How to get the app
TELUS Device Checkup is available on iOS devices (running iOS 8+) and Android devices (running Android 4.4 and up). Visit Google Play from your mobile device to download today. Available soon on the Apple App Store.
Using the app
The first time you open TELUS Device Checkup on your device the app will ask you to allow Data Usage Access in the device settings. This is needed to run diagnostic tests.
You can select the categories you want to test (Battery, Storage, Connectivity, Data, Device) by checking or unchecking the boxes on the start-up screen. It is recommended to select all the categories as your issue could have solutions in a number of categories. If you have selected the "Battery" test, a battery drain test will occur, maximizing vibration, flashlight and screen brightness to determine if your battery is performing normally.
When the tests are complete, you can view recommendations in each category and apply any changes you’d like.
You can tap the Start New Test button to restart from the beginning.
