    Depends how long it's been sat there. Batteries drain over time. Charge it up fully and enjoy

    It happens with some new iPhones. Apple's recommendation for long term storage is to keep the battery at 50%. As long as your phone holds a charge, it should be fine after a few charging cycles.

    It's normal for any battery equipped electronic device to do so when the charge is completely depleted.

    I unboxed 2 iPads and around 5 iPods plus 3 iPhones. this is the first time I see something like this so this is why I posted this.

    My iPhone 5 was completely flat out of the box and it took something like 15 minutes to even show the USB connection/empty battery icon in the centre of the screen. It did eventually start charging and performed ok though.
