The process that will facilitate the new version of the system will take place during normal load cycles and could take “weeks”
The next iOS update will try to recalibrate the battery in iPhone 11 phones to fix discharge and performance issues, with a process that could take several weeks.
Users of iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max devices, after updating to iOS 14.5 version, will be able to find a battery health system that will recalibrate the maximum capacity of this component and its maximum performance capacity.
This system will allow to solve some of the faults that have affected the most users of these iPhone models, such as unexpected behavior in the discharge of the battery or reduction of the maximum performance, as stated by Apple in its Support page.
The recalibration process performed during normal charging cycles could take “weeks,” as the company indicates. While it is running, the user will see a message in the Battery settings, under Battery Health, which will be removed once complete.
Apple notes that “when the recalibration is complete, the percentage of maximum capacity and the capacity of maximum performance are updated.” In the event that the battery shows a significant degradation, a message will appear indicating this and offering a service.
It may also happen that the recalibration fails. In this case, the battery is still working, it is not a health problem, but it may require a change by an authorized Apple supplier. This change would be free.
