    I have never seen my iphone on 60%,30% or 27% , it never shows that percentages for example when its on 61% after a few minutes it instantly drops to 59%, does anyone knows what's wrong with it or how to fix it?

    I get the same thing in iOS 8.1. Seems like it skips a percent or two once in a while on my iPhone 6. Looks like a bug as this didn't happen on iOS 8.0.

    I've noticed mine go down by 2% at a time as well - iPhone 5s on 8.0.2.

    Yeah I noticed this on 8.1 as well. Probably a small software bug.

    Actually this bug did exist in 8.0.

    Interesting. Maybe the update rate is slower than the battery percentage is dropping and it skips once in a while? Don't really think it matters anyway.

    Must be like the wifi bug where not all people are getting it. I've been staring at battery percentage bars for a while on my 1st iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus and it never happened before. Been paying attention to that since I've been posting to my battery life screenshot thread.

    This is my 2nd iPhone 6 and I noticed it immediately. So not sure if it's just this particular iPhone.

    Battery level readings have never been linear. So you'll see the jumping as you noted. Most important thing is total battery usage time. Don't fret over the instantaneous readings. It drives too many people crazy.
