How You Are Unknowingly Killing Your iPhone Battery On iOS 9
By Yap Yen, 17 Dec 2015
The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were designed to offer from 14 to 24 hours of usage with the iOS 9. If your phone does not last that long, you might be doing something wrong. Since every little bit goes a long way, these small tips might be able to help you gain more battery power in a day.
Switch your phone onto ‘Low Power Mode’.
‘Low Power Mode’ is one of the best ways to stretch your battery life with iOS 9. When your iPhone’s battery levels dip to 20%, your phone will prompt you to activate ‘Low Power Mode’. Doing so will change your battery from red to yellow. If you are expecting a long day ahead, activate ‘Low Power Mode’ earlier to make sure your phone battery lasts longer.
When charging your phone in ‘Low Power Mode’, your iPhone will turn it off when the battery is charged to 80%. When this notification appears, just swipe left to hit ‘Enable Again’, so you do not have to remember to enable ‘Low Power Mode’ again later.
Stop oversharing your every move.
Although iOS 9 lets you share your location with your friends via the ‘Details’ tab in ‘Messages’, we are sure that you don’t actually want it switched on the whole day and sharing your every move with your friends. Switch this function off by going to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and disable ‘Share Location From’. Alternatively, you can choose to share your location from another device with better battery life, like your iPad.
Killing all apps.
Have you been sick of your iPhone dying on you before the day is done that you just close every app in desperation? With the iOS 9, you will not need to. Under the new dedicated ‘Battery’ tab, you can see which apps are using the most of your battery juice. Choose to close the energy-sapping apps to conserve your battery life.
