Keep your iPhone at a moderate temperature
One way to help extend the health of your iPhone battery is to keep it at a moderate temperature. Avoid exposing your iPhone to extreme cold or heat, which can damage the battery. When the temperature gets too hot or too cold, your iPhone will automatically adjust its performance to preserve battery power.
Avoid extreme temperatures
Your iPhone is designed to perform well in a wide range of temperatures, including under intense sunlight. But as with any electronic product, it’s important to avoid exposing your device to extremes. That means you should avoid storing or using your iPhone in temperatures below freezing or above 95° F (35° C). And when using GPS, consider placing your iPhone in a bag or console to help insulate it from direct sunlight. Also, make sure that the vent for the built-in fan on your MacBook Pro isn’t blocked.
Use battery-saving mode sparingly
While Apple notes that the iPhone 6s and later have more efficient batteries that deliver longer life, it’s still a good idea to use battery-saving mode sparingly. Battery-saving mode reduces certain visual effects, mail fetch, background app refresh, and automatic downloads. It also dims the screen and uses less power overall. You can enable battery-saving mode in Settings -> Battery.
Keep your iPhone screen brightness at a minimum
Here are some tips to help you extend the health of your iPhone battery:
1. Keep your iPhone screen brightness at a minimum. This will help reduce power consumption and extend the life of your battery.
2. Avoid using your iPhone in direct sunlight. The heat from the sun can damage the internal components of your device, causing your battery to degrade faster.
3. Avoid extreme temperatures. Both cold and hot temperatures can damage your battery and shorten its lifespan.
4. Turn off unnecessary features when not in use. Features like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS can all drain your battery quickly. Turning them off when you’re not using them can help conserve power.
5. Use power-saving mode when needed. This mode can help reduce power consumption and extend the life of your battery.
Use Wi-Fi instead of cellular data
One way to help extend your iPhone’s battery health is to use Wi-Fi instead of cellular data whenever possible. Cellular data can be a big drain on your battery, so by connecting to Wi-Fi networks when they’re available, you can help save some battery life.
Limit push notifications
One of the easiest ways to improve your iPhone battery health is to limit the number of push notifications you receive. Push notifications are a great way to stay up-to-date on what’s happening with your favorite apps, but they can also be a major drain on your battery. You can limit the number of push notifications you receive by going to Settings > Notifications and unchecking the apps that you don’t need to be alerted for every time something happens.
Background app refresh
One way to help improve your iPhone battery health is by managing your Background App Refresh settings. This feature allows apps to refresh their content in the background when you’re not using them, so that they’re up-to-date when you open them again. You can manage Background App Refresh for individual apps, or turn it off entirely.
To turn off Background App Refresh:
1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
2. Tap General.
3. Tap Background App Refresh.
4. Turn the Background App Refresh switch to the Off position for all apps, or use the slider to individually disable Background App Refresh for specific apps.
Iphone batteries are designed to retain up to 80% of their original capacity at 500 complete charge cycles. A charge cycle happens when you use all of the battery’s power, but that doesn’t necessarily mean a single charge.
If you only use 75% of your battery’s power one day, then recharge it fully overnight, you’ll end up with a 25% charge the next day. If you go all the way down to 0%, you get a full charge cycle. It could take several days or even weeks to reach a full charge cycle if you only use a small percentage of your battery each day.
One setting that has a significant impact on your iPhone’s battery life is Location Services. This feature allows apps and websites (including Apple features like Find My iPhone) to use information from cellular, GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi networks to determine your approximate location.
You can conserve battery power by turning Location Services off entirely, or by choosing which apps can use your location information and for how long. Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services to make these changes.
Don’t use your iPhone while it’s charging
When you use your iPhone while it’s plugged in, you might see a message that says “Charging slowly.” This happens when using certain accessories or charging methods. To extend your iPhone’s battery health, follow these tips.
– Don’t use your iPhone while it’s charging.
– Avoid extreme temperatures.
– Use only an Apple-certified charger, and make sure the cable has the made for iPhone logo on it.
Check your battery health regularly
It’s important to regularly check your iPhone battery health, as this can help you determine when it’s time for a replacement. There are a few ways to do this:
1. Check the Battery Health section in Settings.
2. Use a third-party app like Coconut Battery.
3. Check the condition of your battery physically.
If you find that your battery health is poor, it’s important to get a replacement as soon as possible.
