StandBy Mode is the new feature introduced on iOS 17 that puts your iPhone into sleep mode. In this mode, your iPhone limits battery usage when not in use. This feature is especially useful for people who want to save battery life while still receiving notifications and calls. However, not all devices are compatible with iOS 17 StandBy mode. So, in this guide, we will help you know which devices support the iOS 17 StandBy mode.

In these iPhones, the StandBy mode is turned on by default. However, iOS 17 released as Public Beta for now. So, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro model users only can use this feature for now.
