How to check iPhone battery health – Perfomance Tips

Iphone has come a long way since its launch back in 2007. From iPhone to iPhone 6s plus, with each new model released, it has taken the entire mobile industry by storm. From revolution to the Next BIG thing, iPhone is not just another phone, its iPhone. I love how they say it on their commercials “If you don’t have a iPhone you , you don’t own a phone”

You can’t easily brick your iPhone unless you trying to act over smart. iPhone comes with a premium price tag and has its own share of consumers. With every new model of iPhone, Apple introduced something never heard of. With iPhone 4 they brought siri and retina display, with iPhone 5 they introduced LTE for blazing fast mobile internet experience, their Iphones even got bigger this time and also taught the world how fingerprint technology can change the way phone interacts with its owner. And the Launch of iPhone 6 gave us a very pleasant surprise with the introduction of unique 3D touch. Hat’s off to the research team working behind the scene, to make iPhone unique and exclusive time and again. Having said that the premium price of iPhone is always debatable .

No matter what Phone you use, what OS your phone runs on or what model of phone you use, the battery of your phone is the most element of any phone. Consider this, what good would it be Lamborghini or Ferrari car, if is gas tanker was only 1 gallon ? Definitely it would make these engineering masterpiece pretty much useless.
