In the sixth beta version of iOS 14.5, Apple introduced a recalibration process of the battery health reporting system on the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max to solve the problem of inaccurate battery health estimates. for some users.
Apple said this process may take several weeks to complete, and it has been two weeks since the sixth beta version of iOS 14.5 was released, and some users have started to see the battery health percentage adjusted. 9to5Mac writer Benjamin Mayo tweeted that in relation to the new product, the maximum battery capacity of his iPhone 11 Pro has increased from 86% to 90%, and the 8-bit technology website has added the results from other users.
Apple stated in a support document that this incorrect battery status report error does not reflect the actual status of the iPhone battery, so the recalibration process should resolve the issue. According to Apple, symptoms of this error include unexpected battery drain or, in some cases, reduced peak performance.
Although the battery health reporting system is recalibrating, users will see “important battery messages” in settings> batteries> Battery operations, but the maximum capacity percentage displayed during recalibration will not change. When the process is completed, the new percentage will appear and the message will be deleted.
In some cases, recalibration may not be successful and a new battery service message will appear. According to Apple, if this happens, the Apple Authorized Service Provider can replace the battery for free to restore its full performance and capacity, but the company assures that it will not pose a safety hazard to customers.
iOS 14.5 has been beta-tested for over two months and may be released next week. Apple will host a virtual event at 10 AM PST on April 10 (Tuesday) and will announce the new iPad Pro and other announcements.
