    Hi,

    After unpluged and in stand by... consumption was 2% in 2 hours, hard-reset and % goes up to 100% and stay there for 5 hours with iphone 5 in stand by. Is it a bug?

    Regards

    No. It's an indicator only. Not a perfect gauge. 2% fluctuation is nothing to be concerned with.

    You are running iOS 7 so it could be all sorts of things. Glitch in the battery usage meter, someone running in background like push email, parallax not chilling like it should. Who knows. If you updated rather than a clean install it could be something carried over from iOS 6.

    You mean it would remain at 98%

    No, he's saying the percent indicator isn't always 100% accurate. What you described also happens in iOS 6 and before.

    Last night I was running my phone and the battery meter showed 45%. Then the phone shut down by itself.. When I tried to turn it back on, I got the icon that it was out of power. When I plugged the phone back in, the meter showed 45% power available, and it started charging.

    I"m concerned about the inaccuracy of the power meter that is on the phone. However, it does seem to have stopped doing random reboots.

    It's a beta. Not all the calibrations have been finished. You can be concerned once iOS 7 ships and your phone is still doing that.

    it was like this on ios5, 6, and beta 7. its perfectly normal across all my ios devices. unplug, use it to 98-99% and reboot = back to 100%. happens all the time to me. it has nothing to do with ios 7.

    Nobody said what you're describing wasn't normal. It's happened to me before as well. I was replying to the comment above where after a reboot the battery meter went from 15% to 28%. That's not normal behavior and I'm pretty sure it has everything to do with iOS7 being in beta. :rolleyes:

    yea thats not normal. i thought you were referring to the dropping 2% from 100%, then rebooting back to 100.

    Did you try a fresh install or Reset All Settings? Might help.

    Usually a 2% fluctuation is nothing to be concerned with. Unless your iPhone has some battery mileage, then don't loose much sleep over it.

    The biggest surprise to me in this beta is my iphone 5 is still on 100% in the morning after I hit the hay. I previously worked out that push was using up 3% over night. But now 0% over night, that's very impressive.
