Everyone wishes their iPhone battery would last longer. While we all patiently wait for a breakthrough in battery technology, here we are going to discuss a few tips & techniques you can do to save power and long last your iPhone’s battery life.

Activate Low Power Mode


You can go into Settings > Battery and select Low Power Mode. You'll hardly notice a difference, but the feature turns off battery drainers like mail fetch, automatic downloads, and certain visual effects. It also lowers your phone's brightness.

Turn off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth & AirDrop

When Wi-Fi is on, your phone uses up precious battery life by searching for a connection. The quickest solution is to shut off Wi-Fi at Settings > Wi-Fi; toggle the switch at the top of the screen to off.

Similarly, Bluetooth and AirDrop are constantly looking to connect, but there's no reason for them to be active at all times.

Turn off Bluetooth by going to Settings > Bluetooth and sliding the toggle to off. Turn off AirDrop by navigating to Settings > General > AirDrop > Receiving Off.

Check out which apps are using the most battery

You can check which apps drain the most power by going to the Battery tab under Settings. Go into Settings > Battery for a list of apps that are draining your phone the most. The percent of power each app uses is displayed and closing out of apps that are draining the most battery rather than leaving them open, or use them less often. 

Adjust screen brightness

Smartphone displays are bigger and brighter these days, but those crisp screens keeping you awake at night are murder on your battery life. The good news is you can easily dim that brightness.

First, activate auto-brightness. Navigate to Settings > Accessibility > Display & Text Size > Auto-Brightness and toggle it to on. Your phone will then adjust its brightness based on your current lighting situation.
