Iphone 11 at 86% Battery
Posted by: graylocks

I've had my IP11 a little over a year and last night I noticed that battery health is down to 86%. That seems disappointing. How are your phones aging?

yes, I do have battery optimization turned on.

That seems disappointing. I think my iP6 got to 85% after 3 years of use.

My iPhone 8 is roughly at that point. About 3 years old.

.....the SE that Apple changed the battery for.......is back to it's old ways, after a little over a year [ it always breaks after the one year warranty ].......now it won't even last a day before the battery is drained.....

i had the battery replaced in my 6s that i keep for back up purposes. the battery in that declined in short order also.

My iPhone X, which I bought in maybe 2018 is at 96%. It's my "trap" phone so I don't use it too too much though it's always with me.

our original SE iPhones (3 of them) in March 2019. They are all below 90% already. I also bought a new iPhone SE at that time, it is at 84%.

I think the batteries aged better before they added this "Optimize Battery Charging" feature. This should not cause battery degradation, but it probably coincides with some change in the manufacturing process or Apple chasing suppliers. Anyway I am disappointed.

I've had my X about 2 years, 9 months. It's a 93%. I think if you constantly run it down very low, it negatively impacts battery health.

I'm not sure how accurate of an indicator Battery Health is. My 6s, about 12-18 months after a battery replacement, would shut down in about 40 minutes of non use after a full charge. Even with that comically horrible battery life, it still showed Battery Health was 94%.

yes, I do have battery optimization turned on.

The battery will age faster if the phone is left it on the charger and/or if it's repeatedly charged to 100%.

I wish that Apple would let users customize the Max and Min levels of their batteries. I would probably set mine to stop charging at 90% and turn on Low Power Mode sooner than 20%, probably at 40-50% and ask if I want to continue or shut it down at 10%

My 6s plus still reads 100%. I never leave it on the charger after it completes charging or run it down lower than 20%. It has read 40% but was actually dead. Takes about 20 minutes of charging just to get it to boot up when that happens.
