Those of us craving better battery life from our mobile devices could see help from an Apple invention outlined in a patent application.

Published Thursday by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the patent dubbed “Power management for electronic devices” suggests key ways to save or reduce the power consumed by your phone or tablet.

Your mobile device could monitor its own activity throughout the day to determine when and for how long you charge it, how far you travel for your commute, and if and when you’re able to charge it throughout the day. As such, it could then reserve battery power by automatically turning off or decreasing certain functions, such as regular e-mail fetching or the brightness of the display.
