Android 14 has got us jumping with excitement! Not only can we expect a bucketload of exceptional features, but also a battery monitoring feature that’s going to be a game-changer! The latest APIs have let on that BatteryManager APIs could even show battery health details, manufacturing date, first use date, number of charging cycles completed, and charging policies. Can you believe it? Third-party apps can access some of these features ahead of the expected arrival of Android 14 later this year. Keep an eye out and get ready for the most awaited Android 14 battery monitoring feature with details that will thrill you!
Battery health monitoring apps have been around for years on the Play Store, providing estimates on battery health without any APIs to depend on. However, iPhone users have had the upper hand with a battery health monitoring feature in the settings app since iOS 11.3.
Now, Android users can also rejoice as third-party apps can access system APIs by granting the BATTERY_STATS Android permission via a command line interface and USB cable! Stay on top of battery health like never before with these groundbreaking capabilities.
