How Long Does an iPhone Battery Last?

October 13, 2021

iPhone batteries use lithium-ion batteries to deliver a higher power density and long-lasting charge. Over time, though, the battery life will begin to diminish. Learn more about how long you can expect your battery to last and how you can maintain a good charge.

How Long Does a New iPhone Battery Last?

Lithium-ion batteries are designed to be stable and durable. Because these batteries still use chemical processes that will naturally degrade, you’ll most likely notice the battery life of your iPhone begins to decrease after about two years.

When this happens, your iPhone won’t be able to hold as many full charges. Many times, replacing just the battery, instead of purchasing a new iPhone, can restore charge length and performance.

iPhone Battery Health Check

Apple has made it quick and easy to access your iPhone battery’s health. If you have an iPhone with iOS 11.3 or later, you can view the battery health by clicking Settings > Battery > Battery Health.

You’ll be able to see insights on which apps use the most battery and view the current battery capacity. If you see that your battery health has dropped to around 80%, you may want to look into replacing it soon. A low health percentage means that your battery is struggling to power your phone and load applications. However, it is still fine to function for basic phone necessities.

Tips for Your iPhone Battery Health

There are several ways you can preserve your iPhone battery health:

  • Don’t store or use your phone in extremely cold or hot environments.
  • Lower your screen’s brightness or turn on “Auto-Brightness,” which automatically adjusts the brightness depending on the environment.
  • Use Wi-Fi instead of a cellular connection whenever possible.
  • Turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when not in use.
  • Minimize the number of apps with push notifications.
  • Only turn on AirDrop when you need to use it.
  • Close apps that are refreshing and running in the background.
