The addition of Battery Health information in Settings gives you a picture how well your iPhone’s battery is doing and whether or not it’s capable of supporting peak performance. But, it doesn’t go into much detail at all. In fact, if you ask a geek, they will probably just dismiss the percentage and instead prefer the iPhone battery cycle count. In today’s tutorial we will show you how you can find just that, without using third-party software or even connecting your iPhone to your computer.

If you have a significantly high battery count, in the range of 500 or more, then your battery is going to slowly give up the ghost on you, forcing you to either upgrade your phone or get a battery replacement. As you can see from the above screenshot, I have a cycle count of 123 on my iPhone 11 Pro Max, which is nothing short of legendary.

Draining the battery from 100% to 0% and then charging it back up is counted as one cycle. But, if you drain the battery to 50% one day and charge it again to full and drain it to 50% again the next day and charge it to 100%, that too is one cycle count.

You can avoid bringing the cycles up too quickly by leaving your phone on charge whenever you are not using it. Our smartphones are smart enough to know when to cut power off ensuring that battery is not harmed when you leave it plugged in. Also, whenever your phone is no charge, it’s a super good idea to never use it. Always unplug from the charger even if you are sending just a small text message.
