    It'll get worse. Mine would shut off at random. Sometimes at 1%, sometimes at 30%. No way to tell when it would happen.


    Enjoy. :hat:

    If you jog with an Iphone when it's 10 degrees out, it will go from 50% to zero in a second. Happened to me several times

    I'm so pissed with Apple right now. On my iPhone, the alarm isn't working correctly and the touchscreen sometimes becomes unresponsive. Then, I had my latest notes disappear. On top of that, my MacBook won't boot up so I have an appointment with the Genius Bar later today. :mad:

    Turn off the background apps under the general icon. My 5 now has better battery life since I updated to iOS7.

    No. There's a setting to refresh background apps. Turn this off and the apps will just be dormant. Saves a shitload of battery.

    Maybe so. I'm going to ask about it when I'm at the Apple store. I'll probably become distracted by all the shiny new products though. ;)

    Apple makes shitty products. If you put an apple logo on a pile of dog shit you idiots would line up to pay $500 for it.
