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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
