Recently I was given a pre owned iPhone 7 by a family member. The camera is great. The ability to place phone calls is great. I use the app to audit Trailers and Marketing Materials in movie theaters. ( Am I allowed to write the company name?)
Anywho I was busy clicking buttons and taking about 100 photos this week for 1.5 hours. The battery in the phone went from 95% down to 10% capacity in that time.
Anyone have experience with these audits? Is it the app that is draining my battery?
Do I need to purchase a new battery?
I shop with an iPhone 7 and I replaced my battery over a year ago. I still have issues with battery draining if I am taking a lot of pictures, uploading them for a lengthy period of time. I have one of those small portable chargers. I plop it in my purse and use my iPhone charging cord to charge it as I go about taking pictures. It has truly saved me.
Today I took the phone to the Apple store and was told the battery is indeed the problem. It's at least 3 years old and was running at 75%. The Genius Bar replaced it within 1 hour and charged less than a local battery store wanted. Life is good.
