Apple, while discussing about the improvements it did in iOS 9, revealed that with iOS 9, the iPhone 6 will be able to deliver another one hour of battery life for the users. But that was not all. Apple further stated that the new ‘Low Power Mode’ in iOS was meant to further stretch the battery life to a whopping 3 hours! Though there is no proof for this claim made by the company, there is no reason to doubt it and is a very exciting improvement, given that iPhone users many-a-times complain about not getting better battery life. This strong improvement can prove to be a great advantage for all the users – be it a common user or a high-end developer.
Apple has already made the iOS 9 available for download to all iOS users . if you have a compatible device , you can download and install iOS 9 on your device and test the “Low Power Mode” feature thoroughly.
Steps to Enable Low Power Mode in iOS 9 :
Enabling the ‘Low Power Mode’ on iOS 9 devices is very simple and straightforward. Just follow the below-given steps.
- Go to the “Settings” application on your iPhone or iPad.
- Scroll to the “Battery” section. You can find it beneath the “Touch ID & Passcode”.
- Tap on the “Battery” option.
- Now switch ON the “Low Power Mode“.
Done ! Now you can squeeze out the last drops of life from your battery at the time when you need it urgently.
How Low Power mode Works :
Please remember that there is no wizardry involved in this, and enabling the ‘Low Power Mode’ will reduce your networking activity and the device’s performance levels in order to prolong the battery life. When you switch on the ‘Low Power Mode’, animated wallpapers, Background App Refresh, motion effects, and Mail fetch will all get disabled to compensate for the battery. You will have to switch OFF the ‘Low Power Mode’ in order to be able to use these features again.
This serious boost in the battery life was actually be the major highlight of the entire WWDC 2015, as the battery life is the most demanded aspect where improvements are always appreciated by normal users and developers alike. The extensive use of Facebook and other social apps with the regular internet browsing, not forgetting the normal calling, drains the battery very quickly. Apart from these uses, common users also want to enjoy high-end games on their iOS devices while keeping the internet connection always on. So the ‘Low Power Mode’ is definitely a strong leap.
