iPhone 15 breaks records with 1000 charging cycles

Apple today shared encouraging news about the iPhone 15 battery, announcing a significant update to the charge cycle life for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models.

A surprising improvement in battery longevity

Initially, Apple had estimated that the iPhone’s battery would maintain up to 80% of its original capacity after 500 full charge cycles. However, after a series of extensive tests, the company has revised this figure, now reporting that the iPhone can retain 80% of its original capacity after 1,000 full charge cycles.

With the iPhone 15 Plus battery, Apple has marked a milestone in the industry, demonstrating that durability and performance can go hand in hand in the world of smartphones.

Advances in components and energy management

This notable advancement is attributed to Apple’s continued updates to battery components and power management systems over the years. Testing involved charging and discharging the battery 1,000 times under specific circumstances representing common use cases.

Applicability and future research

It should be noted that this improvement in battery life only applies to the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models. Previous iPhone models continue to have a retention rating of up to 80% capacity at 500 full charge cycles. However, Apple has also mentioned that it is investigating previous iPhone models for possible updates. In iOS 17.4, we can more easily check the health of the battery and its cycles.

Understanding battery capacity on iPhone 15

Apple defines maximum battery capacity as the relative capacity of the battery compared to when it was new. A battery’s capacity decreases as it chemically ages, which can result in fewer hours of use between charges. Depending on the time elapsed between manufacturing the iPhone and activating it, the battery capacity may show a value slightly less than 100%.

How to check your battery charge cycles

For iPhone 15 users, it is possible to check the battery charge cycle count directly in the Settings app. This information is not available for older iPhone models.
