Battery

How to get a notification when your iPhone or iPad is fully charged

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.

Electrode transforms your iPhone’s low power alerts into low power toasts

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.
