Are you an unhappy owner of an iOS device that keeps shutting down (with sufficient battery remaining) randomly even when you haven’t manually shut it down? Well, you do not have to visit the Apple store, you can try to get rid of this issue on your own. The problem could be with high-intensity apps or depleted battery performance. Here are a few ways to stop your iPhone, iPad, or iPod from shutting down unexpectedly:
Solution 1: Update the iOS
In the older iOS versions, if any high-intensity application such as a photo filter all of a sudden increased the power usage, and the battery was already weak due to any reason, then the iOS device may mistakenly shut down. The new iOS update is better at battery management.
Solution 2: Force Restart
If your iPhone keeps shutting down randomly or the battery gets drained at a rapid rate, then you should try force restarting it. If you have iPhone 6s or older models, then just long press the Sleep button along with the Home button. Wait until the Apple logo appears, and then release.
If you have an iPhone 7 or more recent models, then long press the Sleep button along with the Volume Down button. Wait until the Apple logo appears on the screen, and then let go of the buttons.
Solution 3: Charge the phone
If your iOS device’s battery is draining at a quick pace, then you need to connect it to the charger and notice the battery level. If it shows that the device has no charge remaining, then the problem might be with the charger. Just hook up the iPhone or iPad with the charger and plug into any power outlet. Allow the device to charge for one hour. If it doesn’t work, then try the same with a different charger.

In the newer updates of iOS, the Battery segment in Settings contains Battery Health. Battery Health enables people to see their device’s present maximum capacity along with the peak performance capability. In order to check the health of your iPhone’s battery, follow the steps given below:
