The charge icon says "charged" on my iPhone, but "charging" on iTunes from time to time. I'm worried that my battery is draining in and out as I keep it plugged to my Mac. Please let me know what you think !





iPhone 4S, iOS 6.0.2

    This can be the findings of a poor charger, or a faulty battery. Also the USB Cable has to be good. Try the Wall Charger, if it works perfect to charge the iPhone, then the iPhone is OK. If problems occur with Wall Charger too, then the iPhone is faulty, most likely battery. If this is the case and if there is Warranty or AppleCare, make Genius reservation and take or send iPhone for resolution.
