Battery Health on the iPhone provides users with crucial insights into the condition of their device’s battery. It monitors the battery’s capacity and performance over time, offering details such as Maximum Capacity and Peak Performance Capability. Users can access this feature through the Settings app under “Battery.”

Mac Battery Health

While MacBooks don’t have a dedicated “Battery Health” feature like iPhones, they do provide information about the battery. Users can find details such as cycle count, condition, and maximum charge by clicking on the Apple logo in the top-left corner, selecting “About This Mac,” and then clicking on “System Information.” Under the “Power” section, various battery-related details are available, giving users insights into their Mac’s battery status.

Apple Watch Battery Health

Similar to iPhone, Apple Watches come equipped with a battery management system. Users can check the battery health of their Apple Watch by opening the Watch app on their paired iPhone. Within the app, navigate to “My Watch” > “General” > “Usage” to find information about battery usage, including the usage time and standby time. While it might not provide detailed metrics like Maximum Capacity, users can monitor the overall performance of their Apple Watch battery.

iPad Battery Health

Unlike iPhone and Apple Watch, iPad does not have a specific Battery Health feature in the Settings app. While users can monitor their iPad’s battery usage and view information such as battery percentage, the detailed insights provided by the Battery Health feature on the iPhone are not available for iPads.
