In this article, I’ll show you how to calibrate the battery of your iphone. But first of all, let me tell you what it does and why you should do it.
First of all, it’s worth noting that calibrating the battery of your iphone will not improve your iPhone battery life.. Lithium batteries will degrade, as they age, of course, as they undergo repeated charging cycles. Regardless of that, ios will track the operating range of the battery, but the battery trackman requires adjustments.
Have you ever noticed sometimes iOS won’t show the accurate battery percentage that you have on your iphone? Sometimes you might experience unexpected shutdowns or battery will just drop in huge percentages, say you have 20, then it drops to 10 and then your phone will just shut down, even though it says it’s at 10. That’s why you need to calibrate the battery of your iphone.

Have you ever noticed if your iphone is drained out of battery and you plug it into charge once it’s up, it will show like five or six percent battery.

Step #4: Now, once your iPhone turn on, What you need to do is just go ahead and press volume up, volume down the side button and go ahead and turn off the device, and let it sit like that for three or four hours, so it will charge completely. Of course the iphone will be off, but it will be charging, so it won’t show the charging indicator here, but just let it sit for like three hours. three hours is enough, but just to be sure, maybe let it sit like three or four hours until it charges completely.
Step#5: After three hours, what you need to do is, with the cable still plugged on your iphone, just go ahead and press the side button and turn on your iphone. Now, once your iphone is back on, what you need to do is force reboot your iphone, so press and release the volume up button, press and release the volume down button and then press and hold the side button until you see the Apple logo. That means that your iphone is doing a forced restart, and this is the last step that you need to do, and once your iphone is back on. All you have to do is just remove the cable, and now the process is done. The calibration of iPhone battery has been finished.
