The energy saving mode (LPM) reduces the amount of battery your iPhone uses by refreshing the background app and automatic downloads, locking your screen after 30 seconds and more. Although it is only meant to be used temporarily, you may want to permanently enable LPM if you have problems with the battery life.
With iOS 1
Step 1: Create a personal automation in shortcuts
First open the Shortcuts app and tap the "Automation" tab at the bottom of the screen. Now you have to choose a trigger: in this case we want "Low Power Mode". On the next page, tap & # 39; Is disabled & # 39 ;. This means that the trigger for your personal automation is that LPM is switched off. Press "Next".
Now you need an action that is performed automatically when the trigger condition is met. Tap "Add Action" and then type Low Power Mode in the search bar that appears and choose "Set Low Power Mode" from the results. The action is automatically set to "On", so you don't have to change it. Press "Next" when done.
Your new personal automation is almost complete, but we want to make it fully automatic. To do that, you must disable "Ask before executing". In this way, when the trigger condition is met (i.e., when LPM is off), you do not have to manually confirm to perform the action. Instead it will happen in the background. If you disable "Ask before running", you must also tap "Do not ask". To complete the creation of the shortcut, press "Done" at the top right.
Now that your new personal automation shortcut has been completed, it is time to test it. If you follow it closely, personal automation works as follows: when the energy-saving mode is switched off, it is automatically switched on again.
Simple right? To test it, switch the power saving mode on and then off (you can easily do this from the Control Center). If the shortcut works, the energy-saving mode is automatically switched on again, indicated by a message from the shortcut app (GIF below).
You may not want the personal automation of the Low Power Mode to be used indefinitely time on your device, so you can turn it off or delete it.
First you can simply turn off the shortcut. To do this, tap it on the Automation of the Shortcuts app and disable "Enable this automation"
Alternatively, you can permanently delete the shortcut. To do this, swipe left on the Automation tab and tap & # 39; Delete & # 39;
