There’s also a clock icon to the right that will tell you exactly how long each app has been running on screen and in the background. When you go to the bottom of this screen, you’ll see the total usage time since the last full charge and the time that the phone was in standby. Android users should open the Settings app from the app drawer and open the “Battery” option.
