Does your iPhone battery last? Quiet, with these tricks you can scratch a few hours

Year after year, with each new iPhone, we have powerful processors, better screens, better sound, better design? ... And endless new features - both hardware level and software level - that make life simpler . All this is very good, yes ... But we continue with a problem that we have been dragging for many years : the battery.

What is the use of so much technology and so many additions if we have to go with the magazine under our arm ? We totally depend on the charger of our smartphone. With these little tricks you can "forget it" more often at home.

Disabling System Functions Using Location

The easiest and fastest would basically cover all the goodness that iOS offers us to save the maximum battery . The fact is that we do not invest hundreds or even thousands of euros to have our iPhone running at 30% of its possibilities. With a few small tricks, you will save battery while maintaining the functionality of your iPhone .

By default, Apple leaves too many system functions that use localization active, which I think is totally unnecessary. Of course, it depends on the use that each gives the device. We will deactivate those functions that you can find in Settings - Privacy - Location - System Services .

  • Apple ads by location: Used to show advertising based on your location , my experience is quite consuming if you are a person who moves a lot. 
  • Placement Warnings: Used to provide you with geographically relevant notices , such as a reminder to call someone upon arrival, a time to go to your next appointment, or a recommendation for an application, Depending on where you are currently. According to the work of each one, this function can be of great or of null utility. 
  • Search my iPhone: This is an indispensable function to locate your iPhone in case of loss or theft, as well as to be able to block or delete it remotely. Function that should always be enabled . 
  • Calibration of the compass: Its own name indicates it, is used to see in a map the true north , since the magnetic and geographic are different. Something not used by the user of foot, can be deactivated. 
  • Calibration of the displacement: It is used to quantify the section of sport activity , count steps, distances in race, etc. If you have an Apple Watch - especially second generation - it is not necessary to have it activated. In addition, you can take a look at How to calibrate your Apple Watch . 
  • Share Location : Used to share location with others in Messages and Search Friends. There are many everyday applications that allow you to do this, having it activated does not consume until you use it. 
  • Wi-Fi network connection: Send information to Apple from our Wi-Fi connections ... I'm not sure why, but better off. 
  • Emergency SOS: In this case, essential if you have activated the function of calling an SOS number and can locate where you are. It is recommended to leave it active. 
  • Homekit: Useful if you have compatible devices at home so you can perform different functions when you are close to home. Like turning on the lights or starting an electronic device. If this is not the case, turn it off. 
  • Suggestions by location: Used in Safari or Spotlight searches, precise location is sent to Apple to show you suggestions. It is recommended to deactivate it and to make more precise searches. 
  • Time zone: If you travel extensively in zones where there are changes of time use with this function the time will be adjusted automatically . If not, better disable it. 
  • Important places: Here you store all the information of all the places where you go , it is to say somehow, a tracing of everything that you do. It is also used to know where you parked the car, but better that it is deactivated than the parking function already have it in applications. 
  • IPhone Analysis: If you share this data with Apple, it will be used to send the information they think is convenient. Better disable it. 
  • Routing and traffic: Apple uses it to show the density of traffic we see in Maps. It is advisable to deactivate it if you use the car a lot, since you will be part of the "density" during all the journeys. 
  • Popular by: Used to tell Apple where you downloaded an app to recommend it to others. Another function to deactivate.
Other tricks to improve battery life

  • Automatic Brightness: Here is some discrepancy because Apple recommends to activate it . I have tried manual and automatic, the result is that if you do not change with too much constancy of luminous environments it is better to have it automatic. There is nothing better here than trying it yourself and leaving it to your needs. 
  • Reduce notifications: On many occasions we leave all notifications of applications turned on by default, and a large number of those applications hardly use them. Leave only the notifications that really make useful notifications of applications that you use habitual activated. 
  • Wi-Fi Call Assistant: If your operator gives you this option, turn it on to use calls over Wi-Fi when coverage is not very good. You will avoid that the antenna of the iPhone has to work too much. You have it in Settings - Phone . 
  • Disable automatic downloads from the App Store: This allows applications to be installed and updated in the background . You can turn it off in Settings - iTunes & App Store . 
  • Changing the lock time: The shorter the time the display is on, the less battery you consume, the more you consume the device. You can change it in Settings - Display and brightness - Automatic lock . 
  • Disable lift to reactivate: With this option every time you lift the device the screen is turned on so you can see if you have notifications without having to interact with the iPhone. For me this function is very useful, but also the most consuming if you look at too much. You can turn it off in Settings - Display and Brightness . 
  • Background Updates: This is the function that consumes the most battery . It is used so that applications can update their information in the background. Enable only those you think necessary, and for the love of Jobs ... Do not activate the Facebook! His battery hunger is insatiable. Twitter in the background is usually another one that consumes enough battery, it all depends on the cane you give it. 
  • If you have an Apple Watch, use: From the Apple Watch we can see notifications and answer them, this will help a lot to save battery by not touching the iPhone at all. 
  • It uses battery saving mode: I think there is not much to say about this, the saving is remarkable in exchange for reducing the brightness of the screen and the power of the device.
And if with all this you can not save battery ... Shoot airplane mode as much as you can! It is the only option that guarantees you a huge battery saving. Where is the time of my Nokia 3310 that you forgot what it is to charge a mobile ...
