Try another cable, try another charger, clean out the plug bit, try resetting the phone.

If you're on a 4 that's never had its battery changed, it's perfectly plausible that the cells are all but dead now and won't store any charge.

Thanks guy, just as I was giving up hope after four hours of charging it suddenly bleeped and is up and running again. I need an upgrade anyway so I will replace it.

Having battery issues with my iPhone 6S, it’s only 2 years old. Charges up to 100%, then drops like a stone over a few hours, literally will go from 80 to 40 in 10 mins,, then seems to return to normal from 10% to 1%.  Any ideas?

I have a 6s too. I have charge cables everywhere. In the car, bedside table, kitchen and one I can easily take with me. It's a total joke. Once it drops below 50% then simply using the phone for a few minutes or checking the internet can mean dropping 15% is 3 minutes. It is ridiculous.

I don't know if there is any answer at all.

I just did a chat session with apple. If it is out of warranty then it is out of warranty and that is that. There are some they will replace for free but they are because they shut down for no reason.

Basically you are fucked.

There are some 6S battery replacement kits on Amazon.

You’ve still got a few days left for them to replace your battery for £25.  I did it on my 7 last week and it’s now lasting me a day without charging!

Evening. After a bit of help. The kids have an iPad and the photos they take on it are appearing on my iPhone. Tried all sorts to stop them appearing on my phone. Any ideas on how to disable this?

I had the same problem.

They take screen shots of games they play so they’d like to keep the pics. Is there no other way to stop the photos appearing on my phone?

Likewise. I’m very happy with it. I’d still prefer a touch sensor for Apple Pay / ID recognition but that’s not too hard bother.

Lol, no comparison. The S10 is literally better than the XR in every way to be honest.
The XR has a 720P screen in 2019, a joke.  It has no SD card slot (no apple phone has it), is not water resistant, has no headphone jack, has a single camera with no tech. Also has a weaker battery. It has a great processor but that is it.

I've always had iphones and its just come to a point where its hard to change over purely because everything i have is backed up on apple clouds and whatnot. That's how they get you i guess

I jumped from Samsung to Apple a couple of years back and despite the hardware advantages for the latest Samsungs, I wouldn't go back - everything 'just works' in the Apple world, Apple takes security and privacy seriously, and transitioning from one handset model to another is seamless. Comes down to personal preference I guess.

If you do want to get stick to iphone, get an iphone X for about the same price. Much better display and camera and almost as fast.

Many fair points but also some misinformation in your post

- XR water resistant up to a meter
- XR battery life is better (refer review link in above post)

Also, S10 has an objectively better screen but in real world use it not a differentiator for most people. 

Camera on the Samsung is great it must be said.

Overall not enough there to make me switch given the pluses of the Apple ecosystem.

https://www.tomsguide.com/us/galaxy-s10e-vs-iphone-xr,review-6275.html

But there are so many 'abilities' missing in iphones, stuff you take for granted in Windows and Android...

- Ability to use SD cards or external NAND.
- Ability to attach peripherals such as mice, gamepads and others through USB OTG
- No pointer support.  Want to quickly edit a presentation by projecting your screen wirelessly on any smart TV and attaching a mouse? Nope, cannot do. Use your fingers instead....
- Cannot copy and paste media files (Music, High def videos etc) onto your phone from your PC or another device. Need the infuriating piece of  shit-ware that is itunes to do any media management between devices.
- Does not interface seamlessly with Windows like Android does. 90% of PC users use Windows.
- Transferring files using bluetooth? ... Cannot do.
- Using NFC for a multitude of payment apps? Nyet, only apple pay for iphones.
- Install an app unavailable on apple store? No sideloading apps.  That means no emulators and other cool free streaming apps.  I can play PSP games on my S9, using an emulator and an external controller.  I can even play on TV with wireless mirroring! 

These are all i can remember off the top of my head....  I am sure there are more..

Having said that, if you are a basic user, (few social media/connectivity apps, casual games, browsing and calls,  ios will work smoothly and excellently for you.  Quality of apps on the store are good and they rarely encounter bugs.

Apologies for the oversight.  Didnt realize the XR was IP rated. Thought only the XS phones had it.
You can absolutely notice the difference in sharpness between a 720p screen and a 1440p screen. Put the two side by side and you can clearly tell the difference in sharpness and fidelity.

To top it off, the S10 has an OLED screen, which offers superior contrast and true blacks and looks much better in general.

Btewen the XR and S10, S10 wins.   The XS max, however, is comparable to the S10 and has a better processor/soc.  Still loses out on display resolution, audio quality and camera.

Heh, it does help that my ecosystem is Apple now (phone, tablet, macbook, airpods, Apple tv) and those things all work seamlessly - literally all interoperates - screen casting, file transfer, workflow resumption, synchronisation, etc etc.

With the cloud and cloud storage I have zero need for sd cards any longer (don't even remember when I last needed to use a USB stick)

I have reached the stage where ease of use has become of higher value than the flexibility that Android offers
