iOS 9 brings a new 'Low power' mode and general battery improvements

Apple outlined several high profile changes to its mobile operating system with iOS 9, like Slide Over (split screen), improvements to Siri and the platform's general contextual awareness, and various changes to built-in apps. One rather important change that the company literally glossed over, however, has to do with battery life, and it's well worth mentioning...

My iPhone's standby time is amazing, so any welcomed improvements to battery life is greatly accepted.

Man, you must be living in a perfect world. We were touring Boston today and my mom's iPhone 6 conked out around 3PM. And using the iPhone 6 Plus's merely average battery life isn't a good excuse; first of all not everyone wants a phone that big.

I know the 6 battery capacity is quite small or really small by today standard, but the 6 plus have bigger capacity almost close to their competitor isn't it? Why people complaining about battery life? (are they joking or trolling? same when someone whining about note 4 poor battery life). Never had experience with 6 plus but i own iPad which battery life in standby mode is excellent, though on screen battery life is on par with competitor.

iphone 6 and 6 plus got really good standby time cause iOS stops any tasks, unlike Android which keeps them on. Android M however, fixes this issue. And I'm just stating facts, so you know why your iPhone has good standby time.

lame.Now they care about battery life. Samsung were using Ultra saving mode for some time and the ram management + power optimizer in Android M is far superior than this piece of crap
