What does the battery health information mean?
The battery health information provides you with important insights into the current condition of your iPad's battery. It includes the maximum capacity and peak performance capability.
The maximum capacity indicates the overall health of your battery. A higher percentage means your battery is in good condition, while a lower percentage indicates a degraded battery.
The peak performance capability shows whether your iPad supports peak performance management. If your battery has degraded significantly, your device may automatically reduce its performance to prevent unexpected shutdowns.
How to interpret the battery health information?
If your iPad's battery health is above 80%, it is considered to be in good condition. However, if the battery health is below 80%, it may be time to consider a battery replacement.
