OT iPhone 5, start up times.


I-missRichardTee

Recommended Posts

My iPhone 5 ( one Generation less than latest ) takes at least 5 minutes to boot up after I find it dead in the morning. I have always wondered is there a "trick" to speed up the elapsed start times. Also, lately it seems to be more than 5 minutes. Finally, is AC direct, the quicker way, versus eg plugging into my Macbook?

Why would it seem to be taking even longer?

I could swear ( I have not sat around with a stop watch to make scientific tests ) that there were times, iphone 5 started up much quicker than 5 minutes... seems like I have seen very very short ( seconds ) times, on a few rare occasions. Hmmm

Thanks

Just got off the phone with a tech ( I think it was 10 minutes an estimate ) after waiting for it to boot up. She said it depends.. it could take more than 5 minutes.

As it did today. What is not clear is why the variation in time, from a dead start.

Maybe a dead start is not a fixed state of aaaa "deadness". Maybe there is dead enough to turn off, and somehow deader than dead?

Thank you

I know if it is REALLY dead, it won't start until the battery has a certain amount of charge. Maybe part of that 5 min is waiting for the battery to get some charge.

J Dan Hey Happy New Year and Happy Valentine Day? Naaa

So there are varying degrees of deadness? I do not understand this distinction.

My phone is seldom, virtually never ( and if so, only to reset it for a min or so ) manually turned off. It therefore always surprises me how weak the battery is ( a notorious downside of things iPhone) when I find it off, eg after a nap.

Since "it" by design turns itself off... I do not see a distinction between degrees of deadness of battery.

Anyone care to s'plain? Thanks

Are you talking about seeing the Apple logo and waiting for it to start, or something else?

A battery on the shelf, so to speak, will drain. It shuts off when the voltage gets to a certain point, but just because it's off doesn't mean the battery will hold the little remaining charge indefinitely...it will continue to drain, albeit at a slower pace. So if it shut itself off at 9pm and you discover it at 9am, it will be more dead than if you witnessed it shutting down and plugged it in immediately.

J Dan that just occurred this minute. I caught iPhone turning off, and immediately plugged into AC, not Macbook, and it turned on in a min or two; faster than the 5+ minutes it often takes. Thanks

That would be my thought also. If you run it down to absolute 0%, it needs to charge up to 2-3% before it can restart. Best way to charge it up is with an iPad adapter, a little bit more juice than the standard iPhone charger.
