Optimized Charging is not practical if you aren't on the same schedule all the time.

As to leaving the battery charging, create a Siri shortcut that turns off your phone charger once your phone gets to the battery charge level you want. That is what I do. I am surprised Dan didn't suggest that.

I’m fairly certain optimized battery charging does not work if you turn off significant locations.
In fact…

Sometimes there are bugs in iOS
I’m pretty sure my battery is draining faster under 14.5.1…. I noticed that exposure notification and the AppStore are high in my percentage rankings. AppStore has spent 3m running in the background and consumed 27% battery…

I use optimized battery charging and never get that message. Just because the message isn't appearing doesn't mean its not working in the background. Thanks for the big iphone pic.
