iOS 16.1 has added a Clean Energy Charging feature to help you reduce your carbon footprint ...

Apple announced that it would soon begin developing a new Clean Energy Charging feature for iPhone on iOS 16.1. As usual, it now has a beta of iOS 16.1 that will be available to developer beta testers. This includes a fresh Clean Energy Charging option.

The Clean Energy Charging option can be found by heading to the Settings app and clicking on the Battery menu. From there, choose the Battery Health and Charging option and look for the Clean Energy Charging toggle.

If less carbon emission electricity is available, iPhone will help you lower your carbon footprint by selectively charging. iPhone learns from your daily charging routine so it may reach full charge before you need it.

In the first iOS 16.1 beta, the Clean Energy Charging toggle was enabled by default, irrespective of whether or not it is true for everyone. It''s also possible that Apple change its mind by the time iOS 16.1 is available to everyone and disables it by default.

The Settings page relates to a support article on an Apple website, but the support article isn''t yet available. Apple expects it to be published until iOS 16.1 officially opens to the public later this autumn.
