When Do You Need to Replace Your iPad Battery

The iPad battery can wear out like any other battery and here is what you should know when it is time for you to change the older one and get a new battery

If you are in the market looking for a new tablet, it does not go without saying that the best one available in the market happens to be from Apple. Granted, there is always something that Samsung is doing and the new Galaxy Tab S lineup is a great way to go on an absolute powerhouse from Android but you have to understand that the sheer productivity options that are being given by Apple at the time of writing are always better and for a better experience, you cannot go wrong at all. If you want a good experience, that is the way to go.

Now, the important thing is that an iPad is just like any other device in the market that runs on battery, which means that as you use and spend time with the iPad, the battery of your device is going to deteriorate, and it will reach a point that you will not really have a good experience, and things can easily go wrong.

Therefore, it is up to you to ensure that you are aware of when is the right time to replace the battery of your iPad, or any other device, for that matter. The good news is that the process is not that difficult, which ensures that you can actually get away with doing it on your own.

However, if you are not sure how to handle something like this, we will always suggest that you are looking at hiring the professionals who are going to help you achieve the same.

How to Know It is Time to Replace Your iPad’s Battery

Now when it comes to changing the battery or understanding that it is time to change the battery on your iPad, things are a bit different. For starters, like some of the other Apple devices, you are not going to get any information on the battery health like you to get on an iPhone. Similarly, the iPads are also not going to show you the battery charge cycle counts. So, in most cases, you are left on your own that the battery of your iPad needs replacement.

Thankfully, after years of experience in the field, we have observed and curated a list of very commonly known signs that say “replace your battery”. These do apply to devices universally, so keep an eye out on these even if you don’t happen to have an iPad.

The Battery Timing Has Significantly Worsened

Batteries are generally complicating to understand. I remember this one time my phone’s battery sensor kept talking about how the phone’s battery is “too cold” to charge, and I need to wait for a while. What happened was an app was behaving maliciously. Therefore, uninstalling the app fixed the issue. Which is strange, to say the least.

What I mean to say here is that if you are suspecting that your iPad’s battery life is not the same as it used to be, there could be an app that is causing that. However, it is not always the case, as apps on iPads are normally not malicious, to begin with.

If you have been using your iPad in the same state as you bought it with only a handful of different apps, to begin with, and you are still noticing the change in your iPad battery life, then it is showing that it is time to start considering changing the battery finally.

The Battery Level Drops Even When on Charge

Another very, very sure way of telling that your iPad battery needs replacement is if the battery starts dropping even when you are charging the device. However, this is not always the case with a bad battery as a bad charger can cause that, as well. But if your charger seems to be working fine on a different device.

Normally, this is called a trickle charge method, but if the charger is fine, then it should not be trickle charging at all. Therefore, it would be better if you get the battery tested to see if it is working fine and therefore, it would be ideal if you get it removed because that is an important thing, as well. After all, these things batter a lot in such situations and it is important that you know.

Unnecessary Overheating

I still remember back when I had this excellent Xperia T and it was a great phone overall. However, the phone would overheat unnecessarily. At first, I thought it is just something more powerful devices in the market do but it didn’t take me long enough to realise that there was something seriously wrong with the battery, and getting the battery replaced fixed it.

The same is the case with pretty much any device available in the market whenever you are experiencing a lot of heating up scenarios without actually using the device actively or putting them through their paces.

There is Bloating on The Back of The Device  

We have talked about bloated batteries before too, and truth be told, it is one of the most common ipad repairs issues that you will face whenever you are talking about running into the battery issues. We are not going to explain why the batteries bloat, in the first place. But if you are someone who is experiencing that the front of your iPad screen has started to pop up, it is a sure sign that your iPad needs to have its battery replaced and you should get to it right away, so you do not run into any problems that could come in the way. If the bloat builds too much pressure, the screen will be forced to give way and crack and it will be a more costly ipad screen repair.

Only Powers Up With a Charger

This is perhaps the given fact that your iPad’s battery is completely done for. If you are in a situation where your iPad only powers up with a charger, there is no denying that the battery has given up and it is better that you are working towards removing it because it will be ideal if you do that. Otherwise, you are only getting yourself in unnecessary complication and we don’t want that.
