Apple's iPhone 11 series has new power management for smooth operation as battery ages

The latest iPhone 11 series which comprises of iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, comes with a new power management system that has new built-in software and hardware setup. This new system is going to make the phones less susceptible to battery-related performance issues over time.

The iPhone 11 series smartphones include a new battery management system which is always on and dynamic, Apple said in its latest support document.

“iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max power needs are dynamically monitored, and performance is managed so that it can address these needs in real time. The system is more advanced than previous iPhone battery and power management systems and allows your iPhone to reduce performance impacts from battery aging.” the company said.

To recall, iPhone’s performance throttling issues had caused a huge uproar back in 2017, when Apple was accused to deliberately slow down its older devices even though the purpose of the feature was to prevent the phone from unexpected shutdowns and help the older iPhones to last longer. The lack of proper communication of the feature had led the iPhone-maker to discount the replacements of batteries for 2018.

Back then, Apple had said that the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X had the hardware of power management and now it seems that the iPhone 11 series internals will take it a step ahead.

However, even though the performance impacts are reduced as much as possible, the battery aging of iPhone 11 might still lead to noticeable effects. The battery will still degrade just like all other phone batteries just that process is likely to be slower.

Apple says that poor battery health of the iPhone 11 series might result in longer app launch times, lower frame rates, reduced mobile data throughput, as well as lower backlight brightness and speaker volume.
