Are you having issues with your iPhone’s battery life? Maybe the iOS update did your phone in. Either way, there are a few things you can do to help get a little more out of your battery. Many of these are tips we’ve shared in the past, but we figured it would be nice to put them together in a single post.

Let’s take a look at some of those.

1) Try to turn off the parallax effect

You can do this under Settings > General > Accessibility. Go to Reduce Motion, and turn it On. That’s it. You will remove that parallax effect.


2) Use Control Center, and turn things off

Turn on Control Center and disable a few things: Bluetooth, AirDrop, Wifi. Of course, those are all things you may need. Only turn them off if you don’t need them. For instance, why have Bluetooth on if you don’t have a Bluetooth device? Why use AirDrop if you won’t be using it? And so on. If you’re on the road, no use to leave the wifi on, because your iPhone is perpetually looking for a wifi connection with this option on. If you’re not anywhere near one, no need to have it on. Right?


3) Disable Auto-brightness

This is also a battery saver. Go over to Settings > Wallpapers & Brightness. There, you will see a toggle that allows you to turn off the auto-brightness setting.


4) Turn off Background app refresh

Go to Settings > General > Background App Refresh. Turn it off. This helps preserve battery life, because apps won’t be updating when you aren’t using the.



5) Turn off push email

Rather than having your email pushed to your phone. It’s better to set it to fetch manually. This means it won’t update until you check your email.Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data. From there you can scroll down and set Fetch to whatever you need. We like to set it to Manually.
