    This is so frustrating. Since 9.0.2 and now on 9.1, the battery percentage indicator and meter freezes at whatever status it was at when put on the charger. So if the battery was at 52% when I went to bed, it still shows as 52% when I wake up. the only way to get it to display acurately is to a shutdown and restart.

    I have even done a clean install yesterday on the phone and it's still doing it.

    I have a 6s Plus FWIW.

    I'm not seeing anyone else with this issue so it almost has to be something in the device that is off. But that seems highly unlikely since a shutdown and restart fixes it. But I'm at a loss since a fresh install of the OS didn't cure it either.

    I've had intermittent issues with the battery indicator ever since moving to ios 9 - not getting stuck but odd jumps in the percentage both when running down and when charging. Really strange and annoying.

    My phone just started doing this too. I just plugged it in for like 30 mins it was at 22% when I woke my phone up again it was still at 22 but moved up 1% so I restarted my phone and it went up to like 42%. Very annoying. I'm hoping it's a software bug that can be fixed

    Do you by chance have Date & Time Set Automatically enabled and have recently changed time zones? Or have you manually changed the time?

    It's a known bug that causes the battery meter issue to pop up by doing any of the above. Apple has acknowledged it and are working on a fix.

    I do have automatic time zone enabled and I have not switched time zones. It only gets stuck while charging though, I'm hoping they get it fixed soon.

    I would take it in for a battery evaluation, I had an iPhone 5 that was doing this before promptly dying. This was during the iOS 8.3 betas, I eventually just bought a 6 Plus thinking it was a motherboard error. Gave the old iPhone to a friend and she got it fixed, battery was the issue and now it works wonderfully on iOS 9.

    Yes, Apple has acknowledged the problem But they also said that if you haven't moved between time zones, or manually changed the time, to contact Apple immediately.
    My last iPhone 6s used to do the same thing. And I hadn't done neither of those things. So i called Apple.
    The remote diagnosis they did, showed the battery was fine. Told me to restore the phone. That too didn't help. So they just replaced the phone.
    Have had the new one for about 2 weeks and no battery percentage getting stuck or jumping around so far.
    Now if only had I gotten the TSMC version this time around. But no such luck. Another Samsung :(
