    Hi everyone. I bought my iphone 5 on Christmas day. Yesterday was the third time this has happened where I have been out and about and had plenty of battery left, and then all of a sudden it switches off, and when I try switch it back on, it acts as if it has no battery with the red battery picture showing. Yet when I get home and connect it to the charger it turns on and has the same amount of battery it had previously, as if nothing had happened.

    Anyone got any ideas as to whats going on? tomorrow will be the 90th day I have had it, I don't have Apple care or insurance, what could I do?

    Thanks guys.

    You could try restoring factory settings just in case it's a software glitch?

    But every iPhone to my knowledge comes with a one-year limited warranty. The 90-day thing is just for telephone support or something like that. Take it to an Apple Store and get it looked at/replaced

    It sounds like a connection issue, had you dropped or banged it at all prior to this first happening?

    The best solution is to get to an Apple Store and they will diagnose the issue. If they can fix the issue without needing new parts, they will typically do it in-house for free. As well as being covered by the 90 day warranty of the seller it should be covered by the manufacturer's warranty of one year :yy:

    Take it to an apple store. If you can show it's faulty they'll probably swap it out for a new one.
