What Does Low Power Mode Do on Mac?

By lowering the screen brightness and reducing the processor’s clock speed, Low Power Mode reduces the amount of energy consumed by a Mac. Apps on Mac perform slower, and the screen appears darker than usual.

In a sense, it is similar to iPhone Low Power Mode in that it makes Mac operate more quietly. Mac users cannot choose a specific percentage threshold for Low Power Mode to activate automatically.

Which Macs Support Low Power Mode?

MacOS 12 Monterey and later updates support Low Power Mode on MacBook (Early 2016 and later) and MacBook Pro (Early 2016 and later). According to Apple, there will be no Low Power Mode for MacBook Air models in December 2021. Depending on future developments, it could change.
