Pokemon Go Battery Saving Mode Returns With New Update

Niantic has released a new update for Pokemon and fans will be happy to know that it restores the battery saving mode. It seems Niantic finally heard the community and released this demanded feature.

The game originally released with its battery saving mode but it suddenly disappeared. The feature is only available for Pokemon Go on iOS. To use this feature all you need to do is turn your Phone upside down which is going to dim the screen.

Niantic has also added a reminder for Trainers that they shouldn’t play while traveling above a certain speed.

Here are the patch notes for the latest update:

  • Added a dialog to remind Trainers that they should not play while traveling above a certain speed; Trainers will have to indicate they aren’t the driver
  • Fixed a bug that prevented ”Nice,” ”Great,” and “Excellent” Poké Ball throws from awarding the appropriate XP bonuses
  • Enabled the ability for Trainers to change their nickname one time, so please choose your new nickname wisely
  • Resolved issues with the battery saver mode on iOS and re-enabled the feature
  • Other fixes

Pokemon Go will get updates every two weeks so expect more features to be added and more fixes to be made.
