iOS 11.2 Beta Update Brings New Battery Health Feature

Battery life has always been a controversial issue for iPhone users. Users have been complaining about it for years, and it appears that Apple intends to focus more on this aspect. This thing is proved by the latest addition that will come with iOS 11.3.

The new feature is named Battery Life and it will appear in the Battery section of the Settings app. Normally, this page should show you if the battery is operating at peak capacity and you will see which is the maximum capacity. However, there are some other aspects as well.

Power management

Many users are not happy with the latest change since it does come with something less pleasant. When the battery of your iPhone is not operating at peak capacity you will see a message in the Battery Health section: “Your battery’s health is significantly degraded. An Apple Authorized Service Provide can replace the battery to restore full performance and capacity.”

“Additionally, users can see if the performance management feature that dynamically manages maximum performance to prevent unexpected shutdowns is on and can choose to turn it off. This feature is enabled only after an unexpected shutdown first occurs on a device with a battery that has diminished ability to deliver maximum instantaneous power. This feature applies to iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus.”

Obviously, users were not happy with when they also discovered that Power management will be automatically enabled if the iPhone shuts down unexpectedly. Apple did not respond to the criticism. Instead, the company reduced the price of an iPhone battery replacement to $29 from $79. This new move does look like a strategy to gain more money, and it is hard to tell if users will accept it.
