a tool to charge your iPhone with less carbon footprint

Apple has been working for several years on its image as a company concerned with ecology and the environment: Campus which runs on 100% renewable energy, verification of the supply circuits of its components and raw materials, reduced packaging and with the less plastic possible…

Apple is working on its green corporate label

Large companies like Apple are in any case encouraged to invest in ecological actions by a number of states, under penalty of financial penalties… Things are more specific for Apple, which has been working on this label for several years and presents it as one of the pillars of its philosophy…

The brand will soon deploy a new feature under iOS 16 with holders ofiPhone et iPad which should allow you to charge your device more responsibly. The idea is to reduce the carbon footprint of the brand’s smartphones and tablets.

This is a “clean energy charging” function that will be deployed in the USA as a priority. The option should thus optimize charging times to more precisely target the times when the network uses cleaner energy sources.

An option to target renewable energies

To do this, iOS 16 has a module that collects data that concerns CO2 emissions from local load balancing authorities located near the user’s location. This data is shared by the Ministry of Energy and energy distributors.

Depending on weather conditions, the network thus distributes more or less green energy: the intermittency of photovoltaic and wind power production thus implies variations throughout the day. These renewable energies are generally not stored and distributed directly on the network without the user currently being able to be informed.

Things will therefore change with iOS 16, which will modulate charging according to this index. You should see your iPhone charge faster when the network offers green electricity, receive notifications encouraging you to plug in at the most opportune times, or see your device limit its charge to 80% if the energy distributed on the network is not renewable.

The iPhone 14 incorporates a larger battery than previous models, so it could be that Apple has considered this option for a long time.
