Check your battery health
Your iPhone battery won’t last forever. In fact, it will degrade over time due to normal wear and tear. Depending on how you use your device and how you take care of it, your battery could last a few years or just a few months. However, there are ways to prolong the life of your battery and keep it healthy.
Go to “Settings”
Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone or iPad. Scroll down and tap “Battery.” Next to “Battery Health,” tap the arrow. You might need to enter your passcode.
Click the “Start” button, then type “Settings” and press Enter.
Click battery on the left side, then click on the right side.
Check your battery health under “Battery Usage by Type.”
Check the “Battery Health” section
The “Battery Health” section will tell you if your battery is currently degrading, and by how much. If you see a message that says “Your battery is currently degraded. This iPhone has experienced an unexpected shutdown because the battery was unable to deliver the required performance. Performance management has been applied to help prevent this from happening again.” then you know your battery needs to be replaced.
Improve your battery health
Having good battery health is important for your iPhone. If you don’t have good battery health, your iPhone’s performance will suffer, and you won’t be able to use your iPhone for as long as you want. There are a few things you can do to improve your battery health.
Follow the tips in the “Battery Health” section
In the “Battery Health” section of the Settings app, you can find tips to help improve your battery health and extend its lifespan.
By default, your iPhone will optimize battery charging to help maximize your battery lifespan. You can disable this feature if you want to charge your iPhone faster.
You can also enable Low Power Mode to automatically reduce power consumption when your battery gets low. Low Power Mode temporarily disables or reduces background activities and notifications, and may also reduce other power-consuming features.
Use power-saving mode
iOS has a power-saving mode that can help improve your battery health. Power-saving mode reduces the amount of power your iPhone uses when the battery is low. To turn on power-saving mode, go to Settings > Battery. You can also enable Low Power Mode from Control Center.
Avoid using your phone in extreme temperatures
One of the main things you can do to improve your battery health is to avoid using your phone in extreme temperatures.
This means that you should not use your phone in conditions that are either very hot or very cold.
For example, if it’s a hot day and you’re outside, try to avoid using your phone for extended periods of time. If you must use it, try to keep it in the shade as much as possible.
In cold weather, it’s best to keep your phone in your pocket as much as possible to keep it warm. And if you’re going to be in a very cold place for an extended period of time (like skiing), it’s best to turn off your phone or keep it in a warm place.
