Hello good people! Just sharing my recent experience in tak
Hello good people! Just sharing my recent experience in taking my beloved Apple I-Phone 6S-Plus (32G) in for a new battery at the Apple "Genius" Technicians. I had a rather testy experience with the entire process that they have now. When you get in to the Store someone will direct you to the correct area of the interior of the store, like a large chicken coup area. Gone is the line to see "one" technician for your device, hence 8 years ago as I remember! Today, you see several people with the Blue T-Shirts with a tiny Apple emblem and everyone just moving in and out from the large BIG Back rear door.
The process is all about the first person that sees you types in your issue. However, I had already typed my issue when I booked the appointment. The battery still worked fine, just that it started to discharge a little faster and didn't have the same capacity, hence almost 4-years old.
Sunday afternoon at 2:30pm was the earliest appointment over at The Mall at Millennia (Orlando, Florida) since BEST BUY told me earlier that Sunday that they didn't have the Battery and that they didn't service my Apple I-Phone 6S-Plus any longer and reason I had to book the appointment with APPLE at the mall later in the day!
Well, on Sunday I had thought all was okay with my beloved Apple I-Phone after they gave it back after waiting around for another 55 minutes. It was sort of strange that the battery showed only 2% capacity charge but, I was so tired of waiting around that I said, "Give me the Phone and I will finish the charge in my car." Well, the wrong thing to do as all night long the Battery never increased its capacity above 2% and I tried several cables and chargers, plus I performed two (2) hard resets and nothing.
Today (Monday) the first Genius Technician from today thought it was a Software Problem! It was my thoughts that something was not left connected correctly inside my I-Phone. It kept Turning OFF on the technician and I kind of hinted several times that I don’t believe the New Battery is taking charge even though the displays says it is as the battery never went above 2% capacity but, he didn’t listen to me.
This technician wiped the entire memory and EPOM memory (erasable programmable read-only memory). This took 35 minutes and guess what? At the very end my Apple I-Phone turned OFF on him again! He didn't have the decency to look me in the EYE and tell me that I was correct in my assessment and instead, he placed my I-Phone in a bubble bag so, the 2nd technician can open it in the back room!
Monday's visit resulted in the back room technician found the cause and she informed me that the Genius Technician from yesterday (Sunday) left my DOT Power connector and Antenna Connector underneath the new Battery!
How can this be possible, right! This is the reason the Battery never went above 2% capacity. So, after they opened my I-Phone for the 2nd time and gave it back, I made sure to wait another 20 minutes allowing my I-Phone to charge and took the opportunity to set everything up like new because the wiping of memory from the first technician! I forced them to give me an additional 30 days of warranty in case anything else happens to my I-Phone 6S-Plus (32G) because of me coming back today and their rather SLOPPY workmanship from Sunday!
I Love my APPLE I-Phone 6S-Plus and they were trying to sell me the I-Phone 13 PRO MAX ($1,100 Big Ones), I said no way Jose! As a matter of fact, my 6S-Plus is the same size as the new 13 Pro Max with the exception that the 13 Pro Max does have about 1/4 of inch of additional screen TOP & Bottom over my 6S-Plus but, this in my opinion was not enough to open my wallet of $1,100 plus tax!!!
You know WHAT? After all of this, I finally found a very good You-tube Video and I could have done it myself! Apple Service has changed totally and in my humble opinion APPLE no longer has the skilled and experienced employees to service their devices!! I am glad that I turn OFF my I-Phone last night so, not to stress the New Battery!
Here is a very good video that I found today but, I thought for $49.99 plus tax it was a no brainer to allow Apple "Genius" technicians do the job, however, I am not so sure anymore!!!
Mistakes happen. They fixed the issue for you which in the end is what matters. The 6s plus is a 6 year old phone so you should be happy anyone still services it. Yes the new ones are spendy but in my opinion you could go with the regular iPhone 13 - have a much bigger screen in a smaller package, better cameras, battery, processor, screen resolution, speakers, faster internet etc. The only people that actually “need” a pro version are YouTubers. For everyone else it’s a preference thing.
It happens. Once in a while, a mistake happens but the good part is they’ll do what it takes to make it right including replacing your device as needed. And watching YouTube videos, it looks really easy. But if you’ve never opened a smart phone before, there is a chance a mistake will happen and in worse case, you will end up spending more. Also, after a repair, it’s a good idea to give them time to complete the service including factory restore to ensure all works fine.
Im with you, but for me its my iPhone 8 256g. I haven’t had any issues & original battery is still good… but i will replace batteries as needed to keep my 8
to a certain extent. I had an old IPhone 3, that eventually wouldn’t let me make calls on. I have an old 2nd Gen IPad, that is nothing but a bookend now because it isn’t able to be updated. I choose to use a newer model IPhone because my 7+ was slower and the battery was pretty much non usable. I was having to charge it at least 6 times a day, dnc sometimes 8-10 times a day. Now with my 13PM, which I was able to use a $350 trade in for my 7+ to lower the cost of my 13PM. That is yet another thing about keeping an older model. Every year, trade in prices go down. If keeping your old phone is what you want to do, by all means, it’s your choice. I’m just saying what happens eventually.
So to summarize you have an old phone and someone made a mistake. Things happen and it is true eventually your 6 will no longer work to which I am sure you will type a long comment about how that shouldn’t be and etc.
Good for you, Gene! Go at it. I am used to my Phone and know it inside and out so much so that I almost did that Battery replacement myself and now that I have found the right Video, I will. Have fun!
Hi! I’m really tired of the bad battery life I get with my i
I’m really tired of the bad battery life I get with my iPhone 12 Pro. I mostly get 5.5 hours which is not very good. My battery health is at about 80 % after 1.5 years of use. I’m thinking to buy the iPhone 13. I’m a car photographer and plane spotter. Of course, I don’t own neither of them, but I just take pictures of random cars I like. Since 60 % of the pictures from my phone are made with the telephoto camera, I really think that it has to show how important it is for me. The 13 series have really good battery life so that’s the only win for me.
I’m really not sure tho. Should I give the extra telephoto camera for battery life? Both of them are extremely important for me. What do you guys think?
I also want to mention that I got the back glass replaced on my 12 Pro so I no longer have my phone water resistant anymore.
For those saying: buy this iPhone or that iPhone, it is better. Yes, the 13 Pro series might be better, but I found a good deal on the 13 and I really don’t want to spend 500 more Euros on the 13 Pro (500€=$550USD).
13Pro has 3X optical zoom lens. Would seem beneficial. If you replace the batter in your 12, it’ll be much better for about $80.
thanks for the advice. 12 series iPhones have bad batteries so it wouldn’t make a huge difference. After one year I would have to replace the battery again.
I really only have to chose between keeping my 12 Pro or getting the 13. There is no other option!!! Please understand!!!
That seems awfully short if the battery was fully charged at the start. Have you tried performing a restore using iTunes or Finder on a Mac?
yeah, has a look at the S22. Has everything I want but I also have an Apple Watch, iPad, MacBook…
you see where it’s going.
I also really hate Galaxy Watches. They’re nothing more than just pain in my a22hole.
far as iphone goes had a 12 pro for 1 year battery health was still 100% it was the longest lasting cell phone i ever owned and ive owned a lot!
13 series has better battery life - that being said you might want to think of investing in a DSLR if you are going to do photography for a living. As great as phones are the sensors are tiny and they work great in a pinch or for average consumers but they are definitely not professional level.
Mike O'Neil Just enjoy your phone 12 or 13 whatever. You will always have to replace a battery at some point and of u change the battery at Apple your phone will still be waterproof. Why make everything complicated?
5.5 hours screen on time? Or like overall like it was 100% 5 hours before and it gets completely discharged
thats strange, what i would recommend is get magsafe battery pack or a battery pack and not jump to iphone 13 , iphone 12 pro is overall a better device , i myself am using 12 pro max and the telephoto camera really makes a difference
I was at the ATT store in serramonte. They have a same going on now if u trade in your iPhone 12 for a 13 u get 1000 off toward a iPhone 13 . It’s like getting a new phone for free. The only catch is you have to sign up for two year service contract . It’s really weird how they do it but worth a try ?? I traded my phone for iPhone 12 . Gd luck
Hi I bought an iphone 11 pro max with 92% battery capacity 2
I bought an iphone 11 pro max with 92% battery capacity 2 months ago. I used it for 1 month with no reduction in battery capacity then I moved to another country and it started to reduce 1% every 9 days. I am using my phone for social media apps only with no games. Now my phone is 89%. IOS 14.7.1. Does updating to IOS 15 solves this battery problem? I am wondering if anyone know if this is normal or what’s wrong with my phone please.
Just update it bro.
Sometimes it cause of software out of date or some other software problems.
I also bought an iPhone 8 with 85% battery 3 months ago and I just updated it to IOS 15.2 and I didn’t see any Problems with my battery or battery health.
My device does not show the capacity reduction numbers and I am so much happier than a lot of people that use their device as a battery tester. I just - use it.....
pretty much all electronic devices can use dual voltage and it is in fact the charger not the device that is dealing with the voltage.
My phone is draining very fast now since I updated to iOS 15 tho my bh is at 100% but my battery don’t last anymore
which phone do you have?
So the update is not good for the battery ?
Looks like it varies from phone to another.. someone has got the battery health increased after updating which is weird
It’s technology. It’s bound to depreciate with time. You don’t expect it to stay that way forever. Just enjoy your phone and pay little attention to the battery life. And at the right time, purchase a new phone.
it’s already 2 years and that’s normal with any phone. If you are so much concerned about the battery and don’t want to buy a new mobile. You can consider replacing the battery from apple service. But 89% is still not a very bad battery health. It’s moderate
i will replace it one day but i am concerning about how it decrease so fat.. 1% in 9 days. Does the voltage difference between 2 countries damage the battery?
mine didn’t! I feel like my batter got a boost really! If I never used my phone at all, I’d probably only have to charge once in 24 hours! And even with constant I only drop to maybe 80 percent in 24 hours! I could never do that with the Samsung I used before I got my iPhone!
Iphone 13 pro battery health decreased in just 2 months Any
Iphone 13 pro battery health decreased in just 2 months
Anyone facing the same problem with the pro’s
(No games were played such as pub g or COD mobile)
turn off the phone, keep it in the box and in your drawer. that will keep the battery health up and high for a long time.
That's a lot, my iPhone 12 is a year old and still 100% using the Apple 20w charger. The key is not to charge above 80% and not let it go below 30 or 40%, charging too high or letting it go too low puts a lot of strain on lithium batteries. A number of short charges throughout the day is better than one long charge
BATTERY HEALTH IS NOT ALWAYS GOING TO STAY AT 100%, IT IS NOT A PROBLEM IT GOES DOWN, IT IS JUST NATURAL…
Geez, all this obsession with battery health, how did it even start…
How exactly is this an issue though. Stop overthinking it and simply use your phone. People psych themselves out with that number and in day to day usage you would never notice it
Oh and batteries wear out with use and every person uses their iPhone differently no matter what. Charging and usage patterns are different no matter what so it’s hard say.
It having gone down 1% in two months is not a problem.
Yup! iOS 15 has been hurting the battery on so many iPhones out there. This is not normal. I have an iPhone XR on iOS 12.4 and the battery life is on 100%!! Had the phone for almost three years!
I got the iPhone 12 Pro Max on iOS 15 and the battery life is on 82%!!
My iPhone 12 Pro Max is only 8 months old. So for those that are saying “It’s normal” get your head out of your asś! This isn’t normal. iOS 15 is a battery killer.
You will need to replace the battery once it drops below 80%. Chemical elements in the battery do degrade over time. All I can say is that you shouldn’t get it overheated and always charge once it drops below 50 percents. But it can only slow the degradation. As I’ve stated earlier, you will need to replace it in a couple of years or so. My previous iPhone stayed 100 percent for most of the year, then it quickly deteriorated to 93. Still it was good as new, no worries there. I would just scrub that functionality and give a warning once it’s time to replace the bat.
This percentage is an estimate that Apple makes. A possible prediction. That, of course, means nothing at all. Just keep in mind that you have to replace a battery once every 2 to 3 years. New batteries are not that expensive. Luckely, you can easily replace the battery of your iPhone yourself.......
Just don’t drain the battery less than 60%.
Once it comes down to 60 % recharge it to 90 or even 100 % depending on how your usage estimate is
That's pretty normal. My 11 Pro got to 98% on the second month and stayed there for almost a year after that.
Each and every battery is unique. Manufacturers usually give the capacity with a tolerance (±3%, for example). This just means that yours was from the below average group.
I got my 13PM 3 days after release, my average screen time is 13 hours, I’m disabled and can’t work, and I get bored. My battery health is still at 100%.
I remember my 12 pro max got 99% battery health after 5 months but this 13 pro max I have observed that the battery keeps draining even though it is in standby mode.
Mine is on 82 and it’s an iPhone 12 Pro Max and not even a year old. I’m trading this phone in for the S21 Ultra 5G.
yes. I’ve been with them for over ten years. I never once had a battery issue like this on any of my old devices. I don’t trust Apple anymore. I’m leaving.
Battery percent drop is upto charge cycle apple logarithm have designed on that pattern for example it have drop count equivalent to charge cycle
So with iPhones (I don't have one but considering one) I keep reading that if the battery health drops below 80% then it's time to replace the battery?
Why can't the battery go down to let's say 40%?
It’s not a “problem”. It’s what happens with batteries. I’ve had my 12 Pro for 7 months and it’s at 93%. Very normal.
They shouldn’t start decreasing until at least 6 months later if you have your iPhone cool & don’t let it drop between 30% to 40% battery power and when its reach 30% battery power. Put the iPhone on charge turn off your iPhone while charging & leave it charging over night which reach 100% battery power, but don’t use the iPhone while it is charging because it’s can cause the battery to degrade if you not using while charging plug is in it’s not normally recommended until it’s fully charged at least 80% & not below 80% which can have effect to degrade faster if don’t disconnect it below 80%, but it’s will be 100% in the morning as it’s safer when fully charged overnight while you’ll in bed.
Every battery is different and within tolerances … everyone uses their phone different… you’ve lost 1% in 2 months … it’s fine and completely normal it just means you’ve been using your phone which you paid a lot of money for
I noticed that upgrading to new IOS updates was decreasing my iPhone maximum battery capacity. I stopped upgrading and my percentage is still at 93% since 6 months.
yes my iphone 12 is still on iOS 6 now. i stopped updating the firmware so the battery health will never drop.
You buy car and after a few years your battery can't use and need to buy a new one tonreplace your battery ..did you ask the same thing to car salesman why i need to change my battery ?
I don’t know,but how I safe my battery health on my iPhone
I usually start charging my iPhone from 20 or 25% to 100%.
I charge my iPhone only from power bank. Because my power bank when my iPhone reaches 100% my power bank automatically turn off and the charging stop.
That’s good because my battery is not still longer on 100%
And I don’t worry if I sleep in the night and put my phone to charge all night because my iPhone stop when the battery reaches 100%
I use only original cables and adapters.
iPhone 13 come without adapter make sure that you are buying original adapter.
Throw it away, no good…. No you imbeciles. It’s called using your battery. I’ve had XR for 2 years I’m at 92% and was at 97% after 3 months
Yes same problem Bhai my battery health is low 98 percent in only 3 months whithout use my iphone 12 what i can do to maintain 100 percent battery health
Battery health from 97 to 92 in 7 days….. after iOS 15 updat
Battery health from 97 to 92 in 7 days….. after iOS 15 update
While I don’t
at the posts, I do find it mildly humorous that people continue to worry so much about the battery health of their devices. I maybe have looked at my 12 Pro Max’s three times in the year I’ve owned it. It’s at 90% but it shouldn’t bother anyone until it gets below the 80% level.
Why are you watching your battery health so hard? It’s gonna decrease. The update didn’t affect your battery health at all. Batteries lose capacity as they age. There’s nothing you can do about it. Just use the phone and when the battery health gets below 80% either replace the battery or replace the phone.
Am I missing something I’ve never really looked at my battery health until I joined this group. What’s the big deal about it?
there is no big deal with it. We get questions like this a lot. Batteries lose capacity as they age. It’s perfectly normal. Not sure why so many people ask questions about it because they get the same answers every time
I’m pretty sure losing 5% battery capacity in a week is a big deal. Not like it happened in the span of a year.
it’s really not a big deal no. After updates the battery health recalibrates and can go up or down. If it dropped 5% then it wasn’t accurately reported when they first looked at it and was updated to a more accurate number the next time they looked at it. Also, more things could’ve been at play here. Like they could’ve been using their phone in temps that were to hot for it or doing other things that could cause damage to the battery. You never know. In typical usage scenarios there’s no reason at all whatsoever to even bother looking at your battery health for your first year with a phone
I've had my iPhone XS for 2 years and battery health is still at 100% I used my phone for hours sometimes
How old is your I phone 12 had mine since may this year 100%health still
about 5 months old now still 100 % battery health
100% to 96% on iOS 14 in a month, iPhone 12. Phone hardly used as iPad is main source of getting work done. Don’t obsess over the battery health. iPhone 7+ (that I upgraded from and used by my 9 year old for gaming and YouTube) 82% for the last year and he charges daily.
