In order the save battery life on iPhone or iPad you have to configure them properly. The goal is to maintain autonomy as long as possible until it can recharge. Not all customers are equal, nor are they always the same needs. Nor is it losing power when you are indoors when you are traveling abroad. Either way, you can take steps to help reduce energy consumption. To optimize each recharge, simply disable certain functions and services of the device when not needed, or priority. The following recommendations for increasing autonomy apply to tablets and smartphones with iOS 5.0 or later.
Reduce the brightness
Feeding the touchscreen is one of the most energy consuming operation. So it is good idea to make sure the auto brightness function is activated. That means the brightness automatically adjusts to ambient light conditions of the room. Thus, no user’s eyes, or the battery suffer. It is also possible to manually set the brightness to minimum.
Lock the device
Lock the iPhone or the iPad when not in use is an easy remedy to increase autonomy. Whether pressing the lock button or by configuring inactivity after a specific interval. In the latter case, the interval of inactivity must be very short, for example, half or one minute.
Disable wireless communication capabilities
Wireless communication technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or wireless network required to perform continuous checks of the signal, and that takes energy. Simply enter into the setup menu and turn off Bluetooth when not needed. The same is true of Wi-Fi, although Apple warns that the accuracy of location services and maps may be affected. Also, the user can turn off the mobile data connection, in the case of the iPhone that means still be able to make and receive calls, but can not access internet via mobile network.
Upgrade to the latest version of the operating system
Optimizing battery performance is one of the tasks that engineers must face in the apple brand when developing updates iOS. No wonder Apple is forced from time to time to release new versions to fix battery issues, following complaints from users. So the company should ensure that the device has installed the latest version of iOS.
Away from Heat
Anyway, Apple warns consumers not to leave the device in direct sunlight or in a closed car in summer. Excessive heat not only affects the battery life, but also life. The company also specifies that both devices battery is designed to work in environments with temperatures between 0 and 35 degrees Celsius, although the ideal is 22 degrees Celsius.
A full recharge per month
Another tip that helps keep the battery in good condition is to perform at least one complete cycle of recharge per month. That means charge until the indicator points to the one hundred percent and then use the iPad or iPhone until the battery completely runs out.
