Does Low Power Mode Work?

We're going to explain whether or not low power mode actually saves iPhone battery life. And the truth is that it does but not in the most efficient ways. Yes. This is not something that you should wake up roll out of bed and turn on every single day or at least have to.

What low power mode actually does?

So this is on Apple's website. They know what they're talking about. Yes, I hope so.

Does Low Power Mode Work?

Low power mode reduces or affects these features or Email fetch. Hey Siri, Background app refresh, automatic downloads, some visual effects, auto-lock which defaults to 30 seconds, and iCloud Photos which is temporarily paused.

One big problem we have with low power mode is related to background app refresh. You do not want to turn that off for every single app on your iPhone. Now if you use sports apps for instance you're probably gonna wanna know what the score is and have those stay up to date. It's kind of just turning off all these great features and completely when the problem should be addressed on an individual level. And you could do that.

Hey Siri, we don't want to set off everything in the house. We like that feature and I'm not really sure how much battery life you save by turning that off necessarily. Not a lot. I remember when they came out with that feature when I was always listening. Nobody ever thought that was creepy.

We recommend switching your mail from Push to fetch anyway so I will show you to do that in this article. It's one of our favorite iPhone battery tips. Visual effects, auto-lock, iCloud photos, automatic downloads. Fine. You'll save some battery life nothing better.

1. Open up the Settings app.

2. Scroll down to the battery.

3. Tap on low power mode. There you go.

Your battery icon turns yellow with a lot of have questions about that. They don't know what's going on Man. Your low-power model turns off automatically once you reach 80% battery life which people who are addicted to low power mode find very annoying because they wake up every day and they have to go and do it or it's in the control Center.

2. Background app refresh
So Let's go back to the Background app refresh and why you don't want to turn that off entirely. As you said some apps you want to have download content in the background of your iPhone what we recommend doing is going to the Background app refresh menu and just turning it off for apps that don't need it and having them off all the time.

1. Let's go back to the main page of Settings.

2. Tap on General.

3. Tap on background app refresh. Background app refreshes off. Because Low Power mode is on.

So what I'm going to do is I'm good turn off Low Power mode but that. So you will see you have a background app refresh ON for everything right now. I wonder if that happens when you turn the Low power mode off again? Not sure. Maybe.

So just hear any apps you don't need downloading new content in the background of your iPhone is tap the switch. Turn it off. I usually turn off the FQ app. I don't need background app refreshes from Bank.

Let's go through this list Uncheck with things that don't need. It's pretty simple to do.

3. Fetch mail

We recommend switching from Push to Fetch anyway. Push Mail is the default setting where your iPhone maintains this constant connection to your email server so it's always ready to receive new messages. But with Fetch, your iPhone only checks once every X number of minutes. So you need to cite how often your iPhone checks to see if there's new mail. It's probably one of the most common things that we recommend you do and it can save you a ton of battery life.

1. So we'll go back to the main page of the Settings app.

2. Scroll down to passwords and accounts to have to Fetch new data currently set to push. I'm going to turn off that switch and then underneath Fetch here, we recommend every 15-minutes.

And you can always open the mail app and it'll catch a new mail for you. Whenever you open that. So you're never really gonna notice a difference. I guess you're just one of those people that needs to know this second. I got an email. I hope you found this helpful. Give it a share. Leave us a comment down below with any other questions.
