Available only in macOS, the nifty coconutBattery app lets you monitor your device's battery with a glance. It shows the current charge, full-charge capacity and design capacity of the MacBook, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. It also keeps track of the charge cycle count so you know not to over-charge your device.

Plug in your iPhone or iPad to any Mac running coconutBattery and you will be able to gather the same information about your iOS device.
