iPhone battery life is a constant battle with each new iPhone and iOS update. Here I’ll share the top 10 things I do to improve my iPhone Battery Life with you!
1. Close multitasking apps running in the background
Double-click on your home button and simply swipe up on open apps to close them.
2. Disable notifications on apps that you don’t absolutely need
To do this on your iPhone, go to Settings > Notifications and make sure “sort manually” is checked, next choose each app and turn off “allow notifications ” on all apps that you don’t absolutely need to receive notifications from.
3. Turn off apps in the background app refresh
This will turn off apps that will refresh in the background automatically using up precious iPhone battery life. Turn this feature off by going to Settings > General >Background App Refresh and you can toggle them all off , or you can turn off individual apps one at a time.
4. Turn on the reduce motion setting
This’ll remove the parallax affect that contributes to iPhone battery drain. You can disable the parallax effect by going to Settings > General > Accessibility then scroll down to reduce motion and toggle reduce motion to the “on” position.
5. Turn off dynamic wallpaper
Go to Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper, then choose a wallpaper from the “Stills”.
6. Turn off auto brightness
Settings > Display and Brightness (make sure auto brightness is in the off position). This will allow you to manually keep your iPhone at a lower brightness level and will contribute to saving iPhone battery life.
7. Turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
When you are not using these features it will go along way towards saving iPhone battery life by keeping both bluetooth and wi-fi turned off. Simply swipe up from the home screen and disable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi until you need them.
8. Disable Location Services
To do this go to Settings > Privacy> Location Services and turn off apps that always use your location, but are not necessary. A lot of apps are set to “always use location” by default and it can contribute to draining your iPhone battery. The only apps I typically have on are weather (while using) and Siri (while using).
9. Auto Lock for less time
Go to Settings > General > Auto Lock, I typically keep it on one or two minutes (less is better in this case).
10. Fetch your email less often
This can really save iPhone battery life by checking less often for new emails. Change this by going to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Fetch New Data > and select every 15 minutes, every 30 minutes, hourly or manually (fetching less often will save battery).
