If you mean this message:



Probably to prevent you from using it with 1% left and running it down again.

Because the iPhone draws like 3% battery when it turns on and its a failsafe incase it is unplugged when booting.

It's to charge up to 4%. Safety measure to prevent software corruption by forcing the phone to shut down with too little battery power remaining.
