    Hello all,
    Can’t find the below option in settings, battery. Article said it’s supposed to be in the new IOS13 for IPhone and IPAD.
    Don’t see it!
    Thanks, Ken

    If you normally charge overnight while you sleep, Optimized Battery Charging will keep your iPhone's battery at 80% for most of the night, finishing off the last 20% of charge right before your alarm goes off.

    To use the new features, go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health and turn it on.

    As already mentioned by Johanna, the iPhone iOS has a 'Battery Health' feature which is missing in iPadOS - however, the iPad's battery specs (i.e. health & cycle count) can be determine depending on what other hardware you may own - take a look at this recent thread and specifically post #6. Dave :)

    Thanks for the battery tips everyone. Can’t figure why they didn’t include that neat battery charge option in these small IPADS!!

    I’m not sure that feature is as useful on an iPad as it is on an iPhone.

    Most people use/charge their phones on a very predictable schedule. Also, the last 20% charge can be very quick, less than an hour.

    If you use an iPad like I do, the charging is unpredictable. It may be plugged in most of the day, or barely at all. I may forget to plug it in at night all together (though that’s rare). It also takes a lot longer to charge, which means that last 20% could take a couple of hours. I don’t have one of those overpowered fast chargers.

    The last thing I want is my iPad to hover at 80% charge, just because it thinks I probably won’t be using it for another two hours.

    You and others may use and charge your iPads on a more regular schedule. It’s even likely. In that case this feature might help. My heavy use of the iPad means I often need to charge it mid day. By habit, I plug it in whenever at home and not holding it.

    Just some thoughts on the subject, and some possible reasons it’s not as big a priority for iPads as iPhones (in Apple’s view).

    I’m not predictable at all really. Charging is really random for me.
