At the beginning of this month of June, Apple made the presentation of its new software. If iOS 16 was the biggest announcement of this conference, the Apple brand did not forget to mention WatchOS, the operating system of its connected watch. A true health tracking product, the Apple Watch is used today by millions of people around the world.
Its popularity is such that the Apple Watch outsells the entire world of mechanical watches. With a new product every year, Apple develops its connected watch by always offering more sensors, features, screen size.
A function already present on the iPhone 11
So many things that lower the level of autonomy of the watch, to the point that this problem is the first obstacle to the purchase of an Apple Watch today (along with the price). So with WatchOS 9, Apple wants to work on this issue. The apple brand indeed offers a feature that allows you to recalibrate the battery of Apple Watch Series 4 and 5.
This recalibration should provide a more accurate idea of the battery’s maximum capacities. This feature, new to Apple’s connected watches, had already appeared in other Apple products in the past. It notably arrived on the iPhone 11 to give a better idea of the life of a battery.
Apple wants to make your devices last
This feature shows Apple’s ambitions in terms of device lifespan. While the Apple brand offers updates that are still available on older devices (iOS 16 is compatible with the iPhone 8), it is now focusing on battery life to give users a good idea. when it should be replaced.
As a reminder, an Apple Watch battery is announced as having a maximum autonomy of 18 hours for the latest model, the Apple Watch Series 7 released last year.
