How To Save Battery Life In Your iPhone
Without a good battery, your cell phone is useless and needing to charge it more than once in 24 hours indicates your usage may be wrong.
Any cell phone battery has a about 500+ cycles in its life before you need to replace it. Each time you plug it in to recharge it, one cycle is subtracted from the number of cycles left. Most cell phones need to be charged once per day depending on your usage and the apps that run in the background all the time whether you know or not. But, there are several things you can do to minimize the drain on your cell phone battery.
Saving Battery Life
- Try to keep your battery life between 20-80%
- Do not use your phone while charging
- Do not leave the phone being charged overnight as it will actually degrade the battery life and do not recharge above 80%
- Use the phone at room temps
- Turn off unnecessary services and use battery savers
- Reduce the phone brightness
- Disable your GPS and mobile data which consume larger amounts
- When you know you will not use the phone, switch to Airplane Mode.
Ironically, charging your phone to 100% is not beneficial, but 80% is. The phone battery usage is optimum at 50%. Charge your phone when it drops to below 20% and stop (if you can) charging at 80-90%.
The bottom line is that the less you need to recharge your phone, the better it is for you and the longer the battery life will be as most battery life ends after two years (assuming you recharge once a day).
