    Highlights of the Story

    • You must have heard about the Optimized charging option, which ensures the battery health of any iPhone is maintained for many years.
    • But what if you want to ensure your iPhone’s battery is not charged above 80 % to maintain optimized charging?
    • Here, we will now learn how you can receive a custom notification whenever your iPhone charges up to 80% so that you can turn off its charging.

    With the introduction of iOS 13 on September 2019, Apple introduced Optimized battery charging on all supported smartphones. This feature actually charges your iPhone to full speed until 80 % and slows down the charging process after that to avoid overstressing the battery. Apple claims that through this feature, you can also improve the overall battery health of your smartphone, improving its longevity.

    But, since Apple recommends unplugging the charger when your iPhone battery is up to 80% charged, you may wonder many times how you can get notified whenever it reaches that milestone. Hence in this post, we will learn how you can set up a custom notification alert when your iPhone has reached 80% of the charge. This will ensure that the battery health of your iOS-based smartphone is maintained, and you won’t have to worry about its battery depletion. So let us dive straight into it.

    How To Set Up Custom Notification When iPhone Battery Reaches 80%

    To receive a custom notification whenever the iPhone’s battery level reaches a specific percentage of charge, we’ll utilise Automation. Automations are an addition to the iPhone’s Siri Shortcuts, but you don’t have to launch one manually. You can easily do that by using the Shortcuts menu on your iPhone. We now look at how you can do that, via these steps.

    • At first, open the Shortcuts app on your iPhone and tap on Automation, located at the bottom of your display.
    • Next, select the plus (+) icon on the top right-hand corner. Now select Create Personal Automation.
    • Now, scroll down to the bottom to find the Battery Level section. Select it and then select rises above. By default, this will be set to Rises Above 50%.
    • You will now need to drag the cursor. Drag it up to the point where the below shortcut reads Rises Above 80%.
    • After that, select Next and move to the succeeding page. There, select Add action and then select Speak Test as the desired action.
    • Now, write a custom message you want as the required notification sound. After typing the message, you can also select to vibrate the smartphone if your smartphone is Mute during charging.
    • These custom actions would ensure that your iPhone vibrates, plays a notification sound, and displays a notification badge with a personalised message when the battery percentage reaches a specified level. To edit the custom text in future, select “text” from the Show notice action menu.
    • After all these steps, just ensure to turn off Ask before Running and tap Done.

    Now, whenever your iPhone is plugged in to charge, and the battery level reaches 80 per cent charge, the Automation action will be activated, and you will receive the custom notification set by you. Through this now, you can successfully unplug your charger whenever your iPhone reaches the specified battery level by hearing the notification.

    You can now set up a custom notification on an iPhone by following these steps. Even though you receive a warning when your iPhone’s battery is 80% charged, this won’t prevent a full charge of your iPhone. Fully charging your iPhone is not a big concern. This method only ensures that your battery health is maintained for the longevity of your iPhone.
