iPhone 15 Users have a new option to extend their phone’s battery life – 80% charge cap limit.
People concerned about the health of their iPhone’s battery are trying to control every aspect of the phone to make the battery last longer. AppleInsider website reported that Apple has added a toggle function on all iPhone 15 models. Users simply need to go to “Settings”, “Battery”, “Battery Health & Charging”, and “Charging Optimization” on the mobile interface.) You will see three options.
The three options include “Optimized battery charging”, “80% charging limit”, and “None”.
If the user selects 80% charging limit, it will prevent the iPhone from charging more than 80% and will not allow the battery to charge 100%. This hard limit can extend iPhone battery life by reducing the time it takes for the battery to charge to full capacity.
In comparison, other iPhones currently have an “Optimized Battery Charging” setting that automatically stops charging when the iPhone’s power reaches 80%, and then resumes charging at 100% before the user wakes up. Gives.
Charging the battery from 0% to 80% is relatively efficient and consistent, but charging from 80% to 100% typically consumes more energy and produces more heat. This may cause some users to deliberately try to maintain battery power between 40% to 80% to prolong battery health.
Apple’s new feature in the iPhone 15 series allows users not to monitor the charging level of the battery, allowing the battery to automatically stop charging when it is 80% full.
However, the AppleInsider website recommends that users do not need to use the new option, but keep the “Optimized Battery Charging” option. This is because preventing the iPhone from charging beyond 80% will not provide much benefit, but it will not fully utilize the battery’s capacity, while only extending battery life by a few weeks. Furthermore, all batteries must eventually be replaced.
