Among shortcuts that you can create in the app, you can configure it to send an alert as soon as your iPhone’s recharge reaches its maximum charge, ie 91% power. This is very useful to ensure good battery health, as it is not good practice to keep the device connected to the charger for long periods of time — although optimized charging also helps with this task.

The app Shortcuts is native to the latest versions of the iPhone OS, you can find it on the Home Screen or Apps Library. If you have deleted it, you can download it for free from the App Store.
