You may have noticed with the new iPhone update that when your iPhone gets to 20% of its power it will prompt you to enter ‘ low-power mode’.
But did you know that you can enter low-power mode when your iPhone battery is not low? This is a great way to extend the battery life of your iPhone!
To enter low-power mode, all you need to do is say to Siri ” Turn on low-power mode.”
This will turn on low-power mode. You can tell that you are in low-power mode because the battery charge indicator icon will change colour from green to yellow (like in the picture above).
I was surprised at how efficient low-power mode is. My iPhone barely lasts a day in usual usage, but with low power mode turned on it was still running on the third day without a charge.
You can also find the low-power switch under Settings: Battery.
There you will see this explanation of what happens in low-power mode:
Just be warned that the iPhone automatically switches out of low power mode when it is fully charged. So I begin my day every day now by saying to siri… ‘turn on low power mode’.
