My iPad battery is running down faster than before. Is there a solution here?


From dianne: This branch of posts has been detached from Battery care? in the “Mac Desktops & Notebooks” forum and renamed.

I don't think so, but iPads are out of my specific league.

I'll guess, though, that the first thing to maybe consider is how much use it gets/has gotten...whether there's any sort of app, utility, or other iOS magic that can give you a readout of your battery's health?

That's where I'd start, with the Apple Store a possible step two.

could just be age. capacity goes down with use. loss tends to accelerate near end of life.
