Apple Doubles The iPhone 15’s Battery Lifespan Estimate To 1,000 Charge Cycles

If you’re the proud owner of an iPhone 15 or iPhone 15 Pro device or are planning on picking one up any time soon, there’s some good news to be had — Apple now says that those devices’ batteries will last for twice as long as it first estimated.

The news comes after Apple had previously said that the new iPhones would be good for 80% battery health after 500 charges, just like all of the models that came before them.

However, it has now been confirmed that the batteries are holding up so well that Apple can now confidently say that they will have at least 80% battery health by the time they reach the 1,000 charge cycle mark.

Maximum battery capacity measures the device battery capacity relative to when it was new. A battery will have lower capacity as the battery chemically ages which may result in fewer hours of usage between charges. Depending upon the length of time between when the iPhone was made and when it is activated, your battery capacity may show as slightly less than 100%.

This news only affects those who have one of the new generation of iPhones however. Apple’s advances in battery technology and battery management software are able to combine to ensure that the new 1,000-cycle milestone can be met.

This should all mean that fewer iPhone owners need to replace their batteries due to poor performance quite so soon.
