Apple’s iPhone 6 battery lasts up to ten hours between charges, but this can vary depending on how often you use your device. According to Apple, the iPhone 6’s battery maintains 80 percent of its capacity for up to 500 charging cycles.
This equates to roughly 14 to 18 months of optimal battery usage, after which, things can start to change. On that note, have you been experiencing issues with your iPhone 6 battery?
If so, there are many potential causes of battery problems. For starters, your iPhone battery may simply be dead. If this happens, charge the device and you’ll be on your way.
Is your device underperforming? There are also remedies such as force restarting the iPhone. Force restarting your iPhone can stop all unnecessary apps and programs from running, which cause your battery to die faster than usual.
If problems with your battery continue to persist, your iPhone 6 probably needs a battery replacement. In order to detect if you in fact need iPhone 6 battery replacement, we’ve curated a list of five signs to be on the lookout for.

If you used to have more precious time with your device than you do now, you likely need a new battery. Batteries usually start to die quickly due to advanced age.
Fourteen to eighteen months is the average time that you can enjoy the full benefits of your iPhone 6 battery. So if it’s been that long, you should consider an iPhone 6 battery replacement service.
When your phone dies faster than usual, it does not mean that it is ruined or that you have a virus. It’s simply that over time, the battery will start to wear and tear due to age and prolonged usage.
Your iPhone 6 is overheating
Rechargeable batteries will generate some heat, but if your iPhone 6 becomes so hot that you can’t hold it, turn it off. Excessive heat can cause major damage to an iPhone and its battery.
This is another indication that your iPhone is in need of a battery replacement right away. Cooling down the device will allow you to save money on replacing the entire phone, and focus on getting a new battery for your existing iPhone.
