How to keep your iPhone battery in top shape: Best ways to save battery

Apple’s devices, whether they’re iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple Watches, or other products, usually have a long battery life. However, Apple has been accused of purposefully slowing down iPhone models with aging batteries in the past, and it recently settled the BatteryGate case for $113 million. While Apple claims that this was done to conserve battery health over time, it has now introduced battery and performance control capabilities to users, as well as giving battery health insights and recommendations.

Update to the newest software, prevent high ambient temperatures, remove specific cases while charging, and store devices in a half-charged condition while keeping them for long periods of time are some of the general practices Apple suggests.

Apple offers a page on its website that explains how to get the most out of your iPhone’s battery life. The first step is to maintain the software up to date.

Your iPhone should be updated.

  • Go to Settings on your iPhone.
  • Select General.
  • Select Software Update from the menu.
  • You should be able to find the latest update here. If you notice an update, press it to start the process of updating your iPhone. Make sure you have enough battery power.
  • You can also connect your iPhone to your computer and update it with the current iTunes version.

You may also extend the life of your battery by changing the brightness of your screen and connecting to the internet whenever possible. You have the option of dimming or turning on auto brightness on your iPhone.

Dim the display’s brightness and enable auto brightness.

  • Open Control Center.
  • Drag the brightness slider all the way to the bottom.
  • Go to Settings to enable auto brightness.
  • Select General.
  • Select Accessibility from the menu.
  • Select Display Accommodations from the drop-down menu.
  • Turn on Auto-Brightness.

Enable Low Power Mode
When the battery on an iPhone starts to run low, users can switch to low power mode. When the battery reaches 20%, you’ll receive a notification, and Low Power Mode can be activated with a single tap. To manually activate Low Power Mode, follow these steps:

  • Go to Settings.
  • Scroll down and tap on Battery.
  • Toggle the Low Power Mode to On.

By heading to the battery settings (Settings > Battery), users may see how much power their iPhone has used. iPhone users can also disable features such as Background App Refresh and location services to save battery life. Here’s how to do it:

Prevent apps from refreshing in the background.

  • Go to the Settings menu.
  • Select General.
  • Select Background App Refresh from the drop-down menu.
  • To turn off Background App Refresh completely, select Off.

Apps’ location services should be turned off.

  • Go to the Settings menu.
  • Select Privacy.
  • Select Location Services from the menu.
  • Here you’ll find a list of apps that use location services, along with an option to turn them off.
