iOS 14 Sends a Notification When Your Apple Watch is Fully Charged

iOS 14 is better about letting you know when your iPhone accessories are charged or need charging, and there is a new feature that sends a notification when a connected Apple Watch has finished charging.

The new charged notification is a useful feature for the Apple Watch's Sleep app, which lets users wear the Apple Watch at night for sleep tracking purposes.

The Apple Watch can't be charged while it's worn at night, of course, so after waking up, it will need to be placed on the charger if the battery is getting low. The notification feature will let users pull their Apple Watches off the charger as soon as charging is finished to go about their day.

Apple doesn't list the Apple Watch charging notification feature on its website, but it does highlight one other battery life notification for AirPods. When the AirPods battery begins to run low, iOS users will receive a notification letting them know that it's about time to charge.

There are dozens of other smaller features and tweaks in iOS 14, and we've got a list of everything interesting that we've found so far in our tidbits article.

Makes sense to receive AirPod and Watch charge notifications on-phone.
Could make a case for receiving phone and AirPod charge notifications on-watch.
And while we're here, why not global charge notifications across any devices tied to your AppleID (iPad, laptops, etc.)?

There is an app called Juice Watch, that will do what you want. It works well. I use it on my series 5.
