New battery health management function macOS 10.15.5 Developer Beta 2 debut

Today Apple launched macOS 10.15.5 Developer Beta 2, which has a brand new feature called Battery Health Management, which can help improve battery health.

Factors affecting MacBook battery health

Macbooks use lithium batteries. Lithium batteries have a maximum number of charging times, so as the number of charging increases, the battery's power will be reduced and the MacBook's endurance will be reduced.

According to Apple's official instructions, the health of the battery is affected not only by time, but also by chemical factors, which are affected by temperature and charging habits.

How battery management functions work

The purpose of macOS's new battery management function is to reduce the chemical impact of the battery. The principle is to monitor the battery temperature and charging habits. After this function is enabled, macOS may reduce the number of charging times, and will not keep the battery in a charged state and reduce the battery temperature.
