Poor battery life for the iPhone can cause a wide range of issues. However, it is possible to get the most out of a full battery charge by using the built-in apps and resources in the right way. Here are six useful tips to extend the usable life of the iPhone Battery:
The iPhone has a clever app refresh feature that takes place in the background. This app detects the most used programs and makes sure they are constantly kept up to date with the latest version. If you use many different apps on a daily basis, this can mean the iPhone is doing a lot of work when it should really be asleep. By preventing background app refresh it is possible to easily extend the battery life.
The auto-brightness option is the less power intensive option for controlling the screen brightness. The iPhone does also have an ambient light sensor that sits in the background and adjusts the brightness as required to match the situation. But, leaving this type of app or similar feature constantly running in the background will quickly use up the battery life.
Leaving Bluetooth on constantly will soon start to use up the battery life. If you aren’t likely to be using it for several days, you may as well turn it off.
The iPhone has built-in GPS which is practical for giving driving instructions, finding a restaurant, or other map uses. Many people rarely use location services, so it can benefit to turn this feature off to help save battery.
Automatically update apps
Most of the apps downloaded are designed to automatically update when the latest version is released. If you have a lot of apps that don’t get used often, you may find it more practical to turn this feature off and update the most used apps on a manual basis.
Run down your battery
You don’t need to entirely run down the battery life before the next charge. It can benefit to avoid letting the lithium-ion battery reach 0%. The preferred option is to keep the battery charge at about 50% or more. Once the battery life drops below this mark, you may want to give it a recharge. However, it is not necessary to complete a full recharge on a daily basis. Constantly charging the battery to 100% over the long-term will start to shorten its usable lifespan. The best option is to keep the lithium-ion battery charged to about 40% to 80% for the best long-term performance.
