Hear iPad Pete read this iPhone tutorial…
We’ve all been there—it’s 3 p.m., and your battery is at 20%.
A message automatically pops up asking if you want to switch to Low Power Mode. So you switch it on and hope that gets you through the rest of your day.
If you find this happens often, you could manually switch on Low Power Mode earlier in the day by going to Settings > Battery > Low Power Mode.
Or, if you find yourself forgetting to do this, you could set up your iPhone to automatically switch to Low Power Mode before it reaches the critical 20% level.
Then you’ll always have enough juice to get you through your day.
Here’s how to set it up:
1. Open your Shortcuts App and select the Automation tab.
2. Tap ‘+’ and Create Personal Automation.
3. Choose Battery Level from the options.
4. Change the Percentage Level for when Low Power Mode should activate by dragging the slider (the default is set at 20%).
5. Tap Next.
6. And tap Add Action.
7. Search and select Set Low Power Mode and tap Next.
8. Toggle off Ask Before Running.
9. Tap Done.
And that’s it! Now you’ll never have to remember to enable Low Power Mode again — it will happen automatically when your battery reaches whatever battery percentage you set.
Tweak the settings if you find you’re still not making it through the day with enough power.
Wrapping it Up
Low Power Mode is a great way to conserve your iPhone’s battery life, but it can be a pain to have to remember to turn it on manually every time your battery gets low.
By setting up Personal Automation in Shortcuts, you can have Low Power Mode turn on automatically—so you’ll never have to worry about your battery dying again!
