Though all iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad devices have always had a battery life indicator located in the upper right corner of the screen, there was never any specific way to track exactly how long your battery was lasting without the use of third party applications. That is, however, until the release of Apple’s iOS 6 operating system. Built into the “Settings” application is a native way to see just how long your device has been able to last on a full charge. The utility tracks both regular use and standby modes as different indicators, letting you see exactly how long your iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad battery will last down to the minute.



Step 1

Plug your iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad into either your computer or the included adapter and charge its battery to full capacity. For older iOS devices, use the included Apple USB cable to charge your device. For newer iPod Touch, iPhone 5 and iPad 4 devices, use the included Apple Lightning connector. To get the most accurate battery life results from the built-in tracker, your device must have a full charge. Do not unplug your device until the battery life indicator reaches “100%”.


Step 2

Continue to use your iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad under normal circumstances. If you typically spend a lot of your time listening to music, for example, continue to listen to all of your favorite songs and albums. If you typically play video games, continue to play your favorite games or use your desired applications. To get the most accurate reading from the built-in battery life indicator you should not alter your usage habits and instead use your device exactly how you normally would.


Step 3

Tap the “Settings” application on your device. The same grey “Settings” icon is present on all iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad devices regardless of version.


Step 4

Tap the “General” menu heading, followed by the “Usage” category. The right side of your device screen will fill with a breakdown of the storage capacity on your device. Each application that you have installed on your device will be listed, accompanied by a breakdown of how much storage space each app is using.


Step 5

Scroll all the way to the bottom of the main application window until you find the section labeled “Time since last full charge.” The “Usage” category will tell you exactly how much time it has been since your last full charge under normal use. The “Standby” category will tell you exactly how much time it has been since your last full charge while your device was in “Standby” mode. Each listing will be presented in hours and minutes.
