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.
See post #4To 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:
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.
By percentage of battery I am going to assume you mean battery lifespan, not actual battery charge percent.
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".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.
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!)my battery on my 5s running 7.1 as of now is
full charge capacity:1538
how would i determine what percentage the life of my battery is at of now?
Very difficult to know you are a girl from your nickname a-m-k
no harm done... I usually will use the word 'they'.Very difficult to know you are a girl from your nickname a-m-k
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.
What about my ipod touch 4th generation? It is over 2 years old an look at how strange the battery cycles are:How about my iphone 5 battry status ?? Is it ok?
Cycle count : 419
Design capacity : 1430
Fullychargecapacity : 1279
Batterycurrentcapacity : 37
Ridiculous assumption.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.
