Don't worry about it. It's just the CIA rebooting your phone.

Upgrade to a 6?

Common problem.  After upgrade battery hits 37% it shuts off. No fix.

It's a feature of Apple products..... Forced upgrades to new hardware.

Which 5 do you have and what upgrade did you do?

I have a 5s and just did the newest upgrade, 10.3.1, with no issues.

iPhone 5s with 10.3.1 also
May only be a problem if battery is already old and won't hold a charge.

The average battery in a cell phone is good for 900-1000 charges. That sounds like a lot, but it really isn't. That's less than 3 years of charging it every day, and that doesn't even mean a full empty-to-full recharge. This is the nature of lithium ion batteries of the size you typically find in most cell phones, apple, samsung, lg, htc, etc. It's not a phone thing, it's a lithium thing.

Anyway, the whole 5 series is pretty old as cell phones go, so... yeah, this isn't surprising. :\

A Moto G4 Play has a user swappable battery and can accept a 64G SD card for under $150.00.

Our experience with Apple updates has been as follows:

More than A couple year old devices become quirkier and less functional with each update.  Most of the time, there is no roll back of updates after a very short period of time.  When you call Apple for support, the solution has ge erally been, "You should buy A new device.

Nearly.
Every.
Time.

Period.

I had an android before this and liked it. We had to switch due to a family plan. I don't spend money on phones. I just wait until the next free one is allowed. So while I appreciate your advice and enthusiasm, I would prefer to discover any fix for this particular problem. Battery fine and lasted all day until latest update, now randomly shuts down around 20%. Acts like it's drained. Plug it in, boots up, shows 20%.

Have you tried doing a full wipe and restore thru iTunes?

No, you can do a full factory refresh and reinstall over wifi, or even OTA if you don't mind the data usage. iTunes is really just a portal into their app and music store any more. You *can* do it through iTunes, but you don't have to at all.

Remember, 10.3.1 was the next step in iOS. Totally different disk structure and moving to 64 bit only.

I would check and see if there are any 32 bit apps still running but hogging all the battery usage.

+1

Given the latest update structure, that could definitely be it. And a full wipe couldn't hurt. These are just miniature desktop-like computers these days, and are subject to some of the many same issues with updates-over-time that we see in "real" computers.

Editorial note: The modern smart phone is probably the very best actualization of the term "personal computer" we are ever likely to see in our lifetimes. $.02

I did the upgrade awhile ago with no problems.  The power issues just started 2 weeks ago.  Random DEAD.  New battery yesterday
so I should know in a couple days whether it was the battery.
