iPhone 15 Comes With Battery Charge Limitation! So How Will It Work?
The iPhone 15 series, which was introduced the other day, comes with a battery charge limitation feature to preserve battery life. Here are all the details about the new feature!
The iPhone 15 series has finally been unveiled, and just as the rumors predicted, they both come with a USB-C port instead of Lightning. That means users will finally be able to use the same cable to charge their iPhone, iPad and Mac, but there’s something else Apple may not have told us.
9to5Mac has found evidence that the iPhone 15 will have an option to limit the maximum battery charge.
iPhone 15 will have the option to limit battery charge
Based on code included in the iOS 17 version released for developers on Tuesday, Apple has developed a new feature that will allow users to limit the maximum battery charge to better protect battery health. When available, the option will be found in the battery settings menu.
When the feature is turned off, users will see a message stating that the iPhone will “charge to full capacity”, but when the feature is turned on, it will inform the user that the battery will “only charge about X%”. The system will also show when the iPhone was last charged to the limit set by the user.

This feature works similarly to the “Optimized Battery Charging” feature, which learns the user’s daily routine and finishes charging the battery so that it only exceeds 80% when the user removes the iPhone from the charger, but the new option will always limit charging to a specific battery level.
A similar feature is already available on some Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy. This is because charging a lithium-ion battery to 100% causes it to age faster, so phone makers add features that limit charging in some cases. So users can sacrifice battery life to make the component last longer.
Many iPhone 14 Pro users complain that the device’s maximum battery capacity drops quite quickly. Perhaps this has prompted Apple to introduce an option that would allow users to better manage their iPhone’s battery.
