    iPhone 4S 10% Power Shutdown

    One thing I've noticed in the 1 week that I've had my iPhone 4S is that when the battery gets down to 10%, my iPhone will shutdown and won't come back up until I've charged it for a bit.

    Is this normal?

    My iPad1 will go until it gets to 1% and then will shutdown, so that's what I'm used to.

    Any ideas?

    That doesn't sound right mine can get all the way down to 1 percent before it goes off I would get it checked out soon

    Try this first

    1. Try draining the battery all the way till it doesn't turn on again (Keep trying to turn it on when the charge icon comes on the screen)

    2. Then charge it all the way to 100% (Do not use your phone as it is charging)

    3. Then drain all the way back down to 0% again and do the same as step 1.

    Thanks. Might actually take a couple of days to do 2 cycles.

    Maybe I'll play games or stream video for a while to run it down faster.

    i always thought that with the Smartphones, iPhones, blackBerries, and Droids, that you didn't have to cycle the batteries. I am still learning

    Ran a 2 hour movie 3 times, went out and later took a photo with it when it was at 20% and it shut down.

    Kept pressing the power button until it wouldn't do anything. It's charging now and then I'll run it down again.
