    Hi Everyone,

    Have had an iPhone 8 since it came out with no issues. I was out just for a run with apple music my only app open and blue tooth headphones connected and had about 70% or so. Looked back down it was down to 15 and dropping literally every 15-30 seconds. It hit 8% and I turned it off. Turned it back on it was in the 30's but again after a few minutes started dropping rapidly. I always keep the screen brightness on the low side

    I'm home now and did a hard reset and its at 44 but after using it for a minute or two or so it went down to 42. Any idea what could be causing this? The clear arrow in the upper corner i notice is always there. Receiving data?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    thanks

    The arrow is location data. Is it a solid arrow or hollow?

    You might want to go to settings/privacy/location services and see if anything is set to “always”. Hollow arrow means some app used location data recently.. You can also go to settings/privacy/location services/system services and see all the location settings for the phone and shut off ones that are unnecessary. I can’t guarantee that’s your problem but, it’s a place to start

    It also sounds like your battery might not be in that good of a shape.

    Is it possible that the phone may be with a flaw in it?
