The AirFlare home screen will prompt you to optimize your phone’s battery. This is optional. If you’re only out for the day, optimizing your battery probably isn’t necessary, but if you’re out for days or longer, optimizing your battery is recommended.
On iPhones, optimize your battery by putting your phone into Low Power Mode (Settings –> Battery –> Low Power Mode ON). This setting will conserve your battery for a week or longer, and will not disable any AirFlare features.
On Android, optimize your battery by putting your phone into Airplane Mode (Settings –> Network & Internet –> Airplane Mode ON) and re-enabling Wi-Fi and Bluetooth This setting will conserve your battery for a week or longer, but will disable AirFlare’ in-cell-service features such as Location Return and Location Sharing. However, your phone will still be discoverable by a search team using an AirFlare Detector. Alternatively, most Android phones have a “Battery Saver” setting that will not preserve your battery for quite as long, but will retain AirFlare’s in-cell-service features.
