If you’re an iPhone user, I’m sure there have been times when you’ve used your phone a lot on a particular day and you suddenly notice that the day isn’t over but your battery is low. Unfortunately, this usually happens when it’s either not convenient or possible to stop and plug your phone in.

Fortunately, today I’ll be sharing a few tips that you can use to squeeze every last bit of life out of your iPhone’s battery.

  1. If you don’t absolutely need to have your phone on, you might consider turning it off which would hopefully save enough battery power to make an emergency call or text.
  2. If that’s not an option, you can switch to “Low Power Mode”. When enabled, iOS disables some features like mail fetch, automatic app updates, automatic downloads for apps like weather applications, and various visual features. The easiest way to switch to low power mode is to tell Siri to switch to low power mode.
  3. Turn off Wi-Fi if you’re not using it. Especially if you’re not near any Wi-Fi signals.
  4. Turn off Bluetooth.
  5. Turn down your brightness to the lowest level that you can still see your screen.
  6. I know most of us have a habit of checking apps like Facebook every five minutes but when you’re really running low on battery power, you need to be disciplined enough to not use your phone unless it’s an absolute emergency.
  7. Turn LTE off. LTE or 4G can use more battery power than 3G so you might want to temporarily turn it off. Just go to Settings > Cellular > Enable LTE > Off.

Hopefully these tips will help you the next time you’re in a bind and you notice that your iPhone battery is almost dead.
