To understand more about the battery unit, iPhone and iPod users could check their battery health within Settings. If you have the 'Optimised Battery Charging' function activated, the iPhone may charge slowly after reaching 80% power to prevent battery ageing. According to the company, iOS also learns users' charging habits. "Optimised Battery Charging is engaged only when your iPhone anticipates being connected to a charger for an extended period of time," it explains.
Notably, information on users' charging routines is solely retained on your iPhone, and it is not included in backups or shared with the firm.
