https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/maximum-battery-capacity-dropped-2-in-3-weeks-how.2147011/My iphone xs just got down to 99% max capacity on the battery. Is this not to early for this to happen or what? How is your battery capacity doing?
Do you often wireless charge the phone or fast charge it? Do you let it running too hot that almost burns your hand?
Any battery loss is normal, mine is at 100 I have a XS Max
Just remember that battery loss isn't linear. It is not like a gas tank. It can, for 100 cycles, stay at a percentage. Use coconutBattery to find your capacity vs design capacity. https://www.coconut-flavour.com/coconutbattery/
Out of all my phones - 6+, 6s+, 8+, and now Xs MAX - most started above design capacity but my 6s+? didn't - it started at 96% and stayed there for its near 200 cycle life.
Completely normal. It may go back up, or it may go down, or it may stay where it is. Unless it gets under 80% before 300 cycles (or something like that, forget the exact figure) then you're within the normal range. Expect it to be unstable for a while too, on my MBP it varied between 105% and 98% for the first 20 charge cycles before it leveled out.
Is wireless charging worse for the battery?
People need to learn to search. This must have been discussed 20 times in the last month.
This is completely, 100% normal. It may stay at 99% for a while, it may go back up to 100%, it may go down further. Here’s the thing though: it doesn’t matter. There’s a reason why this figure was hidden for so long. It’s just a guess. As you use your phone more, it’ll get better at guessing. And unless it gets below 80% within the warranty period it doesn’t matter anyway, as they won’t replace it for free unless it does. So stop obsessing. Only check it once every month or two. If it starts getting close to 80 before the warranty is up, then worry about it. Until then, pretend it doesn’t matter and enjoy your phone.
