Let’s face it; battery life is one of the weakest points of any smartphone. Even with all the power-saving features and different modes available, there will always be situations where you have to make compromises to extend that little bit further. An iPhone generally has a good battery life, but as with anything, there are ways to improve it even more. There are several things you can do to get more time from your iPhone’s battery.
Newest iOS 15 features like Battery monitoring and intelligent CPU performance are also great for extending battery life on your device. In this blog post, we'll show you some tips and tricks that will help you extend your iPhone’s battery life without compromising on performance or usability.
Turn On Battery-Saving Mode
The first thing you should do is turn on the “Battery-saving mode” feature. This is an iOS feature that’s designed to extend your device’s battery life. It disables things like animated wallpapers, auto-correct, and vibrations that can be power-hungry features. In addition, this setting disables Siri if you have an iPhone 6s or later. It also kills notifications that have sounds or vibrations and limits background apps to help save battery power.
So, if you are running low on battery, or you know you will be in a place with low reception, you can turn on this feature to help extend your device’s battery life. It’s important to note that this is a temporary feature, and you’ll have to turn it off when you want to go back to normal.
Reduce Screen Brightness
Screen brightness is a major factor in your device’s battery consumption. So, the second thing you can do is turn down your device’s brightness. By reducing the brightness of your screen, you can extend your device’s battery life. If you’re in a place with low reception, you can turn down the brightness or even turn off the screen to save battery life. This way, your device will have more battery remaining when you are back in a place with high reception.
This is an easy thing to do, and you’ll notice the difference in your battery life. However, be careful not to turn the brightness down too low. If you turn it down too far, you may find the screen too dim to see properly.
Turn Off Location Services
If you’re not using this feature, you can turn it off to save battery power. Every time you use an app that requires your location, it uses your device’s battery power. If you don’t need apps to know your location, then you can turn off the Location Services feature to save battery power. Turning this off when you don’t need it will help extend your device’s battery life since it doesn’t need to always be checking your location using your device’s battery power.
Turn Off Bluetooth And AirDrop
If you’re not using these features, you can turn them off to save battery power. If you are not using Bluetooth or have no devices connected to it, you can turn it off to save battery power. The same goes for AirDrop. But, note that you cannot completely turn off AirDrop. Turning these off when you don’t need them will help extend your device’s battery life since it doesn’t need to constantly be checking for nearby devices.
Get Rid Of Background Apps
Knowing which apps drain your battery the most can help you extend your device’s battery life. If you are not using an app and it’s running in the background, you can close it to extend your device’s battery life. Turning off apps that run in the background when you don’t need them will help extend your device’s battery life since it doesn’t have to constantly be processing that app.
Use Dark Mode
Dark Mode allows you to switch your device’s UI to a darker colour scheme. This can help you extend your device’s battery life because the screen doesn’t have to work as hard to display a darker colour scheme. Turning on Dark Mode when you are using your device will help extend your device’s battery life. However, you should note that not all apps support Dark Mode, so you may have to turn it off when using those apps.
Install Battery-Saving Apps
There are a lot of battery-saving apps you can install on your device to extend your device’s battery life. There are apps that can help you turn off certain features, apps that can help you identify and kill apps running in the background, and even apps that can predict how long your device will last based on your usage. But, there are also apps that can extend your device’s battery life by managing your device’s settings for you. These apps can do things like turn off features we mentioned above, but they can also make other changes to your device’s settings to help you extend your battery life.
Batteries generally have a lifespan. Therefore, the best you can do is to prolong them. And, the only way you can do that is to be careful with your device’s battery. Follow these tips and you’ll be extending your device’s battery life in no time. If you have any questions or feedback, please leave a comment below. We’d love to hear from you.
