    I can't figure out how do do it, and when I go to the settings on my iPhone it doesn't look like the option is there.

    Thank you.

    I believe your iPhone needs to be jailbroken. Or there could be apps in the app store that do it.

    Just install iBackupBot

    To check your battery stats (charge cycles, actual capacity, etc), you can use the program iBackupBot.

    It's free to download and use (but it may nag you to pay).

    Instructions on checking battery stats can be found here:
    http://www.icopybot.com/blog/check-ipad-iphone-battery-charge-cycle-count-without-jailbreaking.htm

    Make note that this is the SAME information that you get from jailbreak apps (such as BatteryLife or BatteryInfo Lite), and it is the same information that the Genius checks with their diagnostic software at the Apple Store, so it is accurate.

    There's a setting to show battery percentage in settings - it's off by default, but it's there.

    Otherwise, you are after what's already been shared here.

    By percentage of battery I am going to assume you mean battery lifespan, not actual battery charge percent.

    ibackupbot will do all of that for you. There is a thread somewhere around with people pasting their results and discussing them.

    Are you having issues with your phone? If not, I find this is largely pointless information.

    If you are having a battery issue take it to Apple and let them diagnose the problem. And they won't be using iBackup bot to diagnose the issue. If your not having an issue the information is useless. It's just something so called enthusiasts think they need to know.

    Unfortunately some people either don't have the time or live too far away from an Apple store to make it feasible to bring a phone in on a "maybe". There are some people who don't even have an Apple store in their state or country! Before we moved, we were a 45 minute drive away from the nearest Apple. Not really a drive I would want to take to have the say "yup, you're good".

    It's probably a good thing they can run diagnostics remotely then.

    Your iPhone can reach 1538 mAh out of 1550, so basically you are near 99% of the supposed maximum capacity. Is just fine (and is brand new!)

    Very difficult to know you are a girl from your nickname a-m-k :D

    By the way, if you are looking for percentage shown on the screen there is a switch in the settings.
    To check charge cycles and battery life, you have to install iBackupBot , a program, on your Mac.

    Cycle Count: 0
