    I have the iPhone X, I feel as if my battery is draining too quickly, is there any app to run to test the level of the battery? Or can Apple runs test over the air so I don’t need to actually go to them to check?
    And I have a screen protector on my iPhone X, if they replace the phone, do you think you can negotiate with them for a free protector?

    One step at a time. Got to determine if your battery is bad. No test you can use will convince Apple. They will only replace if THEY test and find defective.

    Most the battery apps are now not worth the trouble in downloading them.

    As far as getting a freebie screen protector . . . . maybe if the phone has to be replaced.

    What do you consider draining too quickly?

    Give us a screen shot showing your battery use.

    What do your battery stats say? You can get a pretty detailed look at what is causing the drain. They will not replace your protector.

    There are apps that you can download to see the health of the battery. I haven't had any issues with battery life so far.

    Unfortunately since about iOS 10 apps that can be installed on the device itself won't really show accurate information about battery wear. Some computer apps, like Coconut Battery are still accurate.

    I lost 2% in like 5 mins (to screenshot that and upload it to this) should I be considered or is thy normal? I can’t show battery usage and standby cuz it was only charged to 90% last night.

    Low signal, streaming music, and social media apps, you having bad battery life is not surprising.

    That is the 5 day usage.

    Just curious, How does low signal affect battery life?

    Looks like you have a good bit going on in the background. 2% really does not tell us much. Go through a day and post the stats.

    Low signal like that your phone is constantly using more power trying to connect to cell towers, had a pretty massive impact on battery life.

    It forces your phone to transmit full power to search for a signal. If you have no signal your battery can die in a few hours.
