How to Check Your iPhone Battery Health

Health should be always your first priority, I’m not talking about your health here but your phone’s battery health. Apple devices are well reputed in the term of battery life, based on my experience. The company has recently introduced a feature that keeps your iPhone away from shutting down. This power management system also allows you to check your iPhone battery life. Today, I’m gonna teach you how to do this.

Before getting into the deep, keep in mind that iPhone battery health is much different from its battery life. Battery life is something which tells you how much time your phone/battery will last in one charge.

While iPhone battery health is a feature which tells you diminishes over time of your battery.

Methods to Check Your iPhone Battery Health:

There is no 3rd party app to check your iPhone batter health, so don’t waste your time on iTunes. If you are using the iOS version 10 or above then you can manually check the health of your iPhone. Fortunately, there are more than one methods to get the analytics of your phone’s battery health.

Just about 2 years ago, It was not even possible to check your iPhone battery health manually. The only way to check it was to bring it to the apple store near your home and tell them to do a diagnostic test on your phone. That was a costly and time-consuming task.

One thing to keep in mind is that you can’t get the iPhone battery health anywhere on the settings page. There are 4 different measurements to get it. Let’s get started with those methods.

1) Check Battery Health Using the Console App:

If you have a Mac device and want to check your iPhone batter health then you can do it using the Console app which is pre-installed on your Max device. The method is pretty simple, just follow the below steps.

  1. First of all, connect your iPhone with Mac using a cable wire and launch the Console app.
  2. Now unlock your iPhone, go to the Console app on your Mac and type batteryhealth in its search bar.
  3. That’s it!

Now you will get the brief details about your iPhone battery health on screen. When I checked my iPhone battery status, the system rated it well. You will get much more details about your device battery like capacity, power source, battery level, and etc.

2) Check Battery Settings:

This one of the easiest and fastest way to check your iPhone battery health. It doesn’t show the brief details as the above method but still, it works. First of all, go to the settings tab of your phone and then select battery. It will not show any details if your phone’s battery is working fine. But if there is something wrong with it, the following message will appear “Your iPhone battery needs to be serviced”.

3) Use CoconutBattery to Get the Details of Your iPhone Battery Health:

This method will help you know little more about the health of your iPhone battery as compared to the above 2 methods. CoconutBattery is a best and free service that can provide you many details about your iPhone battery. What you need to do right now is follow the below steps.

  1. First of all open your Mac, go to the browser and launch CoconutBattery website.
  2. Now connect your iPhone to Mac using a good cable wire. CoconutBattery will start analyzing your battery.
  3. Within few seconds, all the important details of your iPhone’s battery will appear on the screen.

This app is a bit limited. It gives the accurate information until you restore your iPhone. If your device is restored even in past then the information it is showing may not be correct.

4) Apple Support:

This one is the most recommended method if you are looking for the most accurate results. It may sound tricky and time-consuming but you have to do this if you need the complete details. What you need to do is contact Apple store near you and ask them to run the diagnostic directly on your device.

If there is no Apple store near then you can take the help of Apple’s online Support easily. If you own an iPhone then it is your legal right to ask them to run the diagnostic and analyze it.

I will recommend using this method if you are using an old iPhone because it doesn’t work properly on new devices. Recently, I wrote an article to recharge your battery within 60 seconds. Have you checked it?
