Without jailbreaking, how do I check my iPhone battery capacity and cycle count?

Not the little % that shows in the upper right of the screen, but rather (like on a MacBook) the mAh remaining on the actual battery? Charge cycle count as well. Thanks!

Batterylogger plus used to be on app store before apple decided to take it down and the dev put it up in Cydia.
So without jailbreaking I don't think it's possible.
Btw reason for Not jailbreaking?

I went into iTunes to look and there are so many battery apps that hopefully one of them will do what you want. Or someone has a quick answer here. I don't know if the battery keeps track of charge cycles or not since a charge cycle can be getting down to 75% four times. I suppose mAh could be calculated by the percentage remaining but I assume it would be a rough estimate and it would vary depending on the load on the battery.

I'd love to find this stuff out even with a jailbroken phone. I've looked but have never been able to find an app that will do it in Cydia.

Yep, there are too many of those battery apps out there. Some of them display battery cycle count, BUT it counts it from when you install the app itself - they do not rely on any internal iOS counters as many want.

I already replied about the app. It's called batterylogger plus. It counts cycles from when it was first charged and not when it was installed..

And it just does it automatically? I don;t have to turn the app on every time I charge or anything?

It keeps running in background. But cycles it counts automatically. Doesn't take any ram or battery. Perfect app tbh :-)

Like the original poster, I'm interested in getting this info but don't want to jailbreak to do so.

I wonder, is there any desktop application that can read this info from the iphone when connected via USB?

That app does offer the info about battery cycles. They even have the tutorial on their blog and it's also available in the free version. http://bit.ly/18gzB7r

Just checked my iPhone 5: 201 cycles.

iBackupBot tells me that my iPhone 5 has a design capacity of 1430 and full charge capacity of 1286. I have 169 cycles. Now I need an interpreter...what is the normal degradation of the battery? Is 1286 too low, normal, or good for how many cycles I have?

Your'e at 90% of original capacity, so I would say you're fine.
