We told you last month about a cool Apple Watch utility app called Power, and today it’s learning a convenient brand-new technique and becoming much more beneficial. Power, created in part by jailbreak developer Surenix, lets you check just how much battery power your iPhone has remotely from your Apple Watch. As I discussed previously, this is a practical utility as it’s not unusual to use the Apple Watch to remain on top of notices while the iPhone charges in another room.

Beginning with version 1.1, Power is including support for notices. This suggests you can charge your phone and understand when it hits certain percentages in case you’re awaiting that level to take it off the charger and head out the door.

Power also notifies you on your Apple Watch when your iPhone drops to particular levels so you don’t get surprised by a dead phone if you can assist it. Particularly, Power for Apple Watch alerts you within these ranges: 100 %, 95 %– 85 %, 55 %– 45 %, 25 %– 15 %, and 10 %– 0 %. The alerts aren’t extremely useful if you’re not utilizing an Apple Watch and more granular alternatives in the future would behave, however it can be turned off or on and it’s a great addition to the app in general as long as you’re using your Apple Watch.

You can toggle signals on and off within the Alerts area of the Settings app, obviously, and Power suggests leaving Background App Refresh on to make monitoring battery level and pressing signals out possible. While iOS sends out modal notifies for low battery at 20 % and under, those signals don’t bring over to the Apple Watch.

If you have an iPhone and an Apple Watch and either frequently utilize your Apple Watch in another room while your iPhone charges, or you simply desire to be able to capture low power cautions on your Apple Watch throughout the day, then take a look at Power on the App Store for $ 0.99.
