    I downloaded coconutBattery on iMac to examine iPhone battery health, but the app crashes and wouldn't open. So I was wondering if the app only works on mobile Macs?

    Thanks in advance.

    It worked for me on my iMac. I don't use the app, but I downloaded it and it didn't crash.

    You can also download the iOS version for your iPhone.

    Where from? It doesn't come up in the App Store.

    The latest version for OS X is supposed to show battery condition for connected iOS devices, but my iPhone 3GS doesn't show. probably too old.

    It'll work on a desktop Mac but will crash if you happen to have a UPS connected to the Mac via a USB cable. The workaround is to unplug the USB cable when you run Coconut Battery.
