Prompted by the recent thread asking about battery life issues for the iPad Pro 10.5, I am noticing a significant pattern with the newer iPads: They don't reach Apple's battery capacity specs (1000 cycles with 80% capacity remaining). Not only that, they're kilometers away. I have seen it since the Air 2 in hundreds of numbers shared around the entire forum. I will start with my own iPad: it is an iPad Pro 9.7 running iOS 9. It has 91.2% capacity - as measured by Coconut Battery, yesterday - and it has 312 cycles. That is the same capacity my iPhone 6s shows... With 330 cycles. Battery life is great because it is on iOS 9, but that's not the point. Almost forgot: a family member's first-generation iPad Mini, 511 cycles, 81% capacity; iPad 4, 530 cycles, 77% capacity. I will also offer another example with the iPhone: my iPhone 5c has 83% capacity... And 750 cycles. Exceeding Apple's specs. To conclude, I would like to say that I know that there are a lot of factors that can and do have an impact on battery health, but I have seen a pattern - what's more, I don't think I remember anyone saying that their iPad was with 500 cycles and had 90% capacity - and I would like to have some more results. Thanks everyone.
