Turn On Ultra Power Saving Mode


Use Ultra power saving mode to switch your device's screen to grayscale and turn off nonessential applications so you get the maximum battery life. Location services, and connectivity features such as Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth®, will also be turned off in Ultra power saving mode. With Ultra power saving mode turned on, even if you're down to a 10% charge, you can receive calls and texts for up to 24 hours.*
