Apple has ported a popular app from its mobile operating system, iOS, to its desktop operating system, macOS Monterey. Do you have any idea what it could be? Low Power Mode, you heard that right! Low Power Mode is a feature that you can set in macOS Monterey to automatically preserve battery life by lowering the screen brightness and slowing down the system clock speed. This can be done by selecting the option.
What exactly is Mac’s low-power mode?
As its name suggests, switching to Low Power Mode on your MacBook helps to make the battery last longer. The function decreases the amount of energy that is consumed, thereby extending the battery’s life and making the device run more quietly. There is no reason to be worried when the battery life of your MacBook drops below 20%. You can quickly activate the Low Power Mode.
How to enable low power mode on your Mac
As part of the macOS Ventura update, Apple implemented a comprehensive overhaul of the System Preferences menu, which is now known as the System Settings menu. Under the “Battery” option is where you’ll discover the “Low Power Mode.”
1. Open System Settings
2. Click on the Battery option
3. Choose Battery from the menu on the left.
Make sure the box for Low power mode is checked. To remove the lock from this box, you may need to click on the lock icon located at the bottom of the page.
There are three chooses for the low power mode
Always: It maintains a state in which the Low Power Mode is active continuously. We do not advise going with this particular option. If you want to edit videos, high-resolution images, or create any kind of content on your MacBook, you should be aware that there will be performance issues and the export time will be longer than usual.
Only on battery mode: The moment you disconnect the power adapter and begin running your MacBook off of the battery, macOS will automatically switch to a low power mode.
Only on Power Adapter: Selecting this option will cause the Low Power Mode to become active whenever your MacBook is connected to an external power supply. If you charge your MacBook using a charger that has a high wattage, you won’t find it useful until you also use a low-wattage charger.
After determining which options is applicable for your, switch your Mac into Low Power Mode.
