How to check iPad battery charge cycle and health?

There are several ways you can check the battery charge cycles and the current maximum charge capacity on your iPad. You can use the analytic logs or rely on third-party tools on your Mac or Windows PC.

All methods are described below. These methods work for all iPad models, including iPad, iPad Air, iPad Pro, and iPad Mini, and have been tested on the latest iPadOS 15.

Method 1- Find the number of charge cycles with iPad Analytics

While iPad doesn’t have a native option to display battery status, you can still find the number of charge cycles using iPad analytics. However, you must have “Shared iPad Analytics” enabled for it to work. If it is disabled, enable it and try the method after a day.

Step 1- Copy the log from iPad Analytics

1. Open Settings on your iPad.

2. Here, select Privacy and click Analytics & Enhancements.

3. In the next screen, click Analytics Data.

4. In the next screen you will see several log files. Scroll down and look for the file called log-aggregated.

Can’t find Analytics data? It’s probably because iPad analytics is disabled. Turn on the switch for “iPad Analytics” in Privacy > Analytics & Enhancements and wait a day for the data to be generated.

5. Tap the most recently aggregated file to open it.

6. Double tap anywhere, select and copy all text.

Step 2- Paste the Copied Login Notes

1. Now open the Notes app on your iPad. Can’t find it? Open it from the app library or search with Spotlight Search.
