    In the last couple of months I have had to recharge my iPhone twice a day in order to make it through the day and barely make it through 6 hours of actual usage and no more than 8 with standby while in Wi-Fi. It's been happening to me since before updating to iOS 10 and I haven't seen any regression since updating to it. I know that batteries get worn from use and after one year since getting my 6s I feel like it's too soon to see this dip in battery life. Coconut battery also seems to confirm my suspicion since it reports that with less than 400 garage cycles my battery capacity is at 76% from it's designed capacity and I have been monitoring it since I got my phone last year. When the iPhone was new I was easily hitting around 8 hours of actual use and 16 in standby and my usage pattern hasn't changed since then. Spoke with AppleCare and they couldn't find anything wrong from their diagnostics but I'm not convinced. Am I right unsuspecting I have a defective battery?

    I used that app and it showed my battery starting to go bad. Apple replaced my phone.

    When the genius tests using their own software he will see the battery is toast. the app is pretty damn accurate.

    Ok thank you. I will definitely have it exchanged before my warranty runs out.

    That's exactly what I did.

    My battery has dropped 10% with 31 minutes of use and 1.5 hours standby. I definitely think I have an issue... I've reset the network settings yesterday because I had been having no service issues. Since then it seems to be going fast. I'll go take it in later today probably and have it looked at.

    I noticed a lot of degradation in my 6S battery in the last month, and Coconut Battery on the Mac said it was down to about 84% capacity. If I didn't trade it in on a 7 I'd have taken it in to get the battery replaced.

    That is good to know that I'm not the only one with battery problems with my iPhone 6s. Makes me much more certain that I'm having ten because for a second I thought I was simply imagining things.
