iOS simulator battery level

I have always enjoyed this feature I noticed on the iOS simulator

I have always enjoyed little features that whilst they’ve never been particularly useful to my development work, have made me smile.

One that made me smile recently is that when you run the iOS simulator the battery level will be set to whatever your laptop’s battery level is.

I have never had a use for this; but I enjoy it a lot!

You can see that both are also showing that the machine is charging.

I’m sure there are valid uses for this in the simulator, and I have to imagine there is a setting to override the default battery level. Since I’ve never needed it for anything I just like this little detail.
