How to check the battery health of your Apple iPhone

How to check the battery health of your Apple iPhone

The suits, which could very well turn into a major class-action, have sought everything from free battery replacements, refunds for those purchasing new iPhones because of the slowdowns, or simply more details on how slowdowns can be eliminated by replacing the battery. Owners of the iPhone 6 and newer models are entitled to the special pricing after it was discovered the company had been throttling processors on those devices to compensate for degraded batteries. But with the program being underway, the Apple customer can now visit any Apple Store or log on to Apple's support site and request to get their battery replaced at discounted price.

Apple will be significantly affected by its decision to offer $29 battery replacements to address the iPhone battery controversy, as the company stands to lose iPhone sales worth over $10 billion. As seen, the costs are offered by Samsung is slightly expensive than what Apple is charging its customers now even after its reduced battery replacement cost. However, the company explained that it was doing so to prevent random shutdowns caused by old batteries, and not to force customers to upgrade to the latest iPhone models. Here's a quick guide on how to see if your device is being slowed down by an older iPhone battery.

Nick Philko, 44, of Huntington Woods, said he took his phone to Fix A Fone, a third-party repair shop in Farmington Hills, to get a new battery instead of the Apple store because he didn't want to deal with the crowds - or wait.

For the Korean lawsuit, Apple's latest move on discounted batteries makes their case even stronger, in that Apple is suffering zero for their deception of degrading iPhone performance.

"Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components".

"I knew there was something wrong with my battery", he said on Friday. For example, an iPhone X comes with a battery (the X actually has two batteries inside) with a total capacity of 2,716 milliamps per hour (mAh); according to the Battery Life app, it still has that full capacity. Thankfully, the entire process is remarkably simple, though with everyone swarming the Genius Bar to order a replacement battery between now and the end of the year, you might be waiting a little while.

Previously, whenever developers tried to release an app that measured iPhone battery charge cycles, Apple pulled it from the App Store.

"I do feel like I got swindled", she said.

So she took that phone back to the store and purchased a new iPhone 7 Plus. Follow the steps below to see if it's time to replace your iPhone battery.

Or there is the hands-on approach: Buy a battery replacement kit, like the $25 (roughly Rs. 1590) one sold by iFixit.
