An app goes into App standby mode under the following conditions:
- You're not charging the phone.
- You haven't opened or used the app for a few days.
- There are no foreground activities running. For example, the app is not playing music or streaming content.
- The app doesn't have pending notifications.
During App standby, an idle app will have network access at least once a day. Activities such as app syncing will be deferred until network access is available.
