Having problems with your iPhone's battery? Many users may attest that iPhone's battery life is among the major flaws of one of the world's famous phones. While users continue to expect a lot from Apple and consider the battery life one of the most important features a smartphone must possess, the company has continuously left the issue hanging.
According to a report by International Business Times, Apple has left its battery technology undeveloped amidst issues and complaints thrown at their smartphones as it has insistently focused on developing its physical design and image, maybe to compete with thinner phones arising in the market.
Although Apple has tried to boost the battery life of its newest iPhones, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which both were recently released, still, more users have complained of the phone's battery life. Recent talks reveal that the new iOS 8.0.2 mobile operating system is eating up the iPhone 6's battery life.
While Apple has not released any solutions to the problem, several blogs and news posts have provided some tips and tricks in solving iPhone's battery drain issues.
For instance, the International Business Times gave one trick -- users can save some battery by activating the grayscale mode of their iPhones. First, go to Settings, then to General, then go to Accessibility, and choose Grayscale.
Most iPhone models have the grayscale feature, so this must be easy. Activating the grayscale feature turns it into a black and white screen, lowering the display color and in turn, giving a higher chance of conserving its battery life. The report also suggested that users decrease the iPhone's brightness. These theories were also supported by BGR.com.
Another BGR.com report also provided other tips and tricks on how to save iPhone's battery. Here are just some of it:
You can kill Siri's "Raise to Speak" option by going to Settings, then to General, click Siri, then disable the Raise to Speak. Disabling the automatic music and app downloads and updates will also help, BGR.com said. You can do this by going to Settings, then to iTunes and App Store.
Other simple solutions include: turning off the phone's vibration, enabling "Reduce Motion", and disallowing frequent location learning. These can all be done by clicking Settings and choosing these categories. Turning off the 4G/LTE, WiFi, and the bluetooth can also extend the iPhone's battery life.
iDigitalTimes said that iPhone users can also turn off the Background app and content refresh and push notifications. All of which can be edited in the Settings. Setting the auto-lock to a minute and turning off extra sounds and using headphones instead of the speaker can also help save battery.
