How to check iPhone battery health?

battery, capacity, iphone

At the moment, a modern smartphone is primarily judged by two criteria: the camera and how long the battery lasts. The first moment improves from year to year, but with batteries it is problematic, especially on the iPhone.

Indeed, literally after a couple of years of use, the operating time of the device is reduced very significantly and you already need to think that you need to do something about this. This is especially felt by people who live in countries with cold winters.

Therefore, let’s figure out exactly when it is worth changing and how to check the condition of your iPhone battery. With some updates to the operating system, it is much easier than it used to be.

How to check iPhone battery status?

If you went to this material, then surely your iPhone does not hold a charge for long and you charge it at least twice a day. Or, it often turns off in the cold at the most inconvenient moment, even when the charge level is about 40%.

To understand how bad everything is and whether it is worth worrying about a replacement, you just need to carry out one of the actions, which I will now list.

Checking with built-in iOS functions

On March 29, 2018, the long-awaited iOS 11.3 update was released. Along with it came a feature that was associated with the scandal over the slowdown of old iPhones.

So if you have already installed iOS 11.3, then we do the following:

  • open Settings and scroll down until we find the Battery;
  • select the item Battery status;
  • we see the Maximum capacity field and if you have at least 60%, then you can relax for now, but already think about replacing in the near future.

Settings. Battery. Battery status. Maximum capacity

You’ve probably seen the second “Peak Performance” field as well. So, when everything is really bad with your battery, the phone will send you a notification that an understatement of performance is turned on.

This, in fact, will be the bell for replacing the battery. Thus, Apple killed all the applications that did the status check function, but they may still come in handy. Read on.

Guide-Apple

We check with the help of third-party programs (if iOS is lower than iOS 11.3 version)

Not everyone wants to upgrade from iOS 10 to their old iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 for this feature. We all know how it works and it is better to stay on an older version of the operating system.

Sooner or later, you may still need to check the battery status, and in this case, we do the following:

  • install ourselves an application like Battery Life (or something similar);
  • we open it and the state of your battery is written to you.

If everything is fine, it will simply say “Excellent” and the button will be green. Yellow, still not so bad and red. when to change.

It weighs a little and is free. If you buy a paid version, it will also show the number of charging cycles. But it’s up to you to decide.

How much battery does an iPhone have

To simplify the task of choosing a phone model, I have prepared for you indicators of all modern models. In addition, I will remember interesting facts.

I want to start with model 4, no one buys 3 or 3GS anymore. They will soon be in the museum, if some of them are not already there.

How long does the iPhone battery hold?

I will not write about each model separately. If you buy a new smartphone, then you will be enough for exactly one day of active use. Just before going to bed, you will already think about putting on exercise. It’s just that some still have 30 or 40 percent left, but you still have to bet, because tomorrow you need to use it.

You can only notice a significant increase in operating time in the PLUS versions. They have a very good battery and will last much longer from models with a smaller screen.

When you buy a used smartphone, you can prepare that in the near future you will need to change the battery. Although this factor largely depends on the owner’s past and his manner of using the smartphone.

Battery capacity iPhone 6, 6 PLUS, 6S, 6 PLUS

As soon as the screens began to grow significantly in size, the iPhone battery found itself in exactly the same situation. Energy consumption has grown and large numbers are indispensable. The development of processors for the better is becoming a big plus. After all, in addition to increasing power, Apple is trying to reduce power consumption.

  • 6: 1810 mAh;
  • 6 PLUS: 2915 mAh;
  • 6S: 1715 mAh;
  • 6S PLUS: 2750 mAh.

This is clearly noticeable in this case, when the S versions have significantly better performance at the same time, the battery capacity decreases.

Battery capacity iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, SE

Many consider the 4-inch generation to be the most successful. Apple also does not forget about this and the result of this is the release of the iPhone SE. Of course, many still use these devices, but when they start using a new generation phone, the love for 4 inches slowly evaporates.

  • 5: 1440 mAh;
  • 5S: 1560 mAh;
  • 5C: 1520 mAh;
  • SE: 1642 mAh.

The numbers have not grown significantly compared to the old 4 and 4S, because all the characteristics have not grown too globally. SE has already added, but considering its filling from 6S. this is probably not enough.

Battery capacity iPhone 4, 4S

If we recall the characteristics of these phones and combine them with the number of mAh from modern smartphones, then the phone would probably have worked for a week. The years of these smartphones were unforgettable and every owner of one of these devices remembers them only with a smile. And mind you, then we did not even think about the battery.

  • 4: 1420 mAh;
  • 4S: 1430 mAh.

As you can see, the numbers are incredibly small compared to today’s numbers. But having bought this device, you do not think too much about charging throughout the day.

Battery capacity iPhone 7, 7 PLUS

In this series, we see only significant improvements in the filling and the appearance of moisture protection, we say goodbye to the release of 3.5. By design, they just took the 6S and made it what it was originally intended to be. The camera now protrudes less roughly, and the mowing line antennas are neatly placed at the edges of smartphones. The PLUS version is still ahead of the dimensions of identical smartphones.

  • 7: 1960 mAh;
  • 7 PLUS: 2900 mAh.

The phone has grown nicely in every sense. Now the processor has 4 cores and the camera, both front and rear, has received many new features.

coconut Battery (for macOS)

In my opinion, this is the best application for determining the level of wear of the iPhone battery, which can be found on the iOS Device tab.

Here you can see the number of full charge-discharge cycles (after 500, experts recommend changing the battery), residual capacity (look at Maximum Charge) and other data.

Based on this information, I am guided about the consequences of my “bad habits” of handling the iPhone. lowered the level to 98%.

This application is also interesting for diagnosing the MacBook battery. for a year and a half of super-intensive use, I “killed” mine up to 92% of the declared capacity.

Battery Pro (for iOS)

The mobile application looks ugly and does not differ in the accuracy of measurements. It claims my iPhone battery is in perfect condition. 0.0% wear.

At the same time, it determines the residual capacity at the level of 2000/2000 mAh (remember, in general, in the iPhone 7. 1950 mAh).

In addition, there is data on the source of the charge, which is similar to the truth, determination of the operating time of the device and other additional information.

Recommend using this app only, if you don’t have a Mac at hand for more accurate tests.

How to check iPhone battery wear%. How many do you have?

After a wave of controversial opinions from readers about Eduard Sargsyan’s collection of tips on how to extend iPhone battery life, I checked the wear of my.

For 163 days after activation and 140 full charge-discharge cycles, the state of the battery of my 7 is excellent. And the capacity reaches 98% of the declared.

  • I charge my iPhone with iPad charging 95% of the time
  • I keep my smartphone connected to Mac for a couple of hours daily
  • is always I connect it to the charger for the whole night

  • I put my iPhone in Xiaomi power banks and auto-chargers (I think it’s okay here)
  • I do not follow the temperature regime from the word at all (summer and a regular beach are ahead)

iBackupBot (for Windows)

The data of this “scary” application, which I recommend to Windows users for lack of coconut Battery, does not match the previous ones.

This is strange. they generally claim that I can charge the iPhone up to 2000 mAh out of 1950 possible. But I suggest taking this as the ideal state of the battery.

Information can be accessed from the Information menu. Look at DesignCapacity is the stated capacity, FullChargeCapacity is the state of the battery today.

Eventually:

In almost half a year of intensive use, two out of three tests indicate the perfect condition of the battery of my iPhone 7, and one about a drop in capacity by 2%.

On this occasion, in order to put everything in its place, I propose a small interactive: let’s all together check the iPhone batteries and tell about their wear and tear and our “bad habits” in the comments.

Thus, we will decide once and for all whether it makes sense to charge your smartphone with care. Or you can just use it and have fun.

UPD: There is a possibility that the software used in the article does not have access to information about the iPhone 7 / Plus battery.

How to check battery capacity on iPhone and iPad

Very often, Apple technology users are faced with the problem of the autonomy of their i-devices. In this article, I will show you how you can check the battery on an iPhone or iPad. How to check the number of charge / discharge cycles of the battery of Apple devices. And how to tell if your iPhone battery is dead. That being said, you don’t need JailBreak.

In order to check the capacity of your iPhone battery, some recommend installing a program on your phone that requires JailBreak. Our way works without JaiBreak’a. Well, let’s get started.

Before checking the battery status of your device, make sure you read the article on saving iPhone and iPad battery in the article How to save the battery power of iPhone and iPad.

In order to check the battery on your iPhone or iPad, you only need a computer, iPhone / iPad and a cable from the device and the iBackupBot program. (download iBackupBot)

Next, install the program, connect the phone, wait while the program initializes your iPhone / iPad. When this happens, select the phone in the list of devices and you will see the following screen and click on Information:

After that, you will be presented with all the information on your battery, as well as other useful information:

I will give a decoding of some of the names of values:

  • CycleCount. the number of cycles (discharge-full charge);
  • DesignCapacity. factory size of the battery (battery size declared by the manufacturer);
  • FullChargeCapacity. the amount of full charge (the amount of the battery, when fully charged to date);
  • Status. status (as I understand it, is the battery working);
  • BatteryCurrentCapacity. current battery level.

In this way, you can check the battery status of your iPhone / iPad. If the full charge volume (FullChargeCapacity) is much less than the factory volume (DesignCapacity), then most likely you need to replace the battery. I got these results by checking the iPhone 4S battery that has been working since 2012, you can see this by the number of cycles (CycleCount), and nevertheless, the current battery volume is 90% of the factory one (1300/1430), which is an absolute norm.

If the program indicates the health of your device’s battery, then you should read the instructions on how to save the iPhone and iPad battery in the article How to keep the iPhone and iPad battery charged.

UPD2: I ran into a completely new device the other day and checked its battery for the sake of interest. I decided to share this information with you and show a screenshot of a completely new battery:

If your ratio is less than 70-60%, then this already indicates the old age of the battery and it should be replaced. And in the case of a rapid decrease in this ratio, it indicates a complete malfunction of the battery (if there is a constant drop in the FullChargeCapacity volume).

UPD: in the comments they began to write so much that the version of the program is not the same, I am not a cake, there is no link, the phone is not visible, and in general the interface is different that I was not too lazy to download the latest version of the program (5.5.3) and post even more screenshots for the people.

I hope this will save readers from the difficulties of checking the iPhone and iPad battery, and will lead to even more likes and reposts of this page and comments of thanks.

Reasons for wear and recommendations for maintaining battery capacity

In addition to rapidly discharging, battery wear is characterized by the iPhone shutting down in low ambient temperatures. Turning off the smartphone in the cold indicates a critical state of the battery and the need to replace it.

Values ​​below 80% are considered to be a poor indicator of current capacity relative to the capacity of a new battery. You can find out the exact number not only using iOS tools, but also using third-party tools, such as the iBackupBot utility.

Lithium-ion batteries do not last forever. over time, like any other rechargeable power source, they lose their capacity. The battery life of the batteries used in modern iPhones averages 800-1000 full discharge cycles, but after the first 500 cycles, the battery efficiency of the iPhone decreases by 15-20% from the initial value.

The decrease in the maximum capacity of the battery occurs not only under the influence of time, but also due to non-observance of the operating rules. For example, due to the large number of full charges and discharges to zero, or due to the use of the device at extremely low and high temperatures.

To ensure that your smartphone battery lasts as long as possible, it is recommended that you use the original charger and Lightning cable, do not fully charge or discharge your iPhone, and do not expose your device to very low or high temperatures. Apple believes the optimal ambient temperature for iPhone is 0 ° C to 35 ° C, ideal is 16 ° C to 22 ° C.

Diagnostics of the battery status of iPhone, iPad or iPod touch by means of the system

Apple developers have implemented a tool for diagnosing the battery health of the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This feature is available on iPhone 6 and later models running iOS 11.3 or later. To assess the wear and tear of the battery and find out if it needs to be replaced, go to “Settings”, go to the “Battery” section and select “Battery status”.

The “Maximum capacity” column will show the value in percent. This indicator is the ratio of the current capacity to the capacity of the new battery.

Also, all Apple smartphones are equipped with a performance management system. It dynamically adjusts the maximum power of the device to avoid unplanned shutdowns. The function is automatically activated after the first unexpected shutdown of iPhone, the battery capacity of which is no longer sufficient for maximum device performance.

If necessary, the function can be disabled by clicking on the “Disable” button and selecting the “Disable” option.

How to check iPhone or iPad battery wear

If you notice that your iPhone is running low on battery power quickly, this is a sure sign that the battery has deteriorated and should be replaced. It’s easy to make sure of this. just look at the degree of battery wear in the system settings.

How to check battery wear on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using a computer app

The following tool for diagnosing iPhone battery health comes in the form of a PC utility. You can download the installation file of the program from the official website. Two versions of the program are available: for Mac OS and Windows.

IBackupBot is designed primarily for backing up iPhone data. But you can also use it to manage installed applications and contacts, view media files stored in the device’s memory and diagnose the status of the iPhone battery.

Since the iBackupBot utility syncs data from iTunes, it requires an Apple branded media player on your computer, the installation file of which can be downloaded from Apple.com.

After installing both programs, you need to connect your iPhone to your PC using a Lightning to USB cable and give your computer access to the data on the device. When the prompt “Trust this computer?” Appears on the smartphone screen you need to select the “Trust” option and, if necessary, enter the password-code, thereby confirming the access permission.

Then you should launch the iBackupBot program and click on the device name indicated in the “Devices” side menu. On the page that opens, you need to select the “Information” item, after which a window will pop up with additional information about the smartphone.

In the “Battery” section, information about the iPhone battery will be displayed, among which 3 points are of interest:

  • CycleCount. the number of recharge cycles performed;
  • DesignCapacity. initial battery capacity, it is also the capacity of a new original battery (measured in mAh);
  • FullChargeCapacity. current battery capacity (measured in mAh).

If your iPhone has more than 1,000 recharge cycles and the current battery capacity is very different from the original value, it is recommended that you replace the phone battery with a new one.

Home / How To / How to Check iPhone or iPad Battery Wear

IPhone Standard Tools

IOS 12 introduces a new feature in testing that allows you to see the current state of the battery.

  • Go to “Battery Status”.
  • In the menu that opens, you will see the “Maximum capacity” column, which indicates the state of the phone’s battery. In case you see a reading of 100%, the battery has the maximum capacity. Over time, this indicator will decline. For example, in our example, it is 81%. this means that over time, the capacity has decreased by 19%, therefore, the device has to be charged a little more often. If this indicator drops to 60% and below, it is strongly recommended to replace the phone battery.
  • Checking iPhone battery wear

    To make your smartphone battery last longer, you need to follow simple guidelines that will significantly reduce wear and tear and extend the lifespan. And you can find out how rationally use the old battery in the iPhone in two ways: using standard iPhone tools or using a computer program.

    iBackupBot

    IBackupBot is a special iTunes add-on that allows you to manage iPhone files. Of the additional capabilities of this tool, the section for viewing the status of the iPhone battery should be noted.

    Please note that iTunes must be installed on your computer for iBackupBot to work.

    • Download the iBackupBot program from the developer’s official website and install it on your computer.
    • Connect iPhone to computer with USB cable and then launch iBackupBot. The smartphone menu will be displayed in the left part of the window, in which you should select the “iPhone” item. A window with information about the phone will appear on the right. To get information about the battery status, click on the “Information” button.
  • A new window will appear on the screen, in the upper part of which we are interested in the “Battery” block. It contains the following indicators:
  • CycleCount. This indicator means the number of complete charging cycles of the smartphone;
  • DesignCapacity. Initial battery capacity;
  • FullChargeCapacity. Actual battery capacity based on wear.
  • Thus, if the indicators “DesignCapacity” and “FullChargeCapacity” are close in value, the smartphone’s battery is normal. But if these numbers are very different, you should think about replacing the battery with a new one.

    Any of the two methods given in the article will give you comprehensive information about the condition of your battery.

    Checking Battery Wear Using iOS Apps

    For example, you can use the Battery Life app. After launching this application, you will see the percentage of wear on your battery, as estimated by the application. In the screenshot below, that’s 87 percent.

    If you wish, you can see more detailed information about the battery of your iPhone. To do this, click on the button in the upper left corner of the screen and go to the “Raw Data” section.

    Here you will see two options: Capacity and Battery Charge. The Battery Charge setting is just the current charge level of your iPhone, it’s not interesting. But the “Capacity” parameter is more interesting. It shows the current capacity of your battery (in the screenshot it is 2400 mAh) and the initial capacity of your battery (in the screenshot it is 2750 mAh).

    It is the difference between these values ​​that is calculated as a percentage. The greater the difference between the current and the original capacity, the worse the battery condition.

    Battery Check Using iBackupBot Windows Program

    If you would like to know more about your iPhone’s battery wear and tear, you can use desktop PC software. There is a program for the Windows operating system called iBackupBot. It is paid and costs 35 dollars, but during the first 7 days you can use it for free.

    In order to check the level of battery wear using iBackupBot, start it on your computer and connect the iPhone using a cable. After that, you need to wait a little while the program detects the device and creates its profile. When the device is detected, pay attention to the left side of the window and select your iPhone here.

    Then open the section “Information”.

    As a result, you will be presented with information about the level of wear on the battery of your iPhone. There will be many parameters here, the most important of which we will consider separately.

    • CycleCount. the number of charging and discharging cycles of the battery;
    • DesignCapacity. Initial battery capacity;
    • FullChargeCapacity Current battery capacity.

    The number of charging and discharging cycles of the battery is another very important parameter that speaks about the deterioration of the battery. The more cycles the battery has passed, the worse its condition. If your battery has more than 500 cycles, then it’s time to think about replacing it.

    How to check battery wear level on iPhone

    IPhone settings can be used to find out the battery life and which apps are draining the device’s battery the most. But, in the settings there is no information about the state of the iPhone battery and what level of wear it has.

    Fortunately, this information can be obtained using third-party applications and programs. In this post, we are going to show you how to check battery wear on iPhone using iOS apps and programs for Windows and macOS. Information will be relevant for all iPhone models, iPhone including 4, 4s, 5, 5s, se, 6, 6s, 7, 8 and iPhone X.

    Checking the battery using macOS CoconutBattery

    If you have a macOS computer, you can check battery wear using the CoconutBattery program. The main purpose of this program is to view information about the MacBook battery, but it can also provide information about connected iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, etc.).

    In order to use this method of checking the battery, simply connect the iPhone to your computer, run the CoconutBattery program and go to the “iOS Device” section.

    As a result, you will see a screen with information about the iPhone battery. This will show the current battery level (Current Charge), maximum battery capacity (Full Charge Capacity), initial battery capacity (Design capacity), the number of battery charging cycles (Cycle Count), and other parameters.

    As you can see, the amount of information here is almost the same as in the iBackupBot program.

    How to find out the real (at the moment) battery capacity in iPhone and iPad

    Greetings! There can be a variety of reasons why you need to check how much battery capacity is left on your iPhone or iPad. A similar need may arise out of simple curiosity: for example, I wondered. do I need to go to change the battery of my old iPhone 5S? Or is she not so bad yet?

    READ  How to take a video with emoji on iPhone

    Also, such a procedure is of great importance when buying a used device. After all, the seller can simply deceive. to say that the battery holds exactly as much as it should. And even show usage statistics (you can easily wind it up), but in fact, half of the capacity has already been lost there. How to find out the truth about the state of the battery. is it bad or not? Nobody will wait a few hours to check! There are easier and faster ways. let’s talk about them, let’s go!

    Important note. We get all data about the battery for free, without jailbreaking the device and other jailbreak. Cool? Not that word!

    How to check the battery life of an iPhone or iPad using a computer?

    There are many programs that can give us all the information we need about the battery. These are the famous iTools, iFunBox and many others. However, they are heaped up with various functions (sometimes very unnecessary), and we only need battery statistics! Therefore, in this case, I advise you to use iBackupBot. the desired function is also not the main one in it, however, the minimum size of the program and a simple interface speaks in its favor.

    • Install and run the program.
    • We connect the phone to the computer. To connect correctly, you need to unlock your iPhone or iPad (if a password is set on the screen, then enter it) and in the dialog box that appears, click “Trust this computer”.
    • In the lower left corner we see the name of the device, click on it, then. information.
    • In the window that opens, we immediately see all the information about the battery.

    Since all the inscriptions are in English, I will give a small decryption of the data obtained:

    • CycleCount. the number of complete recharges of the battery.
    • DesignCapacity. the capacity that the new gadget originally had.
    • FullChargeCapacity. current capacity.
    • Status: Success. general characteristics of the battery at the moment.

    As you can see, my iPhone 5S’s capacity dropped by only 150 mAh in 2.5 years, and this is a very good result! In fact, it is almost new. How did you manage to achieve such indicators? I just know how to properly charge my iPhones and iPads, try it too. there is nothing complicated there.

    Apps that will tell you everything about the battery status in an iPhone or iPad

    Unfortunately, no one is safe from the situation when a computer is not at hand, and it is necessary to check the battery life of an iOS device here and now. Various applications from the App Store can help us with this. The best part is that you do not need to jailbreak the device and install a jailbreak. everything happens without it.

    At the time of writing this article, a huge number of programs (about 15-20) have been in one way or another related to the battery on my iPhone. And only in one of them all data (charge cycles, actual capacity, etc.) were shown for free, immediately after installation and without any additional purchases.

    Meet Battery Life. App Store download link. Install and run. Click in the upper left corner. the settings open, we are interested in the menu item. Raw Data. And we can clearly see all the information (also displayed in real time!).

    • Battery Charge. the indicator means how much the battery is currently charged and how much it can charge as much as possible.
    • Capacity. current \ standard battery capacity.
    • Cycles. number of recharge cycles.

    The attentive reader will notice that the data for my device is slightly different for different checks (using the computer and the application). How so?!

    Firstly, this difference is really small. an error of 3-5%. And secondly, this is completely normal. since different programs use different algorithms. And besides, the battery of my iPhone 5S works for a long time (almost 2.5 years) and, as it seems to me, it is impossible to accurately analyze its use over such a long period of time.

    Total: the check can be carried out by any option presented in the article. the general “picture” of the battery life of your iPhone (iPad) will be immediately clear. To get the most plausible values ​​- use both methods, and choose the average of what you get.

    Critical number of cycles. then the battery can no longer cope

    To deal with this issue, we decided not to take any official or not strong data from the network. And we turned to several repair shops that face this problem almost daily.

    Fortunately, they all saw us as a potential client and did not refuse expert information. Most of those surveyed (in total, we contacted ten unofficial service centers) noted 500 cycles for iPhone, iPad and MacBook before 2009, as well as 1000 cycles for MacBook after 2009 as official critical indicators.

    There is no escape. after 500 recharging cycles, the iPhone battery needs change.

    Of course, after these values, you can use the device further, but at this level, the actual battery capacity reaches almost 80% of the declared one and is rapidly decreasing.

    However, there may be exceptions to this rule. So, for example, a battery can behave quite normally even after 1500 cycles, and sometimes it “dies” after 40. In the latter case, this is probably due to moisture entering the case or voltage drops, which the built-in protection could not cope with.

    Checking iPhone or iPad Battery with iBackupBot for Windows

    Let’s be honest, iBackupBot is a horrible unintuitive utility that would never be in this collection if the coconutBattery developers adapted their solution for Windows.

    Nevertheless, there is all the functionality of interest to us, which is located in the Information menu. the line CycleCount.

    When to change your iPhone, iPad or MacBook battery

    We deal with the issue and give the necessary general advice.

    Almost everyone who has used the same iPhone, iPad, MacBook, or any other mobile device for more than two years has faced the problem of quickly draining their battery. If right after the purchase the device confidently lived up to the night, after prolonged use it barely lasts until the evening.

    So it happened with my girlfriend’s iPhone 5s. And this is not surprising. After each charging and discharging, the battery capacity inevitably drops, and it will be possible to reanimate the iPhone, iPad or Mac to a new state only by replacing the battery.

    “Frosty” iPhone and iPad test. especially relevant in winter

    If the iPhone or iPad turns off after 10-15 minutes spent in the cold, its battery definitely needs change. A normal “live” battery should behave normally.

    Nevertheless, it is not worth abusing mobile devices in the cold, because there is nothing useful in such stressful situations. over, the same MacBooks are generally very poorly tolerant of frost, so you don’t need to work with them outdoors in winter.

    And how much do you have? It’s time to change or you can endure?

    There is an extraordinary idea. Let’s have a real competition? We share “numbers” in the comments!

    Flash mob. the owner of the iPhone with the highest number of charge cycles will receive the respect of the community.

    Forget Myths. General Tips for Charging Your iPhone, iPad or MacBook Battery

    Myth 1. iPhone, iPad or MacBook batteries need a “workout”. several full charge-discharge cycles to increase capacity.

    No, they use Li-ion technology and do not require such calibration.

    Myth 2. Long-term charging will shorten the battery life. for example, leaving the device plugged in overnight.

    There is nothing to worry about, a dedicated controller will cut off the power supply when the battery is fully charged. at least if you are using a quality adapter.

    Myth 3. You need to connect the charging as rarely as possible. then all the same cycles will be less.

    One cycle is charging the battery from 0 to 100%. And charging the device from 50 to 100% twice is not two cycles, but one. However, frequent connection and disconnection of the device from the power still harms its battery.

    Myth 4. iPad power supplies harm iPhone.

    IPad power supplies don’t harm iPhone. We will not go into details, but the specialists with whom we talked in the framework of this material gave the go-ahead. over, they clarified that more powerful power supplies from MacBook Pro do not harm the same MacBook Air. the main thing is that they are of the highest quality possible. It is better not to save on this.

    Myth 5. Closing programs from multitasking will increase battery life.

    No, and stop doing it all the time.

    Myth 6. Wireless interfaces drain the battery a lot.

    As it turned out, they are even too undemanding to energy resources. the most gluttonous element of the device is its screen.

    Myth 7. There are high-capacity batteries.

    When charging an iPhone, iPad or Mac, you need to use either original power supplies or analogs of the highest quality. In any case, they should have protection against voltage surges, which budget options cannot boast of.

    The same applies to external batteries or car chargers. power surges, which entail expensive repairs, in this case are not uncommon.

    But with Lightning to USB cables, everything is easier. In the worst case, the device simply won’t charge or sync.

    On older MacBook Pro Unibody and Air (2008-2012) repair shops sometimes run into battery controller errors. You can still get rid of them with the help of the programmer, but not for long. On 2012 models it is much more difficult to “fit” into the battery, such actions will not bring any special results.

    IPhone, iPad and MacBook Battery Test via coconutBattery for OS X

    There is absolutely nothing complicated in using coconutBattery. We need the first and last tabs of the program. they indicate the number of charge-discharge cycles (Loadcycles) of the MacBook and iPhone or iPad, respectively.

    In my case, that’s 91 cycles for my personal MacBook Pro 13 ” and 284 for the iPhone 6, which temporarily replaces my iPhone 6s. With such a rhythm of use, it is not necessary to mentally prepare for battery replacement very and soon.

    By the way, my girlfriend’s iPhone 5s, which was the reason for this article, has almost 800 recharge cycles. the battery needs to be changed as soon as possible.

    Fans of the Apple ecosystem can safely recommend the coconutBattery program as a universal solution for both computers and mobile devices.
