iPhone 15 Introduces New Battery Settings Option – The iPhone 15 series was unveiled last week, with major aesthetic and specification enhancements. The lightning port, which Apple has retained in its iPhone models since the iPhone 5, was replaced this year with a USB Type-C port.
Aside from that, the corporation is said to be adopting different battery settings for the newest model. Users of the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max will be able to limit the battery charge percentage to maximize battery lifespan.
This setting may improve battery health by lowering the maximum battery charge level to 80% rather than 100%. Furthermore, Apple is presenting the user with more information about the battery’s health.
During a Q&A session, The Verge’s Allison Johnson stated that all iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models running iOS 17 contain a new option in the Battery Health & Charging menu that, when activated, prevents the handset from charging past 80 percent. This menu is supposed to provide three options: Optimised Battery Charging, a limit of 80 percent, and none. You can get to it by going to Settings > Battery > Battery Health & Charging.
When your iPhone 15 hits 80 percent of full capacity, the new 80 percent limit option will prevent it from charging further. The new feature was identified in the iOS 17 beta code before.
In addition, for the first time, Apple is letting consumers view their device’s battery cycle count. According to Tipper Revegnus (@Tech_Reve), iPhone 15 users may now receive information such as the battery manufacture date, first usage duration, battery cycle count, and more by going to Settings > General > About in their device.
Charging a battery up to 80 percent is recommended to prevent overheating and to extend battery life, as the last 20 percent is claimed to consume more energy and generate more heat. This procedure is supposed to prolong the life of the battery.
It is nearly equivalent to the Optimised charge feature available on older iPhone models, which limits battery charge overnight. Similar functionalities are available on Samsung and OnePlus phones.
