The best tricks to save battery in each of your Apple devices

Regardless of the device we are using, it always comes to mind that "what can I do to make the battery last longer?" . Today the technology used by the batteries is stagnant until the new systems become accessible and can be introduced to consumer electronics, so Apple plays while optimizing the consumption of its components with the same possibilities to offer better results. And this is why we bring you a series of tips that you can apply to your Apple devices to improve battery life. We will not extend, only one or two per device, but that can make a difference at the end of the day.

Improving the battery life of iPods.
Nothing is more frustrating than running out of battery when you are listening to music on public transport, or on the way to work, or just taking a walk on the street, so we bring you a couple of tricks to make your iPods' batteries last longer .

· If you are given to use the equalizer of your music player, stop doing so. The use of the equalizer makes the processor have to work more for a simple task such as playing music, thus spending more battery.

· Do not leave the screen brightness always on. This may seem obvious, but in a device like the iPod, the illumination of the screen supposes an enormous consumption, and in a music player what interests us is to be able to reproduce as much as the battery allows us.

The battery of your AirPods, a little more durable.
AirPods are one of those devices that, given their nature, gives us to think that their batteries carry continuous wear since whenever we do not use them they are in the charging base, although this is not a problem since Apple has implemented technologies that They help load management , there is some trick we can use.

· Do not use too many intelligent functions of your AirPods. The AirPods have a lot of sensors that should be alert to, for example, command like "Hey Siri", or to automatic ear detection. These sensors can be deactivated, so that the battery does not wear out in actions that we may not use so often. Yes, it is true that this advice comes at the cost of sacrificing benefits , but maybe it can be a good option for when we need yes or yes to make our headphones last longer.

The battery of the Macbooks, long but never hurts a little more.
Many of the less demanding users with the MacOS environment may not know it yet, but the Macbook has a whole section dedicated to energy saving . We just have to open "System Preferences" and look for "Economizer." In this section, the Macbook allows us to configure, for example, the shutdown time of the unused screen, the standby of the storage disks when they are not necessary or how the computer behaves if it is plugged in, or on the contrary using the battery

· Disable the Power Nap option for your device when it is not connected to the power. Power Nap is an option that allows the Mac to receive for example emails or application updates while it is at rest. This function is very useful if we always need to be connected and it is really worth having it active if we are going to have the Macbook connected to the power. But when the power supply falls on the battery it is highly recommended to deactivate it to avoid power consumption with the computer at rest.

· Remove the brightness of the keyboard whenever it is not necessary. Another recommendation that although many logic we do not think about when we want to make our batteries last longer, but that is highly recommended.

The iPhone battery, from sun to sun.
Apple strives to make the iPhones' batteries generation after generation last longer, and this year it has made it clear with the batteries of its new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro . But as not everyone can have the latest Apple devices, here we leave you a tip so that your iPhone does not turn off all day.

· Use the battery saver mode. Another tip that sounds super obvious but we do not use, the energy saving mode is designed so that the battery of iPhones suffers as little as possible when we use it for tasks that require little effort on the part of the device, and lowers the rate of application refresh to avoid wasting energy on updates. A very good idea since we do not always use 100% of the performance that our iPhones can achieve . The iPhone will always suggest that you put the energy saving mode when you reach 20% battery, but do not hesitate to do so before if you have trouble reaching the end of the day with a single charge.

The iPad and its large screen need a large battery.
While it is true that the iPad may be one of the devices that has fewer problems regarding the battery life, given its large size, it is always good for the battery to last a little longer. For the iPad you can apply exactly what we have already said with the iPhone , since when both work with iOS its energy management system is very similar. Also below we leave another tip to keep in mind.

· Lower the screen brightness. Obviously, given its size, the iPad screen will be your biggest source of consumption. Many times being accustomed to automatic screen brightness we do not think about modifying it manually, but we can always control it at our whim from the control center of our device. And if we do not need a high brightness because it is very sunny or we are visualizing something in particular, it will always be better to lower it manually to save some battery .

The battery of the Apple Watch, the most difficult to conserve.
We arrived at the last device and this could not be other than the most complex. The Apple Watch, given its size, faces a limitation that can hardly be saved , since it cannot have a larger battery. This is why Apple uses its engineers and programmers to optimize the performance of this device to the maximum and so that the battery can last us all day. There is little to do with this device rather than not abusing its use in applications that drain the battery, although it is possible, for example, to follow the next advice.

· Disable "Raise your wrist to wake up". This characteristic function of the Watch can cause the screen of our watch to activate a large number of times that were not necessary, and deactivating it will avoid unnecessary expense. Although yes, every time we want to see the time or a notification we will have to press the screen or the digital crown to turn it on. Luckily, with the “Always On display”, one of the most popular features of the new Apple Watch Series 5 , this issue improves and allows us to deactivate this function without compromising features since we can always have the time on the screen.
