Disable optimized upload

To reduce battery wear, the iPhone learns from your daily charging habits and waits for the user to use it again to charge over 80%. The optimized loading , in fact, has been designed and introduced by IOS 13 to allow the battery to wear out as late as possible. Thanks to the artificial intelligence and our routine of using the smartphone, the latter will know when to complete the charge.

This explains why, in the vast majority of cases, the iPhone does not charge more than 80%. Our advice is not to disable this function, which helps the battery life. However, there may be a need to fully charge the iPhone at some point.

  • Open your iPhone Settings
  • Scroll until you find the Battery item and press on it
  • Continue on Battery status
  • Disable the Optimized Upload feature

Some advices

As mentioned earlier, in the vast majority of cases, optimized loading is the cause of the 80% charge block. However, the charge is also blocked in other cases, such as that linked to the smartphone overheating . In fact, when the iPhone reaches a critical temperature it goes into protection, stopping the charge to avoid damaging the battery.

Below, therefore, you will find some tips to avoid overheating the iPhone and restore the battery charging correctly.

  1. Usually, when charging, the iPhone tends to overheat, especially with fast charging . For this reason, avoid placing your smartphone in direct sunlight or near other heat sources, such as heating systems, appliances, or other electronic devices that may emit heat.
  2. If you have a cover “bulky” or little breathable, it is preferable to remove it during charging, to avoid overheating and, therefore, a charging block.
  3. It is important to always use original Apple accessories or at least compatible (and therefore recognized by the company). In fact, many times the poor quality of some products ( charging cables or chargers ) is underestimated , which could wear out the battery and, in the most serious cases, create malfunctions.
