But sometimes, things just do not happen the way you want to. Battery drainage is a common issue, and that is exactly why most of the iPhone owners upgrade their phones with latest iOS or iPhone released. But the issue does not seem to get fixed, and you may just regret buying an iPhone. Don�t worry, here is a complete guide on how to fix iPhone battery drain issue.
It is important to understand that if you have upgraded your iOS or exchanged your iPhone for the latest one, it might take one or two days for the phone settle down by indexing everything. But more often than not, your battery drainage problem won�t be solved.
1. Rebooting and Restarting
Sometimes, all you need is a reboot every day. Most of the times we forget to reboot our phone, and the background apps keep consuming the battery. You must also reset your iPhone occasionally. Press and hold the sleep button and press the home button at the same time. When the Apple logo appears, release them.
2. Standard Standby Test
Sometimes, the only reason why your iPhone battery is draining super-fast is that you are using it like a freak. It is supposed to give you 10-12 hours while working but if the work is double than what is expected, definitely your battery will take a toll. To find that out, you have to close all the apps and put your iPhone down for 30 minutes. Before you do that, take a reading of the percentage of battery charge you have left. After half an hour of standby mode, check the battery charge percentage and see if it is exactly what the battery should produce. If it is correct, it means that you are doing heavy works on your iPhone and hence, the battery is draining so fast. If not, check the next step.
3. Know what consumes much
iPhone has the inbuilt utility to let you know which app is consuming how much percentage of battery charge.
Go to Settings and tap on Battery. Wait a few moments for indexing and then tap on Show Detailed Usage. You will see the battery usage for the last 7 days. Uninstall the unnecessary apps that are consuming power. Note the ones that are useful but consuming the power quite a lot. So that next time you use them, you can double tap on the home button to bring app switcher and swipe those apps to quit them forcefully.
4. Low Power Mode
Low power mode is designed to save more battery. It terminates a few unnecessary processes and conserves a lot of battery charge. To enable it, you have to go to Settings and tap on Battery. Toggle Low Power Mode on and your battery will surely last longer than before. You can also lower the brightness manually, keep auto-lock time short, and use headphone instead of the speaker to listen to music.
5. Turn on Reduce Motion and be particular about Location Service
Animations are cool, but they consume a lot of power unnecessary. There are so many animations on iPhone especially if you have iOS 11. Go to Settings and tap on General. Then select Accessibility and tap on Reduce Motion and toggle it to enable in.
Similarly, location service is a feature that several apps use these days, and even when you do not use the app, they access location service. You can select which apps should use the feature and only when you use those apps. For that, go to Settings and tap on Privacy. Then tap on Location Services and select individual apps.
If nothing works, go for a battery case or a battery bank. If you think your battery is draining fast without any reason at all, visit Apple service store and report the issue. If you own iPhone and if you have any other tips, please share it in the comments section below.
