As advertised with the release of iOS 9, Low Battery Mode can be activated on most modern iPhones to conserve power.

My question is, why doesn't the iPad support Low Battery Mode? It would seem to have the capability to – is there an official or proven answer as to why not?

(I am using an iPad Air 2)


'Why' is always difficult to answer.

That it doesn't appear to work on iPads would seem to be of concern to many people, but there doesn't appear to be any answer as to why.

iPads already have so much battery life, and generally they are not used as a means for emergency communication, like the iPhone. There would be more of a need for iPhones, because it can be more costly if they die. I also think Apple wants iPads to always be running at full power, and low power mode disables some features that decrease CPU usage and such things like that. That is my speculation at least.
