iPhone Battery Problems: 3 Ways to Improve Your iPhone Battery Life

As we get more connected to the internet universe with our smartphones, we sometimes find ourselves in impulsive situations where we immediately need to undo certain online actions that we regret. In the same way, our web connectivity via our mobile devices also enables us to share and communicate messages and images in real time.

This ?instant? connection is only hampered by two things. The absence of a cellular data signal from a network provider, and the dreaded ?low batt? life.

As mobile networks continue to improve their coverage, giving us connectivity to almost all places we normally travel to, the batteries of our smartphones (despite the supposed improvements) cannot seem to solve the problem of its juice running out, just when we need that extra power.

This is especially true for iPhone owners, as the numerous apps we use ?. Email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Candy Crush and Flappy Bird,…. zaps the life out of our devices very fast.

Here are 3 ways that we can make those batteries last longer in our iPhone, so we won’t fail to delete that embarrassing photo or rude comment, or share that all important selfie to our loved one.

1. Modify our settings.

Most batteries can get you through the day, and get powered up overnight while we sleep. For some people, though, their internet and game play activities eat up their batteries after four hours or so.

And why is that happening to them?

Most people keep their settings consistent, whether they are at home, inside the office or out doing errands at the mall.

Since most people use Wifi at home and in the office, the smartphone they use starts looking for wifi signals the moment they leave the wifi area. This results in the smartphone wasting a lot of battery power searching and searching for what is not there.

Solution: Turn off the Wifi settings when we leave our home or office. If we find ourself in a place with no cellular data at all, putting our iPhone in Airplane mode will also help save battery life.

Turning off certain features that we don’t use at all, will also help our batteries last longer. Some of the tools that many people do not use at all are Bluetooth, Siri, Auto Updates for apps, Frequent Locations etc….

  • For Bluetooth and Siri, just go to Settings (and General for Siri) and swipe the switch to the left to turn them off.
  • For Automatic downloads, you need to go to Settings, then iTunes & App Store, look for the Automatic Downloads, and swipe the switches to the left.
  • For Frequent Locations, which is basically used to send you targeted advertising (and who needs that), you need to go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services, and then scroll all the way down to turn off Frequent Locations.

One thing you can also modify is your brightness settings. The brighter your screen, the more power it consumes. To change this in iOS 7, just swipe up from the bottom of the display to show the Control Center. Adjust your screen brightness accordingly, depending on the ambient light in your surroundings.

2. Use a genuine Apple charger.

No, we do not sell Apple chargers or get paid to promote them.

There is a real reason why we strongly recommend that if your original iPhone charger got damaged or lost, replace it with a genuine Apple iPhone charger.

It is true that they are more expensive than ?knock-offs?, and you have to find an Apple store to get one (instead of the numerous chargers found in malls), but it does make a difference with your battery life. Not only do genuine iPhone chargers power up your iPhone faster and better, it is also safer. There have been numerous reports of injuries caused by fake iPhone chargers, and we do not want to see you get hurt.

3. Use an external power battery.

If you have tried the steps above, and it still does not solve your battery life problem, then it might be a good idea to purchase an external battery.

There are a good number of external batteries, including ones that double as an iPhone case. These ?charging cases? like the Mophie Juice Pack, a popular iPhone charging case brand, protects your iPhone and gives it that extra juice as well.

Other external batteries can re-charge your iPhone for several times. The Anker 2nd Gen Astro3 can charge the iPhone fully for 6 times, before it runs out and needs re-charging.

We hope that these 3 ways help you extend the battery life of your iPhone, and makes your iPhone go on and on and on and on and on.
