The iPhone 15 Shows Us More About Battery Life

Last week, the iPhone 15 series was introduced by Apple, and now early reviewers are beginning to test the device. Apple consistently introduces numerous alterations to iPhones and iOS each year, although not all of these changes are explicitly announced. Early users have the opportunity to thoroughly explore the phone and uncover all the newly added features. It appears that Apple caught wind of Android’s intention to offer comprehensive battery health information and, in response, took it a step further with the iPhone 15 series to enhance their offering.

Reviewers of the new iPhone 15 have found that you can now check more details about your battery right on the phone. With iOS 17, go to Settings and then Battery to see your battery’s manufacturing month, month of first use, and number of charge cycles. This extra information is only available on iPhone 15 models.

Previously, iPhones could only show the battery’s general “health” as a percentage. But it didn’t provide specifics like how old the battery is or how many times it has been charged. Now iPhone 15 users get these extra stats so they know more about their battery’s condition over time.

Android phones currently don’t offer any easy way to check battery life details. However, future Android versions will start to support these features. Android 14 introduced new tools to provide data like manufacturing date and charge cycle count. Android 15 should allow apps to access and display this information for users. But it may take until Android 16 for all Android phones to reliably support comprehensive battery checks.

The iPhone 15 is setting the standard early by giving people more visibility into their battery’s lifespan. This helps iPhone owners better understand their battery and when it may need replacing. With innovative features like these, the iPhone 15 series continues Apple’s trademark of refining each new smartphone release.
