Apple made an announcement of the new iOS 9 back in June, and finally released for public in September 2015. Apple has fulfilled all the claims that they made during their announcement: improved Siri, enhanced photos function and low power mode. Looking at the present scenario, most impressive feature is the low power mode option. (Low power mode is not available for iPad)

In today’s world almost all our tasks are directly or indirectly related to our smart devices and in such cases, battery drain is the biggest worry for all. Apple very well understands the issue and thus, introduced a low power mode option in iOS 9. Apple claims that by turning on the low power mode, Apple device will gain extra three hours of battery life.

    I just downloaded this update and my battery is dying at the speed of light. I’m not in low power mode, but now when I’m using my phone on wifi I can watch my battery drain in a matter of minutes. I don’t understand why my phone was BETTER with the old update.

    No low power option for iPad Air 1. The suck.

  • Investor9872 .

    The low power option is NOT there for both my iPad mini and iPad mini Retina, with both at 75% right now. The option is just not there for me to select it. Maybe they forgot to make that low power option to the iPads.
