We are not going to deny that one of the biggest concerns we have in our day to day is that the iPhone does not run out of battery. It is true that with the most recent models the autonomy has increased considerably, but in the older ones we are seeing how the duration is scarce. Therefore, here we bring you a series of tricks with which to save battery life on your iPhone.
Tricks to save battery on the iPhone
If you spend a lot of time away from home, you may not always have access to a socket to connect your iPhone to charge. You may even have access to it, but it is very tedious for you to have to load it. There are some ways to extend the autonomy of the iPhone so that this problem is not such or at least occurs as late as possible.
- Activate low power mode and this may seem very obvious, but having this mode active on the iPhone can save battery power considerably. What this option does is limit the arrival of email notifications and deactivate the “Hey Siri” function. You can activate it from the Control Center or in Settings> Battery> Low consumption mode.
- Lower the screen brightness, since the screen is one of the things that consumes the most. Disabling the automatic brightness and lowering it manually can be very useful. You can do it from the Control Center or in Settings> Display and brightness.
- Use dark mode if you have an iPhone with an OLED screen (iPhone X, XS, XS Max, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max). The technology of these panels causes the black color to be reproduced with dull pixels, so this will make the screen consume less.
- Turn off bluetooth If you do not have any other device linked to the iPhone, since in the background the phone will be trying to search for nearby bluetooth devices and this generates consumption. You can do it from the Control Center or from Settings> Bluetooth.
- Completely disable WiFi when you are not connected to one of these networks. To do this, it is not enough to do it from the Control Center, but you will have to go directly to Settings> WiFi. However, we take the opportunity to recommend that you try use WiFi networks when possiblesince mobile data generates higher battery consumption.
- Lock the device manuallyBecause letting the screen turn off with the automatic lock makes the screen stay on for longer than we need to.
- Disable localization of some apps, since many times it is unnecessary for some of them to be able to access your location. An iPhone continuously broadcasting data on its location generates a lot of consumption. To disable location in applications, just go to Settings> Privacy> Location and disable location in those applications that you think is not recommended that they are always tracking your location.
- Turn off some notifications that are not useful to you. Perhaps if you are interested in receiving information from messaging apps or social networks, but not from others in which you are given less relevant information. If you deactivate notifications in some apps, you will save battery considerably. To do this, go to Settings> Notifications.
- Turn off automatic downloads so that app updates are not consuming battery in the background. To deactivate them you have to go to Settings> iTunes and App Store.
- Disable the “raise iPhone to turn on screen” function from Settings> Display and brightness, as this will prevent the screen from turning on at times when you did not want to see anything on the iPhone.
- Get the most out of your Apple Watch if you have it, since you can check certain notifications or functions from this device instead of using the iPhone.
- Use airplane mode as an emergencyas this can be very useful when you have low battery levels but don’t want to have to turn off the phone. In a matter of seconds you will be able to activate the device again. This mode can be activated from the Control Center and from Settings> Airplane mode.
- Find the apps that consume the most and see if it is worth having it installed. Sometimes you will find the odd surprise in apps that you don’t really use as much for the consumption they have. You can see this in Settings> Battery.
- Always keep your iPhone up to dateDespite the fact that sometimes there are versions in which consumption becomes higher, the truth is that Apple tries to optimize the resources of the iPhone with each new version of the software. You can check if you have a new update in Settings> General> Software update.
Other tips What we can give you is that you make a iPhone battery calibration every three months approximately and also follow our tips to extend the battery life of an iPhone, more related in this case to the deterioration of the battery in general lines than in the day-to-day consumption.
In short, we can say that with these tricks you will notice a considerable difference in consumption. Obviously there is nothing miraculous, but the truth is that it shows. We also do not recommend carrying out all the tips at the same time, since that would also reduce the experience of using the terminal, but applying a few or varying between them may be ideal.
