How to turn off clean energy charging on iPhone

If you are an iPhone user, you need to know how to disable green energy charging. In an effort to reduce the carbon footprint of the iPhone, Apple has introduced a new feature in iOS 16 called Green Energy Charging. However, despite the laudable goals, not everyone wants Apple to decide how to charge their iPhone.

This feature aims to reduce the environmental impact of the device by changing the charging schedule depending on the energy sources feeding the electrical grid. Therefore, if you consume power for a long time (for example, overnight), iPhone optimizes its charging when the grid is powered by renewable sources.

iPhone can do this by getting a carbon forecast from your local power grid and using it in conjunction with Optimized Battery Charging and Location Services to charge your phone efficiently.

When Clean Energy Charging pauses charging, a notification appears on the lock screen to let you know when your iPhone is fully charged. If you need to fully charge your iPhone sooner, touch and hold the notification, then tap Charge Now.

Opt out feature, meaning it is enabled by default. If you want to disable green energy charging on iPhone, you need to follow the steps below.

Turn off the “Clean Energy Charging” feature at the bottom of the “Battery Status and Charging” page, you should see a “Clean Energy Charging” toggle option. You can slide it to the right at any time to turn this feature back on.

When you turn this feature off, Apple will give you the option to turn it back on tomorrow or turn it off permanently.

That’s all you need to know to disable clean energy charging. If you plan on leaving it on, you’ll need to turn on Optimized Battery Charging, which you’ll see above the Clean Power Charging toggle on the same Battery Health and Charging page.
