Apple usually offers good battery life with its devices, be it iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch models, or others. However, in the past, Apple has been accused of deliberately slowing down iPhone models with aging batteries and recently paid $ 113 million (approximately Rs.819 billion) to settle the BatteryGate case. While Apple believes this is to help maintain battery health over a long period of time, it has since introduced battery and performance management features to users, aside from sharing tips and recommendations on how to maintain battery health. Some of the general practices Apple recommends include updating to the latest software, avoiding high ambient temperatures, removing certain cases while charging, and keeping devices half-charged if they are going to be stored for an extended period of time.

Apple has a page on their website with information on how to maximize the battery life and lifespan of your iPhone. The first is to update it to the latest software.

Update your iPhone

  1. Go to on your iPhone the settings.

  2. You should see the available update here. If you see an update, tap on it and your iPhone will start updating. Make sure you have enough battery.

  3. Alternatively, you can connect your iPhone to your computer and update it with the latest version of iTunes.

You can also extend battery life by adjusting the screen brightness and using a Wi-Fi connection whenever possible. You can either dim the screen brightness of your iPhone or activate the automatic brightness.

iPhone users can also turn on power saving mode when it gets weak. When the battery drops to 20 percent, you will receive a notification and the power saving mode can be activated with a tap of your finger. To activate power saving mode manually:

  1. Go to the settings.
  2. Scroll down and tap battery.
  3. Switch the power saving mode to On.

Users can view information about their iPhone’s battery usage by going to Battery Settings (Settings> Battery). To save battery life, iPhone users can also turn off settings like background updates for the app and location services. Here’s how:
