I turned it off, unplugged it, now it's 99%. What's it doing? A computer expert friend said my battery is bad because it's old, I just got the pad Nov. 2015. How do batteries last?

They are good for 2 years or so. It really depends on how they were charged over their life.

If you let the battery go to 0% every day then the battery will die sooner than 2 years. If you keep it full most of the time it could go beyond 2 years. The 2 year mark does not mean it does not charge, but it could make it so the battery drains faster, or has odd charging patterns.

iOS 10.3 supposedly fixed the 30% issue, but there are rumors that Apple is just hiding the actual % charged, or normalizing it to appear the way a human would expect. Those are just rumors...



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
