Disabling the Feature in 4 Easy Steps
If the feature is on by default and you want to disable it, here’s how:
- Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
- Tap “Battery.”
- Tap “Battery Health.”
- Tap the toggle next to “Optimized Battery Charging” to turn it off.
This will keep the feature disabled until you re-enable it manually. If you’re wondering why it was on in the first place, you need to know that it’s enabled by default when you set up your iPhone. It’s also automatically turned on after updating to iOS 13 or later.
How to Turn Off Optimized Battery Charging From the Notification
Now, let’s see what you can do if you don’t want to disable the feature in the settings but still want to charge your phone quickly. How to turn off optimized battery charging just for the moment? You can do that from the notification that appears when you connect your charger.
The notification will say when your phone is scheduled to finish charging. You can change that by touching and holding the notification. An option called “Charge Now” will appear. Tap that, and your phone will charge to 100% without optimization.
Note that this is a one-time thing, and the feature will go back to its original state after you disconnect the charger. So if you want to disable it for the duration of a trip, for example, you’ll need to go to the settings and follow our earlier instructions on how to turn off optimized battery charging.
When to Keep Optimized Battery Charging Enabled
Optimized Battery Charging is a great feature, and we recommend leaving it on most of the time. It’s designed to prolong the life of your iPhone’s battery. It does this by learning your daily charging habits and then using that information to slow down the charging process when it’s not necessary.
For example, if you usually charge your phone overnight, optimized battery charging will kick in and make sure that your phone only charges to 80% before slowing down. This way, your battery won’t be charging from 99% to 100% over and over throughout the night, which could damage it in the long run.
Of course, there are times when you might want to disable optimized battery charging. If you’re going on a long trip, for example, and you want to make sure your phone is charged to 100% every time you find an outlet to plug it in, you can disable the feature in the settings.
How to Help the Feature Work as Intended
Now you know how to turn off optimized battery charging. But if you still want to use the feature and prevent it from behaving weirdly, there are a few things you can do:
- Charge your iPhone at regular intervals. The algorithm will learn when you charge your phone and won’t activate at other times, allowing you to charge normally in emergencies.
- Try not to let your iPhone’s battery drop below 20% too often. This will prolong the life of your battery in the long run.
- Avoid using low-power mode while optimized battery charging is enabled. This will prevent the algorithm from learning your charging habits properly.
- Use original chargers and cables. This will help the algorithm work as intended and optimize your charging correctly.
