iDownload Blog reports that one new feature of iOS 9 is proving to be a great asset in terms of helping iPhone users extend their phone’s battery life.

You have most likely already noticed the new “Low Power Mode” that is available at Settings > Battery. In the mode’s description it says that it “temporarily reduces power consumption until you can fully charge your iPhone.” But, according to iDownload Blog, Matt Birchler asked the question, “what if you ran Low Power Mode on your iPhone all of the time?” and not just when your phone’s charge is running down? Birchler set out to find the answer, and the results of his investigations are very interesting indeed. To sum up Birchler’s lengthy conclusions, he said “on average, my iPhone chewed through battery 38.7% slower when in Low Power Mode.” And at certain times of the day, when he is using the phone less, he found that battery usage was cut by almost half.
