What is the battery Cycle Count on iPhone?
iPhone’s Battery Cycle Count is a useful metric that gives us an idea about the battery health of an iPhone. A battery cycle is the full charge and discharge of an iPhone’s battery. A battery has a limited number of cycle counts and needs to be replaced when that cycle count has been reached. A battery with a higher battery cycle count could have a lower battery capacity and run for a shorter period of time on a single charge.
Apple says the iPhone’s battery is designed to retain up to 80% of its original charging capacity at 500 complete cycles provided it has operated under normal conditions.
A complete cycle occurs when the device’s battery discharges a full 100% charge. So if you charge your device up to 50%, then your iPhone will complete one battery cycle when its battery discharges 50% battery twice.
