    I believe the other two rounds up the numbers.

    Edit: I replied because I saw it as one of the recent threads but apparently whoever replied deleted their message and I noticed the date of the thread. Sorry.

    I'm the developer of Battery Health and so I can comment on this. Basically, iOS exposes two maximum capacity figures: The "raw" capacity as it is calculated by the gas gauge chip, and an Apple calculated Maximum Capacity value which is basically the raw value rounded up to 100mAh. CoconutBattery uses the raw value, while my app and iBackupBot use the rounded number.

    Why does that rounded value exist, you ask? Because Apple knows that the raw value is highly unstable, and so rounding up is a (rather primitive) attempt to stabilize the readings...

    Ironically, my next update was going to show the raw (unrounded) readings, and also calculate a moving average to try and give the user a stable reading they can keep track of. As you can see on the other thread I posted, it looks like Apple will not allow that release to ever see the light of day. ☹️

    Here's what that new version looks like:

    Thx echo. However 6s battery seemes bad. Our both iPhones lost 5% after 110 cycles. My old 5s has lost just 8% after 500+ cycles. How reliable is this raw value?
