It is not unusual for a battery to lose power gradually over time. The built-in lithium-ion batteries only have a limited life span. With each charging cycle the capacity is decreasing. Sometimes the circumstances are only temporary - for example intense cold affects the battery, but fortunately not permanently. If your battery is permanently damaged, you will probably notice one of the following signs:
The rapid discharge can be a sign that it is advisable to replace the battery. Monitor the battery level during the day. Some apps or updates may also cause your battery to perform poorly. Question this before you decide too early to replace the battery.
No matter how long you charge your smartphone - your battery does not reach 100% charge anymore. The internal materials have already degraded so much that the electrical energy can no longer be held.
Do you know this one? You pull your iPhone off the charger and suddenly the charge level of your battery drops from 80% to 70%? Then it is time to act! This is one of the most important signs that a battery exchange is reasonable.
Something's definitely wrong here. You should stop using your device to avoid any overload. In the worst case, your smartphone could catch fire.
The lithium-ions used in the smartphone battery have a limited life span. Therefore, the performance decreases with the usage of the battery. But some behaviors also lead to your battery losing capacity faster than necessary. To get the most out of your iPhone battery, avoid the following:
Apple frequently provides improved energy saving functions with its software updates. So make sure to install the latest version on your iPhone.
If your battery is so empty that your iPhone switches itself off, the battery will be permanently damaged. But even a charge to 100% is not recommended. Both stress the battery and reduce its performance. We recommend keeping your battery level between 30% and 80%. You should also avoid weather extremes: Apple itself states that the iPhone works best in an ambient temperature between 0°C and 35°C.
Do not leave your iPhone connected to the power supply longer than necessary, including at night while you sleep. If the battery is close to its upper capacity limit for several hours, performance will be permanently affected.
