iPhone battery replacement

Most of us know that smartphone batteries degrade as we recharge them, and there’s no exception when it comes to iPhones. Fortunately, a weak battery doesn’t mean you need an all-new iPhone – you can just replace the battery instead. If this is a path you want to take, here’s what you need to know. All smartphone batteries get weaker over time, but last year it was revealed that particular versions of iOS reduced the peak performance of older iPhone models with degraded batteries to prevent unexpected shutdowns. The decrease in peak performance should initially only be noticeable when using particularly demanding apps.

iPhones use lithium-ion batteries (as with all smartphones), which degrade over time due to the battery’s chemical composition. Apple says the iPhone battery is designed to retain 80% of its original capacity over 500 complete recharges. Replacing an old iPhone battery with a new one will restore performance to “normal”. In addition, a fresh battery will mean your iPhone will last longer before going flat. 

But at the end of the day, it is a consumable item and that will eventually deteriorate. . There are several secrets to maximizing the life of a battery and ensuring good performance. As per the estimation by Apple, the iPhone will lose close to 20% of its capacity after approximately 400 full charge & discharge cycles.

Here are a few tips to increase the life of your battery:

  • Keep locations services off
  • Enable low power mode when the battery is low (20%)
  • Check battery usage in the settings to view which App is consuming the most power.

Replacing the battery of your iPhone

  • Taking it to a Phonephix shop: Phonephix offers several services like replacing a battery, screen repair, repairing one with water damage, fixing the glass, etc. Thus replacing a battery is not a very big task nor is it a very time-consuming one for them. The process of replacing an iPhone battery is likely to take not more than 1 hour in most cases.
  • Approaching Apple: Taking it to Apple itself is like taking your car to a branded dealership. There is likely to be a long waitlist for the battery replacement, but they will give you the option of mailing it. The entire process can take up to 5 days.
