    If you want a super level up do this –> go out of the app. Press and hold the app until it starts to wiggle on the screen and an “X” appears in the right corner. Press the “X” and ta da! Your life will be much happier!!

    There was no point to it on iPhone, because battery usage is the same on an LED screen no matter what the color is (what matters is the brightness of the backlight). It would make a difference on an OLED display, maybe they kept the option for Android. On iPhone, it was only useful to avoid accidental input when removing the iPhone from a pocket.
