It’s absolutely frustrating when your iPhone’s battery dies on you mid-game or while watching the climax of your favorite movie. Having said that, don’t you sometimes wish your iPhone would stay on just a little longer instead of shutting down before reaching 0% battery?
After having a personal experience of their own along these lines, iOS developer ExeRhythm released a free jailbreak tweak dubbed SpeedrunTime that lets you utilize every last drop of power your iPhone battery can muster before the handset shuts down.
In a nutshell, this tweak lets you keep using your handset until the battery’s charge truly reaches 0% so that you don’t have to worry about sudden forced reboots when you still have a little bit of power remaining.
Many would probably be wondering if this is good for your battery, and the short answer would be “not particularly,” but with a big asterisk. It shouldn’t have a noticeable impact on your battery’s health unless you’re doing this every single day, which is probably unlikely. Further, it can be good to fully discharge your battery once in a while, as it helps to calibrate the battery controller.
Keep in mind that the tweak is only intended for those fringe scenarios where you might be trying to avoid the charger for as long as possible. While this probably happens to some users more often than others, I can only count anywhere from 2-5 times where this has actually happened to me in the last several years, so keep that factor in mind.
Something worth noting about SpeedrunTime is that it was built using the Swift programming language by way of the Orion development tool. So I’m addition to being a potentially useful tweak, it’s created using a modern coding platform.
Those interested in giving SpeedrunTime can download it for free from ExeRhythm’s personal repository via their favorite package manager app, and it should run on all jailbroken iOS 14 devices without so much as a hiccup.
The developer has also open-sourced the tweak on GitHub for those interested in learning more about how it works.

Do you have any plans to live dangerously and use every last bit of battery power your iPhone has to offer, or will you stay on the safer side of things and let the operating system shut your handset down before you’re ready? Let us know in the comments section down below.
