Based on tested operations using iPhone, here are few ways you can keep your iPhone or smartphone running with less power consumption for a prolonged battery discharge:

RUN A TEST FOR THE MOST POWER-CONSUMING APPS

Knowing which apps are taking most of your battery power is a starting point for the saving of your battery life. To run such test on the iPhone, go to the battery tab under settings. The percentage of power each app uses is displayed and can help you assess which are the major consumers. Having found out the power draining apps, it is time to turn them OFF. Close those apps as long as the durability of your battery discharge is your priority. You occasionally turn them ON whenever you need them, but they should not be allowed to run steadily. It is on record that power-draining apps are the internet-based ones.

SCREEN BRIGHTNESS ADJUSTMENT

Sometimes we do need our phone screen to be brighter so we can be able to view its content. When using the phone outdoors the sunlight and other factors could make it impossible to use the phone with a dimmed screen brightness. Therefore, the ideal pattern is to dim the screen brightness to 0% when using the phone indoors [a place with low brightness like inside a house, etc.] and increase the brightness when using the phone outdoors [a place with high brightness like outside buildings, streets, etc.]. However, always remember to press the power button once you finish operating the phone at every instance to make the screen to lock. Once locked, the screen display is turned OFF thereby saving the phone battery power.

ALWAYS USE THE LOW POWER MODE

iPhone and other smartphones have a low-power switch mode which can be activated once the need to save power arises. Such mode can help turn OFF most of the synchronized apps running underground and help close any app that is still open unknowingly, the operation of the power-saving mode can save up to 40% of the battery power when activated on time. Some phone comes with automatic power-saving mode switch making it possible to shift to the mode once the battery power has dropped to a certain percent. To switch to the mode, go to the battery tap in settings and select ‘save power’ to limit the power consumption.

WiFi/HOTSPOT SHOULD BE OFF

Except you are making use of the WiFi for browsing, there is no need leaving the WiFi ON since it will have significant power consumption on the phone battery. Besides that, the phone hotspot and other wireless connections supply data to other devices including computers. The add-ons in phones drain battery power very fast even when used for a short time. The fact is that you need to ensure they are always turned OFF once you finish using them. Some phone users have the habit of forgetting to turn OFF the hotspot after using it, thereby causing their phone to go OFF within a short time due to power draining.

TURN OFF YOUR LOCATION TRACKER

Your GPS services make the apps using it to run underground steadily taking a considerable battery power. Since the aim is to prolong your battery life, it will be needful to turn them OFF. To do that, go to your settings, scroll until you find the privacy tab. Tap it, then tap the location services. From there, you can customize which apps use location-based tracking the more you limit or set to ‘never entirely’ the less power those apps will consume.
