Checking your iPad’s battery health
To check your iPad’s battery health, open the Settings app and tap on Battery. Here, you will see a section called Battery Health (Beta). Tap on that to get started.
On the Battery Health screen, you will see two pieces of information: Maximum Capacity and Peak Performance Capacity.
Maximum Capacity is the amount of charge your battery can hold when it is new. As your battery ages and goes through more charging cycles, its capacity will decrease. The amount by which it decreases depends on a number of factors, but it is normal for a battery’s capacity to decrease over time.
Peak Performance Capacity is a measure of your battery’s ability to deliver peak power output. As your battery’s capacity decreases, so does its ability to deliver peak power. If you notice that your iPad is not performing as well as it used to, it could be because its Peak Performance Capacity has decreased.
You can also use the Battery Health screen to enable or disable Performance Management. Performance Management is a feature that helps to prevent your iPad from unexpectedly shutting down by dynamically managing the maximum performance of your device’s processor. If you enable this feature, you will see a message letting you know that performance management has been turned on.

iPad battery health news
Good news: Apple’s finally rolled out a feature that tells you the health of your iPad battery. Here’s how to check it.
Bad news: if your iPad is anything like mine, its battery isn’t in great health.
Here’s how to check the health of your iPad battery, and what the status messages mean.
First, open Settings and tap on Battery. Next, tap on the Battery Health section.
If your iPad is running iOS 11.3 or later, you’ll see two pieces of information: Maximum Capacity and Peak Performance Capacity. Maximum Capacity is a measure of your iPad’s capacity relative to when it was new; a brand new iPad should have a Maximum Capacity of 100%. As the number goes down, it means that your iPad’s battery can hold less and less charge. My iPad Pro 9.7-inch, for instance, has a Maximum Capacity of 86%.
Peak Performance Capability measures whether or not your iPad is being throttled due to battery health. If you see the message “This iPhone has experienced an unexpected shutdown because the battery was unable to deliver the necessary peak power. Performance management has been applied to help prevent this from happening again,” that means your iPad is being throttled due to an old or degraded battery.
