A LITTLE-known secret shortcut can help you be better notified when your phone’s battery is 100 percent charged.
The iPhone doesn’t have a default setting that alerts you when it’s fully charged. However, this battery setting can be done with the help of the Shortcuts app.
The Shortcuts app allows you to set up automations that can be triggered when certain things happen on your phone.
With a few simple steps you can set it up to send you a notification when your phone is fully charged.
The trick was brought to light by technology news outlet Pocket-lint.
Here’s a breakdown of how to set up the shortcut when your phone’s battery hits 100 per cent while charging (according to Pocket-lint).
Full battery notification
First, open the Shortcuts app.
Second, under the Automation tab, tap Create Custom Automation (or the + sign if you don’t see it).
Third, scroll down to select Battery Level.
Fourth, scroll the bar all the way to the right so that the checked option says “Matches 100%”.
Fifth, tap “Next” and then tap “Add Action”.
Sixth, search for Play Sound in the search bar and select it.
Seventh, tap “Next” and uncheck “Ask before running”.
Finally, tap “Done”.
MORE IPHONE TIPS
There are three settings on your iPhone that can help you drastically save battery.
This includes using dark mode for your entire iPhone with iOS dark mode, in-app dark mode, and reducing the number of apps on your phone.
Dark mode conserves your charge by minimizing the amount of energy required to activate the display pixels.
You only want to keep official apps from the App Store on your phone and delete others that might be draining your battery in the background.
Also, there is a hidden culprit that might eat up a large chunk of your iPhone’s storage space.
If you’re recording video, this is the 4K setting.
A 60-second video filmed in 4K resolution takes up a whopping 475 MB.
While a 10-minute 4K video can take up to 4GB of storage.
To disable the 4K setting, go to Settings > Camera > Record Video.
