    Please post your battery capacity now that iOS 11.3 has introduced battery health.

    Here’s mine:
    Launch Day 6s - 86%

    2/17/17 7 Plus - 95%
    (That’s a lot of 7s, too bad I didn’t get it on 7/17/17 )

    That’s amazing, that maybe the only 7 Plus with original battery from 2016 that is still at 100%.

    It is the original battery, correct?

    Yes, correct. The old one was at 80% when they replaced it.

    Yes, the original battery. I’ll be bold and assert that it’s proof that partial charging works best. I never let it run dry for no good reason. Not even the every few months run dry that I use to recommend.

    I charge mine everyday as well. I believe my battery is impacted by the the extreme temperatures it gets exposed to during my trips, sometimes all in the same day.

    Having said that 95% after 14 months isn’t all that bad imho.

    Dang! There goes my Nobel Prize!

    Yea. 95% is plenty good. I guess all this means that none of us witnessed any slow down on our iPhones. So was all this a ‘nothing burger’?

    So Vf, what is your opinion on not fully charging a battery?

    I always charge my 7 plus to 100% but not so the 6s. The battery on the 6s was replaced about a year back and yet the battery capacity on it is much lower.

    The biggest and the only difference is the charging pattern, what do you think?

    Off hand, I don’t know all the parameters. Even for my case I wonder about the effect of not fully draining and charging has on the calibration...and how Apple algorithms use that or not.

    Other than that, I know that partial recharging is preferable than draining to zero...but recharging to a full 100% may be required to get a full ion exchange in the battery and hence maximum capacity.
