    My Battery health is 99% exactly 1 month. Bought it march 2 ?

    Is this defect or something? should be 100% right?

    I don’t think 99% is anything to be overly concerned about. It’s nearly at 100%, but of course your overall usage will vary.

    I bought my 64gb 8 plus in a couple of days after the release and it has 98% capacity, not sure if that's good or bad, but there you have one more to compare with

    My 8 plus is new, bought it a few days ago. Battery 100%. I’d call Apple Support.

    Relax. Your battery % will fluctuate even when it's brand new. It's not uncommon to see the battery capacity roam between 97% and 104% straight out of the box.

    And this is why Apple didn’t have this feature before...

    My 5 month old iPhone X shows 100% battery health. It's still cool where I live so perhaps that makes a difference at this time of year. However, the battery health indicator is still in beta so it's like just an estimate anyway.

    It depends on how you charge the phone. Do you let it plugged for a very long time even when it's a 100%? Does your phone get too hot while charging? Does your phone get too hot almost everytime? The more heat the more battery wear.

    It was bad enough with people obsessing over battery percentage
    Now we have this fresh hell of battery health

    The vast majority of people will kill their batteries in 2 ways:

    Power users who go thru a lot of cycles.

    People who use their phone for GPS in their car with direct sunlight and charging. That easily puts the phone over 100F

    That's not bad. You've lost 3% in 77 cycles. Apple claims you'll be at or above 80% after 500 cycles. You're on pace to have more than 80% after 500 cycles, assuming the battery loses capacity in a linear fashion. You're losing 1% every 25 cycles right now. At your current rate, you will be at 86% in 2 years. By then you can either replace your battery or phone.

    I'm at 100, but I have way less cycles than you do. I go thru 2-3 a week.

    Bought my 8 on launch still 100% almost exclusively docked on a wireless charger at night and at my desk during the day. Only time I plug in is when traveling.
