Follow these battery life tips when your phone’s life is waning

iPhone /

A consistent annoyance that people have with all phones is lack of battery life. This is one area, unfortunately, where the iPhone is about the same as the competition. Most people know the pain of continually plugging their iPhone in throughout the day in an effort to make its battery last longer, and this tendency increases as the device ages. There are many steps that can be taken in order to combat the onset of battery fatigue. Below, we'll go over some of the most useful tips that are designed to allow you to use your phone without having to lug around a charger all day.

Signal strength
A problem that many people don't know is effecting their phones is a lack of signal strength where they spend most of their day. iPhones are programmed to be constantly searching for signal as long as theirs is below the optimum level, so it will expend more battery than it needs to for a long time if it just sits on a desk. PC Magazine recommends that you set your phone to Airplane mode if you aren't going to use it to make calls during your work hours, as this will prevent it from using a lot of battery. Similarly, just turning off your 4G service can reduce the power consumed by the phone.

Screen problems
Your screen is the part of a phone that, for most people, takes up the largest percentage of their battery use. In order to deal with this issue, you should use these iPhone 5c battery life tips: Turn your screen brightness down, and reduce the time it takes for your phone to automatically sleep. By turning your brightness down and turning off auto brightness, you can reduce the power your phone needs in order to present your screen to you. If you don't need the phone to be as bright as possible, this is a good solution for an otherwise difficult problem. By setting your phone to sleep earlier, you reduce the overall amount of time it spends lit up, which should also help its battery performance throughout the day.
