Whether owning an iPhone 5, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, or iPhone 8, every user runs into the same issues with their smartphone: performance and battery life. Even updating an iPhone to the latest version of iOS 11 can completely drain battery life, as updates can take a few hours. To help out, we've compiled a list of various tips to help boost an iPhone's battery life.
Enable Low Power Mode
Low Power Mode is a great way to boost the battery life of your iPhone when the battery starts to drain. Once the iPhone battery level hits 20 percent and 10 percent, iPhone owners can turn on Low Power Mode. To enable Low Power Mode, simply go to Settings, Battery.
AirDrop makes it easy to share multiple files, such as contacts, maps, and photos. AirDrop can easily drain an iPhone's battery as it looks for nearby devices every time it's being used.
Lower Brightness Display
iPhone display super bright? It's possible the brightness settings could have changed in the latest update for iOS 11. Go to Settings, Display & Brightness, and then lower the brightness of the screen. Doing this should improve battery life.
Remove Unused Applications
Keeping a lot of unused apps on an iPhone could be causing battery to drain. It might be worth it to go through all the apps and see which ones aren't being used. Delete the ones that haven't been used in a while. That should help boost iPhone battery life.
Poor Cell Coverage Area? Turn On Airplane Mode
In a poor cell coverage area? If so, your iPhone's battery will be working twice as hard to find a good signal. By turning on Airplane mode, users can boost their battery life. Go to Settings, Airplane Mode, and then tap the Airplane mode icon.
Turn Off Apps Running In The Background
Background Activity shows which apps were using your iPhone's battery while using another app. By tapping on the Clock icon, users can see how much time was spent on screen and how long an app was running in the background. Apps like Apple Music, Google Maps, and Mail could be draining your iPhone's battery. Mobile games and dating apps also tend to drain battery life. To disable apps from running in the background, simply go to Settings, General, Background App Refresh, and turn off.
