We use our phones for everything these days, from snapping photos to browsing the web, watching videos, and even making the occasional phone call. All that activity can definitely drain your battery quickly especially if you are using an iPhone, but luckily there are easy and smart ways to make your iPhone battery last long:
- Lock screen notifications help you see all of your new alerts quickly, but they can also take a toll on your battery life. If you’re getting notifications on your lock screen that you don’t need to necessarily see right away, head over to Settings > Notifications. From there, you can tap each app and decide whether or not you want notifications from that app on your lock screen.
- Latest iPhones (iPhone 5s and above) quietly monitor your movement in the background, and integrate that data with Apple’s health app. While this can be useful, it’s also not necessary. Head over to Settings > Privacy > Motion & Fitness and tap the Fitness Tracking switch.
- The iPhone can automatically update apps for you in the background while you’re connected to Wi-Fi, but this can drain your battery. To turn this feature off, go to Settings > iTunes & App Store and then scroll down to Automatic Downloads and switch off the Updates slider.
- Turn the screen battery down. Simply swipe up from the bottom of your screen and adjust the brightness slider accordingly.
