Well it was bound to happen I guess. Having owned nearly every iphone since iphone 1, a phone has totally died on me. Amazingly it was a brand new iphone 7. I hadn't had any issues leading up this, except it did get hot from time to time with no apparent reason why. It started when I got home. I plugged it into an apple charger with apple cable and took a short nap. When I woke up, I noticed that the phone had gone from about 60% to about 80% in 45 minutes. That seemed to be not enough charge increase for the time n the charger. Moreover the phone was very hot. I went on the phone to see what was going on, and noticed that the wifi was not active. I went to the settings and strangely it couldn't pick up any wifi signals at all. Like it wouldn't even see any networks, of which there are several around me regularly. I went through the normal list of quick fixes, including a hard reset. No dice. I also was noticing that the battery was plummeting, down about 10% in minutes. I reset network settings and left it unplugged. I let it sit there and the battery went down and down, while it got hotter. I put it in the fridge for a few minutes, but it was still hot. Eventually it went down to 0 and shut off. When I plugged it in, nothing. 20, 30 minutes plugged in, nothing. No reset possible, just dead. This thing hasn't seen mist, let alone water, and its been cared for meticulously and in an apple leather case since day 1. Going to apple store tomorrow to see a genius, I hope they have replacement stock of the jet black. I do have applecare, so maybe that will help with the turnaround. Ill report back.
