How to Share Battery on iPhone
Assuming you have the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, you can share your battery with other devices using the new feature called Battery Share. To do this, simply go to Settings > Battery and tap the Share Battery button. A list of available devices will appear and you can select the one you want to share your battery with.
When someone else is sharing your battery, a blue bar will appear under the device’s name in the Share Battery menu. The amount of battery power that’s being shared is also displayed. If you want to stop sharing your battery, just tap the Stop Sharing button.
What is Battery Sharing?
When you enable Battery Sharing on your iPhone, you can share your power with other devices. This feature is handy when you’re running low on battery and need to charge another device, like your Apple Watch. To turn on Battery Sharing, open the Settings app and tap “Battery.” Then, tap the toggle next to “Battery Sharing” to turn it on.
Once Battery Sharing is enabled, you can use your iPhone to charge other devices by connecting them to your iPhone with a Lightning cable. Your iPhone will show a notification when another device is charging from its battery. To check the status of the charge, simply look at the battery icon in the status bar. When the other device is fully charged, your iPhone will notify you again.
How to Use Battery Sharing
If you have an iPhone with a battery that needs to be replaced, you may be able to take advantage of the battery-sharing feature. This feature allows you to share your battery with another iPhone user who also needs a new battery. Here’s how to use battery sharing:
- Make sure both iPhones are turned on and unlocked.
- Open the Settings app on both iPhones.
- Tap on Battery > Battery Sharing.
- Select the iPhone that you want to share your battery with from the list of devices.
- Follow the prompts on both phones to confirm that you want to share your battery.
- Once the process is complete, the other iPhone will have access to your battery power and will be able to use it as needed.
How to Set Up Battery Sharing
If you have two iPhones, you can share your battery with the other phone. Here’s how:
- On one of the phones, go to Settings > Battery and tap Add New Device.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to pair the two phones.
- Once the pairing is complete, tap Share Battery and select the other phone from the list of devices.
- The other phone will now display a battery icon next to its name, indicating that it is receiving power from the first phone.
How to Share Battery on Multiple Devices
If you have multiple devices that need to be charged, you can use the battery-sharing feature to share power between them. To do this, connect the devices together with a Lightning cable or 30-pin cable. Then, open the Settings app on one of the devices and tap “Battery.” From here, select “Battery Sharing” and choose the device that you want to share power with. The other device will then receive power from the first device’s battery.
