    The iPhone X hasn't even been out 20 months.

    My XS that I got on launch day is sitting at a cool 96%. I use it pretty heavily every day, charge it whenever I want via wireless or type-c, and also use the smart battery case.

    I've had my Max since Black Friday and haven't even cared to check. It works just fine that's all I care about.

    My Xs that I purchased on launch day is at 97%. Not that I check it everyday since it still lasts me a full day. Although it's usually plugged in my car for CarPlay on my way home work.

    I win

    3.1 year old iPhone 6+ that's used almost continuously every day. Original battery. 1107 charge cycles. Charge level almost always kept between 40 & 80 percent. iOS 9.3.5. It's been charged up to 100% maybe once every 4 months. Mostly use 5 watt charger, but occasionally use iPad 12 watt charger.
    My Lightning charge port is getting worn out. Not always making reliable connection with a new cable. Sometimes app shows battery health drop to 96%. Kinda fluctuates. I don't know if it's all that accurate)

    Mines clearly taken a bit of a battering compared to yours. I’ve got Apple Care but I doubt I’m it’s current state they would replace it.

    Just spoke with an Apple Rep. they conducted remote diagnostics and my phone has done 595 cycles and apparently reducing 15% in 19 months with this many cycles is to be expected.

    I expressed concern that my Apple Care is due to expire in November and I would like to have the battery replaced before its expiry. I’ve been advised if it drops significantly in the coming months I can get back in contact to discuss a warranty replacement battery.

    I’ve been lucky with Apple batteries. My 6S showed 92% after 3+ years and the X is on track to perform similarly. Knock on wood....

    It seems the battery health is wonky, just like how Apple shows your current charge level. Notice how it stays at 100% for a long time? It’s been shown that 100% on the phone is anywhere from 100% all the way down to something like 96%.

    I have noticed people who say their phone showed 100% health and then started going down pretty quickly. It’s not linear like a gas tank reading. Not only that, but a lot of batteries come from the factory at over 100% of their indicated mah level. Some batteries even come from the factory at below 100%. Those are the ones that quickly show 98 or 97% health, but then they level out.

    I’m a huge battery rube, but I don’t ever even look at my health anymore. I put zero stock into it. If a bad battery meant the phone was worthless, then I’d go back to my healthy charging habits. As it is, I don’t even think about it except when I read posts like this.

    I kinda have a similar experience. Like you I try to keep it between 50% and 80% and (almost) 8 months after I bought it, my XR battery is still “new”.

    I never charge it wirelessly and I mostly use the 12 W charger although I sometimes use the 18 W iPad Pro charger.

    It looks like “the batteryuniversity” extensive investigation work has not been in vain :)

    I bought my XS Max on October 29th. It's still at 100%. I only charge it when it gets down to 5% and then all the way up to 100%. I've done this with every phone I've ever owned and have never had to replace a battery. Screencaps from both below.
    Coconut battery also shows 100%. 8148BD5C-ECDB-4890-B3AD-17F2BE02C9D3.png C89D8FD0-1EA5-4B72-AFC3-7D561FE0AF0D.png

    Coconut and iOS are the only 2 that are legit. No app has access to the data it needs to give you a realistic answer. I believe in previous iOS (10?) the apps had the access they needed, but not anymore.

    With 95 cycles only, no wonder the battery health still stands at 100%.

    Nevertheless, I don’t think it will remain that high for so long as you wait until your mobile phone is almost completely down to top it up. Li-thium batteries don’t like this at all....
