    Yesterday i've noticed that the battery usage not showing me the used percentage for every app, instead im having this message "Battery information will be available after using iPhone for few minutes", even so that im having on the last charge 30min usage\8h30min standby...

    Im using iOS 10.3.1 on IP5 and this is the first time im having this problem with that phone\iOS, what can i do to fix this??

    You can try rebooting the device and recharging to 100%. You can try updating to 10.3.3. Lastly, try playing a movie on your device and let it sit there for an hour, see if that can get it to trigger battery usage.

    I did a reboot, charged it to 100%, and played 35min Youtube video, and still i can't see the battery usage. The only thing left to try is to upgrade to iOS 10.3.3 - is the performance and battery good with IP5 ?

    PS, the external speaker stopped working as well few days ago out of nowhere, i thought coz i dropped the phone, but now after the reboot it started to work again.. strange.

    PS 2- Im guessing its coincidence, but the problem started or at least i've noticed it after i charged the phone with new solar powerbank...

    Sometimes dropping the phone can trigger software issues. I dropped an old iPhone last week and the camera stopped working, like the shutter wouldn't open and the flashlight wouldn't turn on. Rebooted the phone, everything is fine.

    As to performance on 10.3.3, I don't think its gonna be worse than 10.3.1 as its probably the final version of iOS 10, and the last your phone will get. From what I've read and heard, battery is worse than 10.3.1, slightly, but better than 10.3.3. But thats entirely YMMV. People may have corrupt installs.

    If you dont want to update your phone, you can try resetting all settings or erase all settings and content. You will lose whats only our phone with the latter, but you won't have to upgrade and it should fix the issue. Resetting all settings will keep data intact, but you'll need to reconfigure settings.

    You think if i'll restore from backup i did few days before the problem appeared, should fix it as well ? the last thing i want now is to restart the phone from scratch or to reconfigure all the settings..

    If you restore from a backup, and its a software issue, you will restore that software issue.

    Its possible, but you could be putting yourself in the same exact position a week from now. Something is corrupt, and you will be restoring that corruption and the issue may just return later. Resetting all settings on the other hand may solve the issue.

    I was checking once more before restoring from backup - looks like the restart\reboot fixed the battery usage problem i had in the end.
    Hopefully this does not reappear in the future..
