Ubuntu Touch OTA-13 to Introduce a New Power Manager for Ubuntu Phones, Tablets

In the meantime, it looks like preparations for the next OTA update after OTA-12, the OTA-13, have already started, and the first major change is about to land soon. It’s a new power manager for Ubuntu Touch devices, called repowerd package, which comes as a drop-in replacement for powerd, designed to offer users better power management on their Ubuntu Phones and Tablets, which automatically translates to longer battery life.
