3 Scenarios Which Prove That You Need An iPhone Battery Replacement
iPhone has always been a favourite of the masses but the one complaint every iPhone owner has is that of the device’s poor battery life. With time, the iPhone’s battery becomes weaker to a point where one may need to charge it even 5 times in a day! If you are someone who is always on the phone (like most netizens of the world), the battery issues could become a serious deterrent in your work.
You need to have a fully charged portable charger along with you all the time and you should also reduce the use of external apps related to social media, camera, music app, Bluetooth etc. Though the newer iPhone versions seem to have better battery health, the older versions, be it the iPhone 6 or iPhone 7, had complaints of poor battery life and fast deteriorating battery health.
Here are a few ways to find out if you need an iPhone battery replacement.
#1 Visit an Apple outlet
The old way is the gold way. Walk into an Apple store with your device to run a diagnostic check. This gives them and, in turn, you, a complete and accurate status report of what is going on with your iPhone battery and the issues it is facing. This method is certainly time-taking and getting an appointment at your convenient time and store may not always be possible.
#2 Check battery health via Apps
There are numerous apps in the App Store that you can use to check the details about your battery life. Some common ones are:
a). coconutBattery – Go more in-depth about the status of your iOS device’s battery with the free coconutBattery App. Typically used for Macs, this app can also give you the details about the battery health of your other iOS devices.
Launch the app and plug in your iPhone via the lightning cable for coconutBattery to show you useful details about your device like its full charge capacity, its design capacity, cycle count, and more.
Limitation(s) – Accurate information is available only for devices that have not been restored.
b). Battery Life – This free app lets you see a detailed graph for your iPhone’s battery health. Go to ‘Battery Life’ section of the app, tap on ‘details’ to know the details of your iPhone battery. Expect a giant graph display on the front page, showing the battery wear level.
Wear level is the battery’s capacity to hold a charge after a few months or years of usage as compared to its battery capacity when brand new.
The below graph shows an iPhone X with a battery capacity of 2,716 milliamps per hour (mAh), meaning it still has that full capacity according to the Battery Life app. However, the iPhone 6s Plus’ graph shows only 84% or 2300 mAh capacity, as compared to its original 2725 mAh capacity when brand new.
Limitation(s) – The app constantly pops up a lot of annoying ads.
#3 Quick Health Checkup Via iPhone’s settings
There is no denying that the quickest and easiest way to determine the battery health of your iPhone is by going directly to your Settings. Choose “Battery” on your device under the settings menu. There will be no specific details listed for you to exactly understand any underlying problem, but if you don’t see anything it kind of means that your battery is working fine.
You may also see a notification on the top that will indicate that it’s time for a battery service/replacement (refer to the image below).
Limitation(s) – Does not give you details of your battery health.
