While the hardware and software incorporated in the mobile devices keep evolving in the realm of cut-throat competition and extreme innovation, most forget to keep an eye on the energy source driving the device.
Thus, off late, much attention has also been driven towards the direction of saturating the battery capacity according to the requirements of both the software and the hardware used in the smartphone.
Also keeping in mind the trending slim profile of the smartphone, the makers are, in fact, in a dilemma as to how to accommodate a heavy battery with optimum caliber into one. And while this remains as a matter of innovation, players such as LG have been doing great in this case, as it has been coming with a stepped battery, which is quite efficient and smaller. Also the same battery is now rumored to power Apple's iWatch.
There are so far, only few handsets with massive battery life but again, these phones are quite bulky compared to normal high-end smartphones these days. Thus keeping the wait alive for the heavy weight battery featuring smartphone with slim and neat structure, an alternative means to make your device more battery efficient is surely by preventing use of unnecessary features.
Keeping all those factors in mind, GizBot has come up with a number of tips and tricks that will help you increase your iPhone's battery life. Take a look:
Avoid Hot Environment
First off, it is important to keep your iPhone out of the sun or a hot environment (including the glove compartment of your car). Heat can significantly degrade your battery's performance.
Turn Off Location Services
iPhones and iPads use the in-built GPS for many functions, including Maps. You may be surprised about how many apps also use the GPS, but it eats up battery life. You can also turn off GPS settings on Android phones which will improve your battery life.
Background App Refresh
Background App refresh allows apps to re-instate their content in the background while you perform different tasks. It also eats away your battery life.
Automatic app updates
In earlier iOS versions you had to manually update Apps, but with iOS 7 they automatically update when new versions are released. It can drain out battery life, thus, manually updating apps would be a better option.
On an Android, iPhone or iPad device, notifications use up more battery life. For both, you will have to go into each app and disable the notifications individually.
Turn off vibration
Turning off the vibrating alerts on your iPhone, iPad or Android can help prolong your battery life. In IOS 7 you can find the option to turn off vibrating alerts in the 'Sounds menu'.
If you are not using Bluetooth, AirDrop, WiFi, 3G or 4G connectivity, you might as well want to disable these options as all these are also held equally responsible for battery drainage.
