Available in the Battery section of the Settings app, Clean Energy Charging selectively charges when low-carbon electricity is available in an effort to provide a greener charging method.

Apple claims that the “iPhone” will still reach a full charge before it is needed based on a user’s daily routine and the feature can be disabled if desired. It is enabled by default.

Apple first mentioned the Clean Energy Charging feature with the launch of iOS 16, adding it as an upcoming option.
