It’s not about being lazy, but sometime we just don’t feel like stretching any muscles while having some ‘me’ time on Mac. But then you end up losing your Internet because you iPhone ran out of battery and it was being used as a hotspot. But thankfully, with just a few tweaks you can check the battery status directly from your Mac.
Fortunately, you don’t need to tether your iPhone to check its remaining battery. In fact, you don’t even need to enable Personal Hotspot. All you need to do is use the same iCloud account on your Mac and iPhone and have Bluetooth enabled. Below are some easy steps using which you can perform to check iPhone battery from Mac:
- Hold down Option key on your keypad and click the Wi-Fi icon in Mac’s menu bar.
- Wait for your iPhone to show up under the Personal Hotspot section.
- As soon as your iPhone appears, you can have a lump sum idea about remaining battery life by looking at your iPhone line that also shows the signal strength.
- Drag your mouse pointer over your iPhone line, a small box pops up that shows the accurate percentage of the battery life you’ve got left.
Overall, it’s a no brainer to check iPhone battery from Mac. Once you know the trick, you don’t have to leave your seat and enjoy the much-needed alone time on your Mac.
