iOS 18 will show the time even with the iPhone out of battery

Apple Watch battery saving

After the official presentation at WWDC and the first Beta was published, users have discovered a new functionality that Apple did not present last Monday. And iOS 18 further expands what your iPhone can show you when it runs out of battery. Now, Even if your iPhone has run out of charge and is turned off, you will be able to see the time on the screen in the same way that Apple did a long time ago with the Apple Watch.

The change has been Spotted by a user on Reddit and it means nothing other than, as its name indicates, you will always be able to see the time displayed in the status bar of your iPhone. This function already existed previously on the Apple Watch, which can also show you the time even after the battery runs out, although the Cupertino smartwatch does so by displaying it large on the device's screen. Something logical, in the end, is a watch and its main function.

This change occurs after iOS 15 Apple already added support for locating an iPhone through Find My even if the iPhone is out of battery or has been turned off intentionally.

Although it may seem like a minor change at first glance, It will be useful for people who are away from home when their iPhone dies. No more asking a stranger on the street about the time. He no longer suffered from having a low battery when leaving the house and not being able to know the time.
