    I check battery health every cycle with Coconut Battery.
    My new iPad Pro 10.5 lost 1.1% of health after just one cycle.
    Is it normal?

    Wouldn't trust Coconut Battery 100% as it says in the pics you posted that the 'Design Capacity' of the battery is 7966 mAh whereas from the iFixit tear down the battery is actually 8134 mAh.

    Also, just enjoy your new iPad Pro... unless you actually experience a battery issue.

    If you test it again you will get different results. These apps are not known for accuracy.

    I'm worried about the battery's health because when the courier handed me the device it was very hot just out of the box probably for the sun. (these days it's very hot here in Italy).


    I can not imagine the temperature reached in the van and if the battery could have been damaged.

    Try to relax and enjoy your new iPad. It will be just fine.

    Your battery is fine mate. The results will vary from cycle to cycle. You will even see variations when running multiple tests within the same charge cycle.

    Use it, enjoy it, and most of all......stop checking the battery health otherwise you'll drive yourself crazy! :)

    Would like someone with enough knowledge to tell me if by using "fast charging" on the new iPad pro if it will decrease the battery life/cycles in the long run

    Apple put a LOT of technology in their devices and will only allow them to charge at a rate they designed them to do.

    According to Apple it will not harm your battery. According to others it could shorten your battery life.

    Believe what you want, there is no shortage of advice on this, just watch and see.

    I would say you are safe as long as you use a Apple charger and cord.

    I don't really wanna "wait and see" on a 800$ device thank you.
    I'll wait for someone with enough knowledge on the topic to clarify if using the enabled "fast charging" will lower the life spawn/cycles in the long run :)

    LOL! Good Luck as everyone will have their own opinion. Some will say yes while others will say no.

    You will never know for sure.

    Enjoy!
