Apple Watch now shows battery capacity

Apple Watch now shows battery capacity

A feature that was previously only available to iPhones.

For several years now, it has been possible to know approximately the “age” of your iPhone’s battery by going to the settings and checking its condition. The device then gives you a percentage of the battery capacity of your smartphone and tells you whether or not it is recommended to replace it. This function was, until now, reserved only for iPhone. But with the new watchOS 9 beta, Apple is bringing it to Apple Watches.

As specified in its Release Notes by Apple, “After updating to watchOS 9, your Apple Watch Series 4 or Series 5 recalibrates and then more accurately estimates its maximum battery capacity”. From now on, you will know if your Apple Watch is aging and if it deserves a short visit to the repair bench.

On the other hand, and this is more surprising, this novelty is only integrated into Watch Series 4 and 5. The Apple Watch SE and Series 6 are not affected, Apple probably considering that they are too recent only for require a battery overhaul.
