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.

BatterySense is a free app that shows you what iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch functions you can use and for how long based on your device’s current battery charge. It also suggests ways to preserve battery life based on how long you need your battery to last.

The main screen prominently displays your current battery charge. Tapping a button shows you estimated time remaining for the most common activities, such as:
- Talk time (for iPhone)
- eBook reading
- Internet use
- Audio Playback
- Video playback
- Standby time
- Game play
- Time until fully charged

Want to see everything at a glance? The "clock icon" provides a detailed look at each activity and estimates for how much time is remaining for each.

The "battery simulation icon" 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.

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.

What's New in Version 2.0.0

The new 'Alert When Charged' feature lets you know when your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch is fully charged and ready to go. Choose from 5 custom alert tones.

The newly designed 'Charge Screen' provides a gorgeous display while charging your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Choose from three different display modes: Time Remaining Until Fully Charged, Digital Clock or Analog Clock. There's even a 'night mode' that dims the display while you sleep.

The new "Virtual Settings" panel is a great way to see which iOS settings cause the most impact to your battery life. Play with different setting configurations and find the perfect balance to get the extra battery life you need.
