How to extend iPhone Battery life

Tips to extend your iPhone battery life

Extending iPhone battery life is very simple and needs following few steps which is really very easy for any iPhone user.

Here I will tell you how to perform the steps so that you can do it yourself at home.

Modifying iPhone battery/ power section is technically called “Calibrating battery”. Now why you should calibrate your iPhone Battery?

Calibrating your iPhone battery (also referred to as resetting the battery) is a surprisingly important part of iPhone maintenance. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize its benefits, and even fewer take the time to perform the necessary steps.

Without a correctly calibrated battery, you’re likely to experience inaccurate and erratic battery percentage readings, quicker battery drain, and a shorter total lifespan for your battery. If you iPhone shuts down unexpectedly when your battery life percentage hits single digits, poor calibration is almost certainly to blame.

Many factors can cause a battery to become incorrectly calibrated. Software updates, background apps refreshing, new features, and even plain old day-to-day use can all cause discrepancies.

And even if you don’t notice an incorrect calibration, performing the steps will ensure all the ions in the battery are flowing, thus improving the battery’s peak performance.

Preparing to Calibrate an iPhone Battery

Disable Location Service

To disable location services on your iPhone, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and tap on Privacy.
  3. Select Location Services.
  4. Slide the toggle next to Location Services into the Off position.

By the way, you can use location services to track a lost iPhone, so don’t forget to re-enable this after you’re done calibrating.

Disable Background Refresh

Follow the instructions below to turn off the background app refresh:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Select Background App Refresh.
  4. Tap on Background App Refresh a second time.
  5. Select Off.

Decrease Your Screen Brightness

Here’s how to lower the screen brightness on an iPhone:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and select Display and Brightness.
  3. Move the slider all the way to the left.

Speaking of brightness, don’t forget that iOS now offers a dark mode that makes it easier to use your phone at night.

Next thing to do is:

Turn Off Automatic Updates

Finally, to turn off automatic updates, follow these three steps:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and tap on iTunes and App Store.
  3. Slide the toggle next to Updates into the Off position.

It’s also worth ensuring you’ve not accidentally enabled low-power mode. You can check by heading to Settings > Battery.

Thant’s all folks. So far I’ve tried to make you inform how to get the maximum out of your iPhone battery.

iPhone not charging. What to do!

If your iPhone won’t charge, it may be time for a new battery (and, since the iPhone’s battery can’t be replaced by the average user, you’ll be paying for that service along with the battery itself). But not necessarily. There are a number of things that could be interfering with your iPhone’s ability to charge its battery. Try these things before you head out to replace your iPhone battery. 01 of 08

Restart iPhone

You’d be surprised how often restarting your iPhone can solve problems you’ve had with your device. It won’t solve the more serious problems, but if your phone won’t charge, give it a restart and try plugging it in again. Get instructions on how to do this in the linked article. 02 of 08

Replace USB Cable

On the hardware malfunction front, it’s also possible that there’s a problem with the USB cable you’re using to connect the iPhone to your computer or power adapter. The only way to test this is to get access to another iPhone cable and try using that one instead. If you find that it is your USB cable that’s broken, you can buy a new one.

One good option is the iXCC Element Series USB cord, which at three-feet in length, comes with an authorization chip issued by Apple and is compatible with the iPhone 5 and higher. As an added bonus it also comes with an 18-month warranty. 03 of 08

Replace Wall Charger

If you’re charging your iPhone using a wall charger power adapter (rather than by plugging it into your computer), it could be the adapter that’s preventing your iPhone from charging. Just like with the USB cable, the only way to check this is by getting another power adapter and trying to charge your phone with that (alternatively, you could also try charging via a computer instead). 04 of 08

Check USB Port

Once you know you’re using the right kind of USB port, if you still can’t get a charge, it may be the USB port itself that’s broken. To test this, try plugging your iPhone into another USB port on your computer (or on another computer if you have one nearby). If that other computer recognizes and charges your iPhone, the USB ports on your computer may be broken.

You can also try plugging in another USB device that you know for sure works. That can hep you rule out that the problem is with your USB ports. 05 of 08

Don’t Charge Using the Keyboard

To make sure iPhone charges properly, you need to make sure you’re charging it in the right place. Because the iPhone has high power demands, it needs to be charged using high-speed USB ports. The USB ports that are included on some keyboards don’t provide enough power to recharge the iPhone. So, if your iPhone doesn’t seem to be taking the charge, make sure it’s plugged directly into one of your computer’s USB ports, not the keyboard. 06 of 08

Use iPhone Recovery Mode

Sometimes problems occurring with your iPhone require more extensive steps to solve them. One of those measures is Recovery Mode. This is like a restart but can help solve more complex problems. It’s important to know that in Recovery Mode, you delete the data on your phone. When you use Recovery Mode, your phone will expect to have its data restored from a backup or to be returned to factory settings. 07 of 08

Check For Lint

This isn’t a super common problem, but it’s possible that lint from your pockets or purse could be jammed into either the iPhone’s Lightning connector or your USB cable. If there’s enough lint there, it could be preventing the hardware from connecting properly and thus stopping electricity from reaching the iPhone battery. Check your cable and dock connector for gunk. If you find it, a shot of compressed air is the ideal way to clear it but blowing will also work. 08 of 08
