IPhone models have a battery health feature that gives you a good idea of depleting battery capacity over time, as well as tools to optimize battery health and slow down the aging process. While this is a fair indicator of the age of your battery, you can also assess the battery status of your iPhone by checking the number of charge cycles – by looking at the logs. The number of battery cycles is essentially the number of times the battery has completely drained the battery and then been completely recharged.
The number of cycles is completed only when the iPhone is completely depleted of 100 percent of the battery. So, even if you charge the iPhone in the middle during battery drain, the cycle will only be completed when the iPhone is completely depleted.
