    My iPhone 5S automatically went from 100% to 99% when removed from the charger. It had been at 100% for a good while before even being removed.

    Not a major deal, I know. But just curious as to why that happened, as it usually takes a while to even get the battery to drop its first percent?

    down*, not done.

    Mine does that, too. Was told by a Genius at the Apple Store that it's corrupted iOS software. I'll wait until 7.1 to see if it solves the problem; if not, clean install!

    Turn the power off and turn back on. Will be back at 100%.

    That's just silly worrying about 1%. That "genius" is a real dope. Corrupt software takes away 1%?? Puleeeze....

    The fact it that the charging circuit does not hold the charge at exactly 100%. It can easily be off by 1 or 2 percent.

    Maybe turn off the percentage indicator. Less stress is a good thing. :)

    Somewhere on Salisbury plain, and Apple, UK
    This, all my iPhones have dropped a percentage or two after taking off charge, and after a restart, they're back at 100%

    I've reset them, setup as new, and still the same, but a restart solves it for the time being.

    And as Givmeabrek says, the charging circuit can also be off a percentage or two.

    Just use it, it won't do any harm :)

    This right here. I turned my percentage indicator off and just plug my phone in whenever I feel like it, and unplug it when I need to.
