Of course, the health of your battery is of great importance to the usability of your mobile phone. Here’s how to quickly check your iPhone’s battery health.
As you probably know, the quality of your battery actually degrades gradually over time; a year or two into the life of your phone and you’ll probably notice that it doesn’t last as long as it used to. Apple has introduced a feature that lets you check how strong your battery is, and here’s how you can use it to see how your iPhone’s battery is holding up.
What you will need:
- We used an iPhone 13, but this method works for iPhone 6 and all newer models as long as they run iOS 11.3 software or later
The short version
- Open the Settings app
- Scroll to Battery
- Tap Battery Health
- Now you can monitor the status of your battery
Open the Settings app
First, open the Settings app on your iPhone. You’ll find this on the home screen and it has an icon like a mechanical gear.
Scroll to Battery
In the Settings app, scroll down until you see the Battery option.
Tap Battery Health
In the Battery menu, tap Battery Health.
Now you can monitor the status of your battery
Your iPhone will now display statistics related to the health of your battery. Most importantly, you will see its maximum capacity expressed as a percentage; the higher this is, the better.
You can send your iPhone to Apple to have the battery serviced or replaced; however, unless you’ve subscribed to Apple Care+, then this service will come at a cost (even under warranty, as wear and tear on the battery from normal use is not covered). Under the terms of AppleCare+, your battery will be replaced free of charge if it has dropped below 80% of its maximum capacity.
After all, batteries just lose some capacity over time. One thing you can do to reduce the strain is to enable optimized battery charging; this feature learns from your habits to stop the battery from recharging regularly.
