    How is everyone taking pictures of the Battery Usage on the iphone? Are you using a seperate device or can it be done on the phone? I want to post mine.

    Did you mean how to take a screenshot?
    Home button + power button and it flashes/captures a screenshot.

    Don't hold it for a long period of time. It takes a picture very quickly. Try it.

    not if you release it straight after the screen flashes and you hear a camera sound. It will be obvious the screenshot has been taken.

    Hold the sleep/wake for 2 seconds and press the home button. You'll hear a shutter sound (if you're not on silent mode) and you'll find the screenshot in your photo album.

    I tried to do it but sadly my phone died before it worked. I was getting well over a day stadnby and over 7 hours use with LTE off location off and bluetooth off...Another question since it is dead I am charging it off now when it shows the battery indicator as well as the time/date/day is that off or do I need to shut it down completely if so how can you tell its done charging if off completely? I am new so please be kind.

    Keep it how it is. A tap of the home button will bring that up again I believe.

    It should power on once it reaches a certain battery %. Or you can try manually.

    Yeah. I forgot how it works when it's off and charging. You can try powering it back on at this point.

    I assure you, it doesn't matter whether you charge it on or off. Remember, lithium ion batteries don't like being left to charge while at 100% or left to die completely.

    So that being said don't let it drian completely? Or should I only drain it once or twice a month. If so should I charge it when its only half battery? Please explain.
