Increases the power of AirPods Pro from 80% to 100% without waiting forever. So here, How to fully charge your AirPods Pro more quickly.
Have you ever wondered why AirPods Pro battery level is almost always around 80%? This is because Apple will automatically enable a feature to reduce battery aging, so once the AirPods Pro’s battery is 80% full, it will significantly reduce the charging speed. If you’re in a rush to fully charge your AirPods Pro, there’s an easy way to bypass this feature.
Why does Apple slow down AirPods Pro’s charging speed?
Apple uses a feature called Optimized Battery Charging to improve AirPods Pro battery health. This feature can extend the battery life of AirPods Pro, which means you won’t be able to use the battery within a year after buy this product. It’s fine. However, when you leave the charger for a long time, it can also prevent the battery from charging at the rate you want. Not so good.
This feature may remind you of a recent lawsuit regarding Apple’s battery acceleration practices, but this is not an example of Apple doing evil. AirPods Pro uses lithium-ion battery technology (like almost all other consumer electronics products), and the limitation of this technology is that the battery capacity will decrease over time. There is no way to prevent the aging of these batteries, but there are ways to slow down the process. Apple’s solution enables optimized battery charging on AirPods Pro by default.
How to fully charge your AirPods Pro more quickly
If you need your AirPods Pro to fully charge quickly, try disabling Optimized Battery Charging. Please note that we definitely do not recommend permanently disabling this feature; If you turn it off, it is best to re-enable it after you need a quick charge so as not to unnecessarily shorten the battery life of your AirPods Pro.
However, if you are having difficulties and it is absolutely necessary to charge your AirPods Pro as soon as possible , you must do the following:
- Connect your AirPods Pro to your iPhone or iPad. (For most people, this involves taking your AirPods Pro out of the case and sticking them in your ears; they’ll usually connect to the iPhone or iPad automatically.)
- On the device, go to Settings > Bluetooth.
- Tap the i button next to AirPods Pro.
- Scroll down and disable Optimized Battery Charging.
- When you do this, you will see a pop-up on your iPhone asking you to confirm this action. You can select Turn Off Until Tomorrow to disable it temporarily, which is probably a good idea for the reasons outlined above. Or you can live dangerously and select Turn Off to disable Optimized Battery Charging permanently (until you turn it back on manually).
Once the AirPods Pro are fully charged, you can follow the same steps to re-enable optimized battery charging (or wait for it to restart automatically).
Note: This feature requires iOS 14.2 or iPadOS 14.2 or higher. You can check if you have the required version by going to “Settings”> “General”> “About” and looking at the number next to “Software version”. If you are using an older version of iOS or iPadOS, go to “Settings”> “General”> “Software Update” and update to a newer version of iOS.
