I found that the more I download and use cool apps on my iPhone, the less time I get to spend actually using my iPhone. This is because all those apps drain your battery.
I know I’m not alone wih this problem. I’ve seen all sorts of adapters that charge the iPhone battery. But the problem continues with the newly charged battery losing juice quickly. Instead of charging the battery faster, I try to save the battery life I have left because the last thing I want on a trip is a dead iPhone battery.
Here are a few simple steps I’ve found extend the life of my battery.
Close Down Apps
Most apps will continue to run in the background if you do not close them down. Running multiple apps will slowdown perfomance and drain your battery.
Double tap the iPhone center button and a list of open apps will appear.
Next, hold down the screen over any of the open apps. A minus sign will appear on all the apps.
Finally, de-select any apps you no longer need open by pressing the minus sign. You’ll be left with apps that you can continue to have running in the backgound.
Manage Location Services
Some apps use your location and this uses up the battery quickly. Try to minimize the apps that use location services. You can always turn them on when you need them.
Managing apps and settings can increase the life of your iPhone battery. Do you have any more battery saving tips?
