your iPhone or iPod Touch's battery level always depleting quickly? Do you not
have enough juice to get you through the day? Here are some quick tips to
conserve your battery life and help you get through the day while you are
Facebooking, sending texts, and calling.
lets make sure you can monitor your batter level. This is how you will turn on
the percentage of battery display.
to your home-screen.
up the Settings App.
General then Usage
it says battery percentage, make sure the switch is in the on position.
that you can monitor your battery life, here are a few things you should
continually do to save battery.
keep multiple apps running if you don't have to. iPhones and iPod Touches have
multitasking to run multiple apps at once, but this can use a lot of battery.
To delete tasks, double tap the home button and then hold down an icon at the
bottom of the screen. Once the apps begin to wiggle, tap the X by the app to
stop the task (note: this won't delete the app, it will only stop it from
battery saving setting is not fetching email quite as often, I mean, do you
really need to check your email every 15 minutes or hour? Fetching data uses a
lot of battery, to disable or not as frequently fetch for data, go to the
Settings app again. Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars then Fetch New Data and set
it to Manually so to check email, go to the email app and click the refresh
iPhone has an adjustable brightness, and a higher brightness wastes more battery,
to change the brightness: go to your Settings app. Go to Brightness and turn
your brightness down. You don't necessarily need to turn it all the way
down(especially when you are in bright lighting conditions, kind of ironic that
you need higher brightnesses in brighter environments), but if you are in a
pitch black room, then there is no reason to have the brightness above the
good habit is turning off bluetooth and wifi when you are not using them, to do
this, go to your Settings app again. Go to Wi-Fi and turn of wifi. To turn of
bluetooth, go to General then Bluetooth and turn it off.
you don't necessarily use an app a lot or at all, turn off Push Notifications.
To do this scroll all the way down on your Settings app, and choose that
particular app. This will only be useful on an app that gets information from
the internet. In the particular app that you chose, usually there will be a
Push Notifications option, and you can disable this, this will help your
battery because your iPhone constantly tries to search for data with these on.
Also, when installing apps, you can disable this then.
good way to save battery (iPhone only) is to switch from the 3g(fast
internet)radio to Edge(slower internet) radio. On the iPhone, you have twice as
much battery with Edge radio. To change between the two, go to your Settings
app once again. Go to General then Network and where it says Enable 3g switch
it to off. You can/should do this when you aren't heavily surfing the internet,
checking Facebook, or downloading apps. Don't use this with apps that require
heavy internet usage.
final tip to conserve battery is changing the amount of time until the
iPhone/iPod Touch goes into sleep mode. If you forget to put it in sleep mode,
it will stay on and waste battery in your pocket, etc. To change the amount of
time to save battery, go to your Settings app again. Go to General then
Auto-Lock and change it to something short such as 1 or 2 minutes.
tips will significantly prolong your battery, use them to your advantage.
