iPhone is gaining immense strength in the Smartphone market over a couple of years and can be seen in more hands, unlike before when it was the choice of the selected few; and that’s specially the case in India. Unlike U.S., iPhone freaks are rarely seen in this part of the globe. But that was the thing of the past with its popularity and customers increasing with each passing day. So, talkin about iPhone, we decided to share some simple and effective ways to save and boost its battery life in the long run.
Here are Six useful tips, some you must be already aware of and couple of new ones which are sure to boost your iPhone’s battery life :
(1). Use only those Cydia Apps that you think are really useful for you.
There is no doubt that you can make your iPhone do crazy things, courtesy, Cydia. But, doing all that will effect your battery life and there’s also a possibility of your iPhone getting crashed.
(2). Terminate background apps manually.Apple says background apps aren’t technically “running” unless they’re front and center, meaning they shouldn’t be drawing any power. Though its said that manually shutting down background apps gives you extended bat-life, it can be pretty annoying at times, so don’t overdo it.
(3). Turn off location services.A lot of apps tap the iPhone’s GPS when they don’t really need to. Go to Settings>Location Services, and disable the feature for the apps that don’t really need the location check.
(4). Turn off notifications.Simultaneously, in the Settings >Notifications – turn off all unnecessary sounds, alerts, home screen badges. The apps that actually use these features are the same ones that monitor your phone – thus cutting your battery life.
(5). Turn off Ping. Ping is a huge drain on the battery, and not many people use it. So if you aren’t using it, why let it waste your battery?
(6). Keep it cool. The hotter your iPhone gets, the faster your battery will die. And sliding your phone into your pocket does just that with your body heat. Seems silly, but its not. Clip your phone to your belt, in a nice vented pouch. It’ll work wonders for your iPhone.
Just buying and flaunting an iPhone isn’t enough. Also take good care of this precious commodity, as everyone doesn’t owns one.
