Frequently Asked Questions

Q 1. Does low power mode affect battery health on iPhone?

No. Keeping this noted power saving mode always enabled won’t affect the battery health. Though it will have an impact on your overall user experience as the device will turn off all the features like background refresh and location service that consume more battery.

Q 2. How do I keep my battery 100 healthy?

There is no way you can keep your iPhone’s battery at 100%. The only way you can make it happen is to stop using and charging your iPhone. Whether or not this proposition is feasible, it’s completely up to you.

Wrap up…

Note that Apple has already released a Focus Filter API for developers in order to allow third-party apps to get the most out of the Focus Filters. For example, if you use Instagram on your device, you can customize the app for a focus profile. Hence, it’s just a matter of time before we will see most apps and games come up with support for focus filters. That said, what do you have to say about this notable addition to iOS?
