i have a IPhone 8+ and I just checked my battery health and it’s down to 88% after 8 months is this considered normal?
A better standard is 500 cycles regardless of time...Fun fact: These batteries are rated to have 80 % after 2 years of use.
To be honest it's possible if you didn't take care of your battery at all. Still, these are only numbers. If you feel like your phone drains much quicker, you can contact Apple and see if they can fix it.
shocked? You are barely using your phone.I was shocked, my launch day (15 months old) iPhone 8 plus shows 97% battery health. I'm not a heavy user, so I usually charge it every 2-3 days when it gets to 50%. I also have never let the battery drop below 30% as I know Li-Ion batteries doesn't like to be run down low.
True, but apple wont allow those us who don’t own a Mac to see our count.A better standard is 500 cycles regardless of time...
Go into Apple Early tomorrow so they can replace your battery before the price goes up to £45
I had my battery replaced on my iPhone 7 yesterday that’s 11 months old when I got it a month ago it was 94% battery health but Wed this week it had gone down to 84% Apple ran diagnostics on it twice couldn’t tell me anything my guess bad battery or iOS 12
It's possible if you use your phone a lot.
The 7+ I got as a replacement to my old broken one from Apple in February was down to 89% after less than 10 months - but I'm on my phone all day long, and probably put 400+ cycles on it in that time. So that's fair wear.
Why? iOS 12 is great.I wish to avoid the Compulsive iOS update from 11 to 12.
Got my iPhone 8 on December 1st battery dropped to 99% already abit surprised by that not sure if its something to worry about but it hasn't dropped since
Why? iOS 12 is great.
Previous older apps compatabilityBlows my mind why anyone would wanna be on iOS 11 when iOS 12 is out.
Interesting. This 96 was on i8? I am currently at 204 cycles on an i7?Battery wear isn’t linear like a glass of water. I’ve had phones come from factory 108% to 96%. The 96% one kept its life best after 230 cycles. I wouldn’t worry about it. Use coconutBattery to find true capacity and monitor weekly over months.
