'APPLE’S next major iPhone update adds a clever way to make your battery last longer. It’s trying to solve a major problem for smartphones: batteries degrade over time, meaning you’ll get use out of a single charge. Your iPhone battery health is important, and Apple has invented a feature to help you look after it Alamy It can make a huge difference. Apple estimates that your iPhone battery holds 80% as much charge after two years compared to when it was new. One way of improving battery health is to avoid charging your phone to 100% and then leaving it on charge for a long period of time. This typically happens every single day if you charge your phone overnight – and it’s just not practical to wake up at 2am and unplug your iPhone. Leaving your iPhone on charge overnight isn’t great for battery health PA:Press Association So with the upcoming iOS 13 update, Apple is adding an optional feature called Optimised Battery Charging. “A new option helps slow the rate of battery ageing by reducing the time your iPhone spends fully charged,” Apple explains. “iPhone uses on-device machine learning to understand your daily charging routine so it can wait to finish charging past 80% until you need to use it.” Basically, the iPhone will learn your charging habits and then control your charging accordingly. Let’s say you charge your phone overnight and then unplug it at 7am. Apple’s machine learning will learn this habit, and then plan your charging schedule accordingly. So it will quickly charge your iPhone up to 80% overnight, and then trickle-charge the final 20% just before you wake up. This means that your phone wouldn’t be charged fully if you woke up at 4am. But it would generally improve your battery health over time – keeping your iPhone in good nick for longer. Replacing an iPhone battery currently costs £79, so it’s worth looking after it. The bad news is that iOS 13 doesn’t officially launch until September. However, you can get an early “test” version of it right now – just follow our guide below. \t \t\t \t\t\t iOS 13 supported devices revealed – which iPhone models can upgrade? \t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\tHere's the full list of iPhone models that can upgrade to iOS 13:\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t iPhone XS iPhone XS Max iPhone XR iPhone X iPhone 8 iPhone 8 Plus iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus iPhone 6s iPhone 6s Plus iPhone SE iPod touch (7th generation) \t\t \t \t How to get iOS 13 The beta version of iOS 13 is available for anyone to download right now. If you want to try iOS 13 beta then you can sign up on the   Apple Beta page  and register with your Apple ID. Then you’ll need to log in to the Beta Software Program and click on “Enrol” to sign up your iOS device. Then you need to download and install the configuration profile. The beta version of iOS will then be available in”Settings”, under “General” and then “Software Update”. The official iOS 13 update should be available for everyone in September and it is likely to launch alongside or just after the new 2019 iPhones. Don’t expect your phone to work perfectly with the beta version of any software as there will still be glitches that need to be resolved before the software is available to everyone. \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t \t\t \t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t MOST READ IN TECH \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tlosing face?\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tGenius app shows how you'll look when you're old - and celebs are loving it\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tNOT 'APPY\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tViral FaceApp app 'could put your photos in hands of strangers FOREVER'\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tWATCH THIS SPACE\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tLunar eclipse 2019 TONIGHT – start time for July's partial lunar eclipse\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tI-CONS\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tApple reveals new emoji coming to the iPhone – including sloth, swimsuit and falafel\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tHARD LANDING\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tHilarious Nasa footage reveals Apollo heroes falling over in low Moon gravity\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tBURIED TREASURE\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tMystery as human remains and treasure found in 'disease healing' cave\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t \t \t \t \t   Apple is rumoured to be launching the biggest iPhone ever  with an enormous 6.7-inch screen later this year.
