    I have an iPad Air 2 and had it for over a month ago now and for some reason the battery % keeps dropping by 2% and sometimes 4% every now and again while in use and on sleep/stand by and this is getting very annoying and frustrating!! D: D:

    I have had another iPad Air 2 before this one before the 1st got broke(dropped on the floor smashed the screen) and let me tell you my 1st iPad Air 2 has NEVER EVER had this problem(battery % dropping by 2 and 4% before!!!

    And the last time this happened it was last night and the battery was at 15% and all of the sudden it dropped to 11% and that's when I just unlocked/turned on the iPad and the interestingly the night before that I just charged the iPad from completely dead(0%) to fully charged(100%) and i thought it would fix this problem to calibrate the battery as I have been told by lots of people on here but it did NOT fixed the problem and it is slowly getting worse now! D:

    And I have been told by lots of people that if the battery dropping charge by 2%\4% and more that means the battery is already dying and should get it replaced, I really hope that is NOT that case!!

    So why is this keeps happening?? How to fix this battery dropping 2%/4% problem?? Has anybody had this problem as well or is it just me?? And is the battery already dying on me??

    You said nothing about your battery life? Is it okay?

    Check the battery tab in the settings app. Wait a few seconds and it will tell you which dumb app is eating all your battery up.

    I simply seldom look at the battery gauge. I do know when it get down to the very low it can give some crazy readings. The Air2 has a great battery and I always charged while sleeping and never had to worry about the battery.

    Just ignore it and enjoy your iPad.

    If there's an Apple Store near you, make an appointment at the Genius Bar. If not, call Apple care. It sounds like you may have a weak battery.

    If you checked the battery usage in settings, did not find an app that is running in the background and you still have an issue, Call apple care or take it into an Apple Store to have it looked at.

    Since your battery life is still fine just turn off the percentage indicator and don't worry about it. Problem solved.

    try recalibrating your iPad
    1.run the battery down to 0%
    2. recharge to full 100%
    3. run it down again to 0%
    4. recharge to full 100%

    i always do this when my battery is acting funny, especially after 9.3 my battery took a hit
    i recalibrate my battery on my iPhone 6s and its back to normal

    According to coconutBattery my iPhone 6+ went down to 93% battery capacity from original design after being 110% of design capacity for the last year+ --- right after installing 9.3. I literally watched the battery drop from 100% to 90% in less than 10 minutes with light usage. No app was going rogue, the battery was just noticeably dropping faster.

    So, I did the run till the run the phone to 0% shut off calibration. After a full charge, coconutBattery shows the capacity to 98.8% of design and phone battery lasts noticeably longer.

    But other posters here have a very good point - turn off the battery % and enjoy the device. Still I'm going to be doing the 0% calibration more than once every 3-4 months, but not more frequently than once a month.
