Is 9% wear level normal for a 6 month old iPad?

    According to the Battery Life app, my iPad Pro 10.5 is already at 9% wear level. I feel like this is too much for this new of an iPad. I remember my Air being 11% at 3 and a half years old.

    Depends on the cycles. It might stay at 9% wear for two years now that its down. My 1'st gen iPad pro had around 250 cycles with 11% wear in about three months when i got the 2'nd gen as a present.

    The apps don’t show correct battery data since iOS 10.

    Not entirely correct.

    Post iOS 10 you can’t see detailed information like voltage or actual battery charge. The battery life apps still show the correct wear.

    The battery wear level it should be tested with the device cold, in the morning for example

    I bought an iPad 2017 last April when it launched and coconut battery shows 10% wear for me.

    Depends on the day, but usually I live all over.
    I just never check, (saves me non-needed stress) cause the software always says things are “this or that” but like Geekbench and other software tests, they aren’t actually always accurate.
    If my iPad ever has issues I’ll just get a new one.
    *knock on wood but my 7-year old iPad 1, still works great.

    9% wear in 6 months for most usage is definitely extreme.

    My questions would be about how the device is being used, the temperature, how many charge cycles and how deep is it discharged?

    For instance, a guy who leaves his new iPad in a hot car everyday at his job site is NOT going to have a good time. He'll definitely find battery life negatively impacted sooner rather than later.

    So how are you using your iPad— temp conditions, charge cycles, deep discharging, etc.?

    Ditto. My 10.5 Pro lost 6% of its overall battery health in the first couple weeks.

    No, they actually don't. They only do a rough estimate based on when the device was activated. The only way you can get the absolute value is through CoconutBattery on a Mac or with Apple diagnostics software.

    Oh, didn’t see people replied to this! For some reason it didn’t give me any notifications.

    Ah, I think I heard about that. Might be it.
    True. I’m just making sure I don’t have a failing battery. My friends iPad Air 2 dies really fast for example (4 hours).

    90% of the time I keep it in the house, so around 75°F , charging cycles probably around 100 at this point, and I usually charge it when it gets 20-50%.

    I probably have nothing to worry about unless I’m seeing less than 10 hours normally.

    I have ipad 2017 about 6 months old and its showing 9% battery wear on the battery life app, ios 10. I also have an ipad mini 1st gen with 1400 cycles and only has 14% wear.

    My iPad 2017 also has 9% wear after using about six months. Seemed kinda a lot but I use it daily.

    Okay, it wasn't just me seeing this decline then (iPP 2nd gen 12.9)...last I checked 3% since launch day. Like @Kal-037, I will ignore it going forward though.

    I use my both of my iPad Pro roughly in equal amounts, yet my 10.5” shows a 9% loss of battery charge and my 12.9” is showing 0% loss. Impressive for my 12.9 and worrying me a bit about my 10.5.

    I have noticed my iPad battery has gone from 9% to 14% to 10% in less than three days so I am assuming that coconut battery is not 100% accurate but maybe more of a barometer and not an exact science. I honestly don’t really care as the iPad works great and was a good deal. I say just enjoy it :)

    Anything other than the upcoming iOS 11 battery health feature should just be ignored imo.

    How are you determining this percentage of wear?
