IOS 11.2 Beta Update Brings New Battery Health Feature

This $0.99 app will give you access to the CPU frequency of your iPhone's processor. It doesn't seem to matter how many record-breaking quarters the iPhone maker strings together; the talk on Wall Street always seems to return to the inevitable talk of "peak iPhone". According to The Verge, "If the device has experienced a shutdown due to battery degradation - which could happen with a given battery health of as high as 95 per cent - the page will tell you that "performance management has been applied to prevent this from happening again" along with the option to disable the throttling". The iPhone X, which has a slightly more advanced camera subsystem, achieved a score of 97 in DXOMark's battery of tests. Some users have also reported that, with the new beta version, they've actually had a few gigabytes of storage returned to them.

The reason Apple has gone for this feature is that irrespective of the iPhone model, the battery will be lose its capacity to hold charge over time.

When this maximum capacity is under 80 percent, a message shows up on the screen indicating that the battery has "significantly degraded", accompanied by a link explaining how to get the iPhone serviced.

There you will see your battery's current health, as well as a description of how its health impacts performance. In line with what the company told customers previous year, Apple's Public Policy Vice President Cynthia Hogan reiterated to Thune that the upcoming iOS 11.3 update will give users "greater visibility into the health of their iPhones". Click on this to find out more about your battery. For now, this update only applies to the iPhone SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, 7, and 7 Plus.

Power management will be disabled on all devices when the iOS 11.3 beta is installed, but if an iPhone experiences an unexpected shutdown, power management will automatically be turned on.

An important thing to note here is that Apple also said that all iPhones contain basic performance management features necessary for safety and to protect the components inside the phone.
