If you use Low Power Mode to save power when your battery percentage gets too low for comfort, but hate how cumbersome it is to turn the feature on, then a new free jailbreak tweak called QuickPowerMode by Olxios&Nico should be the next thing you install on your jailbroken iPhone.

This tweak makes it easier to toggle Low Power Mode. With it, all you have to do is tap on the battery icon in your Status Bar, and this turns the feature on or off.

QuickPowerMode saves a lot of time and energy in comparison to opening the Settings app, going into the Battery preferences pane, and toggling the Low Power Mode switch on.

The tweak is also more efficient than the CCLowPower tweak, which adds a Low Power Mode toggle to Control Center, because you don’t even have to open Control Center to toggle the feature on; that’s one less swipe you have to make!

In an instant after tapping on the battery, it turns the icon yellow to indicate Low Power Mode is turned on. When you tap once again, Low Power Mode is instantly turned off, just as quickly.

It’s worth noting that the tweak works from anywhere in iOS, whether you’re in an app, on the Home screen, or even when you’re on the Lock screen.

QuickPowerMode has no options to configure and is available for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repository. The tweak is advertised to work with all jailbroken iOS 10 iPhones.

    Nice tweak. Simple and useful

    What if you’re in Safari or any app that supports scroll-up shortcuts when tapping the statusbar? Does it get you back to the top of the screen or not? I’ll have to test this on my spare device.

    • This tweak only works when you tap directly on the battery icon. I don’t see why this would get in the way if you just tap somewhere else in the Status Bar?

        What I needed to confirm is that by tapping on th battery it would not scroll up, that clarifies my question, thanks.
