    Hi,

    I am still under my iPhone's warranty as I have previously extended it with AppleCare.

    I have tried many ways of saving the battery but it just seems to not be doing much.

    If I would like to have the battery replaced under AppleCare, how do I know if they will allow that? I know they mention about the 50% of expected performance - but how do they actually test it? And how do I know if I will be eligible before sending that in?

    Thanks!!

    They'll plug it into their computer and run a behavior scan, to see your usage, and some other statistics. They can't actually see the capacity, but rather mathematically calculate it. 50% capacity is a huge drop, and even if you were down to 60% capacity, they'd still replace it.
