hello, guys! My mom's iPhone 4s is starting to have bad battery life after 4 years and 1112 cycles. Anyways, I checked the battery capacity with iBackupBot and it says it still has 1400 mAh of 1460. That's almost 100%. Is this a software bug or something? I can't believe it's so healthy. Thanks.

Wouldn't say the results are false. My 4s still had 1366 after nearly 2000 cycles.

Still does not explain why they think they are getting poor battery life.

A 4 year old phone should show some wear on the battery, more than what the app is indicating. There are physics involved and unless the phone was just sitting in a drawer for the last 3-4 years, I am betting the battery is not as good as it the app indicated.

Poor battery life could be a badly coded app (Facebook) excessive usage or just weak signal strength.
