iPhone models have a battery health feature that gives you a clear idea of how battery capacity is depleting over time, as well as tools to optimize battery health and slow down the aging process. While this is a fair indicator of battery age, you can also assess the health of your iPhone’s battery by checking its charge cycle, taking a look at the logs. A battery cycle count is essentially the number of times the battery has been completely drained and then fully recharged again.
The one-cycle count is complete only when the iPhone completely drains 100 percent of the battery. Therefore, even if you charge the iPhone at half battery drain, a cycle will only complete when the iPhone drains its charge completely.
How to check iPhone battery charge cycle, count
Like all batteries iPhone, Batteries are also consumable components that wear out over time. If the battery becomes too weak, users may notice reduced battery life and slow iPhone performance. According to Apple, a typical battery is designed to retain up to 80 percent of its original capacity at 500 complete charge cycles when operating under normal conditions. To check whether it has reached this milestone or not, users can follow the steps mentioned below. The battery log can only be accessed if the user has enabled analysis sharing.
