How to calibrate the iPhone battery to last longer

How to calibrate the iPhone battery

You know calibrate iPhone battery? The battery of the devices is still today the endemic evil of smartphones along with other failures of the iPhone. With all that technology has advanced, our smartphones continue to integrate a battery that barely lasts one day, although in recent times the management of the battery in the latest operating systems has greatly improved. The only advances we find in the field of mobile device batteries are related to battery charging. Manufacturers insist on allowing our devices to charge as quickly as possible in the shortest amount of time.

A few months ago, Xiaomi introduced a battery that along with a special charger, allowed to charge 80% of the battery capacity in just 10 minutes. Samsung for its part is working on flexible batteries that would be useful in future projects that have in mind related to flexible devices. But nothing related to the battery life and its expansion possibilities.

When recharging our iPhone, the first 80% of the battery charges quickly to offer us the possibility of using it quickly. On the other hand when it exceeds 80%, the battery charge slows down to protect it and thus extend the life of the battery. When our battery reaches a certain number of cycles, between 700 and 1000, we should start thinking about calibrating the iPhone's battery more often than normal to be able to extend the battery life and for the battery's use by the Operating system be more efficient.

The first symptoms are shown when our device starts to turn off when it still has a battery, according to the percentage shown at the top. That is when we must proceed to calibrate it so that the device knows for sure when the battery has been charged and when it has 1% left, to prevent it from turning off early.

Battery cycles

As we can read on the Apple website, each charging cycle, unit of measure of the batteries It does not represent a 100% full charge of the battery but quite the opposite. Each time we completely discharge the battery from our device, a charging cycle has been completed. If one day we use 75% of our battery and charge the device the next day, we have not completed a cycle but only 75%. If the next day we use 25% of the battery we will have completed a full battery cycle.

To be able to calibrate the iPhone battery we will need to do it preferably in a weekend in which we do not have to go out, since it requires few simple steps that take several hours. Or remove the SIM card and use it on another device while the battery of our iPhone is calibrated correctly.

How to calibrate the iPhone battery

Calibrated battery

  • First we must charge the battery of our device 100%.
  • Once with 100% charge we disconnect it from the charger and make normal use of the device. If we want to spend the battery playing or watching movies is exactly the same, the important thing is that the iPhone runs out of battery.
  • When it is running out of battery, that is to say it reaches 1%, we continue to use the cell phone regularly until finally shut down.
  • Once off, we leave it like this without connecting it to the network to charge it. It is very important to leave the device completely without battery for six to eight hours.
  • Once the deadline has elapsed, between six and eight hours, we will proceed to reconnect the charger to our iPhone so that it begins to charge. This time we must keep the charger connected for six to eight hours, so that the device obtains a real measurement of the battery status.
  • It is very important that throughout this process, let's not touch the device at all, so the best option is to leave it in Airplane mode, so we will not be tempted to answer a call or WhatsApp.
  • Once six or eight hours have passed, we will proceed to disconnect the device from the network and restart it. To restart the device we will have to press and hold together the Standby and Start button for a few seconds until the apple logo appears.

Once this process is complete, the battery operation of our device should improve greatly compared to how it was doing so far, so that it will take much longer to move from 100% to 99% and 1% until the battery is completely turned off. From this moment, being a software problem, our iPhone will perfectly recognize the state of the battery.

Apple Store

If, on the contrary, the battery of our device, continues to give us problems with the duration or suddenly turns off when it still indicates that it has enough battery, the best option will be for go through the technical service Apple to change the battery for an officer.

We can also go to any of the different unofficial services to change the battery but it is not recommended. Like the unofficial technical services that allow us to replace the screen of our iPhone, the components of these services are not the original ones, so the operation of them can leave enough to be desired. There are times when it is preferable to change the screen and the battery directly in Apple even if it comes out a little more expensive, than trying to save us money and finally have to visit an Apple Store to solve the problem.

The price to change the battery of any iPhone model Directly in an Apple Store is 79 euros. In the different stores that offer us to change the battery without being Apple's official technical service, it can cost us the joke between 40 and 60 euros. It really is not worth it and more knowing the risk we run knowing that it is not an original Apple battery.
