How to Tell if Your iPhone is Fast Charging

Using a normal cable and adapter like the ones that come in a new iPhone box, there should only be one chime noise emitted from the phone to signal normal charging. In fast charging mode, you should hear a second chime sounding a second or two after the first chime .

Do you find yourself in a hurry to get your iPhone charged up quickly? If so, there is a neat automation you can create that will allow you to charge your phone extremely fast without even having to think about it. This trick will help charge your iPhone extremely faster than it normally would. Here’s how to do it.

First, head on over to the Shortcuts application and then head into Automations. Click on the “Create a new automation” button and scroll to the bottom and choose “Charge Right Here”. Under “charging is connected” add an action which is going to be airplane mode. When you put your iPhone in airplane mode, it charges a lot faster because it isn’t using any resources from the network or downloading anything.

Once you’ve selected airplane mode, make sure it is turned on, and then turn off “ask before running”. If you’re running iOS 15.4 or newer on your iPhone, you have the ability to turn off notifications when the actual automation is running. The next step is to add another automation by clicking on “Create Personal Automation”. Do the same thing but this time select “when this time is disconnected” instead of connected. Again, select airplane mode and then select “off” so that airplane mode will turn off when you disconnect your iPhone from the charger.

Now, when you plug in your iPhone, it will automatically go into airplane mode and will charge extremely quickly without giving you any notifications. You can also add additional things like lowering the brightness of your iPhone to this automation as well if you like to do that, which will help as well. When you’re ready to disconnect, simply disconnect, and airplane mode will turn off, and everything will go back to normal.

If you’re used to using your phone while you’re charging, then this isn’t for you. But, if you like to plug in your iPhone and have it charge as fast as possible, this is going to be the best automation to have for charging your phone as fast as possible.

In conclusion, if you’re in a rush and need to charge your iPhone quickly, this neat automation trick can help you do just that.
