How To Enable Low Power Mode And Battery Health In iOS 16

The Low Power Mode can be very helpful if you’re running low on battery on your iPhone and not able to charge. You can enable the feature to make your device conserve its battery by temporarily reducing background activities like mail fetch and downloads until you can fully charge it. 

Estimate Cost : 0

Time Needed : 3 minutes

Aside from that, you can also protect the battery from aging by enabling the feature that helps you protect your battery health. These two settings can be found under the same screen and we will show you how to enable them as the battery is what keeps your iPhone alive. 

Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Go back to the Home screen and tap Settings.

    This will open the Settings app. 

  2. Scroll down a bit to find Battery and once found, tap on it.

    This will open the Battery settings screen. 

  3. To enable Low Power Mode, tap the switch next to it.

    This will temporarily reduce all background activities like downloads and mail fetches until your device is fully-charged again. 

  4. To know more about your device’s battery, tap Battery Health.

    On the next screen, you will see the current capacity the battery can hold but it’s expected that it will go down after several months of use. 

  5. To reduce battery aging, tap the switch next to Optimized Battery Charging to enable it.

    Your iPhone will learn from your daily charging routine so it can wait to finish charging past 80% until you need to use it. 

  6. To know which app or service uses more battery, go back to the previous screen and scroll down to Battery Usage By App section.

    In there, you will see apps or services that use more battery.
