At its Let’s Lose event earlier this month, Apple introduced the new iPad Pro with the M4 chip and the iPad Air series with the M2 chip. The Cupertino company has reportedly added a new battery status menu to the 2024 generation tablets, similar to the iPhone 15 series.

This menu displays optimal charging settings and battery information. This allows users to control the battery percentage to extend battery life. With this setting, the battery charge can reach 80 percent and then 100 percent. The number of cycles is also displayed in the menu. Links to the battery status menu first appeared in the iPadOS 17.5 code.

Apple's New iPad Air

Dutch website iCulture (via Macrumors ) claims that the new iPad models released this month will include a battery status menu for the first time. You can access this in Settings > Battery > Battery health. The new option defines the number of charge cycles and maximum capacity and allows users to set a maximum charge limit of up to 80 percent to extend the life of the internal battery and reduce the risk of overheating and overcharging.

The battery status menu can display the date of manufacture and the date the battery was first used. This battery health feature is already available in the iPhone 15 series. The feature was reported to be in the iPadOS 17.5 beta code last month. This feature allows iPad users to check their maximum battery capacity without relying on third-party apps.

Apple introduced the iPad Air with the M2 chip and the iPad Pro with the M4 chip at last week’s Lets Loose event. The iPad Air was released in 10.9-inch and 13-inch Liquid Retina (LCD) displays. The iPad Pro has a tandem OLED display and is available in 11-inch and 13-inch sizes. All new models run on iPadOS 17.

The iPad Pro (2024) is priced at Rs 99,900 for the base model with an 11-inch screen. The iPad Air (2024) starts at Rs 59,900 for the 11-inch base model.
