If you have an iPhone and you have a hard time getting to the end of the day, you always have the option of connecting an external battery, or using the charger, and giving a shot of energy, but if you are not near a plug or have an external battery at hand, the thing is it gets complicated.
That is why we are going to give you three tricks with which to be able to stretch those last percentages to be able to get home still with battery.
First of all, we anticipate that although miracles cannot be performed, we will be able to make the Apple phone not spend so much.
low power mode
Apple has developed a low power mode that you can activate manually. It is one of the most recommended actionscreated by Apple for and to achieve the savings we are looking for.
with this mode there will be functionalities that do not work correctly until you disable it. We leave you here a list of the functions that it reduces or deactivates:
- 5G (except for streaming video) on iPhone 12 and later models
- Automatic lock (30 seconds by default)
- Brightness of the screen
- Display refresh rate (limited to 60Hz) on iPhone models with a ProMotion display
- some visual effects
- iCloud Photos (temporarily paused)
- automatic downloads
- Mail auto check
- background update
As we can see, there are many functions that will be paused or deactivated and will make your mobile last longer.
This implies that push messaging apps, mail, etc., will not be updated automatically until you enter to see the application.
Stop closing apps constantly
Apple recommends not closing apps unless the app in question has frozen. Part of the problem is that people think that the apps that appear in the carousel are open and working.
However, Apple comments on its website: “when the list of used applications appears, the applications are not open, they are in standby mode to help you navigate and multitask“.
That is, if you close an application and open it later, it will consume more energy than if it recovers from that standby state.
In comparative mode it would be like booting a computer from sleep mode or booting it from shutdown, it would take more time and computing time is battery consumption.
Check battery health
From iPhone 6 onwards and you have a version of iOS 11.3 or later, Apple has placed an option in the configuration and Battery section to check its health.
Within that section we can see the first figure, the percentage of maximum capacity. 100% would be a factory-like capacity state and the degradation with the time of use will make it go down.
According to Apple the battery should maintain 80% for 500 charge cycles. In case your iPhone has less than that percentage during the warranty period, it makes it possible for you to request a completely free replacement.
If you are out of warranty, the battery change depends on the iPhone model. Up to the iPhone 8 family, the price is 55 euros and thereafter, the price is 75 euros.
