iPhone Charging Hack: Powering Up Your iPhone with Another iPhone

But how do you charge it? How do I know which iPhone will transfer battery power to another one? To charge one iPhone with another, the first thing you need is a cable with a USB-C to USB-C connection. Connect each cable end to an iPhone and watch how these two iPhones automatically communicate to know which one has a lower battery percentage and therefore will start charging the one that needs a battery boost.

For example, if your iPhone has 35% battery life and you connect it to your company's iPhone with 80% battery, you’ll see on your iPhone's dynamic island that the 35% battery has started charging. That’s all there is to it!

And there’s more! Thanks to this USB-C connector on the iPhone 15, you can also charge other Apple devices such as your AirPods or Apple Watch. Just as it was already possible to charge your iPhone with your iPad, in this case regardless of whether it has USB-C or not. And if a friend or family member has an Android device with USB-C, you can also charge it with your iPhone.

If you thought the Apple devices already had long-lasting batteries, now, with the possibility of playing with this extra charge between them, you can extend battery life even more. Incredible, right?
