10 reasons of fast discharge of the iPhone

It is time to dispel the long-established myth that the iPhone holds a charge for few days. Unfortunately, like all other smartphones, iPhone quickly discharges and doesn’t live more than one day. And it has many reasons why. We chose the main ones, which drain your battery more than others.

Location Services

maps_location_services

Settings > Privacy > Location Services.

Here you will find a number of applications that use GPS, to keep track of the location. Some applications such as Runkeeper and Find my iPhone really need it, but many others can be safely turned off.

Email sync

iphone_email_fetch

Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data > Manually

When choosing option “Automatically” the iPhone will always communicate with the server to instantly provide a new notification. If you do not need it, select the manual mode and check the data when you need it.

Screen brightness

iphone6-ios9-settings-display-brightness

Settings > Display & Brightness

Simply move the slider to select the minimum value of the brightness that is comfortable for you. This can be also done from the bottom menu. Recommended to turn off the auto-brightness.

Airplane Mode

iphone-airplane-mode

If you don’t need the Internet connection and you have only a few percent of the battery left, turn on the airplane mode. Thus, you will extend the battery life for a few hours.

Mobile Data

Between the Wi-Fi connection and mobile data, always choose the first one. Not only because of the higher speeds. Mobile data drains the battery in a matter of hours.

Automatic downloads

appstore-itunes-settings

Settings > iTunes & App Stores

Quite a useful feature, which consist in automatic loading of everything that was previously purchased from the iTunes and App Store. But if you want to save your battery, better disable this feature.

Too much garbage in the Spotlight

ios-9-spotlight-search

Settings > General > Spotlight Search

Spotlight Search is a useful feature that constantly indexing phone for changes. If you rarely use it, turn off unnecessary category search or even all of them.

Background App Refresh

background-app-refresh-settings

Settings > General > Background App Refresh

Another useful feature that allows application to receive information on the background, it means that even if the application is not running it may work on background. You can disable this feature entirely or select individual applications that you don’t need.

Enabled Airdrop

Tap-on-AirDrop-on-iPhone

Bottom menu > Airdrop > Off

Since the release of iOS 7, personally I used this feature a few times. Disable it, you will save your iPhone from the need to constantly search for i-devices nearby.

Push-Notifications

notifications-settings

Settings > Notifications

Disable push-notifications of those applications that you don’t need. This will not only save your phone from rapid discharge, but also save your nerves.

It is not recommended to use all the methods at once, because your smart gadget will turn into a useless piece of metal. But some of them can really help to save your battery and your iPhone will survive till the evening.

How to find out which apps drain the most battery of your iPhone?

battery-settings-ios9

Settings > Battery

Here you can see a list of applications used within last 24 hours, as well as for the last 5 days. In this menu, you cannot manage any settings, it is only informational. However, you will have an idea which app consumes the most battery, so you can disable background app refresh and other things described above.
