According to Apple’s official instructions, the iPhone’s battery can retain up to 80% of its original capacity after 500 full-charge cycles. If the battery’s storage capacity is below 80%, the power consumption will increase and the performance will also be affected. An author of a recent well-known technology website ZDNet found that after using iPhone 8 Plus for about 4 months, although the number of use is small, the battery's charge cycle has reached 91 times, that is, as long as the phone uses about 18 In a month, it reached the 500 charging cycles officially described by Apple.
