With just a few simple steps, you can check the charging cycles (cycles) on your iPhone without installing additional third-party applications.
What is a charge cycle?
To check the health status of the battery, you can access Settings (settings) – Battery (battery) – Battery Health (battery status). However, this information only gives users the battery level, not the charging cycle.

Charging cycle is not the number of charges, one cycle is equivalent to using 100% battery capacity. For example, today you use 75% of the battery capacity, then fully charge overnight. The next day you continue to use 25% more battery (ie 100% full), so iPhone will count as a charge cycle.
According to Apple’s recommendations, users should replace the iPhone battery after about 500 cycles (charge cycles) or when the maximum capacity is below 80%.
How to check the charging cycle on iPhone without installing the app
First, go to Settings – Privacy – Analytics & Improvements, then enable the Share iPhone Analytics option or Share iPhone and Watch Analytics (share iPhone and watch analytics) if you’re using Apple Watch.

Next, users need to wait a few days for the data to be aggregated and analyzed before moving on to the next steps.
When done, go to Settings – Privacy – Analytics & Improvements – Analytics Data, then look for the files titled log -aggregated and select the latest date.
In the new page that appears, users just need to find the BatteryCycleCount line, this is the number of charging cycles on the iPhone.
Note, when the number of charge cycles exceeds the 500 mark, it does not mean that you must replace the iPhone battery immediately. In fact, although the test iPhone has 517 charge cycles, the Maximum Capacity item is still at 88%, meaning that the device can still be used for a long time.
