“There’s a big difference between the days when I used iPhone in a power saving mode. Even the best days in normal mode do not go to any comparison with those days when I used Low Power Mode. On average, my iPhone was out of juice 38.7% slower” – describes the experience Birchler.
“After work I use the device mainly work with applications for productivity. But during working hours, when the screen most of the time is off, the power saving mode can extend the working time by 44%. It’s true: Low Power Mode may increase the autonomy of your iPhone up to half”, he added.
Technology energy savings in the iOS 9 is called “power saving Mode”. In the beta versions it was called “low power Mode”. The switch function placed in a special section of the Battery. Here, Apple has transferred the usage statistics of the mobile device indicating usage time since last charge, and toggle “Battery percentage”.
