Why does my iPhone 6 turn off when I open apps

Okay, so my IPhones battery has been swelling in one spot and I ordered a new one and its on its way. But I have my phone plugged into the charger and it works just fine( as long as its plugged in) as soon as I take it off the charger and I try to go into an app or even if its just sitting there it says it "dies" and won't turn back on and is on the dead and need to be plugged in black screen. And as soon as I plug it back in it takes a second but the Apple sign comes up and says its at 100% but once I take it off and try to do something it does it again. Please any help

Is this a good question?

@travisc you would want to stop using your phone altogether. If you still have your swollen battery connected, plugging your phone in will still try to attempt to charge that battery. You are going to damage your phone more by continuing to use it.

You do need a new battery. But why are you asking if it crashes when you open apps? In your post you said if you take it off the charger, and it dies.

You said you ordered a battery, but just in case

Guaranteed your battery is dead. As soon as you swap the new one in it should fix this.
