Default Time for a new iPhone

my iPhone 6s can no longer keep a charge. sat down to have breakfast, turned it on, showed 100% battery, moments later it turned itself off. hooked up to a battery pack, once it came back on, showed 10% battery.

guess the latest one is the 12. about 800. sigh....

Douglas,

You can get an iPhone 11 for $600. Or an iPhone SE for $400.

You can get the new iPhone that will be coming out, BUT it does not come with a charger or ear buds. NO THANKS.

I got an iPhone 11. Not the latest/ greatest version but hopefully itíll be more reliable than the 5 Droids Iíve gone through in the past 6 years. Either the batteries mess up or the software crashes. So I thought Iíd try the Apple.

If you are otherwise satisfied with your phone, just get a new battery. There are kits that come complete with the tools youíll need and many youtube vids to walk you through it. I changed both mine and my wifeís. Each kit is about $40 IIRC.

I also attempted to put a new battery in my Apple Watch. That was a fail. So I found a watch on Amazon for $35 (not Apple Watch) and I like it fine. It doesnít do everything Apple Watch does, but it does enough for me.

Doug, I am still using an Apple 6S. This summer my battery started draining rapidly also. Made an appointment at the Apple store and they changed the battery. Cost like $59.00 but since the phone works fine other than that it was a lot less than any new IPhone
