watchOS 10: Optimized Charge Limit to More Watch Models

Apple/ MacRumors

Apple released a new battery function for the Apple Watch Ultra with watchOS 9 called Optimized Charge Limit. This feature makes use of on-device machine learning to assess your daily usage and dynamically establish a maximum charge limit for your watch. Apple Watch Ultra is only compatible with watchOS 9. But that was back then. Now, we should look at a brand-new feature thanks to the watchOS 10.

The Optimized Charge Reduce feature is an expansion of the Optimized Battery Charging function. How does it work?

It delays completely charging your battery until just before your smartphone anticipates you to require your Apple Watch. This is done in order to reduce the amount of battery deterioration that can occur as a result of overcharging. Furthermore, that is enhanced by the Optimized Charge Limit, which estimates how much battery life you are likely to require on any given day and then restricts charging to a level that is sufficient for meeting those projections. Quite impressive, isn’t it?!

And there’s more!

After connecting to a charger, you have the option to manually override a scheduled Optimized Charge Limit by pressing the open charging symbol on your device and selecting the “Charge to Full Now” option from the menu that appears.

What are your thoughts about the way Apple manages its watchOS development?

watchOS 10, which is now available as a beta for developers and will be released to the public later this year, so don’t worry about it! It is expected to bring the Optimized Charge Limit feature to new Apple Watch models, including the Apple Watch Series 6, Series 7, Series 8, and Apple Watch SE.

There is little doubt that the function will be supported by any new models that are introduced later on in this year alongside the general availability of watchOS 10.
