What Happens If Your iPhone Battery Is At 70%

The battery in your iPhone is capable of around 300 to 400 complete battery cycles, or full charges before reaching 80% of its original capacity. This usually takes about two full years of iPhone use, which is why we tend to think of smartphones as having a two-year lifespan.

Once the battery health percentage drops below 80 percent, the amount of charge your battery can hold starts to diminish. However, that doesn’t mean you should rush to get a new battery.

Last Steps To Try Before A Repair

If none of the above applies to you, but your iPhone battery is draining at an alarming rate, there’s a chance that the poor performance has something to do with how you’re using the phone.

For some great advice on how to get a few more hours out of every charge, head over to our complete guide here.

Charging your iPhone overnight reduces battery life

Ideally, a battery’s capacity starts to diminish once it hits the 500 charge-discharge cycles. A full cycle happens when you use a battery’s 100 percent power. And as you know, leaving your phone to charge overnight will charge up to 100 percent.

This means, that if you charge every day overnight, your battery performance will begin to diminish within a few years. Besides, due to knocks and other elements, a battery’s performance gradually diminishes with time.

Restore your iPhone (without a backup)

Settings → General → Reset

Open up the “Settings” app, then go to “General” and finally “Reset”. Now tap the button titled “Erase All Content and Settings”. Then follow the assistant to set up your iPhone as a new device, instead of selecting your most recent backup. This will provide you with an opportunity to test the iPhone as a clean slate, so to speak. If your battery issues are gone, you had a software issue. If you still experience the premature shutdown issue, check the next solution.

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.
