While the Apple Watch shows us on the iPhone when it is fully charged, there is no way to tell on the iPhone. Fortunately, we can create our own notification for the iPhone to tell us when its battery is at 100%. And let Siri tell us, with this little trick.
Create a notification with your iPhone charging
In order for Siri to notify you when your battery is charged, we’ll need to resort to shortcuts. Although it might seem intimidating given the enormous possibilities of this app, the truth is that our trick requires very few steps. We will start by opening the Shortcuts app on the iPhone and we will go to the Automation section. We will click on the “+” symbol to create a personal automation and we will come across several options.
Almost at the bottom we have the ones dedicated to charging the iPhone battery. We will choose Battery level, we will slide the bar to 100% battery and make sure that the option “This is 100%” is the one chosen before pressing Next.
Now that we have chosen the “event” trigger, we need to choose what happens when it is triggered. In the actions we can navigate until we find the option “Read text with voice”, although it is better to use the search engine. We select it and specify in the field the phrase we want, in our case we want Siri to tell us “Your iPhone is already charged”.
By clicking on next, we will have a summary of the action that will be performed. It is very important that we remove the option “Ask for confirmation”, because when the event is completed, the iPhone will ask us to confirm that we want to receive the notice. This prevents the operation of the same as we had planned.
How to receive a notification or sound when your iPhone is charging
This same automation can be adapted so that you receive a notification or a sound is played on your iPhone. To do this, just follow these steps:
When choosing the action that will perform the “event” we chose earlier, we need to look for “Notification”. There we will find two types that interest us: Show notification or Play sound. We choose one of the two and we personalize it, either with a message in the first case, or with a specific sound in the second.
Unfortunately, these alerts won’t work on Apple Watch. That is why it is more convenient to use Siri to inform us of the charge level of our iPhone. Of course, be prepared to hear your assistant’s voice without warning.
