    Do you use iMazing Mini? There is a detailed section that shows everything, you may be interested in. I uninstalled iMazing recently, so I can't say for sure which option needs to be selected to find it.

    Itís worth checking the Battery settings in the iPhone Settings app too. Nowadays it gives you a percentage list of what has used your power in the period since last charge.

    Where did you get Coconut battery? I don't recall having to install anything to my iPhone to use it. Did you go to the developer website or get it from some other location?

    I see there it a Coconut Battery Plus version now for US$9.95 but as we know you dont need that. On their web site (coconut-flavour.com) it list the features of both and if you are the site on a computer it gives you the option of downloading the current 3.8.2 version or Plus.

    The Coconut Battery Plus version allows you to see the battery status on your iPhone via WiFi from your Mac. In other words, you don't have to attach the phone to your Mac. As I stated previously, the battery status which is now built into iOS is accurate and you can check it from anywhere. No need for Coconut Battery Plus.

    Hello again Lori - not sure why you're having such a lot of trouble - the download (DL) to your Mac computer is from HERE (pic below) and appears as an icon in your DL folder which can be easily dragged to your Applications folder - you then need to cable your iDevice(s) to your computer and open the app - click on the 'iOS Device' tab and the information about that device's battery should be shown; now, this is for the non-Plus version. Let us know. Dave

    The indicator for the battery charge is accurate, but in my experience, the health indicator is grossly inaccurate. In the most extreme example, my mother-in-lawís iPhone was draining from 100% charge to nothing in about an hour while doing nothing but play some music. I literally could watch the charge indicator drop over a couple minutes. That despite hard resets and reinstalls of iOS. The battery health indicator read something like 96%. Coconut Battery had a more realistic number of something like 65%. Replacing the battery got her back to normal usage.

    Iíve seen similar disparities with my own iPhones and my wifeís in the past, though not quite with the extremely low life that my in-law had. Right now, my iPhone XR, which is just over a year old, still reads as having a battery life of 100%. I canít check that against Coconut Battery right now, but I have a hard time believing that after a year of regular use, the battery hasnít degraded even slightly.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Well, kind of baffled - have you tried another cable and since you are on Sierra, does your iPhone show up in iTunes? Dave

    I had put that aside for now. but will try again and document exactly what happens. yes I think my phone shows up in iTunes....I don't do anything specific with iTunes and it just pops up whenever and I really don't understand why....so I ignore it.

    tho right now this is not a priority for me as have other things to sort out.

    Hey Bob - thanks for the 'heads-up' on the battery features in iMazing - I've been using this app for a while and now not sure when this feature was added; but just checked both of my iDevice battery specs using the menu icon - works even on Wi-Fi w/o having to cable; I do have Coconut Plus, so can check the same specs wirelessly w/ that app, too - Dave

    The "access denied etc" may be because, as a security feature, when you connect any iDevice to your Mac, you must then open/activate your iDevice by Passcode, Fingerprint ID or Face Recognition.

    In other words, you connect your iDevice to the Mac. Open the app (coconut, iTunes etc) then open your iDevice with one of the methods above.

    This is to prevent illegal use of your iDevice in the wrong hands. You will have to do this each time.
