Battery usage not updating

After replacing my iPhone 6 battery with an ifixit replacement, the battery usage has not updated (in the settings menu where it shows which app is using how much battery).

It's been about a week and it still states, "battery information will be available after using iPhone for a few minutes."

I have calibrated the battery (let it drain then charge to 100% without using it) and still no change.

I was very careful to not pry on any other parts so I don't believe there is any other damage. Everything else on the phone works fine.

Is this a good question?

Try 3Utools (Windows) or CoconutBattery (Mac OS) instead of the battery life apps on the app store.

Did you try a hard reset after the remplacement? Push the ON/OFF button and the Home button at the same time for 10 seconds until the phone restarts and you see the apple logo.

I'll check those apps out.

I have tried the hard reset a few times with no resolve. I have a replacement battery in the way. Maybe a faulty battery.

Chosen Solution

It could be a faulty battery and that is certainly the logical thing to try next. However, I would also look at the area surrounding the battery connector again, this time with magnification. The components in that area are very tiny, less than 1 mil X 0.5 mil so even though you may think everything is okay, you probably wouldn't notice anything wrong unless you have eagle eyes (which I, clearly, no longer have ;>)

I have ordered a replacement battery and will install and update once I finish.
