It is now available iOS 17 for compatible iPhones, with a good batch of new features. Some of them are familiar to us on Android, and we can have others thanks to the ingenuity of the developers. An example of this is the Sleep modeor Standby mode.
Sleep mode turns your iPhone into a kind of smart speaker, making it useful when you leave it charging horizontally on a stand. If you like the idea and your phone does not have ambient mode (the native equivalent of Android), you can have a clone of sleep mode with a free application.
Sleep mode for Android
If you want your Android mobile to become a kind of mix between a watch and a smart speaker, you can achieve it with the help of StandBy iOS, an application that imitates the sleep mode of iOS 17 quite convincingly.
The application is free in its basic version, which does not include all the designs and shows advertising (although not too many), so you can try it without problems before deciding if you are going to check out. By the way The Pro version, without limits or ads, is very cheapcosts 0.89 euros.
With the launch of iOS 17, without a doubt, we are going to find on Android all kinds of clones regarding the functions and appearance of the apple operating system, and There are already a few clones of sleep mode, of lesser or greater quality. Standby by iOS 17 is acceptable with a mix of similarity and new designs.
The app itself is quite simple, as you would expect. When we open it we will see different designs of clocks, calendars and various widgets with the intention of making your phone look prettier when you are not using it and it is connected. The designs are quite varied and include versions similar to those of iOS 17 and other unique ones.
Without paying, some designs are not available, although you can see them for a couple of seconds to get an idea of what they look like. Some of these watches display contextual information such as the weather in our area, others are animated and there are even some that have their own music. Some of them are also customizable.
What makes this app stand out from the handful of iOS 17 sleep mode clones that are already populating Google Play is that it is quite polished in that it It can be configured to start automatically when you put your phone on charge, something we have not seen in other similar applications. In addition, it has the effect of protecting the screen against possible burning.
As we mentioned, you can try the application without problems without paying and ads appear very occasionallyalthough if doubling the sleep mode of iOS 17 is something of your interest, those 0.89 euros that the Pro version costs will surely pay off soon.
