    Thanks for the info on coconut Battery. Sad it works that way.

    On your battery issue, my 5s that I keep as a backup does exactly that. It can drop like a stone just sitting there then sticks on a lower % for a while then drops fast again. I have a feeling the new battery will solve it for you.

    I think Apple has dramatically restricted the amount of battery information available to iOS apps. So, to get that level of detail, it pretty much has to be a MacOS app. One wonders how long Coconut Battery will be able to keep grabbing as much as it does.

    Thanks for that. It's wonderful to know that one is not alone….

    Only time will tell. The one Apple put in last year looked great at the beginning, but after less than a year it was quickly down hill.

    One interesting thing. The iPhone said the battery was at 100% but, as you see, Coconut Battery says 96.8%.

    A half hour later, still charging, Coconut Battery says 100% at 2043 mAh.

    Glad you got the new battery. Keep us posted. That old one looks quite similar to the one I took out of a 5s.

    Just a brief update on the new battery.

    I went for a longish (34K, 20 mile) bike ride yesterday. The phone was at 100% when I left. I tracked the ride using the Apple Watch Workout app. This hands off Location Services tasks to the phone, so the iPhone's Bluetooth, GPS and cell phone radios are working pretty much full time. After 20K (an hour) I stopped for coffee. The phone was only down to 99%. That's very good.

    After coffee I stopped a few times to take photos. After I finished the ride (two hours including time for coffee and photos), the phone was only down to 89%. Again, very good.

    I only used the phone sporadically for the rest of the day. In the evening I streamed music to the phone over WiFi (Apple Music) and played it via a Bluetooth speaker for about two hours. When I put the phone on the charger, it was only down to 49%. I haven't seen that sort of battery life since the few months after I got the Apple replacement early last year.

    Seems great now, but only time will tell how long the good battery life lasts. The Apple replacement crapped out after about ten months.

    Thanks to all who encouraged me to get a new battery. It was the right thing to do.

    One oddity: Over the last six or eight months I've trained myself to use the iPhone as little as possible to conserve battery. It will take some time to get used to the fact that I can now use the phone any time I want to.

    It's nice to be taking photos again.

    Let's hope it keeps working well and BTW, with your attached photo, I presume you aren't swearing at us with whatever the Wat Khok Faek is.

    Sort of interesting.

    - "Wat" is the Thai word for temple, which is where the photo was taken. The full name of the temple is Wat Khok Faek. "Khok" is like a small hill or mound. "Faek" is a kind of bunching grass that kind of looks like lemongrass. I suspect that sometime in the past there was a hill with that sort of grass on it after which the village and the temple were named.

    This area was part of the Khmer (Angkor Wat) empire. Some of the temples have artifacts from that era (a thousand years ago), but I think this wat is not very old and doesn't seem to be of historical interest.
