If it feels like you’re constantly charging your iPhone or are always on the lookout for an outlet to plug in, your phone’s battery health may be deteriorating. Thankfully, Apple has some built-in tools to let you know for sure if you’re imagining a quickly draining battery or if your phone really is about to die. Understanding how your battery is doing can keep you from dropping big bucks to start over with a new phone. You can make the most of what you’re working with by treating the battery right and implementing a few tricks and tips.
Here is how to look up your iPhone battery info.
- Hop over to ‘Settings’
- Open ‘Battery’. You’ll see a breakdown of when your battery was in use and which apps are using up the most juice. You can look at the past 24 hours or past 10 days
- There’s also a section called ‘Battery Health’. Click that for a quick analysis of how used-up your battery is currently
The closer to 100%, the better off you are. Lower capacity may result in fewer hours of usage between charges. Even if you have a lower than 100% capacity, you can still operate at peak performance. Under ‘Battery Health’ you’ll see if the battery is still able to work as normal or not. If the latter is the case, you might notice some of these issues with your iPhone, like; longer app launch times, slower scrolling, backlight dimming, lower speaker volume, and slower apps.
