Turn Siri off

Siri is always listening. That means Siri is always using your battery. You can turn the Hey Siri feature off easily enough so it's worth doing if you're trying to save some juice.

To do this, go to Settings > General > Siri > Allow "Hey Siri" and toggle it off.

Check which apps are eating your battery

There are some apps that eat more battery than you would think. It's worth checking which apps you are using that are impacting your battery life the most so you are aware.

Head to Settings > Battery > Battery Usage. You can choose the last seven days or the last 24 hours. It's worth checking both to see if you can see a pattern or figure out which apps to especially avoid.
Turn vibration off

Vibration alerts are useful, especially if your iPhone is on silent, but they require the use of the motor and that motor needs juice from the battery.

To do this, head to Settings > Sounds and toggle Vibrate on Ring and Vibrate on Silent off.

Turn off notifications

You probably don't need to be notified for absolutely everything that is going on. Yes, it's useful to get WhatsApp or Message notifications but do you really need to know when someone has commented on your new Facebook profile picture? Probably not.

Limiting the number of notifications you receive will help your battery life and maybe even your sanity. Like background app refresh, you have to go through each app individually. Head to Settings > Notifications and then start filtering through your apps.

Fetch email manually

It's useful to get emails as they are sent, but just because you get them straight away doesn't mean you have time to read them straight away.

Changing your email settings so you get them manually instead of your iPhone fetching them will help save your battery life. If you don't like the idea of entirely manual, change the fetch schedule to a longer duration such as hourly instead of every 15 minutes for example. To do this, go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data.

Turn off Bluetooth

We mentioned turning on airplane mode or mobile data off when you have weak or no signal, but it's also worth turning Bluetooth off separately.

You might not always be in a position whereby airplane mode is convenient but turning off Bluetooth on its own will still save battery. Swipe up from the top and toggle Bluetooth off from here.

Turn Low Power Mode on

If all else fails, Apple has a Low Power Mode that will reduce power consumption as much as possible. This mode will turn off background app refresh, Hey Siri, Mail fetch, automatic downloads and reduce visual effects.

To turn Low Power Mode on, head to Settings > Battery and toggle it on.

Turn off background app refresh

You don't need every single app you've downloaded on your iPhone to be refreshing in the background so turn off the ones you don't need.

Unfortunately, this means going into each app individually to check if background refresh is on, but it will be worth it if you have your iPhone to order your Uber at the end of the night. Head into Settings and scroll down to see all the apps on your device.

Turn display Auto-Lock to 30 seconds
Most of us turn to hit the power button to check for notifications or the time, but it's easy to forget to hit the power button again to turn the display back off.

Making sure Auto-Lock is set to the shortest possible time, which is 30 seconds, will ensure your display isn't using power for longer than necessary.
