macOS Monterey Brings Low Power Mode to the Mac

The macOS 12 Monterey update that Apple introduced today brings a key iPhone feature over to the Mac – Low Power Mode. On Apple’s Monterey page that breaks down all of the new updates, there’s a listing for Low Power Mode.


According to Apple, Low Power Mode reduces the system clock speed and the display brightness in order to extend your battery life even further. This means that if you’re doing less intensive tasks like watching videos or browsing the web, you can eke even more out of your Mac’s battery.

According to Apple, Low Power Mode on the Mac is compatible with the MacBook (Early 2016 and later) and MacBook Pro (Early 2016 and later).

Low Power Mode has long been available on the ‌iPhone‌, but this is the first time that it’s been brought to another Apple device. Low Power Mode is now an ‌iPhone‌ and Mac exclusive, as Apple has not expanded it to the iPad.
