm sure it was just glitch but I was curious if anyone else had experienced it.

    The battery fluctuation has been happening to my 6s, battery health is at 99%. It drops in a matter of seconds or then also charges very rapidly.

    On iOS 8 there was a bug in which 59% and 29% wouldn't display (jumped from 60% to 58% and 30% to 28%) but that was solved in iOS 9 (I've always had it with a 5s that's still on iOS 8. When I got my current 6s on iOS 9 it stopped) and I haven't encountered it since.
