How To Add Low Power Mode Toggle Switch To iOS 9 Control Center
Low Power Mode is a handy little feature that tones down certain aspects of an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch in exchange for more battery life. The problem with the feature is that it requires you to open up the Settings app, then tap on Battery, then toggle the feature on from here. Not exactly a painless experience. Luckily, you can add the Low Power Mode toggle switch straight to the Control Center, allowing you to turn said feature on or off whenever you desire.
The way you're going to pull off this feat is by installing a jailbreak tweak called FlipControlCenter from Cydia, developed by the one and only, Ryan Petrich. Once that is out of the way, you'll launch Cydia once again and install another tweak called 'Low Power Flipswitch.' Simply launch FlipControlCenter and select the Low Power Flipswitch toggle and it to Control Center. Nice and simple.
Whenever you bring up Control Center in iOS 9.x from here on in, you'll be presented with a Low Power Mode button, all set to be toggled on at a moment's notice.
It's somewhat sad that we're sitting on top of iOS 9.x and Apple still hasn't introduced an option to allow users to customize the Control Center toggles. We're somewhat hopeful that the Cupertino giant will eventually bring the feature to the table in a future release of iOS, but until that happens, we have to make do with tweaks and certain frameworks, something that can't be pulled off without a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch at hand.
If you have an old iOS device that struggles in terms of battery life, then we highly recommend that you install Low Power Flipswitch right away, giving you access to one of the most important battery related features of iOS 9.
If you do happen to install the tweak on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, then be sure to let us know about it in the comments section below regarding your usage experience. Do you think Apple should add the Low Power Mode toggle switch to Control Center as standard, or are things good as they are?
