Default I Phone Losing Charge

I phone 6 losing charge really fast. Turned off the location stuff, anything I wasn’t using. Capacity shows 83%, time for new battery? Thanks

I phone 6 hasn't been made for 5 years. Many had bad batteries and Apple was giving free replacement up until 18-24 months ago. I would call or stop in a store to have them run your serial number. You might be able to get another battery free or cheap

$20. Pull up youtube on your computer while you do it. Very easy, I've done it a couple of times on iphones and macbook airs.

I have a 6s and even with 92% health, my battery only lasts for about 1 hour of use. I have to keep it in low power mode if I’m going to be away from a charger for any length of time.
