Using Battery Saving Mode

If your battery power level is draining, you can set up Battery Saving Mode to turn on automatically and help make your battery last longer when you need it most! When Battery Saving Mode is turned on, your device automatically adjusts various settings to help save battery power. If you need to save more battery power, you can also adjust additional settings. For example, you can choose to turn off data services or location services to save more battery power.

By default, Battery Saving Mode turns on automatically when your battery power level is 20% or lower. You can also turn on Battery Saving Mode manually at any time.
