I like keeping track of the battery of my devices to ensure they are always up and ready whenever I need them. I use my iPhone to track the battery of my Apple Watch. But unfortunately, watchOS lacks the feature to let users check iPhone’s battery life from Apple Watch.

However, there is no reason to feel disappointed! There are quite a few battery saver apps that allow you to keep a tab on your iPhone’s battery from your smartwatch.

How to Check iPhone’s Battery Life from Apple Watch

We have found four apps: Power ($0.99), MacID ($3.99), Battery Life (free), and Battery Watcher (free) very efficient and easy-to-use. You can choose any of these apps.

Step #1. Launch App Store and search Power or Battery Life on your iPhone.

Step #2. Once you have successfully installed the app, open Apple Watch app on your iPhone.

Though it’s easier to check iPhone’s battery life using a third-party app, it would be better if there was an inbuilt feature in watchOS for it. What’s your take on it? Shoot your views in the comments!

  1. This feature should have been built into IOS. Further to this I feel it’s essential that Apple focuses on these features,

    1. Why do you have a seperate Apple Watch App to use Apple watch App? It should be integrated into one of the quick views you bring up with gestures.

    2. The iphone should show more information about the Apple Watch in this view: chronological BPM and activity measurements (graphical)

    3. Battery and usage of the watch graphical. May be ETA to next charge for both devices on either.
