iPhone Battery Replacement: When's The Right Time To Replace Your iPhone's Battery?

Looking for “iPhone battery replacement Calgary”, “iPhone battery replacement Burnaby”, or “iPhone battery replacement Surrey”? Before you start your search for an iPhone battery replacement, take another look at your current iPhone to evaluate if it’s really necessary  to replace the battery. Generally, iPhones and other smartphones should replace their batteries after roughly 500 cycles of charges, which happen in about one to two years.

When Should I Replace My iPhone Battery?

If you want to know your iPhone’s battery health, you’re in luck! Apple added a feature that lets you easily assess your iPhone battery health.

In early 2018, Apple released an iOS software update with new features that "give users more visibility into the health of their iPhone’s battery, so they can see for themselves if its condition is affecting performance".

To check your iPhone battery life, go to Settings > Battery and tap on Battery Health. In there, you’ll find a section called “Maximum Capacity.” This section tells you about the health of your battery compared to when it was new. For example, a completely unused iPhone’s Maximum Capacity may display 90%, while a frequently used, one-year old iPhone’s Maximum Capacity may read 50%. In this case, the new iPhone that has a 90% Maximum Capacity has a longer battery life while the older iPhone that has 50% Maximum Capacity has less. Over time, every iPhone and smartphone will see a decline in battery life.

The Battery Health feature also shows another metric called the “Peak Performance Capability”. If your battery is functioning without any issues, “Peak Performance Capability” would show a message that says “Your battery is currently supporting normal peak performance”. If there have been issues (for example, if your iPhone shuts down suddenly without warning), you’ll see a different message. You may see a message that says something about how your iPhone suddenly shut down because the iPhone battery couldn't support peak power or it was under pressure. If you’re receiving these messages frequently and your iPhone malfunctions regularly, it might be time to replace your iPhone battery.

iPhone Battery Replacement Warning Signs

In addition to the critical messages mentioned above, there are other warning signs that you should take under consideration when you’re debating whether you should replace your iPhone battery. Here are some issues you might see:

  • Stuttering screen
  • Launching apps takes a long time
  • Backlight gets dimmer than normal
