My car broke down last week, and my iPhone battery was at 1%.
I was out of power and had to call a tow truck. But, there was no wall socket anywhere. Thank goodness I had my iPad with me!
Did you know that you can charge your iPhone with your iPad?
How to Charge Your Devices with Your iPad
If you need to charge your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or other USB device and you don’t have a power outlet handy, you can use your iPad to share its battery with them. Just connect the correct cable or adapter to your iPad, and it’ll start charging up.
To charge an earlier-model iPad or iPhone with a Lightning port, connect it to your iPad using the Apple USB-C to Lightning Cable. If you have a Lightning to USB cable, you can combine it with the Apple USB-C to USB Adapter, then connect the adapter to your iPad.
Using a USB-C cable, you can connect two iPad models with USB-C ports. The battery in one iPad will be charged by the other. If you want to switch which iPad charges, unplug the USB-C connection and reconnect them.
You can even charge your Apple Watch by connecting its magnetic charging cable to your iPad using the Apple USB-C to USB Adapter. If you have an Apple Watch Magnetic Charger to USB-C Cable, you can use that to connect directly with your iPad.
More Than Enough Power
Your iPad has more power to offer than you might think. A 12.9-inch iPad Pro has a 10,758 mAh battery. And the 11-inch iPad Pro has a 9,720 mAh battery.
Considering the iPhone 13’s battery is only 3,095 mAh, the iPad is capable of fully charging your iPhone.
Even the 5,178 mAh battery in the iPad mini has more than enough juice to charge your iPhone.
So remember that in a pinch, your iPad can come to the rescue and charge your iPhone, another iPad, or your Apple Watch.
Even if your iPad is running low on battery, it will still have enough power to give your iPhone a full charge.
So, next time you’re in an emergency situation with a dead iPhone, don’t forget that you can use your superhero iPad to save the day!
