In today’s world where people are more on the go than ever Mobile phones are more popular than ever. Not only are they capable of much more than they were even just five years ago, but their batteries last even longer.
However, like all electronics, they can age over time. Transformers can age over time, wires can age over time, and yes—your phone battery can degrade over time.
This is why it’s so important to make your phone battery last as long as possible. If you thought making your phone battery last was as simple as plugging it in as needed and unplugging it when it’s charged, think again.
There are certain tips and tricks that can significantly help you make your battery last longer with less stress on the go. To help you, here are some of the best tips for making your iPhone battery last longer.
Stop Mindlessly Scrolling
Mindlessly scrolling is something that many of us have become accustomed to. It’s something many of us do when we wake up and drink our coffee, while we’re waiting in line for the grocery store, and even when we’re lying in bed. However, each time you scroll you’re consuming your phone’s battery.
Whenever you use your phone, ask yourself whether what you’re doing is actually worth draining the power, or if what you’re doing is simply for the sake of being on your phone. Try to set designated times throughout the day when you check your phone, or try the old-fashioned method of only looking at it when you receive notifications.
Unplug When Fully Charged
A lot of us want to make sure that our phone never dies, so in an effort to avoid a drained battery, we keep our phone plugged in around the clock. Unfortunately, this can lead to frying your battery over time. Once your battery is full, unplug the phone.
This can be a little tricky if you plug your phone in at night. Luckily the manufacturers at Apple kept this in mind, which is why they created battery optimisation charging mode. Your device will charge slower over a certain period of time so that you don’t get to a full charge until right about the time you wake up.
Enable Low Power Mode
Low power mode will help temporarily reduce your power consumption until you’re able to charge. This can be extremely helpful if you’re down below 20%, and won’t be around an electric outlet for a while. However, it’s important to note that when your phone is on this setting, certain effects and notifications are disabled.
