Nowadays, we rely on our smartphones just like we rely on oxygen and electronic products. Naturally, this makes us have higher demand to the batter life of smartphones. And hope they can last longer between charges. However, they are just beautiful wishes. Most of us find our mobile phone and tablet battery draining fast, especially, iPhone and iPad. Luckily, here are some tips by which you can learn “How to Improve Battery Life in iOS 10.2.1”.
Update to the latest software:
If you are using iOS 5 or later, see if you need an update. Go to Settings > General > Software Update. If an update is available, you can plug your device into a power source and update without wire or plug it into your computer and update with the latest version of iOS.
Enable low power mode:
Low Power Mode is an easy way to extend the battery life of your iPhone when it starts to get low. Your iPhone lets you know when your battery level goes down to 20 per cent, and again at 10 per cent, and lets you turn on Low Power Mode with one tap. Or you can enable it by going to Settings > Battery. Low Power Mode reduces display brightness, optimizes device performance and minimizes system animations.
Turn Off Parallax:
The technology that makes the home screen’s icons appear to be floating above the wallpaper is called parallax. This motion-sensitive feature is super cool, but it also takes a toll on your phone’s battery. To disable Parallax, open the Settings > General > Accessibility, and turn Reduce Motion to on.
Turn Off Background App Refresh:
It’s convenient, but iOS Background App Refresh feature, which automatically updates or refreshes mobile app content over WiFi or cellular data, could be draining battery without your knowledge. To turn it off, open Settings > General > Background App Refresh, then slide to turn it off.
Stop Location Services:
When you’re using lots of apps that include automatic GPS location and tagging (like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter), your phone is working overtime to locate you. But if you don’t need to put location in your posts and updates, then keep the GPS off. You can do this by Setting > Privacy > Location services.
Stop Push Notifications:
Some apps will send you notifications that you don’t really need. Go to Settings > Notification and slide to Allow Notification. Tap on any apps that you don’t need notifications from and choose Allow Notifications.
Close Apps Often:
When you’re done using apps, quit them by double-tapping the home button and swiping up on the application’s window.
Use Content Blockers in Safari:
One of the best features introduced in iOS is the ability to block advertising and tracking cookies in Safari. How could that affect battery life, you may be asking? Well, the technologies used by advertising networks to serve up, display, and track ads can actually use a lot of battery life. The battery life you save may not be huge. But combine a boost in battery life with a browser that runs faster and uses less data, and it’s worth checking out.
