    hey guys i got a question for you my friend has a iphone 5s and when he updated to ios 12 he has been having random shutdowns around 50 to 60% of battery, and also sometimes once it hits 60% to goes directly to 14% and then dies. When he plugs the phone in it jumps back to what percent it died at. If someone could help I would really appreciate it alot. Please write back. Thanks.

    These symptoms point to a new battery for sure.

    I am a believer is OEM Apple batteries for their longevity and dependability.

    Because it’s near or at the end of its life.

    But the weird thing is that I put the battery in only a couple of months ago. A battery like that shouldn’t have these problems.

    Maybe get iFixIt to replace the battery?

    Would it be better to get another ifixit battery or get a genuine apple battery
