Apple Watch will last longer. What’s the secret

It is difficult to say whether the approach of WWDC 2022 is to blame, but lately a lot of interesting insiders have begun to arrive about new operating systems and future Apple devices. Recently, details about iOS 16 and virtual reality glasses have become known, but if there is no clarity with the futuristic gadget yet, then there is already some data about the same Apple Watch. So, details about the autonomy of smart watches became known: it will definitely increase. As for why, that’s a completely different matter. In short: everything is in the best traditions of Apple. We tell what will change in the Apple Watch.

We tell you what changes await Apple Wacth in the near future

Autonomy Apple Watch

As you know, Apple watches are far from the benchmark for battery life. Many even consider their weak battery to be the main disadvantage, because of which they have to choose other smartwatches. It looks like it will end soon: Apple is planning increase Apple Watch battery life, but not at the expense of the battery, but by a software method. This is how watchOS 9 will introduce a power-saving mode that will allow your device to run some apps and features without using up a lot of battery – more on that informs Bloomberg editor Mark Gurman.

Apple will increase the battery life of its watch, but will not replace the battery

watchOS still has a Power Reserve mode that actually turns smartwatches into regular ones, cutting down on power and functionality. But soon that will change: the new power saving mode will remind save battery in iOS, and built-in applications will consume less resources than before. The added feature is part of Apple’s effort to improve Apple Watch battery life, which hasn’t changed in years. Based on these data, the battery will probably not physically increase soon, and Apple will fix all its jambs programmatically for a long time to come.

Save Apple Watch battery

When it comes to what’s new Apple Watch power saving mode will resemble the one in iOS, it is worth recalling how it all works. There are still a lot of questions, but there are practically no answers. For example, from Mark Gurman’s data it is not very clear how much will increase battery life from Apple. In the same iOS, when power saving is turned on, the screen turns off faster without activity, and performance also decreases. True, it is unrealistic to notice this when using ordinary applications: power limitations appear only when running heavy games and energy-intensive programs.

The iPhone’s power-saving mode helps a lot when minutes count.

Also power saving in iOS turns off background software updates and dims the backlight of the screen – you will immediately notice this when you activate the function. At the same time, experts believe that power saving is better to turn on immediately after removing the device from charging: if the iPhone will work normally with the function turned on, then there are still questions about the Apple Watch. The chip in them is much inferior in performance to the same iPhone, therefore, there is a possibility that the Apple Watch will not be as convenient in this mode.

Also, there are no answers about the future of notifications: will they be disabled in this mode? If yes, then for many smart watches in power saving mode will simply become useless, respectively, there is no point in innovations. Low application power consumption – always a serious limitation in functionality. How this will affect the Apple Watch – no one knows yet.

Why does the Apple Watch shrink quickly?

If we are not talking about battery wear, then Apple Watch doesn’t last long solely due to software settings. Most of all, of course, spend energy notifications. One of the main features of the Apple Watch kills the battery fastest, but notifications can be turned off or airplane mode activated, making the accessory standalone. What else to pay attention to extend the battery life of your Apple Watch?

Tired of frequently charging your Apple Watch? Disable something from the list

  • On power consumption in Apple Watch influence dials with animation and bright screensavers. Even though OLED screens are more economical, their colors are more saturated, resulting in faster burn-in.
  • Also worth noting Always On Display – a function that allows you to see the main data without activating the screen. It consumes extremely little energy, but if you rarely use your Apple Watch, it will run out even faster. Read more about it in our article.
  • Heart rate tracking on Apple Watch allows you to record daily activity data, but at the same time consumes up to 5% of the charge in the background.
  • Vibration and sounds from applications do not affect the functionality of the device, but consume up to 5% of the battery per day. Disable if not in use.
