Ever since I downloaded ios7 to my iphone 4s, my battery dies twice as fast... I have it plugged in to my computer and charging right now and the percentage is GOING DOWN.... what the **** is going on?
I have a simular problem. my phone won´t charge any were else but on my compiuter. any one know how to fix this?
My iPhone 4S after the iOS7 update won't charge either, not even on the computer. The battery just went straight to 1%. It's just stuck on low battery. I called Apple and they told me it was more likely a software issue than battery issue. Completely bummed. I'm hoping they can fix it... and I don't have to replace it. My warranty already expired. I've tried to restore it, hard reset it, and turn on/off and nothing worked. Hopefully they find a solution to this problem.
Basic troubleshooting from the User's Guide is reset, restart, restore (first from backup then as new). Try each of these in order until the issue is resolved.
I installed IOS7 on my iPhone 4S as soon as it was available.
It first worked ok for a couple of days.
Then yesterday after loading battery overnight, the battery was only at 48%, a few minutes later it went to zero.
When connected to a wall charger it was showing 100% battery load, but disconecting it was shutting down for low battery.
I tried to restore in DFU mode but I got the error 2001 after waiting a few second for the iphone to answer, which was not happening due to low battery.
I replaced the battery, with one that was at 50%. Then I could restore it, and it seemed to work normally.
Then after a few hours on without use, it appears to have switched off for low battery again.
I tried to load the batterry over night, but it was just keeping in a continuous rebooting loop, and not charging.
Trying to restore from iMac or Macbook gives 2001 error.
So it was not the battery, it is just not charging the battery on any computer or wall charger.
What can I do, please help me !!!!
2001 Error? I was just at the Apple store yesterday and that was the same exact issue my 4S ran across. Error 2001 is a hardware issue they told me - an issue with the charging dock or at least part that involves charging (don't know what they called it) For iPhone 4S they told me that part cannot be replace, for iPhone 5 it can be. The only options they gave me is to replace my phone. (If you have Apple+ they will replace it for free) In my case, my warranty was out (1 year, 3 months) and I did not purchase Apple+ so the options were:
1. Buy replacement 4S - 200 I believe, 90 day warranty
2. Buy new phone - 5S or 5C & try to trade in old 4S
3. They actually told me next cheapest option beside replacement phone (200) was to buy prepaid phone till my contract ends.
Still upset about the options they gave me... I still feel like its the iOS7 that burnt out my charger dock thing, but they won't budge.
You can try to make an Apple appointment or call them, but I feel like they might just tell you the same thing.
I also overheard them talking to someone who had a greyed out wifi and told them it was hardware issue too! They said that they make iPhones in batches and sometimes they just get a "bad" batch where their hardware just all happen to have problems at the same time. I don't think this explanation makes me feel any better. All I can say is "great timing" Breaking our phones RIGHT after we update. Too much of a coincidence.
Yes same issue with me, since I downloaded IOS7 my phone cant be charged at allllll and also on my IPAD !!!! my GOD Apple has to do something about it , I cant even use my phone anymore and I need it as my work nature demands to make lot of calls !!!!
Thats awful !!!! Apple has to hold responsibility caused to their users.
