One of the most common battery-powered devices in Maple Grove are our cell phones. And with more than 300 million mobile phones in use throughout the United States alone, that’s a lot of battery power.
As many have noticed, after only a few years of use, battery life in our phones becomes just a fraction of what it was when it was new. Apple claims battery life is good for 400 to 500 charge cycles. After that, you might want to look into iPhone battery replacements.
But how do you know if it’s time to replace your iPhone battery?
To check your iPhone battery health:
- Go to Settings > Battery.
- Tap on “Battery Health.”
- From here you can see the maximum capacity of your battery. This is a measure of your battery capacity relative to when the battery was new.
- Below this is an indication of the battery’s peak performance capacity.
If your iPhone battery is nearing the end of its life, you have two choices: Replace the battery or the entire phone. When you bring your phone to the Apple store, they charge $49-69 for an out-of-warranty battery replacement. While this is spendy, it is less expensive than purchasing a new iPhone, which ranges from $750 to more than $1,200.
“Smart phones have become such a critical part of our lives, a dead battery can mean the inability to get to your destination and can even be the difference between missing a crucial business call or a family emergency notice,” said Brad Swenson, vice president of Device Pitstop technology resale stores.
