Do the iPad Pro (2nd generation) models have a battery issue?
Today I went to my local Apple store to replace my iPad Pro under AppleCare+ for $50 deductible because a very small dent had appeared on the back of it. I figured I was a year in so I might as well use one of my claims. The lady was very helpful and said she was going to check the battery for me. Okay, I thought not expecting anything exciting, only to find out my year old iPad Pro was sitting at 80% of its original capacity with only 118 charge cycles. Keep in mind my iPad has never been subjected to extreme temperatures or over zealous charging habits. When needed <55% or lower, I simply charge it overnight. I know that isn’t normal and had seen a lot of 10.5 Pro owners with similar or worse degraded batteries but I has dismissed it as an isolated issue. So right there that took my $50 replacement and turned it into a $0 replacement under warranty. I told the lady I will definitely come back in another year and have the battery replaced on the replacement iPad to prepare it for the years after my AppleCare+ expires. **To summarize:** The whole experience has left me wondering if the 2017 iPad Pro models have a battery degrading or quality control issue. In the next few years will we see a repeat of the iPhone 6 battery fiasco? What do you think?
