There are many ways to conserve iPhone battery life, as an iPhone user, we find the following 5 methods most effective extending my battery usage by over 50 % :) Try them yourself!

Firstly, Identify Battery Killers

This is the first step for you to identify which app is using up the most amount of juice. 

1. Settings 2. Battery

Turn Off Background App Refresh

This feature allows your apps to check for new information in the background. For instance, if you check your Facebook notification at 8.30am daily, the iOS learns that and it will automatically update your app before 8.30am

To turn it on: 1. Setting 2. Display & Brightness 3. Move the Auto-Brightness slider to On

Turn off LTE or Cellular Data

Local telcos offer 4G connections, which drains more energy as compared to the 3G and 2G. To Change to 3G, it might reduce your browsing speed but in exchange you have longer battery life.

To change: 1. Settings 2. Mobile Data 3. Mobile Data Option 4. Enable 4G 5. Choose Off

Off Air Drop and Bluetooth when not in use

1.Swipe up from bottom of the screen to open Control Center 2. tap Airdrop and Bluetooth to off them both

Replace Your Battery

Typically, a new lithium - ion battery is made to last 700-800 charges. Over time, the capacity of the battery will reduce. This is because, each time when the battery is charged, the electric current pushes the lithium ions from the battery's cathode to anode. When the battery discharges, the ion flows in the opposite direction. Overtime, the cathode material degrades and results in some lithium ions unable to reach the anode, as a result the battery loses its capacity.

A new battery will seem attractive for phone that is 2-3 years old.

  1. Charging capacity will be back to 100%
  2. Discharge slower hence one complete charge will last longer
  3. Stable battery discharging speed, there won't be sudden drops in battery percentage
