When to replace an iPhone battery

The worst feature of the Lithium-ion battery in a smartphone is that it wears out much faster than other parts of the phone.

Many iPhone owners complain that the device drains quickly. Fortunately, several settings can be used to extend the life of your iPhone’s battery. Below we have listed the most useful ones available for iPhones running iOS 14 or later.

If your iPhone battery life draining fast, check the following:

  1. App update in the background?

All apps can affect battery life.

Most apps on your phone connect to a server somewhere to send and receive data.

First, open Settings, then the General menu item, then select the item called Application update in the background. Here we can enable or turn off app updates in the background.

For certain applications (such as messaging apps), however, it is advisable to leave the automatic update switched on.

  1. Applications that require a lot of battery usage

Some applications cause serious problems even for the latest devices, such as various games or various photo and video applications.

  1. Notifications

Another way to increase battery life is to turn off notifications for certain apps. To do this, open the Settings menu, then select Notifications.

  1. Dark mode

Dark Mode can be one of the most efficient methods of all.

Using Dark Mode does not require as much energy as using Light Mode. Although it may take some time to get used to, many people also prefer it for aesthetic reasons.

The dark appearance can be enabled in the Settings menu, by clicking on Display and brightness. You may use this all the time, or you can choose to turn on the feature at a certain time every day.

  1. Location

Location services also consume a lot of energy. If you want to check which applications are aware of your location, you can do so by going to Settings > Privacy > Location.

Three settings are available:

  • never
  • when in use
  • the applications always know where you are

If the tracking is constantly on, it certainly puts a strain on the system and the battery. Turn off the GPS or set which applications can use it.

  1. Automatic locking

The longer the screen is off, the less it drains the battery, so you should consider setting the screen to be automatically locked by your phone as quickly as possible.

To do this, change the Auto-lock setting under Settings, Display and brightness, then Auto-lock, and set it to 30 seconds.

  1. Old iPhone model

If your phone is older, there is a good chance that it does not meet the system requirements of many applications. In such cases, it is worth thinking about replacing it, or if that is not possible, using basic applications.

  1. Bad battery

If you’ve checked everything and your phone drains quickly without using it, maybe even within minutes, your battery probably needs to be replaced.

If you get the notification Service Battery, it is worth contacting a reliable service provider to replace the iPhone’s battery.
