Apple patents new system that can predict when an iPhone will run out of battery


 Apple has been working on a new system, as per a recent patent filing. This new technology would help determine when an iPhone will run out of charge. The patent was filed with the US Patent & Trademark Office and was granted earlier this week.


According to a 9To5Mac report, the Cupertino based giant has patented a new system that can warn iPhone users on when their device is expected to run out. The patent is titled “smart advice to charge notification.” In other words, rather than aiding in saving the battery life as most other iOS features do, the new system is solely built to enable users to know how the battery of their iPhones will last during the day, which would be based on their recent usage.

At the moment, Apple users only get informed that the battery is low, once the device only has about 20 percent charge left. So, the new system would make the notification a lot more useful thanks to its personalized prompt. The company even gave an example where a user might have forgotten to charge their iPhone overnight and would receive a notification just before leaving for work the next morning.

For Mac users, a similar feature is already available, with the macOS showing the user the estimated battery life left. However, the patent details a more complex system, as it would also identify the user’s behaviour on different days of the week to adjust the battery alerts for each day accordingly. Furthermore, it would also work based on the user’s location, although, the company reinforces that the data would be processed and stored locally to preserve user privacy.
