All the iPhone, iPad and iPod users always complain about the Apple’s quick draining battery. The developers at Apple are working day and night to fix this issue but still they are not been able to yield any positive results. The latest version of iOS i.e. iOS 10 comes loaded with some improved features that help in saving the battery but still these are not enough to keep the device running all day long.
In this blog, you will be reading about five ways through which you can save the battery juice and will be able to use your device all day long.
1. Background App Refresh
There are several iOS development apps which continuously run in the background. Well, these are main culprits that bear the most responsibility of battery drainage. The Background App Refresh feature allows these apps to run at the backend because of which apps continually refresh the content via Wi-Fi or cellular data. To disable it, visit Settings > General > Background App Refresh > Turn Off.
2. Location-Tracking Apps
Many apps like Google Maps, Facebook and even iOS Camera- track the user’s location all the time. You can simply turn off the Location Services by going to Settings > Privacy > Location Services or else you can disable location function of certain apps one by one.
Apple launched a bunch of new animations and a parallax feature which makes it seem like the wallpaper is moving behind the app drawer. This feature also eats up the battery. The iOS app developers are working really hard to make these motions smooth and less battery consuming. In case you don’t like this functions, you can switch it off by going to Settings > General > Accessibility and click Reduce Motion to “off.”
4. Automatic Updating
iOS 10 automatically downloads all the app updates whenever they are connected to the Wi-Fi or Cellular Data. Although it’s a smart function but any user won’t like this thing to happen especially when he’s running low on juice. To disable this, visit Settings > iTunes and Apple Store and uncheck the Updates option.
5. Turn Off AirDrop
AirDrop allows users to quickly share the files with other users who are connected to the same network. But when you are not using it, do your battery a favor just turn it off so that your phone can last a whole day. Slide open the Control Center and switch it off there.
