iPhone 15 Maximum Capacity Feature
The upcoming iPhone 15 charging feature was recently uncovered within the iOS 17 Release Candidate code by enthusiasts at 9to5Mac. Currently, it remains inaccessible to users with iPhone 14 and older models that have received this new iOS update. There is uncertainty surrounding whether this feature will be exclusive to USB-C iPhones or if it will debut with the iPhone 15 series at its launch.
Once the stable version of iOS 17 becomes available on Monday, September 18th, it is expected that this feature will become accessible within the Battery settings menu.
With this new iPhone feature, users will have the capability to define the maximum charge level for their device. By configuring this limit, denoted as 75 percent in the Settings > Battery section, the next time the charger is connected, the iPhone will restrict charging to approximately 75 percent of its capacity. Users will receive a lock screen notification informing them of this. Conversely, if this feature is not activated, the iPhone will continue to charge up to its full capacity.

However, Apple is not the first one to bring this feature into the smartphone market, as rival Samsung had already bought this feature on its Galaxy smartphones to enhance the battery life.
