    My iPhone 4s battery dies at 14%

    I'm using iPhone 4s and I've been facing this issue since iOS 7.x
    It sometimes shows a percentage of 1% and keeps working for a while in addition to many other weird behaviors, it has just died at 22%.
    I hard reseted, fully restored, completed 10s of full cycle charges but nothing has worked for me so far.
    Has anyone found a solution yet?

    I think i know what your problem is.....OLD PHONE! Buy a new one. I bet that battery has like 500+ cycles on it and all the cells are bad.

    Well, may be, but probably not. I had an iPhone 4 and it almost never left my hands for 2 years. And this 4s is just 1 and a half year old. How can I check my charge cycles any way? is there an app for such a thing?

    with iOS 8.1 there battery demand is much greater than ever before and it could be that your phone is simply not handling that demand because... well, it is old. :( also, some people are reporting (including myself) that iOS 8.1 has a nasty batter draining bug so it could be that if you're one of the affected ones.

    Not an old phone. A bad battery. Yes, the solution is a Genius appointment to see if the battery is bad and replace it if it is.
