    Is it normal for it to turn off at 6%? After it turned off I plugged in the charger and it showed the battery logo when it doesn't have enough battery but after a minute it went away and turned on. Is that normal aswell?

    Yes it can be normal depending on temperature etc. More common in cold weather. The battery percentage isn't 100% accurate at all times it's an approximation.

    But when I charged it. It showed thr battery logo for less than a minute and then turned on. Is that normal? As I remember it takes long for it to turn on after being low battery.

    Depending on the device, it usually only needs a few percentage points of charge to turn the device back on, which often doesn't take very long for at least the more recent devices.

    It it already had some charge it didn't take much to get it to the level that it needs to turn on.

    It just turned off then I plugged it in and didn't take a minute to turn off. So how did it have some charge? Thank you

    When the battery is that low you can not really depend on the battery gauge. It only approximates power remaining. Just plug it in and walk walk away for a while.

    When plugged in, it's not powered by the battery, it's ac adapter powered. It only defaults to battery when it doesn't get enough amps from the charger. Sometimes when using a crappy cable or occasionally when charging from a usb port.

    As about 6 people have already told you, yes it is normal. Please actually read people's responses.

    What model iPhone? 5 series iPhones had battery issues which triggered free battery replacement depending on specific ID.

    I will repeat it one more time. You can not trust your battery gauge when the charge is that low. It is not accurate and only an approximation at best. You are just making this complicated, similar to your other posts!

    Perhaps calibrate your battery to give your phone a more accurate reading of its battery's life?

    i faced the same problem with my 6+. it happened couple of days ago at home where the temperature was 60ish and it went off with the battery remaining 30%. then again it happened when i was out to play volleyball and it was in the car where temperature was around 25. it used to shut down and said low battery. after 5 minutes it would turn on. i booked the appointment at apple store and they gave me a new iPhone.

    So it happened 3 days in a row that it turned off at 5% and 4%. Is that still normal?

    It is only normal if it happened 4 days in a row and should be just shy of 4% if the room temp is normal.

    I am not sure sounds like it is a little warm. It is 68 Fahrenheit here and that is NOT normal for this time of year, but so far it has not done anything to my phone.

    I have never allowed my iPhone to reach 5%. I charge it while sleeping and it is ready for the next day when I awake. I do not worry about my battery and just use my phone and trust that Apple has put enough technology into it so I do not NEED to worry.

    You should just use your phone and not worry about every little thing. There is no such thing as "normal". Some iphiones will turn off at 1% some at 10%, it is not a big deal. Put it on the charger and walk away!
