    Hi people.

    I haven’t updated my iPhone yet. I’ve only seen on my iPad that the apps battery life and Lirum Info doesn’t show any informations about the battery health. Well the question is now if the apps only need to get updated or if apple doesn’t allow it anymore?

    Would be bad for me because i have an iFixit battery and the apple battery health feature does only work with apple batteries. Or does it work with 3rd party batteries now with iOS 12?

    Battery Apps have not been able to give real-time battery information since iOS 10. And even more was removed in iOS 11.

    The new IOS 12 battery section is filled with info I cant use and yet does NOT tell me how many hours/mins I have used the phone since last full charge.

    HELP

    Nothing will help. We are all dealing with it. Battery tab is less than helpful now.

    Intentional, they dont want us obsessing on usage times.

    Too bad it would be so hard to switch to android, this is the kind of crap that really gets me going.

    Yet they still provide times over last 24 hours and even hour by hour. Seems like they can provide "since last charge" (which they used to provide) just as well, given that with everything else they are providing the "obsessing" part doesn't quite hold up (even though I get what you are saying).

    But am I wrong or can you see a stat that tells you usage like we are talking about? I cant, can anyone? Seems like you said, they are overwhelming us with info we can use for some stuff like narrowing down an app taking power, but actual USAGE per charge is NOT there...

    Seems like that's been addressed in a number of places, including my post to which you quoted where I mentioned that they certainly could include it if they wanted to (like they did in previous iOS versions), and other threads, like https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...n-read-the-battery-app.2139643/#post-26511167

    I am aware I posted in more than one place, I was so AMAZED they did this to us, on purpose obviously, that I had to ask anyone and everyone.

    I wish a moderator here would create a stand alone, pinned thread about this that I could follow.

    You have to go on the graph and select hour by hour and manually add up your screen on and off times since your last full charge.

    Or just click on they last 10 day view and select the current day. Since I didn’t use my phone aftermidnight and unplugged at 5:40 am this is accurate for the current day. I was at work today and I have poor signal. Pretty crappy battery life on my 7 with 87% battery health.

    There isn't really much to follow, the information regarding usage and standby times since last charge (which used to be provided) isn't there in iOS 12 so far. I'm sure if that was to change in some update there would definitely be plenty of mentions of that in various places here.

    Yeah, basically some "workarounds" to get some approximation of the information that was easily provided before.

    Apple iOS devices mostly phones have alway had very short life.
    Apple will do anything to reduce the life of a phone and even more to make you continue to upgrade. Pitty even the newer devices I have iPhones one being XS is slightly slower than iPhone 7 Plus battery life is not much if at all Better. Wasted time and money. For all. Extra features 5G if you like holding a microwave oven in the palm of you hand.
