Have you attempted to replace the battery? Most likely it will need to be replaced.

It could, but really rare, be the battery is not communicating to the board properly. This will require performing a DFU and charging the phone to 100% after completion. However, that just depends on the age of the battery. If it's old, just do a replacement.

Honestly I think only a restore is required instead of DFU as that can fix battery percentage reading issues.

Op: Make sure to backup your iPhone to iTunes first before restoring it of course.


You are correct, a back up and restore should happen first before running the DFU. Sorry for skipping a step.
