How to Tell When Your iPhone Battery Needs to Be Replaced
As anyone who has ever owned an iPhone can attest, battery life is always a hot topic. We all want our phones to last as long as possible between charges, but the reality is that batteries don't last forever. At some point, you're going to need to replace your iPhone battery. But how can you tell when that time has come? Keep reading to find out.
The first thing you'll want to do is check your battery's health. You can do this by going to Settings -> Battery -> Battery Health. Here, you'll see two pieces of important information: maximum capacity and peak performance capacity.
Maximum capacity is simply a measure of how much charge your battery can hold compared to when it was new. For example, if your battery is currently at 80% capacity, that means it can only hold 80% of the charge it could when it was brand new. Once your battery's maximum capacity drops below 80%, you'll start to notice a decrease in performance.
Peak performance capacity measures how well your battery is able to deliver peak performance as compared to when it was new. Apple says that " peaks are temporary and are caused by processes such as indexing, downloading emails, or installing apps." If your peak performance capacity is below 100%, you may notice that your phone starts to slow down during these types of activities.
If you see that your maximum capacity is significantly lower than it used to be or your peak performance capacity has decreased, it's probably time for a new battery.
Another thing you can do is simply keep an eye on your battery life throughout the day. If you find that you're having to charge your phone more frequently than you used to or that it's dying long before the end of the day, those are also signs that it's time for a new battery.
No one likes having to deal with a dead phone, but unfortunately, batteries don't last forever. The good news is that there are ways to tell when it's time for a replacement. By paying attention to your battery health and monitoring your usage, you can extend the life of your iPhone and enjoy trouble-free use for years to come.
