How to extend the battery life of your iPhone



How to extend the battery life of your iPhone

Did you know that the ideal temperature for an iPhone (or iPad) is between 16 and 22 ° C? That it is better to maintain a charged battery between 30 and 80%? Here gives you some valuable tips for getting the most out of your iPhone’s battery while maintaining its life. The first advice – quite logical, we agree – is to ensure that we do not fall into a battery. The easiest way is to always have a Lightning cable and something to charge the smartphone.

To preserve the battery life of the iPhone, it should not be exposed to extreme temperatures (less than 0 ° C and more than 35 ° C) but also, as far as possible, to keep its load is between 30 and 80%. Some experts say that keep its iPhone permanently plugged into the sector and therefore 100% will not hurt much but others explain that it ends up damaging the electrolytes of the battery … and therefore degrade. Still, you deserve a Nobel Prize if you manage to stay in this 30-80% range permanently but at least you now know that a full charge is not necessarily the panacea. A reminder: for a faster charge, switch to Airplane mode, it always helps a little even if it is not miraculous. For more details visit

A good setting of the apps for a better autonomy

See also the most demanding applications. To do this go to Settings> Battery. This is where you can switch to “energy-saving” mode at any time but also there you can even the apps that shoot the most on the battery, whether it’s the last 24 hours or the last 7 days (average smoothed). Facebook, Candy Crush, Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp … maybe some of these apps do not need to always work in the background.

In addition, it is important to always have your smartphone updated to the latest version of iOS (if, if). It’s always better for the security of your data but also for the software optimizations that Apple constantly makes. Also, let the Wi-Fi on constantly because a smartphone consumes less in this way than a 3 / 4G connection. And when you take the train or take a long drive, turn on airplane mode. This will prevent the phone from running out to continuously search for the nearest cell terminal. Finally, if you find that your aging phone tends to heat up more than it starts while charging, you may want to opt for a hull to improve heat dispersion.

All these tips will help preserve the battery of your iPhone but will not make a miracle in time. Know that it was found that after a year to a year and a half of use, the capacity of a battery was only 70% compared to its beginnings. At a certain point, you can actually consider changing the battery.

Apple’s tips for preserving battery life

  • Keep your iPhone up-to-date with the latest version of iOS, the smartphone operating system
  • Avoid extreme temperatures (especially not over 35 degrees)
  • Remove the shell during charging if the device tends to heat up
  • Store the iPhone half full if you do not plan to use it for a long time

Apple’s advice to maintain good autonomy in everyday life

  • Keep your iPhone up-to-date with the latest version of iOS, the smartphone operating system
  • Decrease the brightness of the screen a little or opt for automatic adjustment
  • Keep Wi-Fi on all the time (it consumes less than a cellular connection)
  • When the battery reaches a certain level, switch to “energy-saving” mode
  • Detect applications that are the most energy-intensive
  • Switch to Airplane mode in a low signal area or on the move (car, train…) if you can
  • Plug in and turn on your computer to charge your device through this

Applications that consume less

  • Disable geo-location in apps
  • Disable apps’ automatic update in the background
  • Stop “killer” applications, it is useless and even has a negative effect (every time you restart an app, it will have to reload everything while a “dormant” app will already be ready for use)
  • Disable email alerts (or space them, every hour for example)
  • Disable notifications of apps that annoy you (it only takes a few seconds but it’s been 6 months that you reject the idea, we too, we know that)
  • Do not show in figures the percentage of battery, it stresses you.
