iphone_6_iphone_6_plusOne of the most persistent problems of iPhones is poor battery performance. The battery is not capable of sustaining power for long hours even when the phone is not multitasking. The following smart tips are meant to guide you on how to get more of your iPhone’s battery life:

1. Minimise Screen Brightness
The default screen brightness for iPhones is extremely bright, leading to the consumption of more battery power. Setting brightness to the lowest level not only helps you preserve battery life, but also helps you protect your eyes.

2. Turn Off Bluetooth
Although blasting your favourite music out of your wireless speakers or making an important call using your wireless headset is useful, especially when you are driving, it harms the battery. Turning off the Bluetooth technology when you are not using it helps you save some battery life.

3. Set the Phone to Go Into Sleep Mode after a Couple of Seconds
When not in use, the screen of your iPhone times out and goes black after a certain period of time, saving battery life. You have the freedom to adjust how long you want your phone to stay lit up after you are through with making a call or sending a message. To save more power, set the phone to go into sleep mode after some few seconds or after one minute.

4. Turn Off Location Services
Many apps on your iPhone are designed to suggest attractions and restaurants in your local area or attach your location to a Facebook or Tweeter post. To save some power, be sure to turn off any app or location service that you don’t really need.

5. Turn Off Push E-mail
Push e-mail tends to drain too much battery power. Turning this feature off and fetching data less often enables you to save the life of your device’s battery.

6. Utilise Airplane Mode
Airplane Mode effectively cuts off all calls, data transfers, texts, e-mails, and notifications, enabling you to save power. This feature is particularly useful when you are in a closed door meeting or when you phone is about to go off.

7. Turn Off 4G LTE
Even though the iPhone’s 4G LTE network is one if its most amazing features, using the incredible Internet speeds all the time is not good for battery life. So, if you are really committed to saving battery power, simply avoid using it. Instead, look for a reliable [tp lang=”en” only=”y”]best fibre broadband[/tp][tp not_in=”en”]best fibre broadband[/tp] provider within your locality that offers Internet services at reasonable speeds and rates.

8. Turn Off Background App Refresh
Background App Refresh enables apps to connect and update automatically in the background whenever the phone is connected to Wi-Fi or cellular service. This means that your phone keeps on looking for data for all the apps running in the background, causing the battery to lose power fast. Turning this feature off can help you extend the life of the battery.

I don’t know why iPhone hasn’t save battery mode like Android. I’m using Android for long time now and this feature is very good as well.

iPhone becomes the world’s most selling smartphone, everyone likes it, they customize it alot but why iPhone battery sucks? While comparing battery I love Android phones because the life spam of battery is far better than Apple. I hope they’ll look into battery soon.
