Alert that goes off when your iPhone battery is low

Since the smartphone exists, the battery is the main element. However, at the moment, no battery has the necessary power to supply a phone for a whole day. While waiting for technology to find a solution to this problem, we suggest you a tip to create an alert as soon as your iPhone battery needs to be recharged.

Automatic low battery notification

Optimizing the phone battery has become the number one priority for many iPhone owners. It must be said that with the arrival of contactless payment on cell phones, applications to start your car without a key and the dematerialization of documents (cinema tickets, vaccination pass, transport tickets), living without a smartphone has become mission impossible. And because you can’t spend all day checking the battery life of your phone, some clever people have come up with the idea of creating a battery alert. Indeed, why not delegate this thankless task to your iPhone and have it warn you when the battery reaches a certain level of charge. You will then be able to go about your business in complete peace of mind. Obviously some of you will tell me that this already exists. It’s true, the iPhone sends a notification as soon as the battery reaches 20% of charge. But this device lacks flexibility. This limit defined arbitrarily by Apple may seem too low for some users.

Create an alert when there is only 30% of autonomy left

With the automation application Shortcuts, it is now possible to trigger a battery to warn users when their battery reaches a fairly low charge level. Unfortunately this feature requires an iPhone running iOS 13 or later.

  • Launch the Shortcuts application on your iPhone
  • Click on the automation tab located at the bottom of the screen
  • Then press the blue Create a personal automation button
  • Move the window down to the very bottom
  • Select the Battery level option
  • Move the slider to the left or right until you get the desired battery level In our example we want to be warned when the battery reaches 30% of charge
  • Then check one of the three options proposed
  • In our case, we must choose: Is equal to 30% or Is less than 30% (the script runs when the autonomy falls to 29%)
  • Be careful, you must not use the option Is greater than 30%
  • Click on the following button located in the upper right corner of the window
  • Press the blue button Add an action
  • Technically Apple leaves you a wide choice of possibilities. However, I advise you to opt for a flashy notification with an alert beep
  • Type in the notification search bar
  • Click on the red show notification button
  • Put your finger on Hello everyone and replace the sentence by the text of your choice (for example: Remember to recharge the battery as soon as possible)
  • Then press Show more
  • You will be able to add a title to the notification
  • Don’t forget to check that the Make ring switch is activated
  • Once the configuration is finished, press next
  • Remember to deactivate the Ask option before executing and confirm your choice by clicking on the Don’t ask button
  • In this way, the alert will be automatically triggered in the background
  • Click on Ok to finish the recording of this automation

From now on, as soon as the battery of your iPhone falls to 30% of remaining charge (or the level you will have chosen beforehand) you will receive an automatic notification asking you to plug your phone to an electrical outlet. If you are not satisfied with the result, it is possible to modify this alert. To do so, you just have to go back to the automation tab of the Shortcuts application, then click on the alert and change the defined parameters (battery level, notification text etc.).
