Of all the items you use throughout your day, few are quite as essential as your phone. That’s why it can feel frustrating to realize your battery isn’t lasting as long as it used to. Fortunately, the experts at Experimac Overland Park, an iPhone® repair store based in Shawnee Mission, KS, offer these tips to extend your phone’s battery life.
iPhone Repair Tips to Extend Battery Life
1. Adjust Your Settings
The most effective ways to preserve battery life are to adjust your brightness and switch to Wi-Fi whenever possible. Swipe up from the bottom of your screen to lower the brightness, or turn on auto-brightness in your phone’s settings so your device automatically adjusts to different lighting conditions. Additionally, your phone uses more energy when it is connected to a cellular network. Save your battery (and your data) by logging in to a Wi-Fi network whenever possible.
2. Update Your Software
If you haven’t updated your software in a long time, your phone is going into overdrive just to run your favorite apps. Go to your phone’s settings, tap “General,” followed by “Software Update.” If an update is available, you’ll need to keep your phone connected to a power source while the software updates.
3. Replace Your Battery
You’ve optimized your settings and updated your software, but your battery is still dying quickly after you unplug it. You may need a full battery replacement, especially if your phone is still under warranty. Bring your device to an authority on iPhone repairs to ensure your device is handled safely.
It’s normal for batteries to begin slowing down after two years, but if any specific settings or apps are sapping your battery life, the iPhone repair team at Experimac Overland Park will provide expert insight.
