Apple has added a calibration tool to the beta version of iOS 14.5 that will eliminate battery health errors in iPhone 11s.
The battery of devices that fail battery calibration will be replaced free of charge.
Apple is preparing to add a battery calibration feature to some smartphones with the iOS 14.5 update. With this move, the company from Cupertino aims to recalibrate the battery health reporting system of the iPhone 11 series and eliminate the battery problems experienced by users.
The feature included in the sixth beta version of iOS 14.5 will be available for a limited number of devices, including iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The calibration tool will recalibrate the maximum battery capacity and the highest performance capability in the devices to address the “wrong guess” issue some users face in the battery health reporting system.
Battery will be replaced free of charge if calibration fails
Note that the error in the battery health report system can cause problems such as unexpected battery drain and decrease in peak performance efficiency. Apple says the recalibration of maximum capacity and peak performance capability occurs during normal charging cycles and may take several weeks.
When the calibration is complete, the maximum capacity percentage and the highest performance capability will be updated. If it fails, a service message will appear in the Settings> Battery> Battery Health menu. After this stage, users will be able to change the battery of their smartphones free of charge by contacting an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
