Like every year at this time, Apple has published the beta version of its new operating system – iOS 12, and you can download and install it on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch whenever it’s compatible. But upgrading to a new version of iOS often brings many consequences. Such as iPhone battery drain very fast, in this article we tell you about 9 tips to improve battery life of iPhone/iPad in iOS 12.
The iPhone includes a list that allows you to see which applications consume the most battery power. Go to Settings and choose the Battery option to see which application has consumed more battery in the last 24 hours or 2 days.
Select the clock icon on the right to see how long the app has been running in the background or on the main screen. With this information you can limit the use of this app that consumes too much battery.
The brightness of the screen is one of the things that consumes the most battery. However, you can adjust the brightness from the Control Center.
You can also select the Auto-Brightness option, which adjusts according to the light. I recommend using this option if you usually use your iPhone at night or indoor.
If you are in well-lit places, the automatic function keeps the brightness of your screen at the maximum level, which consumes more battery power. Go to Settings, select Display & Brightness and adjust the brightness slider.
This Battery Saving Mode allows you to reduce or stop the mail update option, background applications and automatic downloads. It also reduces visual effects and blocks your phone every 30 seconds. When the battery reaches 20 percent, iOS suggests you turn on Lower Power Mode, but you can also turn it on from Settings >> Battery.
If you do not need your phone’s emails to be updated constantly. Check the settings of your email so you can be sure that this option is off. You can configure these options by changing your preferences and selecting Manual. This means that the Mail app will not search for new emails, but you will have to open it and look for them manually.
The Bluetooth button in the Control Center of iOS 12 does not turn off its corresponding radios. It only disconnects them, but they stay on, and consume energy. Apple sees this as an advantage because it automatically re-connects when you move to another place, but it is also a more energy-consuming feature.
Go to the Settings and turn off Bluetooth when you know you will not use it for a long period of time.
Siri can be invoked when one says Hey Siri. Very useful if you use Siri, but also with a high energy price. The system is constantly listening to what sounds around you, looking for that order from Hey Siri. This consumes more energy. So we recommend that you turn it off. Go to Settings, select Siri and deactivate “Hey Siri.”
In the Display & Brightness Settings there is an option called Auto-Lock. Adjust that to 30 seconds and you will be surprised at the amount of energy you can save by letting the iPhone turn off at all those times throughout the day when we forget to turn it off or just something entertains us and we stop using it.
In the App Settings you can also deactivate that the Apps are updated automatically. It is very useful, because some Apps have several hundred megabytes to download via Wi-Fi, but then you have to decompress those packages, using the CPU massively. It is better to update your Apps manually, or to activate the automatic update when you have the iPhone loading.
Go to Settings >> iTunes & App Store and then deactivate the option of Updates.
Finally, it is usual that we often have many notifications coming from Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Tumblr, email, etc. Many of them are probably dispensable. Take some time to configure which Apps can show you notifications.
Go to Settings >> Notifications and choose which applications can send you notifications. Then disable the ones you don’t want to resieve notifications from.
The top 9 tips above can help you consume less energy and improve iPhone’s battery life to endure much better throughout the day. In addition, if you have any iOS system errors/issues, you can try this iOS Repir Tool to help you fix iOS back to normal.
