Green energy at the push of a button: Apple is planning a special charging mode for the iPhone

Apple intends to introduce a way this year to charge iPhones using only renewable energy. However, clean energy charging will initially be available only in the USA.

the function is astonishing In a footnote to the iOS 16 press release First mentioned by Apple. It is set to appear in an update later this year along with other features of iOS 16 that have yet to be released. It aims to reduce the carbon footprint of the iPhone.

How Apple intends to ensure that only “clean energy” comes into the iPhone is still unclear. According to the description, the iPhone’s charging times should be optimized so that they fall at a time when the power grid has a surplus of energy from renewable sources such as photovoltaics or wind power. Apple will probably use data from network operators to find out when this is the case. It remains to be seen to what extent users will have to change their charging habits. Apple has been striving to be as carbon neutral as possible for years.

There will be other works in the course of the year ahead that are already known but not yet completed with version 16.0 of iOS. This includes iCloud Shared Photo Library, which makes it easier than ever for families of six to share photos with each other.

Live activities — lock screen notifications that update in real time, like sports scores — will also come only with the iOS update. This feature also plays a big part in the new displays around the camera cutouts of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. Using live activities, app developers can program new displays for the so-called Dynamic Island.
