    Anyone else having this problem? I am using a cable provided by Apple, along with the dock for the 5s and I plug my phone into the dock before bed. I wake up 8 hours later and my battery is at 98%. Wtf?

    I experimented by unplugging the dock and plugging the phone straight into the lightening cable and within 10 minutes it was at 100% fully charged.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Edit: I may have posted this in the wrong section. Can someone move it to the correct one please?

    I had this issue for the first time this morning. It was on the charger overnight and woke up to 98%. I am running 7.0.2 on my 5s, which I installed yesterday. Perhaps it's related to the update?

    Well yesterday before I updated I had a 99% charge after all night. I didn't worry too much, until this morning when I had 98%

    Same thing for me. I turned my phone off and back on again and it corrected this. Back to 100%. I have waited several hours today down to 90% and re-charged and it went back to 100%.

    At one point, if you left an iOS device on a charger for a period of time, it would charge up to 100%, drop back down a percent or two, and then charge back up to 100%. It would not maintain a steady 100%.

    The battery charging process on the iphone is a lot more complicated than most think. It will charge your phone to 100%, let it drain to 96%, charge it to 110%, let it drain to 98%. It keeps doing this while it's still plugged in to keep the battery healthy.
