    Welcome to iMore and thanks for joining. All batteries wear as time passes. If you feel the battery on your 7 Plus is draining more than a normal battery of that age should, I suggest you contact Apple to see what can be done. Feel free to join in on the many thread discussions on iMore.

    The 7 Plus is starting to age a little. The battery in my wife's iPhone 7 is showing wear. Have you checked the battery life in settings> Battery? If so, what does it show?

    The battery in the 7 plus should last about 500 complete charge-recharge cycles. A complete cycle goes up to 100% charged, and then down to 0%. Most of us do not use our batteries in quite that way, so we should get more than 500 days usage, even if we recharge every night. Typically, one should expect to get perhaps 1,000 to 1,200 days of reasonable battery life. This would be three to almost four years.

    Even during that period, the battery ages. You won't get the original lifetime even after the equivalent of 100 cycles. Once the battery capacity falls to say 60% as shown in Settings > Battery, you should consider a battery or phone replacement.

    Note that this is true for lithium-ion batteries which are those in almost every smart phone marketed today.

    The capacity on my 7+ is currently showing at 87%. I take my phone off charger every weekday morning at 7am when I leave the house and don't connect it back to the charger until I go to bed, normally around 11pm. At that time I still have anywhere from 30%-40% battery and I use my phone a lot during that 6 hour period.

    To travel 100 miles by car, and cellular data is on, the iPhone 7 plus battery automatically discharges.
