As we are all used to, whenever a major update of the iOS is launched, dozens of users complain about the increase in battery consumption of their devices.
Such an increase can be caused by several factors, such as an error in the configuration that came with the backup, use of more news, the system itself consuming more energy, among others.
So check out this article for ten tips that will help you save battery and your iPhone won’t let you down too quickly!
1st – Disable ‘Raise to Awaken’
One of the new features of iOS 10 is the Raise to Awaken (“Raise to Wake”).
The function present only on the iPhone 6S, SE and 7, basically, consists of making the screen light up automatically when lifting the device without the need to press any button.
It is a nice feature, but it can cause extra battery consumption if the iPhone lights up repeatedly while you walk with it in your hand for example.
So, if you do not consider this function necessary for its use, disable it in Settings » Screen and Brightness » Raise to Awaken.
2nd – Keep your apps up to date
Sometimes, just one application not yet adapted to the iOS 10 can consume battery unnecessarily.
And also, is that saying: software good is software updated!
If you don’t want to worry about updating your applications, let the iOS take care of it yourself, enable automatic updates at: Settings » iTunes Store and App Store » Updates (leave the ‘Use Cellular Data’ option disabled to avoid causing unwanted expenses to your data franchise).
3rd – Widgets: use only what is necessary
The widgets present in the Notification Center is a very good and useful thing, but they always expend energy every time you access them.
Even if your intention is to see only one, they all end up being activated the moment you pull the Central.
So, to save a little more on your iPhone battery, disable all widgets that are not fundamental in your daily use.
Just go down to the Notification Center, drag on the right side, then at the bottom of the screen, tap on ‘Edit’ and delete the widgets that you don’t want to use anymore.
4th – Disable background updates
Some applications are able to receive data updates even when they are not being used.
And this, obviously, consumes battery.
Completely deactivate the function or manage, leaving only the applications you consider necessary.
To do this, go to Settings » General » Background Update.
5th – Manage Location Services
Some applications constantly use the geolocation of the iPhone, even after being used.
This being one of the factors that consume the most battery, make the applications only use GPS when they are in use.
It is also possible to make certain apps never use geolocation.
To manage this go to Settings » Privacy » Location Services.
6th – Reduce the screen brightness
If the brightness of your device’s screen is too high, the power consumption will also be high.
Then, reduce the brightness of the screen so that it is comfortable to use, avoiding battery waste.
Use the Control Center or go to Settings » Screen and Brightness.
7th – Decrease the Auto Lock time
Reducing the time frame for automatic screen locking also saves some percent of the battery.
Put it in the shortest time possible and that does not hinder your use of iDevice in Settings » Screen and Brightness » Automatic blocking.
8th – Use Low Energy Mode
When you are not going to use the iPhone intensively or his GPS, leave the Low Energy Mode on, this will reduce energy consumption, making the battery last for a few more hours.
Activate on Settings » Drums.
9th – Put the iPhone face down
One of the many cool features on the iPhone is that when the device is on a table or mobile with the screen facing down, iOS does not light up the screen when new notifications or warnings arrive.
This also helps to reduce battery drain when the device is not being used.
10th – Restore the iPhone
After many updates and times of use, there may be some failures, corrupted internal files, bugs, among other small errors that cause conflicts in the system, which can slow down the device and even use more battery.
It is recommended to restore, leaving your device “as new” and configuring everything again.
In this case, install a backup it is not a good option, as mistakes come with the rest.
(However, iCloud backup is more ”clean«That from iTunes, I particularly believe that it doesn’t come with the bugs, since I never noticed problems with this method.)
