If you own an iPhone or an iPad, you have certainly already used Siri to ask for information or to give commands. But Apple’s voice assistant can offer you much more. For example, you can ask it to notify you when your smartphone or tablet is fully charged.
Siri helps you preserve the iPhone battery
As you already know, it’s better to keep an eye on your smartphone’s battery. It is a very important element that you should not hesitate to pamper. For example, it is not advisable to leave your phone charging all night
Indeed, all devices equipped with a lithium-ion battery have a charging circuit that automatically cuts off the recharge when the battery is at 100%. But after a few minutes, the battery will go back under the threshold of 100% and thus re-trigger the charge. These mini cycles may affect the life of your iPhone battery.
In addition, there is the cost of electricity consumption related to a charger permanently connected. These electrical devices contain a transformer which, as their name indicates, will transform the voltage of the current of the socket (220 volts) of your home into a lower voltage (12 volts) compatible with tablets and smartphones.
Obviously a transformer consumes energy permanently. It is therefore better to remove the cable when the battery of the iPhone or iPad is full. This will avoid damaging the life of your battery and at the same time reduce your electricity bill.
