    Hello to you all, I had my 6s original battery replaced today at the Apple Store. New battery level is at 12%. Phone is off. I haven't charged it yet cause I want to know what's the best way of charging a brand new battery. Letting it drain before charging, setting the 6s as new, upgrading to iOS 10.2.5 (it's 10.2 now), reinstalling apps by hand, new accounts, etc. BTW, the wait has been 2 weeks. I'm in Montréal. What did you guys do when you had your battery replaced?
    Thanks for the cues

    I would just restore it from a backup and plug that sucker in

    Go ahead and charge to 100% and then use normally. No need to calibrate a new battery.

    Just charge as usual. Avoid heat, cold, puncture, or any other thing that is dangerous for lithium battery.

    You don't have to do anything special, just charge and use it as normal. Now that you have a fresh battery it should outlast the remaining useful lifespan of the phone anyway so I wouldn't worry about it.

    HI and thanks so much for your infos. Reason I posted is that I read this somewhere: "When Apple replaced the battery they didn't wipe it or anything it was still throttling as if the battery was bad. The way i managed to solve it was (...) fully charge to 100%. Reset all settings from on the phone once you get the setup screen leave it at that and do a DFU restore. So plug the phone into the computer open iTunes hold both the sleep and home button for 8 seconds then let go of the sleep and continue to hold the home button. iTunes will say iPhone has been detected and the phone screen should be black. Follow the prompts to restore the phone. iTunes will download the latest IOS and do a full clean install that will fix the throttle issues. Once it is restore set up as new iPhone install the app and double check you should get high scores once again. Then you can reset all settings again and then restore from backup. It is a lot of work but it feels like a new phone again now 100% no issues and the battery life is back to normal too". Sounds complicated to me but seems to have resolved the guy's problem which is a good thing.

    I now wonder, did he compared the previous score and the score after replacing the battery and doing everything listed above? Did he notice a higher score?

    DFU is a mode which an iOS device upgrades or restores its firmware in case normal update or restore failing. Many people claim DFU restores their devices and fixes some tedious iOS issues.

    So it wouldn't do any harm to put my 6s through that process. With this new battery, I feel like I should start from scrap with it. In any case there are tedious issues. A good or bad idea?

    Two weeks you say to get it back? Why so long?

    I have an iPhone 6 on 10.3.3, will the Apple store replace the battery without wanting to update the ios?

    I'm in So Cal and thought it would be done in under an hour?

    mhdena, It took 2 weeks to have an appointment, then 2 hours to have the battery replaced.

    It will be great when Apple introduces the new iOS that allows US to control the battery programing.
