Follow these steps to set the notification when your iPhone has been fully charged.
Step 1) Open Shortcuts app.
Step 2) Inside Shortcuts app, navigate to “My Shortcuts” tab.
Step 3) Tap “+” on top right of the screen to create a new shortcut.
Step 4) Fill in Shortcut Name. Label it as “iPhone fully charged”.
Step 5) Tap “+ Add Action”.
a) On the search bar, find “Show Notification” and tap on “Show Notification”.
b) On “Show Notification” action, tap the “Hello World”, remove the word “Hello World” and replace with “iPhone is fully charged. Please disconnect from charger.”.
c) On the search bar (now at the bottom of the screen), find “Send Email” and tap on “Send Email”.
d) On “Send Email” action, do the following:
Tap the “Message”, fill in with “iPhone is fully charged. Please disconnect from charger”.
Tap the “Recipients”, fill n with your own email address (this is to notify yourself when your iPhone has been fully charged).
Tap the “Subject”, fill in with “iPhone is fully charged. Please disconnect from charger”.
e) Tap “X” on close the new “iPhone fully charged” shortcut.
Step 6) Inside Shortcuts app, navigate to “Automation” tab.
Step 7) Tap “+” on top right of the screen to create a new automation.
Step 8) On New Automation window, tap on “Create Personal Automation”.
Step 9) On the next On New Automation window, find “Battery Level” and tap on “Battery Level”.
Step 10) Inside “Battery Level” automation window, slide the slider to the right to 100%. Ensure you see “Equals 100%” gets ticked. Tap on “Next”.
Step 11) On the Actions window, tap “+ Add Action”.
a) On the search bar, find “Run Shortcut” and tap on “Run Shortcut”.
b) On “Run Shortcut” action, tap the “Shortcut” and choose “iPhone fully charged”. Click “Next”
c) On next window, turn off “Ask Before Running”. When prompted with “Don’t ask before running?”, tap “Don’t Ask”.
d) Turn ON “Notify When Run”.
e) Tap “Done” to save the new automation.
That’s it. Although the steps are long, but they are not complicated. Do give it a try and test to charge your iPhone till 100%. If you set it up correctly, you should get notified when your iPhone has been fully charged to 100%.
Bring it all together
With this Shortcut and Automation combination, you’ll always get notified when your iPhone is fully charged to 100% so that you become aware of it and can act on it – such as to disconnect your iPhone from the charger.
Even better if you are using a compatible smart plug with you, you can instruct the smart plug to stop charging when your iPhone has reached 100% battery capacity.
In case you have queries or encountered any difficulties, don’t hesitate to post me your queries or thoughts. I’ll be happy to assist.
