A new Apple patent describes an intelligent alert system to allow you to charge the smartphone always at the best time of the day or, if necessary, to issue you an alert if you forget it. For this, the iPhone 13 or any future iPhone will be able to calculate the charge at a given time of the day according to scenarios.

What if tomorrow your iPhone 13 or later iPhone model managed battery charge and charging times like a personal assistant? It is in short what a new Apple patent offers. For now, at best, iPhones like their Android competitors just display an alert when the battery drops below a certain level.

However, the problem is that ityour notification falls too often at the wrong time, precisely when you are going to need a maximum of autonomy. They do not in any way prevent situations in which you are going to get stranded. This is where future smart charging notifications can make a difference.

IPhone 13 will manage charging as a personal assistant

The idea is to only deliver notifications when it is really necessary., so as not to annoy the user – but also to deliver them in anticipation of a usually more intense use. According to the patent, the iPhone could continuously analyze your usage and location habits.

The patent explains “For any given day of the week, a user’s load routines turn out to be very predictable”. And to continue: “For example, Monday through Friday, a user can charge her computer system when she arrives at work at 8:30 am and then reload her computer system when she goes to bed around 10:00 pm”.

However “If the computer system notifies a user to recharge at a fixed value of 10% remaining charge, and it is determined that the user usually charges around 10:00 pm and it is 10:00 pm and the level of load is 30%, user will not receive notification“.

The patent specifies that “If analysis of current and stored load data indicates that the user will not reach their next high probability load opportunity without exhausting all energy, the computing device may advise recharging via a notification around 22:00, even if the current charge is above the threshold set at 10%“.
