If you want to save battery life on your iPhone, there are a few tips you can follow to ensure that your iPhone battery lasts longer. One of the biggest culprits when it comes to battery drain is background app refresh, so it’s important to turn off any apps that don’t need to run constantly. Another way to save battery on your iPhone is to adjust the brightness of your screen or use auto-brightness. Keeping a check on your battery health is also important as a worn-out battery can easily drain your battery. You can check your battery percentage, charge, or usage through the battery icon at the top right corner of your screen or under settings > battery > battery health. Following these tips can help you make the most out of the battery life on your iPhone and avoid unnecessary battery drain. Additionally, updating to the latest version of iOS can also help optimize battery usage.
When your iPhone falls below 20 percent charge, it’ll offer to turn on Low Power Mode. But if you’re trying to save as much power as possible, consider turning it on even earlier. You can find it in the same Battery menu we mentioned above.
Low Power Mode reduces your screen brightness, makes the screen turn off quicker, and refreshes background apps less often. For example, you might stop receiving emails while Low Power Mode is on. And if you’re using 5G internet, it’ll probably kick you back down to 4G.
You can tell when your iPhone is in Low Power Mode by looking at the battery bar. If it’s yellow, Low Power Mode is on.
Screen brightness is one of the biggest battery killers out there. Turning down the brightness is a quick way to save juice.
Swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen to open your Control Center, and drag your finger down the brightness meter to lower it.
You can also turn on Auto-Brightness, which will raise and lower the brightness for you depending on how much light there is around. You’ll find this option by opening Settings, tapping Accessibility, and then tapping Display & Text Size.
In the past, it was common wisdom that Wi-Fi would kill your battery faster. But these days, Wi-Fi actually uses less power than a mobile data connection.
To save battery while browsing the internet, connect to a Wi-Fi signal. And try your best to stay on the same Wi-Fi signal for as long as you can — if your iPhone is constantly searching for a new connection, it’ll take a toll on your battery.
We all know how fun games like Genshin Impact are. But if you’re low on battery, you’ll have to resist the urge to play.
Apps that demand more processing power from your phone — like HD video editors, or games with great graphics — will kill the battery faster. When trying to save battery, stick to apps that don’t have to load a lot of data, or are primarily text-based.
This includes your iPhone’s own camera. While it’s not as intense as some apps, constantly taking pictures or videos will drag your battery down. FaceTime is even worse since it needs to load both your video feed and someone else’s.
If you’re not sure which apps are “high-power,” check out the Battery menu we mentioned earlier.
Some apps keep close track of where you are and where you’re going, even when you’re not using them. They do this through a process called Location Services, and although it’s meant to be unobtrusive, it can take up precious amounts of battery power.
To edit Location Services, open Settings and tap Privacy, then hit Location Services. From here you can turn every app’s location tracking off all at one time, or edit each app one by one. The more you limit, the less power those apps will use.
Notifications take up processing power, make apps run in the background more often, and repeatedly light up your screen. Cutting down on how many you receive will save more battery life than you might realize.
Open the Settings app and tap Notifications to manage how notifications appear on your phone. You’ll also get a list of every app that uses notifications, and you can tap any of them to change how their messages work.
At the very least, turn off Banners and Sounds for most of them. These are the notification types that take the most power.
