iPhone models have a battery health feature that gives you a good idea of how battery capacity drains over time, as well as tools to optimize battery health and slow the process of aging. While this is a reasonable indicator of the age of your battery, you can also judge the health of your iPhone’s battery by checking the number of times it has been charged – by looking at the logs. A battery cycle count is essentially the number of times your battery has been fully discharged and then fully recharged.
A cycle count is only complete when the iPhone has completely discharged 100 percent of the battery. So even if you charge the iPhone in the middle of a battery discharge, a cycle will only complete when the iPhone is fully charged.
