Let me give you one more reason why you should explore the Shortcuts framework on your iOS or macOS device.
Remind me to charge my test phone
I mainly use my primary iPhone, but for testing I use an older iPhone running iOS Beta. Up until now, I struggled to keep the test phone charged. Typically I would pull it out of the bag and … you know the rest of this story, right?
I put together this quick but very useful shortcut. Whenever charge level drops below 10 %, the secondary phone will automatically send me an iMessage with a reminder. That’s it. Simple. Useful.
How does it work
Simply create a new Shortcut on the secondary iOS device, using the Shortcuts app. Select Send Message action and enter your iMessage details.
Now, in the Automation section, configure the trigger that executes this action. Set it to run whenever battery level drops below 10 %.
Then hit Done.
