>>> My 5s iPhone exhibits weird and unpleasant behavior and I ask for advice:
>>> It suddenly dies - black screen.
>>> If I try to wake it very soon after, by pressing home screen, I may get a pic of a battery drawing with a tiny red stripe at its bottom.Or not.
>>> But the iPhone at the time of ?death? may have told me anything from battery levels in the 70?ies to levels in the 20?ies.
>>> Only charging will revive it, and always, it reacts the same way:
>>> It sometimes briefly shows the empty battery (red stripe)
>>> The apple logo lights up
>>> the vibration sound comes on after - is it 7 sec?
>>> the lock screen comes on - another 7 sec? Maybe the absolute timings are different from what I state here, but always the same.
>>> I can then log in, activate sim - and the battery level shows what it did before it died - 70?ies or 20?ies or whatever.
>>> If I unplug it soon after revival it tends to die again soon, with the same rigmarole.
>>> So far, it always revives when plugged in. Been going on for about a month or more, because I?m chicken to give it to some shop to fix.
>>> It may tend to die when I ask it to do ?heavy?? things: update apps as I look for travel assistance or search - don?t know?.
>>> Anyway, knowledgeable and always on and thinking techs:
>>> Is the battery dying?
>>> Is the connection to the battery dying?
>>> Is something else going on?
>>> What should I get fixed at the shop (provided I find one I trust)?

>> Have you checked with Apple, I know they had a recall for certain iPhone 5 models due to battery and power button problems, if your phone is covered then they will repair it for free.
