If there is one problem in which many iPhone users want improved with every iteration of the smartphone, it would be its battery life. While the phone’s potentials and capabilities grow each year, many question as to why the battery is only being slightly improved (if there are any improvements). Nevertheless, there are some workarounds to make sure that you get the most out of the battery out of Apple’s smartphone.
Making the Most Out of the iPhone’s Battery
Step 1 – The first thing you have to do on your iPhone is to check which apps are draining the battery life. It should be noted that closing apps by enabling the app manager and swiping them away will not improve the device’s overall battery life. As a matter of fact, there is even a good chance of it decreasing the smartphone’s battery life. This is because the handset will have to load the applications into memory and will have to relaunch them the next time you have to access them. The best way to do this is to head on to Settings, and then go to Battery. In here, you will be able to see how much time are running within the background, as well as how much battery power of each app is being used. Should an application be draining to much battery in the background, even when you’re not using it, then you can stop it from running in the background.
Step 2 – If you’re about to head out into the world with no power outlet in or charging station in sight, then you might want to enable Low Power Mode. Ever since the dawn of iOS 9 for the iPhone, the feature has been added to the list. What it does is that your phone reduce battery consumption by disabling mail fetch, Hey Siri, background app refresh, automatic downloads for apps, and some visual effects.
Step 3 – But if you want to make the most out of the battery of your iPhone, then perhaps the best way to do it is to purchase a battery case or a power bank. This will enable you to eke out more juice from your smartphone’s battery so that you can use it more. These items are perfect for playing Pokémon Go, as it is known to drain the handset’s battery like there’s no tomorrow. Aside from playing this hit game from Niantic Labs, you can also make sure that you won’t miss that important business call from a client.
