    I wanted to know how many cycles do you have, maybe we can get to know the difference in usage between the members. My iPad 4 has 530 and my 9.7 iPad Pro has 70. I use them fairly heavily (I recently gave the iPad 4 to a family member but for all intents and purposes I used it as like 95% of the cycles were done by me.)

    How would I find out how many cycles my iPad has been through?

    I found out through coconut battery in the Mac. Might be too difficult of a question though as a Mac is needed... Maybe I didn't think that through.

    Not a problem.http://www.coconut-flavour.com/coconutbattery/

    I have a first generation iPad Mini. It is slow as heck. LOL I'm hoping the new iPad Pro (hoping for a bezel free 12.9" model) will come out soon. Then I will upgrade.

    I'm at a hotel right now so the internet is dog slow but I downloaded coconut battery right now from here. It says that my iPad Mini has 138 load cycles. This makes sense because I haven't used it too terribly much because for much of it's life it has been simply so slow. I should never have upgraded it to iOS 7+. I didn't research it enough before purchasing it either to know that the processor was old even when it was new.

    Thank you for the software reference this is a very cool program. :D

    I say exactly the same about my iPad 4. Shouldn't have updated it. Yeah 138 cycles for an iPad mini 1 isn't much. I will get to 138 on my Pro if the trend continues in about an year of use.
    I might not be too good of a reference though as I tend to be a fairly heavy user of my iPad. Those cycles start to add up.
    I like the program a lot but for some reason it doesn't work with iPod Touches. Does it work with iPods for anyone who sees this thread and uses the application?

    I have an iPad mini 2 and it says it has 182 load cycles on it. Also, have an iPad Air 2 and it says 202 load cycles. The funny thing is, I have probably had the mini 2 for about a year longer than the Air 2. Once I bought the Air 2, it has been my daily driver and I mostly only use the mini 2 if I don't have much room to fit it on the go... Or if I am going someplace that I feel has a higher risk of it getting damaged haha.

    I am holding out for Gen 2 of the 12.9" iPad Pro. Since the first day they announced it I knew I wanted one, but I always feel better holding off for gen 2 of "new" iPad designs (hence the mini 2 & Air 2 lol) :)

    Honestly I have no idea whether it's available for Windows. Maybe someone can tune in and provide the answer?

    Thanks!

    I saw that, but noticed that someone here mentioned that it was for Windows, hence got confused

    My iPad Air 2 had around 180 when I sold it after two years, with its battery at around 90% health if I remember, my iPad Pro 12.9 has 122 after 4 months of usage with 95%, I keep screen brightness up and battery has gone from 8-10 hours with the air 2 to 3-5 hours with the iPad Pro.

    I read that iBackupBot works for Windows. I haven't tried it nor read anything meaningful about it, I just know it's there. I cannot offer an explanation as to how to use it or where it is, but I read it exists.
    Maybe someone else knows? Sorry for being so unhelpful.

    How many cycles is the approximate boundary for excessive use or wear-and-tear? I don't really have much context for when one knows her laptop or ipad is reaching the end of reasonable battery life.

    (Edit: I've got 512 load cycles on the mac pro laptop 2013 and 124 on the iPad.)

    iPad Pro 9.7 256gb LTE bought at launch. Manufacture date 2016-03-21.

    Design capacity 7306mah.

    Maximum charge now 6429mah.

    So, 88% after 136 cycles. Can't say I've noticed the dip in actual usage, but those stats aren't great. My late 2013 rMBP, in contrast, is still at about 96% health after 600 cycles.

    Loadcycles:
    iPad Pro (12.9-inch) - 161 (battery charges to 10083mAh / 97.8% capacity)
    iPad Pro (9.7) - 124 (battery charges to 6841mAh / 93.6% capacity)
    iPhone 7 Plus - 238 (battery charges to 2783mAh / 96% capacity).

    So my conclusion is that I use my iPhone 7 Plus the most (which I knew) and iPad Pros about equal. However, the battery on my 12.9" is doing the best out of my iOS devices and it's the oldest (2015-11-09).
    One interesting fact (to me anyway) is that my 9.7" is a leap-year baby....manufactured on 2016-02-29.

    iPad Pro 12.9. 43 load cycles at 95.5% health. One year and 2 weeks old. Charged since month 8 with the 29W charger.

    Worrying...

    iPhone SE has 35 cycles and is at 100% health... Stark contrast.

    Maybe a heads up for the fast charger... Luckily my 12.9 will be shipping away Tuesday. iPad 2017 has 1 load cycle.

    iPod Touch not checked but showing 100% health with Battery Life by Robert Tkotzyk which is accurate but doesn't show load cycles.

    Oh and MacBook Pro, 16 cycles at 100% health. I always use it on power but cycle it occasionally.

    My iPad Mini 2 has 141 cycles and it's health is at 90.47%. That's well within Apples guidelines. This Mini is about 3.5 years old I think.

    My iPad pro has 10 cycles and it's health is supposedly at 97.7%. I bought it at the end of January. Battery Pro shows the health is 100%.

    My iPhone SE has 18 cycles on it with a health of 93.5%. Battery Pro shows it at 99%. It's all nonsense.

    I don't really think these readings are correct for Coconut battery at least.

    What's Battery Pro? If it is an iOS App then they are not correct. Apple I think removed the API to reach that kind of specific data.

    Doesn't matter. I don't believe coconut battery is correct either.

    How it does not matter? If Apple removed the API and the App is on iOS, then it cannot possibly be correct. I have read that coconut battery was actually correct, though. (Some said it matched Apple's ratings when geniuses performed battery tests, or so I've read.)

    I mean I don't really care. As for coconut battery, I don't believe it's accurate either. My less then one month old SE with 18 cycles on it has a health of 93.3%? I'm not believing that.
