#1. Keep Track of the Battery Usage
Whenever I find my iPhone battery draining a bit too much, the first thing I always do is keep a tab on the battery consumption. It provides me a fair idea about how things are going on and which apps are eating up unusual battery. So, start with giving a closer look at the modus-operandi of power consumption of your device.
- Open Settings → Battery → Now check out the battery consumption on your device.
- Tap on the Last 24 Hours tab to check the battery usage of the previous 24 hours.
- Tap on Last 7 Days to check out the battery usage in the previous 7 days.
#2. Reboot Your iOS Device
Though many of you may laugh at the idea that a hard reset can fix the battery drain on iOS devices, it does work in some cases. Hence, it would be worth to try out this tiny little trick.
Simply press and hold on your home button and power ON/OFF button at once for about 10 seconds.
#3. Turn Off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth When Not Needed
I always make sure to turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when I’m not using them. It’s one of the simplest ways to keep the battery of my device in check. Hence, I would suggest you to put them off as well.
Go to Settings → Wi-Fi/Bluetooth or Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to bring up Control Center and then tap on Wi-Fi/Bluetooth button to turn it off.
#4. Take control of Background App Refresh
Background App Refresh is a highly power hungry feature. Though it helps apps to remain fresh in order to run smoothly, it kills a lot of battery. Hence, I would recommend you to turn off this feature.
Just in case, you don’t want to completely put this feature off, allow only selected apps to run in the background.
Step #1. Tap on Settings → General.
Step #2. Tap on Background App Refresh.
Step #3. Turn off the switch next to the apps which you don’t want to run in the background.
