How To Save Battery When Using Your iPhone 4s


The iPhone battery received the most troubleshooting requests by a wide amount during FixYa's FixMas report last year, accounting for 40% of user issues. With the newly released iOS 5.0.1 failing to fix the issue for many iPhone owners struggling with battery life, I figured it would be a good idea to break down some of the best ways to get battery life out of your phone.

The vast majority of these actions take place in the "Settings" section of the iPhone. They should be done in conjunction with one another in order to maximize battery saving effects:

  • Turn off location services
  • Turn off push notifications
  • Turn down screen brightness
  • Turn off Bluetooth and turn off auto-search for Wifi
  • Do not leave your phone charging overnight-- when your phone reaches 100% battery power, take it off the charger
  • Lock your phone regularly and enable auto lock (the shorter it takes for your screen to lock the better)
  • Fetch new data manually (emails especially)
  • Turn off Siri (4s users only)
  • Turn off time zone settings

Please keep in mind the historical issues of this phone when attempting to solve your battery issues-- while the phone itself is a work of art and functions wonderfully, the battery is a huge issue and something that will be a problem for you even after you implement these fixes into your daily routine.

In other words, these tips are merely a way to get more juice out of your phone throughout the day. They will not fix your battery issues outright.

That is something only an OS update from Apple will be able to accomplish.

Apple iPhone Battery Saving Guide The Apple iPhone doesn't have the best battery...


Apple iPhone Battery Saving Guide
The Apple iPhone doesn't have the best battery life in the world but if you follow this simple guide it should provide you with a longer battery life.



1. Turn down the brightness: You can reduce the battery consumption by turning down the brightness of the screen. Select Settings, Brightness, and then drag the slider to around the 25 percent mark, or as low as you can stand.

2. Turn Wi-Fi and Bluetooth off: From the main menu, tap Settings, Wi-Fiand select the "Off" switch. Same goes with Bluetooth; if you're notusing a Bluetooth headset, make sure the Bluetooth radio is deactivated(Settings, General, Bluetooth).

3. Check e-mail less frequently: If you are using Pop Mail then you can save battery by checking it less frequently. Select Settings, Mail, Auto-Check, and pick either the "every 30 minutes" or (better still) "every hour" options.

4. Sync less frequently: If you sync with an Exchange server either turn it to manual or set it only to check periodically

5. Make sure "Auto-Lock" is on: TheiPhone will keep its bright screen burning unless you manually pressthe lock/sleep control. If you haven't already, make sure the iPhone's"Auto-Lock" feature is on: tap Settings, General, Auto-Lock, and then pick a time interval (the shorter the better).

6. Turn off the equalizer: Apple has always suggested turning off the iPhone’s built-in equalizer to conserve battery life. Tap Settings, iPod, Equalizer, then spin the roulette wheel up to Off.

Put it on the charger and let it sit there until the battery shows up on the screen. I had the same problem before too. Its probably just dead.

I have had my iphone less than a week- i did not expect it to have problems so soon. .... i have iphone 2g my battery ran out now it wont recharge or turn back on? .... but it doesn't turn on, it...


If your iPhone's battery runs very far down, the iPhone won't turn on. That's because it's using its remaining battery life to preserve your data and settings.So, your iPhone could be refusing to turn on because its battery doesn't have enough juice. In that case, plug your iPhone into a wall charger or into your computer (plug it directly into the computer; some USB ports on keyboards don't have enough power to charge iPhones). Let it sit for 10-20 minutes. If it was low on battery and needed a charge, when it's got enough juice to power the screen, it will turn on and show you its charging status, starting with the red battery icon.During this process, you may also want to make sure there's no lint packed into your cable or the iPhone's dock connector. This isn't a hugely common problem, but a lot of pocket lint could interfere with the iPhone getting a charge.

Iphone screen get dark in the middle of the conversation


Changing the auto lock setting will improve that.
  1. Click the settings icon.
  2. Click the general option.
  3. Press the auto lock option.
  4. Change the settings to your heart's desire.
The phone will dim 10 seconds before whatever the time amount selected is. For example, if you chose 60 seconds for autolock, in 50 seconds, it will start to dim.

Remember, changing that option to "Never" will drain your battery life much faster if you forget to lock your phone!

How can I improve my iPhone's battery life?


A recent research conducted on cellphones (smartphones) revealed that most of your battery life is drained by "Internet" and "calls". The more you use your phone for any of these two, the faster your battery drains. Next on the list is "Search for network" which consumes quite a bit of your battery power.
Smaller culprits are WiFi, Bluetooth, Screen brightness, themes, Vibration, etc.
* Reduce screen brightness to minimum
* turn off WiFi/3G/4G when not required (same with Bluetooth)
* if you are out of network area, turn off the mobile network so you cell doesn't keep searching for a network.
* If possible reduce internet usage on your cell phone to improve battery life (ie. if you have a laptop handy, use it!)
* Use a darker wallpaper
* Vibration takes up more battery than ringtones
* use a simple theme
* Dont keep your cell phone charging for long periods (eg. overnight)
* If you plan to buy a new battery, buy a branded authentic one
Hope this helped, thanks for using FixYa!

Iphone 3gs wont charge, wont switch on, not showing on itunes! just dead


The only thing you can do with this issue is :

Hold the sleep /wake button and the home button at the same time for 2 full minutes

if you see a white apple appear- your good - just charge for 4 hours you should be fine

if the iphone still dose not turn on then - it need service

If you just see an apple logo or your phone does not turn on, there is a software problem and you will need to restore your iPhone. I didn't want to hear it, because now I had to redo everything; but it's the only solution.

Put your iPhone into recovery mode.

To put your iPhone in recovery mode:
Step 1: Plug in your iPhone to your computer, make sure your sound is turned on and not muted.
Step 2: Hold the top corner button for two seconds. You should hear a sound.
Step 3: Now, still holding the top power button, immediately press the home button and hold both buttons for 10 seconds. You should hear another sound from your computer.

Step 4: Release the power button but *continue holding the home button*, for another 30 seconds.
Step 5: Meanwhile, continue holding the Home button and open iTunes. Wait for it to tell you that it’s in restore mode. You should also hear a third sound from your computer during this time.

Step 6: Click on your iPhone in iTunes. It should say it's in recovery mode and need to be restored. Step 7: Click OK and restore it.

Now you will need to re-jailbreak it, and restore your backup, and also put your music back in.

Good Luck!
