It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t want a better or longer battery for their iPhone or iPad. One of the big reasons is due to the increasing amount of assignments that we give to our cell phones, so the manufacturing companies even try to monitor and improve the performance of the Smartphones in order to consume less battery, but not even they are able to supply all this demand.
Generally, most iPhones are known for their poor battery life but don’t despair! There are easy ways to save some battery juice on the iPhone. With these tips, your iPhone or iPad battery will last much longer.
Here are tips to save iPhone battery.
1. Whenever possible, choose Wi-Fi
The advantage of the 4G mobile network is its speed linked to mobility – you will have internet as long as you have a package available. But the price you pay is a huge consumption of battery because you are frequently sending and receiving satellite signals, even many apps take advantage of this to work in the background that increase the cell phone’s consumption (but we will talk about this later).
So if you think that you are not able to save battery on your iPhone, start to notice which internet connection you are giving priority to use.
In last case…
If you notice that your battery is on its last breaths, activate Airplane Mode to cut off any signal from the cell phone (including calls, 4G, SMS etc.) and thus save a good charge. Even in this mode, it is possible to continue using Wi-Fi, but you will have to select the network manually.
2. Decrease Screen brightness
Responsible for the majority of battery consumption, the screen has several gadgets and settings to make the use of the cell phone more interesting, but at the time of tightening it is perhaps the fastest and easiest way to adjust.
To access, just slide your finger from bottom to top in the menu or on the lock screen, and then the option that regulates the brightness of the screen will be with a sun icon. Go up or down to increase or decrease the intensity and leave it at a level that is comfortable for your eyes, but that you can also see at the moment.
Beyond the economy
Oh, and this tip is really good to use in addition to moments of low battery. Always try to be aware of the brightness of your screen by the very health of your eyes. Not too dark, not too light!
3. Low Energy Mode to Rescue
Perhaps the most effective method for saving the last battery percentages, the Low Energy mode as its name suggests is perfect for when you are about to say goodbye to your cell phone and no nearby plug. By cutting functions such as animations, screen brightness, background operation and Siri, the iPhone will have its battery extended for a long time. But remember: keeping this function on at all times will cause many interesting activities on your cell phone to also be disabled, so only in times of urgency, okay?
To access this mode:
- Open the “Settings;
- Scroll down to the “Battery” tab;
- Activate Low Energy mode.
Take the opportunity to check the health of the Battery
Also in the “Battery” menu of the previous tip, you can see the health diagnosis of your battery below . Here you have the option of the last 24 hours, or a complete analysis of the last 10 days. The big catch is to be able to access information like screen time on or off and use of separate battery for each app.
If, for example, your Instagram is the app that consumes the most battery, it’s great to know that, because in times of low battery you will already know which app to decrease the use or even avoid until it is charged again.

4. Adjust the use of Constant Location (GPS)
Here we start the part where we will give you tips on functions that can easily continue the way you left it. This tip is great not only for the sake of saving battery on the iPhone and iPad, but also to understand how much freedom installed applications have to access your information, such as geolocation.
To check how it looks on your iPhone, do the following:
- Open the “Settings” menu;
- Scroll down to the “Privacy” tab;
- Click on the “Location Services” option;
Now just check how the use of each app is configured. In general, the recommendation is to leave the option “Only During Use” for the sake of your battery, but there are some applications that need constant updating, such as banks and e-mail, so it is up to your usage criteria.
5. Check for Background Updates
Finally, doing this step will certainly also improve your battery life because by configuring how the iPhone works when you are not using it will modify the operation of many applications – including some that you don’t even need to update so constantly. To do this:
- Enter the “Settings” menu;
- Go to the “General” section and open it;
- Select the “Background Update” tab.
Here you can configure in 2 steps: In the first you will click on the option “Update in the second plane” and you can select if you want the iPhone to update when it is only on wifi, on wifi and also on 4G or disable all updates in 2nd plan – which we do not recommend, as it will also deactivate for fundamental apps like email or Whatsapp where you need constant notifications.

And in the second step, you can select which apps you want or don’t want to keep connected 100% of the time and send you notifications from the list just below the previous option. Some apps don’t really need to have the background update active, so they certainly aren’t worth this unnecessary battery consumption.
