How to calibrate the battery on the iPhone 11

If you have an iPhone 11 in any of its versions (dry 11, 11 Pro or 11 Pro Max) you may have noticed that the autonomy of your device is not what you would expect . You should know that you are not alone and that Apple itself has detected the problem and has also proposed a solution that in many cases puts an end to the problem.

Apparently the problem is not in the battery itself, but in the autonomy estimate that iOS makes of the amount of remaining power. When calculating this estimate, the software detects a much lower power capacity than is actually in the battery. For this reason, Apple promises a solution with a simple software update and along the following lines we explain how you can apply it.

Improve the autonomy of the iPhone 11 with a software update

Apple has taken advantage of a recent update of iOS 14 to apply this correction in the measurement of the battery capacity of the iPhone 11, so if you have already installed iOS 14.5 or higher the patch will be applied and you have probably already noticed the improvement in Battery. Otherwise you must do the following:

  1. Access the Settings app and once inside go to the General section – Software update.
  2. Tap on Download and Install and follow the steps to apply the new version of the operating system.
  3. When the update has finished and the device is available for use again, access the Settings app again and this time go to the Battery – Battery health section.
  4. Once inside you will see a section that Apple has called “Important information about the battery”. In this message the company informs that the recalibration process has begun and that it will take several weeks.

If you want to know more about the recalibration process, you can tap on the “More information” button just below the message and you will access a page on Apple’s website where they explain the whole process.

After taking the previous steps, the last thing you should do is arm yourself with patience. The recalibration process, as Apple indicates in its note, takes “several weeks.” According to the experience of many iPhone 11 users who applied the patch some time ago, the process usually takes about two weeks , although it will always depend on your charging habits, how you use the device, etc, etc …

When the whole process is finished and you return to the Battery Health section in Settings, the message should have disappeared and the battery health percentage should already be well adjusted. In addition, you should notice an improvement in the autonomy of the same.

In the event that after this recalibration you consider that the battery life is still too low for the use you make of the device and the number of charge cycles it has supported , you can check with Apple support to find out if it is necessary to change. the battery for a new one.
