Hi,

Is there a way to set up a shortcut that locks the iPad when it hits a certain battery percentage level? My brothers keep playing on my iPad when I told them to stop playing after a certain percentage level.

Thanks

I don't think so, but take it away from them until they listen to you.

What is that "certain percentage level" that you don't want to go below? 0% is automatic. ;)
Your iPad can switch to low power mode when the battery drops below 20%, or you can set it to use the low-power mode anytime your brothers are playing. Your brothers will be able to use it longer in that low power mode.
Or, let them use your charger.

Best bet is just have it trigger an alert to “Plug me in”
I’m setting up an automation that turns on a 1 second timer and send me a message, then an automation on my phone will send a message back to them. We’ll see if it works.

Pick up a $100 used iPad for them to use. 😀
True, but they might be paying for it, since I’m still in high school😅. Also, they like to play Minecraft, and it can be pretty hard even on my iPad 6th Gen (It makes the iPad freeze when I turn it off and leave the Minecraft on) The game is pretty glitchy and laggy on our iPad Air 1.
