Is there anyway to turn this feature off.

I have an old XR that I only really use as a temp phone so I can sell on my current phone a little earlier before the announcement goes out for the new event.

Phone is kept in the home safe but obviously just keeps draining from 100 to 0 even thou it’s powered off

I thought that the discoverable-when-off feature required the U1 (ultra wideband) chip, and that the first iphone to have it was the iphone 11?

O dunno then I am storing it at 100% charge but it’s always drained after a month or 2 so presumed it was that

Turn off Bluetooth before turning your phone off.

I saw a thread the other day of someone wondering why they didn’t get the message under the power off swipe, but it reappeared when they turned Bluetooth on again

This feature is not available on the XR.

Before I go to sleep I charge my Iphone to 100% and put on airplane mode,when I wake up and my phone still on 100% charge.
That's great. Now leave it for two months and report back. ;)



Apple has some long-term storage guidelines (at the bottom of the page)...pertains to any lithium-ion batteries really. Should be charged to 50%, and charged back to 50% every six months. It does seem odd that the battery doesn't even last two months. What does the battery health look like? Perhaps the battery has just gone bad. It is almost five years old now if it's still the original battery.
