Low Power Mode

QuickPowerMode toggles Low Power Mode when you tap on the Status Bar battery icon

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.

Choose when Low Power Mode automatically toggles on or off with Low Power Modder

One way to conserve power on your iPhone when the battery level gets uncomfortably low is to turn on the built-in Low Power Mode. This feature reduces power consumption on your iPhone by doing things like reducing your screen brightness, slashing background tasks, and making your iPhone fall asleep faster, among other things.

On the other hand, iOS doesn’t kick itself into Low Power Mode automatically until you reach at staggeringly-low 20% of your battery life. By that point, you’re already grasping at straws. That’s why iFlames released a new free jailbreak tweak called Low Power Modder in Cydia.

CCLowPower adds a Low Power Mode toggle to Control Center

As many of us use our iPhones a whole lot more than others do, we find ourselves combating the ongoing issue with conserving battery life, and that’s why Apple introduced a handy little feature known as Low Power Mode.

Although it’s useful at times, it still requires you to dig through the Settings app to get to it, which is not only cumbersome, but also inconvenient. To fix that problem, a new free jailbreak tweak made especially for iOS 10 called CCLowPower will let you enable Low Power Mode via a new toggle button in Control Center.

Snapchat optimized for iPhone’s Low Power Mode

Earlier this week, Snapchat issued a small update to its free of charge iPhone application on the App Store. Bumping version number to 9.37, the app is now optimized for iOS’s Low Power Mode which debuted in iOS 9 last year.

“When your device is in Low Power Mode, Snapchat will now automatically reduce its battery usage,” according to release notes accompanying a 96.1-megabyte download.

iOS 9.3.2 beta 2 brings back ability to use Night Shift and Lower Power Mode at the same time

The ability to use iOS 9.3’s headlining Night Shift feature when an iPhone is in Low Power Mode has been reinstated in a second beta of iOS 9.3.2 that was seeded to Apple’s registered developers this morning, as noted by eagle-eyed users on Twitter and first reported on by MacRumors.

Night Shift and Low Power Mode worked simultaneously on prior iOS 9.3 betas, but that feature was later removed without explanation in iOS 9.3 beta 4.

Tip: quickly and easily re-enable Low Power Mode right from its notification

For the most part, my iPhone 6s runs in Low Power Mode unless I’m playing a game or using an app that requires the full power of the Apple A9 processor. I’ve found that I wake up to a fuller battery after leaving my iPhone in Low Power Mode during the night.

That being said, overnight charging in Low Power Mode can be challenging due the fact that iOS 9 automatically disables it when the battery level crosses the eight percent mark.

Instead of venturing into Settings to re-enable Low Power Mode manually, you can save yourself a few taps and do so right from its notification banner.

Siri trick that let you activate Night Shift while Low Power Mode is enabled no longer works

The iOS 9.3 software update includes Night Shift mode that helps users get a good night’s sleep by reducing the amount of blue light emitted from a backlight of their iOS device.

Night Shift is unavailable when an iPhone is in Low Power Mode and a workaround that let you ask Siri to activate Night Shift in this mode no longer works.

As first reported on by 9to5Mac’s Jeff Benjamin, asking Siri to enable Night Shift while the device is in Low Power Mode now yields a warning message.

Wolfram: a tweak that supposedly helps you charge your iPhone faster

Low Power Mode is a feature Apple built into iOS 9 to help you conserve power when your battery level gets too low. But what if we told you that’s not the only way it could benefit you?

A new jailbreak tweak called Wolfram, which can be had free of cost from Cydia today, aims to use Low Power Mode for an entirely different purpose – making charging your device a little bit quicker.

This jailbreak tweak keeps Low Power Mode on even after a full charge

Low Power Mode is one of the new features of iOS 9 that allows you to keep your battery usage as low as possible throughout the day when you want to conserve battery life and you feel your battery level is getting to the point where you might not last until you can get to a charger.

Unfortunately, while most of us enjoy reaping the benefits of Low Power Mode, whether we have a low battery level or not, iOS automatically disables the feature when your device gets charged up enough, forcing you to go to the Settings app and re-enable Low Power Mode manually.

That’s where a new free jailbreak tweak in Cydia’s BigBoss repository called LowPowerMode is going to make your life a whole lot easier.

How to fix greyed out Auto-Lock setting on iPhone

Every once in a while the Auto-Lock setting on my iPhone would get stuck on thirty seconds even though I clearly remember setting it to 1 minute. And occasionally, I can’t change the timing for the automatic lock feature in Settings → General → Auto-Lock because the option appears greyed out.

Has that happened to you in the past? If so, proceed reading this article to learn about a remarkable simple fix for this issue and learn what’s causing it.

How to toggle Low Power mode via Control Center with a jailbreak tweak

Low Power Flipswitch is a new Flipswitch toggle that allows you to quickly enable or disable Low Power Mode on iOS 9 devices. Flipswitch is the long-running framework that lets developers access standard toggles, and create new toggles.

With a tweak like Ryan Petrich’s FlipControlCenter, which was recently updated to support iOS 9, users can easily enable a Low Power Mode toggle that’s directly accessible via Control Center. Check out the rest of this post for more details.
