How to Check Your IPhone’s Battery Life

Now that Apple has admitted that low batteries are slowing down your iPhone, you’re probably wondering if your battery is losing its ability to hold a charge (and should you replace it). There are several ways to do this: using an app, or by waiting a few weeks for Apple to advise that it will provide customers with more information about their batteries. In the meantime, are you still curious? Here’s what to do.

Check your battery using the app

You can download several diagnostic applications available in the App Store to learn more about the quality of your iPhone’s battery. If you want to study in detail how your battery performs under stress, you can download an app like Geekbench 4 , a diagnostic tool that will offer detailed information on your iPhone’s speed, battery life, and processing power. You can also use it to check if your iPhone is affected by Apple’s speed throttling.

For a quick glance at the battery and make sure it’s not completely removed, use an app like Victor Robinson’s Battery Life. This is a simple app that tells you how much capacity you have left on your battery. If you have an older iPhone, you will see a decrease in overall battery capacity when you visit the Raw Data page.

Get a discounted battery from Apple

Since Apple admitted to slowing down older iPhones due to dead batteries , the company offered a discount on battery replacements after it classified them as consumable items. It will also update iOS 11 itself to include more details on your battery. Instead of the usual $ 79 no-warranty battery replacement fee, you can get a replacement from Apple for $ 29 starting in late January 2018. The company will release more details on the process “shortly,” according to a press release .

If you have a bad battery, you can always get it replaced at the Apple Store. You can also take it to a smartphone repair shop like uBreakiFix , although you’ll pay roughly $ 69.99, which seems a little steep compared to the alternative.
