References to “High Power Mode” discovered in macOS Monterey hint at a new performance-focused feature for Mac notebooks designed to maximize performance while on battery power.
Jailbreaking has a bad rap for reducing battery life, but it doesn’t have to. A well-tuned jailbroken device should last just as long as a non-jailbroken device, and the community harbors a plethora of different tools for supercharging battery monitoring and performance on pwned handsets.
Knowing when your iPhone or iPad has been fully charged can be helpful depending on the circumstances. Maybe you're waiting for your iPhone to reach 100% of battery before leaving your home. Or maybe you just don't like to keep your device plugged in once the battery has been fully charged. Whatever your reason may be, there is a way to be alerted the minute your iPhone or iPad has reached a full charge.
Using the Shortcuts app, we will create a personal automation that will run when battery level reaches 100%. At that time, we will have different options as to how we want to be alerted.
As an iPhone’s battery level approaches the dangerous sub-20% territory, the handset will automatically alert the user. One thing that has always peeved me about this, however, is that the alert isn’t as aesthetically pleasing as I’d come to expect from a company with a reputation for good looks such as Apple.
For those who agree, a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed Electrode by iOS developer biD3V offers refuge, as it replaces the iPhone’s traditional low power alerts with something called a Toast, which looks like the pop-up you get when toggling the ringer/silent switch on an iPhone or attaching an Apple Pencil to an iPad to charge.
Apple's MagSafe battery pack snaps magnetically onto the back of your iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max so it's there whenever you go, happy to top up your phone. The accessory has some pretty cool features, but is it really worth the asking price?
A consumer group in Europe wants some answers from Apple regarding alleged iPhone battery drain after receiving complaints that iOS 14.5 and other updates slowed down recent iPhones.
The MagSafe Battery Pack, which is Apple's portable wireless battery, is now available for the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max models.
The App Switcher is, at least in my opinion, one of the most underwhelming interfaces on the iPhone. The full-screen card switcher interface makes such poor use of the expansive screen real estate that it’s no surprise we see so many jailbreak tweaks attempting to fix this.
The latest of such tweaks is one called Vaon by iOS developer atar13, which not only converts the App Switcher from a card-based interface to a grid-based one, but also adds an iOS 14-style battery widget to the bottom.
As you run your iPhone’s battery far into the danger zone, iOS displays a low power banner to let you know that you should visit a charger as soon as you can.
The low power banner that comes with a stock installation of iOS is particularly barebones, and could do with some spicing up. TitanD3v seems to agree with this sentiment, and a such, a newly released jailbreak tweak dubbed Surge has been conceived.
One of the things iPadOS 15 will do for the iPad is port the iPhone’s handy Low Power Mode feature to Apple’s tablet for when the battery needs preserving.
It’s a shame that it took Apple so long to implement Low Power Mode on iPads out of the box, especially considering that it’s not a particularly complicated or unreasonable feature. But if you’re a jailbreaker, then you needn’t wait for iPadOS 15 to be released later this Fall to enjoy Low Power Mode on the iPad.
With the iPadOS 15 and macOS 12 Monterey software updates, Apple brought the iPhone's handy low power mode to the iPad and Mac, helping extend battery life on those devices.
Apple released the public version of iOS 14.6 on May 24, 2021. Less than 24 hours later, some users began complaining on social media about a significant battery drain and overheating.
