Do you love your iPhone? Certainly you do, and so you might be interested in knowing how to take good care of your iPhone so that it could live longer. Since it’s your all in one device, so you just stick to it, the decreased battery life is very obvious. This article will guide you how you can enhance the battery life of your iPhone. Here it goes:
Use Solar Chargers for your iPhone
When you use solar chargers, you will benefit from the convenience of charging from any location, so that if your battery is low, you do not need to wait to find a plug for your device. Another advantage of this is that you reduce your electricity usage and in turn conserves the environment.
Turn Off Wireless Applications
Your iPhone comes with wireless applications such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, which consume the battery. If you keep these applications off whenever they are not in use, you can prolong the life of your cell by several hours. Some will recommend that you turn off your 3G connection as well, but this will depend on how frequently you use it. 3G does indeed take up some of the battery energy, and you can opt to turn it off if possible.
Charge Your Phone When It Is Completely Out
It is advisable to wait until your iPhone’s battery has run out before you charge it because if you plug it in when it is half full or more, the cell’s life will shorten. Only charge your phone when the battery is down so that it can last longer, which is why solar powered chargers are advisable in this case. You will need to have a charger handy when your phone’s battery is running low.
Shorter Phone Calls
One more tip is to shorten the phone calls you make on your iPhone. The longer you speak, the more of the battery you consume. This will take some discipline and getting used to, but when you do shorten the calls, your battery will serve you for longer. You could start by only making calls when you need to.
Turn off Auto-Brightness
It’s basically to change iPhone’s screen brightness on the basis of surrounding light and so consumes battery. Also lowering the brightness can save lot of battery. Any brightness level between 25% and 30% is ideal for all times, i.e. day and night. Not a bad idea to keep a constant brightness level, as it’ll be good for iPhone battery as well as your eyes.
- Turn off 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, location services, equalizer etc when they’re not required. You must know that all these eat up lot of battery, so turning them off when not required saves lot of battery and hence increases the battery life too.
- Turn of sound effects. It really saves lot of your battery. Many times you can have fun without sound effects too!
- Don’t forget to have a monthly battery calibration. As strictly advised by Apple is to 100% charge the iPhone’s battery when it has completely drained. It means, get the battery completely finished, then charge it fully. An easy option!
- iPhone case is though a good protective measure, but charging your iPhone within case can harm and may reduce the battery life of your iPhone. This is mainly because iPhone generates heat during charging and when it’s covered with the case, that heat doesn’t get released and so it may damage battery cells or iPhone circuit.
The above list of battery saving tips may not be complete, and you can always add up your points to it, but it covers almost all areas where you can protect your iPhone battery. Use your iPhone with proper care, and it’ll live longer and perform best, exactly how and till when you want it!
