How iOS 13 can fix your iPhone's battery life


We are in the age where smartphone battery lifespan is short as a result of demanding apps. Almost all smartphones nowadays have significant battery performance issues. Maybe Samsung's new battery will change that, read more here.

Before you consider using this feature check what is consuming your battery life.
  • Open the Settings app and choose battery.
  • Look for apps and services that consume your battery.
  • If you see an app that is draining the battery but you don’t even use the app, simply deleting the app will help.

You can mistakenly leave your iPhone to charge up to 100% all the time, but this slowly decreases the battery's capacity. Apple has a solution embedded in its latest software update. All you have to do is turn on the Optimize Battery charging feature. Your iPhone will learn your daily charging routine and the phone won't charge past 80 %. Technically Apple is not to blame for your iPhone not lasting as long as usual but this update even targets older phones.


Here are a few other tips should the issue persist:

1. Check if Battery is Healthy & Operating Properly

You can check iPhone battery health through Battery settings as well.
  • Open the Settings app and then choose “Battery”.
  • Go to “Battery Health”.
  • If the battery is not operating at peak performance it may need to be replaced to restore full functionality and expected battery life to the iPhone.

2. Disable Background App Refresh in iOS

  • Open the “Settings” app, then go to “General”.
  • Choose “Background App Refresh” and turn this switch to the OFF position.

3. Disable Unneeded Location Services for Apps

  • Open the Settings app, then go to “Privacy”.
  • Choose “Location Services”.
  • Scroll down to the app list and disable location access for apps that do not explicitly require location data for core functionality by tapping on them and choosing “Never” or “While Using the App”.


4. Use Low Power Mode on iPhone

 It can offer a huge boost to battery life on the iPhone in iOS 13 and other versions too.
