Apple Rolls Out macOS 10.15.5 With Battery Health Management Feature
Apple has released macOS Catalina 10.15.5 following the launch of IOS 13.5 last week. The new macOS features an update with the intention of improving the battery performances of MacBooks amongst bug fixes and other improvements.
The Battery Health Management feature comes with the goal of reducing the chemical aging of a MacBook’s battery. The feature will also extend the battery’s lifespan without compromising battery life.
Apple, commenting on the feature, revealed:
“The battery health management feature in macOS 10.15.5 is designed to improve your battery’s lifespan by reducing the rate at which it chemically ages.
“The feature does this by monitoring your battery’s temperature history and its charging patterns. Based on the measurements that it collects, battery health management may reduce your battery’s maximum charge when in this mode.
“This happens as needed to ensure that your battery charges to a level that’s optimized for your usage — reducing wear on the battery and slowing its chemical aging”.
