    Just saw this new feature in the settings. I'm assuming it takes less power to show black instead of white, but based on this assumption, wouldn't it use less power?

    No. I think white on black is for colour blind people or something.

    If you are trying to save battery life then turning your brightness down is the best thing you can do.

    white on black is an accessibility feature added on the 3rd gen and later touches it takes more power for the screen to do that because displaying black takes more energy then displaying white. To save battery turn down brightness, turn off wifi and bluetooth.
