Comprehensive battery condition and status check including charging cycles

Exclusively for iPhone 15 (Plus) and iPhone 15 Pro (Max)

From iOS 17.4, iPhone 15 (Plus) and iPhone 15 Pro (Max) users can request extensive information about the battery condition of their device. This not only shows the maximum capacity, but also charging cycles, production date and more.

This information has been present since iOS 17.0, but was hidden in Settings ▸ General ▸ About ▸ Battery. From iOS 17.4 you can find this information directly in the battery settings on your iPhone.

Check iPhone battery status

Are you curious how often you fully charged your iPhone’s battery, when the battery was produced and first put into use? Then you can check this from the iPhone 15 series, unfortunately older models do not show this. To do this, follow the steps below.

  • Open Settings
  • Navigate to ‘Battery’
  • Tap ‘battery condition’

Do you have iOS 17.3.1 or older installed on your iPhone 15 (Pro)? You can then find this information via Settings ▸ General ▸ Info ▸ Battery.

Apple says that the iPhone’s battery is designed to last 1,000 full charge cycles under ideal conditions before reaching 80% capacity.

If desired, you can extend the life of the iPhone battery even further by using a charging limit.

Charging cycle calculation

A charging cycle is calculated as follows; Suppose you use the iPhone up to 40% of the battery charge, then fully charge it. The next day you use the device, but up to 60% and fully charge it again. The battery has then completed one charging cycle and not two (because you charged twice). It may therefore take a few days for the battery to complete a full charging cycle.
