I remember someone did the math on a windows update that caused computers to use like 0.1-0.5% more power and America basically had to do the equivalent of adding another nuclear power plant to handle that extra power.

Little things add up.

But my phone isn’t charging quick even though I’m usually by a charger

More like, compare that to the REST of your daily carbon footprint.

But it’s only even available in a few select countries, so what difference is it really making?

Edit: Basically just the US….

Since most people charge their phones over night it doesn’t hurt them if it charged only when clean energy is available.

Would be more interesting to compare that to the additional data transfer caused by the feature.

It doesn’t hurt, no. But it isn’t really doing/saving that much when it’s only available in one region, and some in this thread have even mentioned it being disabled by default.

There are many other, (better), things Apple could do if they really cared about the environment, but I think we all know that.
