Owners of iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, regardless of the generation of their device, are always concerned about this issue. It seems that you are not actively using your iDevice, but for some reason the battery charge is consumed, and there are times when it suddenly discharges in the blink of an eye. What could be the reason for this?
We will try to answer this question and help solve the problem of the battery life of your Apple device.
Yes, many iPhone 4S owners complain about battery life, especially on iOS 5.1. However, as practice shows, almost all owners of Apple devices face similar problems - both iPhone owners and owners of iPad of any version.
Is the rechargeable battery so small that it cannot provide a sufficiently long period of operation? Not at all - it's all about the correct settings for your device.
Yes, it is the right settings that will help you extend the battery life of your iPhone or iPad. Go to the Settings section on your iDevice:
Set the screen brightness to a lower level. This is the first method that can slightly extend the battery life. Go to Settings -> Brightness, and then move the brightness slider to the left to decrease the brightness of the device screen. A lower brightness setting of the device will provide your smartphone with a longer operating time. Note that when the Auto Brightness function is enabled, the brightness of the device screen changes according to the current lighting. This option can also be enabled, since in this mode the device will automatically select the required brightness. Go to Settings> Brightness and activate Auto Brightness.
Turn on Airplane Mode
Remember that iPhone always tries to establish a connection to the cellular network, even in areas with very low cellular signals or even out of range - and the power consumption of your iPhone or iPad increases significantly. To avoid this situation, switch the unit to Airplane Mode (iPod Mode). In this case, you will not be able to send SMS or make calls, however, you will significantly increase the battery life.
Turn off Equalizer
Please note that turning on equalizer when playing music on iPhone will decrease battery life considerably. To turn off the equalizer, go to Settings -> Music -> Equalizer and then press the Off key.
Close unused applications
Multitasking is a big reason why iPhones and iPads drain battery quickly. Any running application consumes a lot of memory and energy, even while in the background. In order to save the battery from such consumption as much as possible, press the Home button 2 times and all the programs that are currently running on your iPhone or iPad will be displayed below. Press and hold your finger on the program icon until a cross appears - click on it, and you completely turn off the running program. Also try to keep the number of running applications to a minimum.
Update your software
Apple in each new version of iOS significantly improves energy saving methods - do not neglect this, and timely update the software version of your device.
Turn off Bluetooth
Always check if Bluetooth is working - it is possible that some application has quietly turned on Bluetooth, and thus the battery consumption of your device has increased significantly.
Turn off 3G internet
3G internet is a real battery killer for your Apple device. Using 2G will provide you with a slightly slower Internet download speed, but will significantly save your device's battery. However, if you do not need the Internet, then be sure to turn off 2G.
Use Wi-Fi instead of 3G
Firstly, it will help not only save battery power, but also your finances and time. Often, not all owners of Apple devices have unlimited mobile Internet connected, so using Wi-Fi can save a significant amount of money, in particular with large Internet downloads. Also, with a Wi-Fi connection, data transfer is much faster, although it consumes less energy from your device.
Turn off Wi-Fi
If you are, for example, on the street, then most likely you will not need a Wi-Fi connection in the near future. Therefore, turn off Wi-Fi, since when Wi-Fi mode is on, your iDevice will constantly search for available networks, which will not affect the duration of its operation for the better.
Turn off the geolocation service for programs that do not need this service at all. As you can see in the screenshot, many programs use data from the Geolocation service, while consuming a lot of your device's battery power.
Also pay attention to the item "System Services" (Settings -> Geolocation -> System Services). It is necessary to disable the following items: "Search in cellular networks", "Diagn. and use”,“Geolocation iAd”. If you do not travel outside your country, i.e. you are within only one time zone, you should also turn off the "Time zone" item.
Disable automatic download of programs
Automatic download of programs for downloading via Wi-Fi connection of programs and music purchased on another device. This feature is often used quite rarely, so it is best to disable it. To do this, go to Settings -> Store.
Turn on auto lock
Do not forget about automatic locking of your device - this will help prevent the device from reacting to touching its screen, and will also significantly reduce its battery consumption. Go to Settings -> General, and enable Auto-lock device as soon as possible for a shorter period of time.
Turn off vibration
Many iOS apps and games use the vibration function. However, if you refuse to use this function, then you will significantly increase the life of your Apple device. This can be done by going to Settings -> Sounds, or directly in the settings of any game.
Turn off keyboard clicks
Oddly enough, even the screen lock sounds and keyboard clicks consume battery power. To save time on your device, go to Settings -> Sounds, and turn off Lock Sound and Keyboard Clicks.
Disable email push notifications
If there is no need to check your mail every minute, then turn off automatic mail updates and switch it to manual mode. It is also possible to disable email Push notifications (automatic updating of images and documents that come with a new letter). To do this, go to Settings -> Mail, Calendars…. -> Download data and disable push notifications.
Disable push notifications of other programs
Some apps downloaded from the App Store may use the Apple Push Notification Service to notify you when new data is available. Apps that make heavy use of push notification delivery can dramatically reduce device battery life. To turn off notification delivery, go to Settings -> Notifications and turn off the Notifications option.
Don't use automatic verification for multiple accounts
To conserve battery power, you need to set up automatic verification for fewer email accounts. Disable unnecessary email accounts or delete them altogether. To disable an account, go to Settings -> E-mail, Contacts, Calendars (Mail, addresses, calendars), then select an account and click "Off." To delete an account, go to Settings -> E-mail, Contacts, Calendars (Mail, addresses, calendars), and select an account, then click "Delete".
If you are not using Ping, it is best to disable it. Go to "Settings" -> "General" -> "Restrictions", then enter the password and be sure to remember it. Find Ping and disable it.
Keeping all of these correct settings will help you to significantly extend the performance of your Apple device. However, in addition to the listed tips, follow these recommendations, which will also help you use the iDevice much longer:
- Use your iPad or iPhone regularly. In order for the lithium battery of the device to be constantly in good condition, it is necessary to maintain the periodic movement of electrons in it.
- Charge at least one full charge per month. To do this, fully charge and then completely discharge the iOS device's battery.
- Do not set temperature records with your iDevice: the permissible storage temperature for the device is -20 to +45 ° C. Please note that leaving your iPad or iPhone in the sun, even in a protective case or case, can seriously damage your device's battery. Temperatures of severe winters can also have a negative impact. Therefore, try to avoid excessive cooling or overheating of the device. Also, if you find that when charging your iPhone or iPad, your iDevice begins to heat up, then you need to get it out of the protective case.
- If you have jailbroken your device, then carefully consider installing third-party applications - not all comply with Apple standards, and the use of such programs may in some unknown way affect the duration of your iOS device.
- Immediately after buying a new iPhone or iPad, you need to do 2 full charge and discharge cycles. The first two times you need to charge at least 4 hours. When recharging most lithium-ion polymer batteries for the first time, fast charging occurs first, due to which 80% of the device's battery capacity is replenished, and only then it is charged with a weak current. In the case when your iPad or iPhone is not used during its recharging, the first stage of charging the device takes about two hours, and the next one also takes about two hours.
- Use ONLY original accessories to recharge.
- Using batteries correctly, iPhones can reach about 80% of their original capacity after 400 full charge cycles, and iPad batteries even after 1000 full charge cycles.
- If you notice that the battery of your iPad or iPhone has begun to malfunction, then you can replace it by contacting a professional.
Hopefully, we've been able to cover the issue of increasing battery life on iPhone and iPad sufficiently. If you know any other ways with which you can increase the operating time of an iOS device, then be sure to share them in the comments to this article.
Apple never mentions battery capacity in product descriptions for marketing reasons. Instead, on the company's website, you can read how long the iPhone can work in one mode or another and compare the indicators with other models.The duration of the battery life is one of the most significant technical characteristics of any smartphone, which means that when choosing a gadget, it is important not only to find out the battery capacity of the model you like, but also to compa
