Most iPhone users complain of short battery life, irrespective of whether the device is used excessively or not. Well, there are quite a few ways that would help in retaining the battery charged for longer should you want to try.
- Try to use your Apple iPhone within temperature range of 32°F to 95°C. Always remember that extreme temperatures, mainly heat, will drastically degrade the life of the battery.
- Keep the brightness of the device to a lower yet as per your comfortable level.
- When you are done using the phone for the time being, lock it manually. Also, set your iPhone to go to sleep if it remains inactive for one minute.
- Turn off Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, 3G services or any other applications that you are not using at any point of time.
- Deactivate “Push” if immediacy is not a concern since it devours battery charge as it requires checking servers constantly for incoming mails. It is better to configure “Fetch” as per your requirements.
- Power-cycle your iPhone battery atleast once a month. The process is to charge your phone to 100% and then using it until it turns off automatically due to lack of power. Thereafter, recharge again. This would move the electrons around thereby keeping the lithium-ion cell fit.
- Uninstall new apps to check power consumption since at times certain apps drain the power away.
- Resetting all iOS settings can also help without erasing your data, apps, photos or contacts.
