There is nothing worse than looking down at your phone, midday, and seeing that you’re already low on battery. But it’s only lunch time? And my battery is almost dead? Most iPhone owners have been here before, and after Apple came out and said they were aware of the issue, they are now replacing iPhone batteries for just $29. But, that may not be a route you’re willing to take. If you want to know how to preserve your iPhone battery to the fullest, here are some tips on how to do just that.
1. Switch to low power mode: When your phone lets you know it’s on low battery, make sure to go into settings and turn on low power mode to help conserve what’s left.
2. Turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when you’re not using them.
3. Lower screen brightness to 50%.
4. Turn off “fetching” and automatic “pushing” of emails.
5. Turn off location services (unless you’re using Maps).
6. Avoid extreme heat and/or cold.
If these things don’t work, remember you can head into Apple to get your battery replaced if it’s an iPhone 6 or newer! All other older iPhone owners, it looks like you may be stuck with that awful battery.
