How to check your Battery Health on iPhone

Introduced in iOS 11, Battery Health shows you the current battery capacity of your iPhone. As your device ages, the battery naturally loses its ability to hold power and will not last as long on a single charge. Though there is no way to avoid this, Apple’s inclusion of Battery Health to iOS is pretty helpful as it allows you to monitor the health of your battery so you can have an idea of when you might need to replace it.

Unless your iPhone is below peak performance capability and experiences an unexpected shutdown, performance management/throttling will not be applied to it, however, If you are experiencing performance issues, your Battery Health could be low. Here’s how to check your Battery Health on iPhone in a few simple steps.
