Although the iPhone is still the most impressive tool with hundreds of brilliant features and people can have more fun with this brilliant iPhone than any other smart phone on the market. But there is price for the fun, the battery life, you have to recharge your iPhone every couple of days or even every half day, even though the most current iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 plus land with a better battery life,they cannot compare to some of the other devices on the market, which can last in some cases for days at a time.
So here we would like to share some tips to save your battery life without forcing you to turn off services and features, which makes it a choice between all the cool things that the iPhone can do and having enough juice to do them.
1. Turn on Auto-Brightness
The iPhone has an ambient light sensor that adjusts the brightness of the screen based on the light around it (darker in dark places, brighter when there's more ambient light) to both save battery and make it easier to see. Turn Auto-Brightness on and you’ll save energy because your screen will need to use less power in dark places.Adjust that setting by tapping:The Settings app>Display & Brightness (it's called Brightness & Wallpaper in iOS 7)>Move the Auto-Brightness slider to On/green
2. Keep Wi-Fi Off
The other kind of high-speed network that the iPhone can connect to is Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi is even faster than 3G or 4G, though it’s only available where there’s a hotspot (not virtually everywhere like 3G or 4G). Keeping Wi-Fi turned on at all times in hopes that an open hotspot will appear is a sure way to drain your battery life. So, unless you’re using it right this second, keep Wi-Fi turned off by going to:
The Settings app>Wi-Fi>Slide to Off/white
You can also turn off Wi-Fi via Control Center. To access that setting, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and tap the Wi-Fi icon to gray it out.
3. Turn off Location Services
One of the coolest features of the iPhone is its built-in GPS. This allows your phone to know where you are and give you exact driving directions, give that information to apps that help you find restaurants, and more. But, like any service that sends data over a network, it needs battery power to work. If you’re not using Location Services, and don’t plan to right away, turn them off and save some power.
Turn off Location Services by tapping:
The Settings app>Privacy>Location Services>Slide to Off/white
4. Disable fitness tracking
Many users have reported considerable battery drain as a result of upgrading to iOS 8.2, the latest iterative update. This is because it uses sensors in your phone to determine your fitness and activity levels for the day.
You can disable it by going to Settings > Privacy> Motion & Fitnessand switching off the Fitness Tracking setting
5. Turn Bluetooth Off
Bluetooth wireless networking is especially useful for cell phone users with wireless headsets or earpieces. But transmitting data wirelessly takes battery and leaving Bluetooth on to accept incoming data at all times requires even more juice. Turn off Bluetooth except when you’re using it to squeeze more power from your battery.
Find it in:The Settings app>Bluetooth> Move slider to Off/white
6. Auto-Lock Sooner
You can set your iPhone to automatically go to sleep – a feature known as Auto-Lock - after a certain amount of time. The sooner it sleeps, the less power is used to run the screen or other services. Try setting Auto-Lock to 1 or 2 minutes..Change the setting in:
The Settings app>General>Auto-Lock>Tap your preference (the shorter, the better)
7. Turn off Equalizer
The Music app on the iPhone has an Equalizer feature that can adjust music to increase bass, decrease treble, etc. Because these adjustments are made on the fly, they require extra battery. Turn the equalizer off to conserve battery. This means you'll have a slightly modified listening experience - the power savings might not be worth it to true audiophiles - but for those hoarding battery power, it's a good deal.
Find it in:The Settings app>Music>EQ>Tap off
8. Don't Automatically Upload Photos to iCloud
As we've learned throughout this article, any time you're uploading data, you're running down your battery. So, you should make sure that you're always intentionally uploading, rather than automatically doing it in the background. Your Photos app can automatically upload your images to your iCloud account. This is handy if you want to share or backup right away, but it also sucks battery life. Turn off auto-uploads and only upload from your computer or when you have a full battery instead.
Find it in:The Settings app>Photos & Camera>My Photo Stream>Move slider to off/white
