    Correct, except I really am hoping to keep the device for 30 months, and if I am using 6 charge cycles in 8 days, that suggests I'll hit the 500 cycles in about 20 months, so it's likely my battery will only have 80% of its original capacity by then. Hopefully Apple will still have the battery replacement program by then. (I've kept my 6s in a smart battery case almost since I had it, and did have the battery replaced under recall in Dec 2016, so I was lucky with that one. We'll see with this one.)
    500 charge cycles is not a limit. It's simply what Apple guarantees. I'm a very heavy user, and I've had my 6s Plus for 30 months. It's at about 70% life. It's hanging in there, but I'll need a new battery soon. I don't have a computer or an iPad. So my 6s Plus has been it all day, every day for 30 months.

    Yes, I know, they promise 80% capacity at 500 cycles. Issue is that I’m not sure that any worse than that will get me through a day based on how it is right now, plus, as I understand it, batteries often start losing capacity fast when they reach a level like that.

    Life capacity seems to deteriorate fairly slow. I do have to charge about 3 times a day, since I use it so much. I generally am using my phone while charging.

    Where do you get cycles? Off a 3rd party ?

    You have to do it from a computer, so far as I know. People with Macs here seem to be using Coconut, I did it on a PC using iMazing.
