10 Tips to improve battery life in your IOS device

By on 22:34

Mobile devices have evolved considerably over the years. Just look a little back in time to see that we have gone to make calls and send text messages to take pictures and video and edit them from the phone or via video call chat or play games with great graphics.

However, this development has not been given the same level in the batteries, so they tend to last less and less because we use the phone more and more. Energy consumption in IOS also meets this dilemma: the devices are more powerful and do more things but the length remains the same or decreases. The solution? Apply any of the tricks that we propose to make the battery last longer

Check usage statistics

In iOS, you'll find information on the autonomy of your device. Specifically, from "Settings> General> Use", you'll see how much time has passed since the last battery, showing the days and hours in use and at rest. This information will help you know if the last time you loaded the phone the battery lasted longer than the previous times or vice versa. The only drawback is that for this information to be useful, you have to charge the battery to the maximum so that the Restart counte

Uninstall applications you do not need

It seems obvious, but many times we forget that from time to time it is appropriate to do some cleaning of our iOS device . It is so easy to download and install an application or game that is easy to forget and stay there, consuming memory space . This would not be a problem if it were not for some of these applications make use of features of iOS that ultimately consume the battery

Disable connections that do not use (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G ...)

Keep connections activated Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 3G consumes power continuously. This is normal, but if you do need is an absurd waste of energy. Personally, I try to keep off the Bluetooth because I never use it and enable or disable Wi-Fi when I know I will not have access to an open connection or that has a password.

On the other hand, when I know that I will not have coverage or do not need to be reachable or receive important messages, I use the "airplane mode" that turns off all connections wireless, and GPS. This saves battery at specific times that you do not need Internet access or calls.

Disables the location of the applications

In relation to the previous point, the location function of certain applications it is useful for personalized content based on where you are, but do not always need or use, so it is desirable to disable this option. In iOS you can do it individually for each application from "Settings> Privacy> Location>" and unchecking each application.

Adjust the screen brightness

By default, iOS devices have enabled "Automatic brightness". Some say it consumes more battery rather than the reverse. Try different combinations and decide for yourself. In any case, the less bright, less battery consumption .

Turns off the display when not in need

While you're listening to music or when not using the phone, turn off the display to save battery time, as with the screen on consumption is higher. Something as simple as pressing the power button a few seconds will give you more battery.

Disable background refresh

From "Settings> General> Update in the background" can enable or disable this option, which means that applications access their servers to update the content they display. Although very useful for current information involves a battery consumption as in other cases we have seen.

Disable push notifications

The warnings or notifications push also involve battery consumption to find information online. For this reason, disable notifications for applications that do not need them, will help to conserve a little battery. You can configure notifications from "Settings> Notification Center".

Disable automatic updates

This option is one of the many new features it brings iOS 7. Although very useful, implies that iOS consult Apple's servers for updates to applications you have installed, so consume battery. If you want to save energy is better that you disable this option and look for updates at a specific time of the day or week. To turn off automatic updates go to "Settings> iTunes Store and App Store> Updates" and disable the "Updates".
