iPhone 11 / Pro Max Uses New Hybrid Performance / Power Management As Battery Ages
The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max all have a new software and hardware system designed to help improve performance management.
That’s according to an Apple support document dedicated to Apple’s latest lineup of smartphones.
According to the document, Apple believes that the new power management system will provide the “best possible performance as battery aging occurs over time.” It’s also said to be “more advanced” than anything that is used in other, older devices.
As Apple has made clear of late, all lithium-ion batteries have a limited amount of time during which they can perform optimally. After that, they deteriorate and are unable to provide as much power over a prolonged period of time.
As a result, Apple makes provisions in all iPhones to help the battery remain performance. The new iPhones apparently take that up a notch.
The new built-in software and hardware system is automatic, always-on, and works to provide the best possible performance as battery aging occurs over time. iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max power needs are dynamically monitored, and performance is managed so that it can address these needs in real time. The system is more advanced than previous iPhone battery and power management systems and allows your iPhone to reduce performance impacts from battery aging.
Quite what has changed in these new iPhones isn’t clear, but all that really matters is the affect they have on the batteries within them. You can check the current state of your iPhone’s battery by opening the Settings app and going to Battery > Battery Health so long as you are running iOS 11.3 or later.
The new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max went on sale on September 20th and so far reviews and early user reports have been mightily impressive. Apple promises improved battery life from its new phones, and they certainly appear to be living up to that at the moment.
