How to Check Your iPhone’s Current Battery Health Right Now
Here’s how you can check your iPhone’s battery status using a few apps directly from the iOS App Store or directly from iOS itself.
Check your iPhone’s battery health and see if you need a replacement.
Now that the cat is out of the bag with Apple revealing that it’s throttling iPhones with old batteries, it’s best to get in on the action by checking your iPhone’s battery health. You can do this using a set of apps on the App Store, absolutely free.
Once you have established that your battery is deteriorating, you can take appropriate action. This may include getting a replacement battery directly from Apple, which will only cost you $29. But there’s a catch: you should have at least an iPhone 6 or newer handy, and the $29 offer is valid until December 2018. If you have an older device, like an iPhone 5s , you cannot take advantage of Apple’s offer. Still, it’s something.

Check iPhone battery using iOS.
It might sound a bit surprising, but you can actually check your battery status using iOS itself. If you have iOS 11 installed, just go to Settings > Battery on your iPhone. At the very top, if you have a bad battery, you will see a warning label saying ‘Your iPhone battery may need service.’ If you don’t see it, that means your iPhone battery is just fine, at the moment. And hope it stays that way.
Bring your iPhone to Apple.
If you’re still unsure about your iPhone’s battery, it’s best to take it to Apple directly. Just pick up the nearest Apple Store, get a Genius appointment, and you’re good to go.
