    I got my iPhone X battery replaced, and boy the phone lasts much longer now on a single charge. I am glad I managed to get it done as I plan to keep this for a while. The battery on the X degraded the fastest of any iPhone I have had or seen amongst my friends in just a year.

    I noticed the same thing as well. My 7+ have 94% after 2 years and my X was at 89% at 1 year, when it was replaced on 12/21/18 after a botched battery replacement.

    My dad's iPhone 6S Plus is 3 years old and battery health is at 89%. My iPhone X was down to 88% after a year.

    Currently my launch day iPhone X is sitting at 87%. Has 495 cycles and battery life is still decent, just doesn’t hold up above 90% for long.

    It's a Mac app.

    I'm highly skeptical of that battery health feature. My 7 plus has been at 85% for the longest time, but I restored it as new and says 87% now. It feels more like 80%.

    Either way, buying a Xs tomorrow. I know the battery is worse than the 7 plus, but it charges faster, so there's that.

    If you’re using iOS 11 (iPhone 7 Plus)/12 XS battery will be way better than 7 Plus. If your 7 Plus was still on iOS 10, it might have slightly better battery than XS on iOS 12.

    I'm on iOS 12. I actually had better battery life with iOS 11, but that could just be battery degradation.

    Any iPhone that supports both iOS 11 and iOS 12 will have better battery life with iOS 11, even with a fresh battery.

    XS on iOS 12 will have at least 30-50% more battery life than a 7+ on iOS 12 even with a fresh battery.
