iOS 13 Hidden Feature
If you head to Setting > Battery > Battery Health, you’ll see an option Optimised Battery Charging. This is the hidden feature in iOS 13, which shall help in improving your iPhone’s battery life and performance. It is more of a software oriented process which ensures that your iPhone’s battery lasts longer than before.
What is Optimised Battery Charging?
It is a technique, which prevents your iPhone from charging more than 80%. The Li-ion battery used in iPhones, can easily charge up-to 80% without any struggle. But with continuous charging over night, thought the battery isn’t charging, there is energy flow. When you keep your iPhone for charging over night, it quickly charges to 100% early in night. Later, over the night, it ensures that 100% charge is maintained.
While, with Optimised Battery Charging, your iPhone will not charge more than 80%. And with the smart artificial learning added to iOS 13. Your iPhone will analyse when you need to use your iPhone based on your past usage and keep it charged at that time.
For example, if you get up at 6 am and use your iPhone and put it to charge at around 10 pm. Your iPhone will be charged up-to 80% and stay at 80%. Right before 6 am, it will be charged up-to 100%. This ensures you getting a completely charged iPhone while at the same time safety of your battery is maintained.
