You can go to Settings->Battery->Low Power Mode and manually turn it on, and it won't turn off until you manually turn it off.


So for all intents and purposes it will be locked to on.


Note that Low Power mode stops a lot of features from working on the iPhone in order to conserve power.

It turns off automatically when you're charging the phone and it reaches 80%.

I see, I did not know that. Good to know.

Fortunately, it alerts you that it's turing it off so that at least you are aware and can turn it back on again.

When the notification tells you that low-power mode is turmed off (battery sufficiently charged) you can swipe it right and go straight to the low-power mode switch. I do this every morning, takes literally one second.

Good to know. Hopefully that tip will be helpful to people who want to keep their phone in low power mode.


Best of luck.

I added the low power mode button to my lock screen, but an option to disable the automatic off switch when charging above 80% would be good (for us who use the phone as a tool for many tasks).


please do, Apple.

Incorrect. When the battery is placed on charge and it reaches a certain % it will auto turn off battery save.

Yes, I pointed that out to Phil back in March. He's a smart guy. I suspect he still understands.
