The iphone6 I have has been shutting off every now and then,

Customer Question

The iphone6 I have has been shutting off every now and then, not connecting to internet at home (Wi-Fi) and running out of battery very fast. The problem started when I did a software update (IOS 9.2). A friend told me to reset it to the original factory settings. Will this solve the issue or it might be that the cell phone has another issue? To reset it I will have to back-up everything but this friend told me to only back-up certain things (pictures, notes) and re-install all the apps. What should I do?

I would back up everything to itunes or the cloud and then restore it to factor default.

Then use it for a few hours to see how it reacts, if it works fine then restore from the backup.

This way you can determine if it's a hardware issue and if it's an issue with some app that you have installed.
