    I wonder if the battery of my iPhone 5 is broken? Or is this normal? Should I buy a new iPhone?

    how old is your iPhone? if it is an early one, it may qualify for a free replacement. Check the Apple web site. I had the battery changed in my 5 and it is much improved.

    My iPhone is about 2 years old. But i am not in the recall program. I think that you mean that?


    My phone doesn't qualify for the recall. How can I check it with Apple. My country doesn't have an Apple store.

    What app did you use to see this information??

    I'm sorry I'm not contributing to helping you with your issue, I just am really curious. All the things I have seen like this you have to jailbreak for which is not an option for me.

    i used ibackupbot the other day for the very first time . its a free program for windows and mac that gives you battery health, without jailbreaking

    i don't know what app the OP used

    as far as batteries go, i think apple recommends you consider replacing the battery once capacity is less then 80%, but ultimately its up to you if you feel that its worth the $79 us dollars it costs to get a new battery.

    if its still under warranty / applecare and your battery has less then 80% then you can get a new battery from apple for free.

    i dont trust that app, charge it to 100 % and get a second opinion from the genius bar

    You can send it into an AASP and they'll check it for you.

    if you submit a ticket / remote iOS diagnostic send and then bug apple in chat
    they will also tell you if your battery is bad. but driving to the genius bar is probably faster!

    Take it to the Apple store and see if it requires a new battery. It could also be free.

    The battery capacity at 1000 is bad .You need to buy new one and replace the old one or go to Apple Store in Brussels

    It's only free when it's under warranty or not?


    Nice, you know Belgium. But the Apple store in Brussel is not yet open.
