Should You Turn Off Clean Energy Charging on Your iPhone?

March 25, 2024 | by The Jeuns

If you have an iPhone running on iOS 16.1 or older in the U.S., chances are you’ve been using Clean Energy Charging without even realizing it. This feature, which was turned on by default in the October 2022 update, aims to optimize your device’s charging process. Clean Energy Charging works in conjunction with other settings like Location Services, System Customization, and Significant Locations to deliver a more efficient charging experience.

While Clean Energy Charging can be beneficial for many users, it may not be suitable for everyone. The feature may adjust how your iPhone charges based on your frequently visited locations, such as home or work. This could pose challenges for individuals with fluctuating schedules or those who travel frequently.

Fortunately, disabling Clean Energy Charging is a simple process. If you prefer a quicker charging time, you can manually activate the ‘Charge Now’ option on the ‘Suspended Charging’ lock screen notification. To completely turn off Clean Energy Charging, navigate to the ‘Battery Health & Charging’ section in your Settings app and toggle the feature off.

By understanding how Clean Energy Charging works and knowing how to disable it, iPhone users can customize their charging experience based on their individual preferences and lifestyle.
