How to Use Low Power Mode
The Low Power Mode is a new feature of the iOS 9 update. Apple claims the new mode can extend your battery life up to three hours. Low Power mode reduces or turns off mail fetch, background app refresh, automatic downloads, and some visual effects. When enabled, the battery icon, at the top of your phone, will appear yellow.

Open Settings.

Tap Battery.

Slide the circle right, turning on Power Mode. If it's the first time, a message will pop up: tap Continue.
