Temporary solution to iPhone 6s battery indicator failure

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus users who have manually set the time or time zone of their device have just encountered a new problem with the device. It appears that activating this setting causes a software issue that causes the battery percentage indicator in the status bar of the aforementioned iDevice not to update properly .

The problem affects only the latest iPhone models and only when using manual time, date, or time zone settings. Apple is already investigating the issue and will likely soon release an iOS update that will definitively fix the problem.

However, this error is quite annoying, since affected users cannot know the charge status of their battery . Something that could easily cause them to run out of battery power at the wrong time, simply because they are not aware of the percentage of battery power remaining before they leave home.

Luckily, Apple has published a method to temporarily fix the problem . The solution is quite simple and involves simply resetting the time and time zone to be set automatically. If you are among those affected by this problem all you have to do is follow the steps below:

  1. We played about Settings on our iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus.
  2. We access the section Settings – Date and Time.
  3. We activated the Auto Adjust option.
  4. We turn the device off and on.

With this simple configuration the problem should have been solved ; otherwise you should contact Apple to further examine your case. To contact the company you can find detailed information on their website, since depending on the country the contact phone number is one or the other.

As we said, this is a temporary solution to the problem of the incorrect battery percentage indicator on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus . As soon as Apple finds the exact fault and launches an iOS 9 update, it will be possible to manually reset the time or time zones without any problems.
