From accidental water damage to signs of snooping, we reveal six clues that something is very wrong with your iPhone. Your iPhone uses a lithium-ion battery, which has a limited lifespan. Every time you discharge and charge your iPhone, you wear down its maximum battery capacity. Over two years (or about 500 charging cycles), you’d expect to have about 80% of battery capacity left. That means an iPhone that would’ve lasted for 10 hours of use would now only survive an 8-hour stint off-charge.
There are six red flags that something is seriously wrong with your iPhone. Ancient ‘lost people of Scotland’ etched a mysterious message, which has been discovered. Never open an iMessage from a ‘friend’ with these four words in it. On Mars, your voice will sound radically different. Here’s what officially qualifies you as a bore. Apple’s iPhones are well-oiled machines, but there are a few critical indicators that everything is in order.
Apple has a page revealing how to find the LCI on every iPhone model. “An LCI will be activated when it comes into contact with water or a liquid containing water,” said Apple. “An LCI won’t be activated because of humidity and temperature changes that are within the product’s environmental requirements.” Most modern iPhones are water-resistant, but it’s a good idea to avoid soakings where possible.

You can check your battery health by going into Settings > Battery and tapping Battery Health. If your iPhone has a very low battery health and it’s dying too quickly, consider upgrading to a newer model. Alternatively, you can get an out-of-warranty battery replacement from Apple for $69/£69. This is a much cheaper option than buying a new iPhone. Your iPhone randomly restarting isn’t always a major cause for concern – but it could be. It’s especially problematic if it’s happening a lot, for no apparent reason.
