Those folks with jailbroken device now have a great ability to choose when Low Power Mode toggles on automatically in iOS 10. One way to conserve power on your iPhone when the battery level gets uncomfortably low is to turn on the built-in Low Power Mode. This feature reduces power consumption on your device by doing things like reducing your screen brightness, slashing background tasks, and making your iPhone fall asleep faster, among other things.
But iOS doesn’t kick itself into Low Power Mode automatically until you reach at staggeringly-low 20% of your battery life. That’s why a new Cydia release dubbed as Low Power Modder allows you to choose when Low Power Mode toggles on automatically in iOS 10.
How To Choose When Low Power Mode Toggles On/Off Automatically
Low Power Modder is available as a free download package on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. The tweak is compatible only with jailbroken iOS 10 iPhones. As iPads and iPod touches do not have Low Power Mode feature they are not supported.
Once you're done with installation Low Power Modder will add a preferences pane to the Settings app where you can toggle the tweak on or off on demand, as well as configure some options:
This tweak essentially lets you configure a custom battery level at which Low Power Mode will toggle on automatically on your iPhone. If you feel like the default 20% threshold is pushing it, then you might opt to start saving power when your battery hits around 40% or so.
Low Power Modder also allows you to choose when Low Power Mode turns off when your device is charging. With this tweak you can configure Low Power Mode remain on until you’re at 90%, or even 100%, as it can help your device to charge faster by lowering power usage as the device charges to its fullest.
What is really great is that Low Power Modder is all automatic, it means that after you’ve set your configurations you’ll never have to toggle Low Power Mode on manually on your jailbroken device.
