Google could finally bring iPhone-like battery health tracker for android phones
Android 14 is just around the corner and Google shared details about some of its features at the I/O 2023 last month
iPhone users have been able to track the health of their battery thanks to the software features that Apple added a few years back and soon Android users could also get a similar option which tells you the battery health of their device.
Android 14 is just around the corner and Google shared details about some of its features at the I/O 2023 last month.
Now, a keen observer and renowned tipster Mishaal Rehman has discovered elements of this battery health tool in Android 14 that could be part of the feature list when the version publicly rolls out later this year.
Mishaal had first noticed the traces of the feature with the new BatteryManager API that Google seems to have added in Android 14.
iPhone users have used the battery health metric to keep a track of their phone’s charging cycle and overall life.
Apple has even seen the perils of offering these details as many iPhone 6 and 6s users complained that their battery was degrading faster than usual.
We are hoping Android manages to offer all these details and help consumers determine the health of their device.
