iPhone models have a Battery Health feature that gives you a fair idea of the decrease in battery capacity over time, as well as tools to optimize battery health and slow down the aging process. While this is a reasonable indicator of the age of your battery, you can also assess the health of your iPhone’s battery by checking its charge cycle count – peeking through the logs. A battery cycle count is essentially the number of times your battery lasts to fully drain the battery and recharge it completely again.
One cycle counts only when the iPhone completely drains 100 percent of the battery. So, even if you charge the iPhone intermittently through battery drain, a cycle will be completed only when the iPhone has completely exhausted its charge.
