2. Tap the automation you created when power saving mode is off.
3. On the Edit Automation screen, uncheck Enable this automation. Tap Done and you’re good to go.

Low Power Mode does several things to reduce the overall power consumption of your device, such as:
- Decreases overall CPU and GPU performance
- Disables automatic background retrieval of new email
- Decreases screen brightness
- Stops automatic downloads
- Limited visual effects and animations
- Reduces auto-lock time to 30 seconds
- Photos and videos don’t sync with iCloud
- The device limits 5G connectivity and more
As mentioned, Low Power mode limits a lot of background activity on iOS. It also lowers the CPU and GPU performance which makes the device feel sluggish at times, especially while running heavy apps or games.
If you can compromise on performance and other features like background syncing, visual effects, and dealing with lower screen brightness, yes, you can always keep your iPhone or iPad in low-power mode.
But again, this can hinder your overall experience with the device, which is why Apple will turn it off automatically once the battery has enough charge.To block
