The battery saver on your iPhone or iPad reduces the background activities and here’s how to turn it off.
Battery saver or Low Power Mode on iPhone or iPad is a useful feature that will extend the battery life by restricting the apps that are running background.
Low Power Mode on iPhone or iPad is very handy to use when you are running out of battery and don’t have a power source nearby. It is one of the best ways to save your battery life.
Low Power Mode on iPhone or iPad can run either automatically or manually. You can set it to turn on automatically. When your battery is below 20 percent, the battery saver feature will activate.
When the battery saver is on, some tasks that are running in the background will be limited. Here are the tasks that will be affected when you activate the battery saver:
- 5G (except for video streaming) on iPhone 12 models1
- Auto-Lock (defaults to 30 seconds)
- Display brightness
- Display refresh rate (limited up to 60 Hz) on iPhone and iPad models with ProMotion display2
- Some visual effects
- iCloud Photos (temporarily paused)
- Automatic downloads
- Email fetch
- Background app refresh
After you charge your iPhone and the battery reaches 80 percent or above, the system will turn off the battery saver automatically. And the background services will run normally.
