Tips for Saving Battery Life on iPhone

We’ve all been in situations where there are no power outlets nearby and our iPhone battery life is less than 20%. To avoid such a hassle in the future, here are some iPhone battery-saving tips.

Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your iPhone Battery life

Siri’s Raise to Speak

The Raise to Speak feature allows you to raise your iPhone to speak into it and converse with Siri. Because this uses battery power, you can turn it off by navigating to Settings > General > Siri > Raise to Speak and switching the feature off.

AirDrop

You may use Airdrop to send files to other iOS devices. This functionality does not have to be turned on all of the time. You may disable AirDrop by navigating to the Control Center and selecting the option to Disable AirDrop. This will conserve your battery life.

Spotlight

This internal search function is useful, but it can drain your battery quickly while indexing your iPhone’s contents. Take a look at any items you don’t use and remove them from Spotlight’s search by going to Settings > Spotlight Search.

Reduce the brightness of the screen

Screen brightness is a power drainer, regardless of which iOS device you’ve used. Consider turning down the brightness of your iPhone’s screen if you need to wear sunglasses. Disable Auto-Brightness in Settings > Wallpapers and Brightness. You can then manually adjust the brightness of your screen.

WiFi Search

Turning off the WiFi Search function saves battery life if you don’t need to be constantly looking for a WiFi connection. Toggle the WiFi button off in the Control Center.

Tips for Saving Battery Life on iPhone

App Updates in the Background

We agree that not having to verify whether apps on your iPhone need to be updated is fantastic, thanks to Background App Refresh, which enables for automated app updates. However, your battery life may suffer as a result of this. If you’d rather not have this functionality, go to Settings > General > Background App Refresh and turn it off, or choose and select the apps you don’t want to be updated automatically.

Locations Service

Perhaps you’ve discovered that having location settings enabled for all of your apps isn’t necessary. If that’s the case, click to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and toggle off any apps that shouldn’t be connected to your phone’s GPS.

Parallax

Do you enjoy animations such as moving backgrounds and the like? If not, Apple’s Parrallax function can be turned off to save battery life. Reduce Motion to On may be found in Settings > General > Accessibility**.

Email Notifications

Disable the Push option on your emails and make “fetch” happen! Push email downloads emails as soon as they arrive, which means your iPhone is continuously looking for new email and draining your battery. You can plan or schedule when to check for new emails if you aren’t in a rush to get them as soon as they arrive. Fetch New Data can be found under Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar. Disable the option to Push. Then, every 15 minutes, establish the Fetch Schedule.

Apps Push Notifications

Do you really require a push notification for each of your apps? Turn off some of your notifications to give your battery a break. Scroll down to the Include section of Settings > Notification Center and switch off some of those annoying notifications.

Follow these iPhone power-saving methods, and you’ll never be caught with a dead battery when you need it most!

iOS 14.5 Reportedly Arrives Next Week: Reasons You Should Wait to Update

iOS 14.5 Reportedly Arrives Next Week: Reasons You Should Wait to Update

Apple has finally released iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5, after a long beta period. According to The New York Times, the patches will be available on Monday, and although we don’t have a precise time, we do know that the OS will include a number of new features, including new Siri voices and a fancy new Face ID feature that allows you to use your iPhone while wearing a face mask.

Although it may be tempting to upgrade your iPhone or iPad to the new Apple apps, being an early adopter of something, even official OS updates, will result in more problems and headaches than it’s worth. It could be smarter to wait a few days before upgrading to iOS 14.5 rather than jumping on the bandwagon right away.

The two key reasons why you should hold off on pressing the update button on your iPhone or iPad are outlined below. If you don’t want to wait, make sure you have a current backup of your Apple computer until installing iOS 14.5 or iPadOS 14.5 when it becomes available.

Not all developer will be ready

Apps that aren’t optimized for the upgrade are the most common problem with any new software update. Apple makes improvements to the iPhone or iPad’s underlying code that developers must adapt to, and most of the time, if the developer spends some extra time making sure all of his or her changes function, there aren’t any issues.

However, this is just a general concept. There are occasions when OS updates completely destroy an app, and you could be stuck waiting unless the developer has an iOS 14.5 optimized apps ready to go.

You can reduce the chances of problems by giving developers a few days to push out their respective updates.

There might be a disastrous bug

It doesn’t happen much, however, there have been a few iOS patches that have effectively destroyed iPhones and iPads for those who installed them as soon as they were available.In 2016, Apple’s iPad Pro was bricked for some users after an update. The same year, another update rendered some repaired iPhones useless. It’s not easy to go back to iOS 14.5 after you’ve updated.

After the update is available, wait a few days, if not a week, before installing it. That way, any first-or second-day problems would have had time to surface, causing Apple to either uninstall the update and replace it with a patched version or release a second update with bug fixes.
