  1. To do this, first discharge the battery completely until the iPhone dies. For example, start complex 3D games or high-resolution videos to accelerate the discharge.
  2. Then fully charge the battery. Leave the iPhone on the charger for about an hour after a full charge.

  4. Let the iPhone sit for a few hours. The iPhone should be deeply discharged and not react at all to an attempt to switch it on.
  5. Fully charge the battery again. The battery should now be calibrated and show reliable percentages again.
