If you have an iPhone, chances are you are very familiar with the low power mode of the mobile, an option that helps preserve battery life and better conserve it.
Now the Mac also has a low power mode and does something very similar – it reduces power consumption by automatically lowering the screen brightness as well as the system clock speed. It also has other obvious advantages, such as being quieter.
This low power mode is available on the MacBook line (early 2006 and later) and MacBook Pros (early 2016 and later) using macOS Monterey. We show you how to activate it:
- Launch ‘System Preferences’
- Select the ‘Battery’ panel
- In the left column, click on ‘Battery’. Check the box for low power mode if you want to use it in times when the computer is running low on battery.
You can also activate the low power mode when the laptop is connected to the power outlet. In the left column, click on “AC adapter”.
Check the “Low Power Mode” box if you want to use it while your MacBook is plugged into the power outlet. Presumably, your Mac will run quieter when activated.
There is no quick way to turn Low Power Mode on or off in macOS as it is currently not available from “Control Center” or the “Battery” menu bar item. . This may change in a later version than macOS Monterey.
Consultation all the news that Apple has highlighted from the macOS version Monterey and that are to come once the final version of the operating system is announced.
