Thank you for the app! I just tested my iPhone SE with higher scores. Then tested my brand new iPod , that I thought was defective. Slightly higher CPU score. Lower Compute score. Started the battery test ( using the 3hr version ) with a fully charged battery. The app read it at 99% at start. I tried comparing scores, but the gen 6 iPods listed were of the last update and Mine is 10.3.3. (Afraid to update due to problems after installing on two iPhones) Also, those work percentages showed fairly straight lines for work %. Mine show less work load. Can you help me interpret? How skewed could the results be! And would the score be considered High or Medium? Thank you.
I ran the Full Discharge for the battery test all day. I started with a full charge and checked the score when my battery was at 2%. However, the test didn’t run even though I observed it commence. What happened? Why did it not run?

Thanks for reaching out to us, and I'm sorry for the delayed responses.
@Arkoprava, Lower than expected scores can be caused by a variety of issues, including running a benchmark while substantial processes are running in the background. They can also be caused by hardware or software issues. If you believe that your battery performance may be impacted by these issues, I recommend running 3-4 CPU benchmarks over several days. If your scores are consistently low, or if you experience other issues that you believe are related to your battery, we recommend taking your device to a local Apple Store for inspection and potential servicing.
@Dee, Could you let me know if your device's screen was turned off or if Geekbench 4 was not in the foreground for any part of the battery benchmark? Your screen must be on and Geekbench 4 must be in the foreground for the duration of the battery benchmark for a result to be produced. If that is not the cause of this problem, could you let me know how the battery benchmark finished (e.g. did the device turn off after discharging, or did something else like closing the app, charging the device, or tapping "Stop" cause it to end)?
@Anna, The Work % shown on the battery result graph indicates how much work your device was able to complete through each part of the battery benchmark. It is difficult to interpret the cause of the peaks and valleys without knowing more about your device, but this can be caused by having substantial processes running in the background while running the battery benchmark. Your result would have Medium confidence, and a High confidence is only generated by Full Discharge tests. However, starting a battery benchmark from 99% has similar accuracy to starting one from 100%.
If you have any other questions, please let me know and I would be happy to help out however I can.
Installed Geekbench 4 and upon running the battery part I had to cancel the test due to time restrains. Other tests ran great and didn’t take too long. I noticed on your site it can take over and hour. May try that part another time.
