    With the iPhone XS battery deterioration in the initial cycles is very common. Almost guaranteed. Chances are it won’t deteriorate too much this quickly after the first 1-2%.

    Results may vary depending on method used in testing. My Coconut readings were worse than those shown in an actual Apple Store testing.

    Nothing. Your battery is normal.

    Just use your phone and enjoy it. Stop worrying about it.

    Yes. Imagine if people obsessed over cars like they do over computers...

    "I drove 10,000 miles and my tire tread wore 3/64ths of an inch. Is this normal?"

    "During a 2 mile drive to the grocery store, my coolant temperature reached 95C after just ten minutes. Is it overheating?"

    "My radiator fan runs while idling. How can I stop this?"

    "I received my new car two weeks ago and already the driver side door has microscratches. The dealer refuses to replace the car. Should I sue?"

    I LOVE this post!

    OP, battery health is an estimate. You can obsess over it and ultimately be miserable, or don't even bother looking at it until you actually start to notice that your battery isn't meeting your needs, which will likely be years from now.

    Battery health is not just about the number of cycles. If your phone gets too hot (for whatever reason), it can and will slowly kill your battery life going forward. It’s not unusual for battery health to drop 1% if the phone overheats.

    For example, if you’re taking many photos in direct sunlight on a tropical island, your iPhone can get very hot. Do that once or twice and it will take a percent off your battery health. Yes, even a brand new iPhone. Ask me how I know. Doh!

    You're using it wrong.
