My wife and I have new iPhones we bought on the same day. The main difference between our phones:
- I keep 3G off on my phone, she keeps hers on.
- She has Skype on her phone to contact her parents, and she leaves it on 24/7 to hear when a message comes in.
- I always double click the home button to turn off running programs. She does this maybe once a week.
Everything else is the same.
Yesterday, something weird happened. We both leave our iPhones charging all night. The battery on her iPhone completely discharged about 4 hours after she unplugged it. In the same amount of time, mine was at ~87%. What I found was that she had around 12 programs running on her phone. Closing those helps, I know, but would it cause a complete discharge within 4 hours?
Also, it wasn’t just a normal “low power, shut down” shut down. It was absolutely, completely disharged…down to less than 1%. After plugging in the charging cord, it still wouldn’t turn on at all for about 30 minutes.
Do we have a defective iPhone that needs to be exchanged?
