iPhone battery life is the bane of all ours lives. The instant panic when your phone hits five percent is a feeling shared by many around the world.

However, there is a trick to keeping your phone alive for a little bit longer and it's known as the Low Power Mode.

For most iPhone iOS 9 users, the option automatically comes on when our phones hit 20 percent.

However, if the mere thought of not being able to charge your phone the entire day sends you into a panic, all of the above are small sacrifices to make.
