The iOS 16.1 beta released to developers today introduces a new Clean Power Charging feature, designed to help iPhone users reduce their carbon footprint.


Available in the Battery section of the Settings app, Clean Energy Charging selectively charges when low-carbon electricity is available with the aim of providing a greener charging method.

Apple says the ‌iPhone‌ will always reach a full charge before it’s needed based on the user’s daily routine, and the feature can be turned off if desired. It is enabled by default.

Apple first mentioned the Clean Energy Charging feature with the launch of iOS 16, adding it as an option in the future.
