Now that your i Phone is good as new and all your apps are downloading, give your phone a few days to recalibrate and get to know the battery again.I recommend fully charging your i Phone and letting it fully discharge a couple times before declaring the problem officially fixed or not.

I’ll use an i Phone in this article, but if you have an i Pad or i Pod with this problem, follow along – the solution is exactly the same.

I’ll be honest right off the bat: I can’t guarantee we’re going to be able to fix your i Phone.

Sometimes, issues related to i Phones randomly shutting off are caused by water damage or other unfortunate accidents. A lot of the time, you can fix this problem at home. More often than not, what’s going on is that your i Phone isn’t talking to the battery correctly.

Your i Phone’s software is in charge of monitoring the amount of battery life remaining on your i Phone.

If you go through Apple, you can visit a local Apple Store (make an appointment first), or begin the repair process online at getsupport.

If you’re looking for a less-expensive option, I recommend Cell Savers (available in these cities), a service that will meet you in as little as 30 minutes to replace your battery, or i Resq.com, a mail-in repair service that does good work.

Some people use an external battery pack like the ones you’ll find on Amazon as a temporary stopgap, but if your i Phone is damaged, it may not help at all. I sincerely hope this article helped you stop your i Phone from turning off when it still shows a percentage of battery life remaining.

If the software or firmware isn’t communicating properly with the battery, it’s not going to display the right percentage. This isn’t your simple run-of-the-mill software problem where your battery is draining too fast because your apps are crashing.

But it’s not necessarily a hardware problem either – so we need to address your i Phone’s . If it’s not “soft”-ware, and it’s not “hard”-ware, then its “Firm”-ware.
