    Should I be concerned that my new iPhone 7 has come out of the box with no charge at all in the phone? Every other iPhone ive had in the past has had some charge so I'm worrying a bit.

    I treated myself to a bigger one than I normally would so I'm panicking a lot that I've bought a duff one. Should I be worried about the battery?

    Lithium ion batteries Naturally will deplete when they are not in use or charged regularly. It's nothing abnormal. After you fully charge your device, monitor the battery life to ensure there's no other abnormalities.

    Hello, I guess your phone should be fine once you charge it but the best thing would be to watch out for your phone, like how long does the charge last for a day's usage. You can figure it out. So don't worry!

    If you've bought it from a legit site / high street shop then you're all good. Don't panic, might just be a phone from old stock. Just charge it up & see how it goes.

    I wouldn't be concerned until after charging and leaving a few days tbh

    Otherwise take it back if an issue is found within the week.

    All the iPads and iPhones I've bought over the last 5 years have shipped with something around 60-70% battery charge.

    If the device is drained it must have be in storage for a long time, or be a bad battery.

    Try download the "Battery Life" app and see what the battery wear is. Might give an indication if somethings is up.

    No apps from the AppStore can provide correct battery information since the release of iOS 10.

    I can't say how correct it the information is. But the Battery Life iOS app is pretty consistent with iBackupBot (check for cycles) on my PC in regards to battery wear. I've noticed that the app only measure battery wear in terms of whole 100s. For instance, my 6S has a 1715mAh battery and the app shows wear for such as 1600 and 1500 and so forth. I tested my sister iPhone 6 the other day which she told me had terrible battery life. The app said 45% wear, so that sounded about right.

    After iOS10 we can't see the specific such as precise battery info, charge voltage and so on... But there still seems to be something that visible.
