Scroll to the bottom and it tells you what needs to be on for this feature to work. I guess I’ll never use this because I don’t want to turn on those location services! I wish they would have a different way to enable it!!!

Significant Locations resides on your device and are end-to-end encrypted. They’re not stored on Apple’s servers if you’re worried about privacy.

What is beyond me is why iOS doesn’t warn you when you enable a feature that requires an other feature to be enabled... like « hey, you enabled optimized charging but significant location is disabled, so it won’t work » :rolleyes:

Anyway, thanks because I missed that one and wondered why it doesn’t work since 3 months

Well, I have all of the services on, but my iPhone Xs just isn't working with optimized charging since iOS 13 came out.

I charge the phone same every night. I always put it on the charger at around 10:30 PM and take it off the charger at around 7:20 am next morning. And I have this routine since MONTHS. Guess what: optimise charging isn't working for me. No clue why.

Do I need to activate "Bedtime"? I activated everything the article says but battery optimization doesn't work.

I have all of that turned on and it has never worked for me.... ever. Didn’t work on my iPhone X and doesn’t now on my iPhone 11 Pro.

Funny thing is that on my brother's iPhone it is working, with the same active options as my device, and on my iPhone it is not working.

It feels overthunk on apple’s part. It would have been great if they had simply tied the feature to the alarm, or at least had given an option for it if you don’t want to use location services.

For example if I’m setting an alarm for 8am there would be an option to optimize charging in the hours leading up to that alarm.
