With the launch of the iPhone 12, Apple has introduced a new feature called “Battery Share” that allows you to charge your iPhone using another iPhone. This feature is handy when you’re running low on battery and don’t have access to a power outlet. In this article, we’ll discuss how to use Battery Share on your iPhone 12.
Step 1: Check Compatibility
Before you start using Battery Share, make sure that both iPhones are compatible with this feature. Battery Share is only available on iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Make sure that both devices have enough battery power to initiate the process.
To use Battery Share, you need to enable it on your iPhone. Go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health > Battery Sharing and toggle on the switch next to “Share Battery with other devices.” Once you turn on Battery Sharing, your iPhone will start broadcasting a signal that other devices can detect.
Step 3: Connect the iPhones
Once you have enabled Battery Share on your iPhone, you need to connect it to the other iPhone that you want to charge. To do this, hold the two iPhones close together, and a notification will appear on the screen of the other iPhone that says, “Share your battery with [Your Name’s] iPhone?” Tap on “Continue” to initiate the process.
Step 4: Start Charging
Once you have connected the two iPhones, the battery icon on your iPhone will turn green, indicating that it’s charging. Keep the two iPhones close together until your iPhone has enough charge. You can monitor the charging status by swiping down from the top-right corner of the screen to access the Control Center.
