Replacing your iPhone battery is one of the more easier things to do. Your battery may be switching off at around 30% or when using things like youtube etc. If its doing this then it will need replacing as it will only get worse and could end up damaging your handset.

Check on youtube or find a reputable repair service locally (if you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself) to replace your battery for you as you could damage your phone further if you are not familiar with replacing the components inside an iPhone 4s.

I hope this helps

For a 4S, it really won't be worth the price of replacing the battery. But if you are set on keeping the same phone instead of buying a new one, there are a couple things to keep in mind to keep your phone running well.

1. Turn your phone all the way off and all the way back on at least once every 2 days. This refreshes everything and its amazing how many problems it will fix before they even start.

2. Don't be afraid of letting your battery die every once in awhile. Its actually good for it. Charge your phone all the way, and then let it run all the way down without charging it until AFTER the battery dies.

3. Don't charge your phone until you have to. Charging when you still have 70% will just put unnecessary wear on your battery. A good rule of thumb is to wait until it is down to 20%, or even 10% if you dare.

And it all else fails, spend $15-25 on a lipstick-sized portable charger and carry it with you for those times when you need a quick boost.

Hope that helps!

Check with your local iPhone repair shop. I am in doubt you'd replace it on your own.

SOURCE: Iphone 4s ios 5.0. How do i keep backgrounded apps from closing after 10 minutes?

This is a feature built in the operating system to help preserve battery life and to free up memory of the device. I don't believe there is anything that you can do manually to prevent the apps from closing.

Hope that helps!

SOURCE: My Iphone 4s died from a low battery and now it

Check your charger in a different iPhone, or the sync cable also. Check to see if your dock connector isn't tarnished, if it is clean it with a CLEAN DRY used toothbrush. Has your phone been wet? These are all the typical culprits when a phone will not charge. I hope it isn't the wet problem! Good luck!

How to extend battery time for i phone?


Ensure any unneeded apps are stopped and not running in the background. Some apps such as facebook / twitter / etc may need to be completely uninstalled or logged out to keep them from running.
Turn down the screen brightness, Generally turning the screens brightness down till it can still be easily seen but not overly bright can increase cell phone battery by up to 20%
Shut off wifi / bluetooth / gps when not required. Disable Wifi / bluetooth, and GPS will also increase your phones battery time.

Ensure a full charge, most devices (iphones included) usually require a minimum of 8 solid hours to charge, even when they say full, they are not actually "FULL". Make sure your device gets at least 8 hours of charge time before use, and don't allow the battery to drain all the way before the next charge.

It isn't often that Apple gives specific directions about how to fix your problem! Restoring the iPhone 4S will erase everything on it, so make sure everything on the iPhone 4S is stored elsewhere prior to restoring. To restore, connect your iPhone 4S to a computer with iTunes installed. Click "Restore" on the iPhone 4S summary page (click on your iPhone icon on the left menu to find this page). Follow the directions to restore. If your iPhone 4S displays the text "Please wait. Very Low Battery," leave it plugged in. This charges the iPhone 4S enough to be able to restore. If the iPhone 4S hangs on this screen for long periods of time, you may need a new battery.

Force restore mode

If your iPhone 4S is hanging with an Apple logo, or exhibiting some other software problem that prevents iTunes from recognizing it, you can force it into recovery/restore mode and then use iTunes to restore the software.
If the device is powered off, plug one end of your USB cable into the iPhone 4S and leave the other end disconnected. Press down on the Home button, and keep holding it down while you plug the USB cable into your computer. After 5-10 seconds, you should see a "Please Connect to iTunes" image on the iPhone 4S, and iTunes should prompt you to restore the software; follow the prompts and the instructions given above.
If the device is powered on, hold down both the power and home buttons until the device reboots and displays the "Connect to iTunes" image (generally, 5-15 seconds).
God bless you
