What are the advantages and disadvantages of replacing your iPhone battery?

Lithium-ion batteries are known for high performance fast charging capability and long-lasting life if you charge them correctly. However, if you been using your iPhone for more then 2 years without replacing the battery it could lose its performance by not delivering enough power to the motherboard causing your iPhone to slow down.

It is also easy to overcharge the battery by leaving it on the charger for more than 10-12 hours or charging it several times a day without reaching full 100% can also lead you to battery failure causing the same effects like an old battery such as random percentage fluctuation- going from 50% to 10% in a matter of seconds- as well as random restarts, shutdowns, and swollen battery. These issues all can be fixed with a battery replacement.

Battery repair is a fairly inexpensive and quick process, therefore, you should consider getting your battery replaced rather than spending thousands on a new device. There are no disadvantages of replacing your iPhone battery as long as it is done correctly.

You won’t lose any data as long as the repair was done correctly. If you are tired of running around with portable batteries and charging your iPhone 3-4 times a day and annoyed by its slow performance but wouldn’t like to spend thousands on a new device, it is definitely worth to get a new battery since it is a super inexpensive solution compared to other alternatives.

Why is my battery turning yellow?

Apple invented some software changes to maximize the lifetime of your battery. When you reach 20% your iPhone automatically will ask you if you would like to use the “Low Power Mode” to lengthen the remaining battery life. In this mode your phone will automatically limit or turn off certain functions such as email fetch, “Hey Siri”, background app refresh, automatic downloads, some visual effects and set your auto-lock to 30 seconds. For more information about “Low Power Mode” please visit Apple.com.

When should I get my battery replaced?

iPhone batteries have been developed to deliver optimal voltage to your iPhone’s main-board making it fast and powerful. When your iPhone starting to freeze or takes forever to open applications it is probably time to get a new battery. Also if it dies anywhere above 1% or just fluctuating up and down it is a firm sign that your iPhone battery is giving up.

In some rare cases your battery may swell up causing your screen to lift up, that is a pretty alarming sign to get it fixed. Apple also added a feature in order to test the battery life. To access these feature, click: Settings > Battery > Battery Health. It is recommended to replace your battery when it falls below 85% of its performance.

How to make your iPhone battery last longer?
