5 must know tips to increase the iPhone and iPad battery life

5 must-know tips to increase the iPhone and iPad battery life 
Battery life issue has existed for long on iPhone or iPad. There is more than one reason to blame if your device battery goes berserk. An ill-fated software update, an annoying bug, power-sucking features or killer apps could turn out to be the main villain.

If you are also facing the problem with your iPhone or iPad battery, we have brought 5 great tips for you to make maximum out of your device battery.

Shut Down Location Services

Some apps keep track of your location, even when you’re not using them, to improve their service. Apps like Google Maps need to know where you are, of course, to help direct you when you’re traveling somewhere. Switching off Location Services, however, is a quick win when you need to save some iPhone juice, and can be managed by heading to Settings > Privacy > Location Services.

Get on Board with Airplane Mode

Whilst it’s great for keeping cabin crew happy and holiday phone bills down, Airplane Mode is also a great way to improve your iPhone battery life when you’re still here in the UK.

When you find yourself stuck in a poor mobile coverage area, either with little or no signal, your iPhone burns through battery searching for a better connection. If you know coverage isn’t likely to improve any time soon, turn Airplane Mode on and you’ll boost battery life considerably.

Tone Down Your Visual Effects

Have you noticed how smooth your iPhone transitions from one app to another, and from apps to the home screen? You might also have caught the authentic effect that makes your app icons look as though they’re floating on top of your wallpaper, as you tilt the phone gently side to side.

Your iPhone’s silky visual effects are a deliberate design to please your eyes. But they’re not such good news for your battery life, sapping it slightly throughout the day. The dynamic effects can be turned off, or reduced rather, to help conserve battery when you need to. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > turn on Reduce Motion.

Update to the Latest Software

Downloading the latest version of iOS doesn’t just give you access to hot new features and an refreshed interface. They often include advanced energy-saving technologies says Apple, so they’re worth the update.

Go to Settings > General > Software Update, and download any available new software.

Use Low Power Mode

We don't want to turn this into "iPhone battery for dummies", but you have heard of 'Low Power Mode', right? Having pinched the idea from Android, Apple added it last year in iOS 9, and it essentially cuts back on some of the power-draining fluff. With an iPhone it gets rid of some of the flashier screen transitions, makes the screen a bit less bright, slows the little thing's brain down and switches off background email-gathering.

So, yes, it makes your iPhone a bit less glitzy and a bit dumber, which is why Apple only makes a point of offering it when you are at 20 per cent charge (and nowhere near a plug). But you can actually switch it on whenever you like. How? Predictably enough, it's under Settings > Battery.
