Should You Get a New Battery for Your iPhone

Third-party iPhone batteries are a murky gray area at best. Third-party batteries from established brands with good support networks are probably safe enough. Generic batteries of unknown provenance? They can be downright dangerous.

That’s not the only factor to consider, either. iPhones are tricky to open and work on. With Apple’s very reasonable replacement prices these days, it’s probably worth spending the small price difference and having the original manufacturer poke around your phone’s insides. Given how little money it wold save you, third-party battery replacements are probably not worth it.

What does Maximum Capacity percentage mean?

Essentially, this percentage indicates how many times your iPhone has gone through recharge cycles. So what is a charge cycle? A charge cycle does not mean that you charged your iPhone from 0% to 100%. Here is what Apple says:

Apple lithium-ion batteries work in charge cycles. You complete one charge cycle when you’ve used (discharged) an amount that equals 100% of your battery’s capacity — but not necessarily all from one charge. For instance, you might use 75% of your battery’s capacity one day, then recharge it fully overnight. If you use 25% the next day, you will have discharged a total of 100%, and the two days will add up to one charge cycle. It could take several days to complete a cycle.

An Oversized Battery

It is the most direct sign to show you that your battery is gone. If the battery still serves your phone, it will harm your charging system.

Please think about replacing the battery once you notice a change in the size. Besides harming your system, the battery can break the case.

Tips to Extend Your iPhone’s Battery Lifespan

  • Keep your device up-to-date to enjoy the latest battery-focused software improvements.
  • Don’t use your device in extreme temperatures. And if you really have to, don’t expose it to extreme temperatures for too long or too often.
  • Remove the case while charging. Take out the case if you’re using the device in a hot environment to prevent the battery from overheating.
  • Don’t use third-party cables and chargers to charge your iPhone. Go full Apple.

While your iPhone’s battery starts degrading visibly after reaching 80 percent of battery health, it doesn’t necessarily mean you should get a new one. If the device still holds a sufficient charge to power you through the day, keep using the same battery. Replace it when you notice major performance issues or the device becomes unusable.
