BatterySense App by Philips Shows You How To Improve Your iPhone/iPad Battery Life

Philips created this simple and intuitive app to help you get the most out of your device when you’re in between charges. By telling it what you need to do and for how long, BatterySense can recommend what settings to adjust to achieve more battery life while on the go.


The main screen prominently displays your current battery charge. Tapping a button shows you estimated time remaining for the most common activities including:

  • Talk time (for iPhone)
  • Internet calling (for iPod Touch)
  • eBook reading (for iPad)
  • Internet use
  • Audio Playback
  • Video playback
  • Standby time
  • Game play
  • Time until fully charged


The “What if” feature provides a fun and interactive way to see estimates for how much battery life you could achieve if you changed specific settings on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

Use the “What if” slider by dragging your finger to the battery level you would like to achieve, and let BatterySense make the best recommendations for how to achieve it.

The BatterySense app provides battery charge and remaining battery life estimates – some variances may occur depending on a combination of factors, including your battery’s age. BatterySense makes suggestions to preserve your battery life but doesn’t actually turn any settings on or off. You can follow BatterySense suggestions by simply browsing to your device’s Settings.
