You Want Better Battery Life

If you own an iPhone and you want improved battery life, you'll want to consider installing the iOS 9 update as soon as it arrives. 

iOS 9 is set to bring some tangible battery life boosts to the table. And that should be extremely exciting for iPhone users that are in need of some more juice. 

The iOS 9 update will deliver one hour of additional battery life to the iPhone. The company says that "apps and key technologies have been made more efficient to trim battery usage wherever possible" and that will translate into an instant bump to your phone's battery.

Apple isn't lying about this change. We've found that the iOS 9 update does deliver more impressive battery life than iOS 8. And that's not all either.

iOS 9 also includes a low energy mode that can add up to three hours of added use when turned on. The feature does this by limiting your device's network activity. For instance, it will disable background app refresh if it's turned on. That's big and it's a feature that we love.
