    Odd Circumstances

    My new eighth generation iPad came with 83% battery. I use it plugged in and it went down to 55% in a few hours. I kinda panicked! Next day I began at 100% but I was down to 65% after five hours. I was not happy but I didn’t scream or yell. The last few days I’ve begun at 100% but I’m down...
