10 Tips to Prolong Your iPhone Battery Life


1. Check Your Battery’s Health

If your battery health is bad, Apple will tell you about it when you go to Settings -> Battery. But this only happens when the battery health goes below 80%.


If you have a Mac, you can check your iPhone’s battery health at any time using the CoconutBattery app. If it’s below 80%, you may want to go to the local Apple store or a service station and get the battery replaced.


2. Reduce Brightness

Open Control Center and reduce the brightness. If possible, dim the screen completely. Try not to use full brightness at all times. Over time, this will reduce the stress on your battery.


3. Use Auto Brightness

If you’ve disabled Auto Brightness, enable it again from Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Display Accommodations


4. Reduce Auto-Lock Time

Go to Settings -> Display & Brightness -> Auto-Lock and choose the 30-seconds option. 


5. Use Wi-Fi When Possible

Wi-Fi uses way less energy than cellular radio. When possible, try to use Wi-Fi instead of Cellular data. From Control Center, tap on the Wi-Fi toggle to turn on the feature.


6. Use Low Power Mode

When you use Low Power Mode, you’re not pushing the battery at all times. This reduces the chances of degrading your battery quickly.


7. Don’t Use iPhone in Extreme Temperatures

iOS devices function best between 32° to 95° F (0° to 35° C). Extreme cold and heat might affect the battery negatively and it might degrade faster.


8. Tips for Storing iPhone for Long Term

 Don’t keep the iPhone idle for a long time with a full charge or a zero charge.


9. Charging Tips

Charge without a case, use a standard charger...

Make sure you’re not running betas on your phone and avoid installing the first release of a new iOS version. Usually, the bugs get squashed in a couple of weeks after release.
