Why Your iPhone Dies Quickly

February 24, 2017

iPhone’s have only advanced their features on their devices over the past few years. However, one thing that comes with these added features and advancements is a weak battery life. The battery can only take so much and last so long. Your battery might not even last half the day, but this doesn’t have to be a thing. Here we will discuss the reasons why your iPhone’s battery life is bad and steps you can take to fix this.

You’re not limiting location services. You might be surprised at the number of applications that use location services that don’t even need it. All you have to do is go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and you will be able to select which applications make use of this and which ones don’t.


Your mail is always fetching. If you have your mail connected to your phone, it is going to constantly be checking your mail server waiting for a new message. By going to Setting > Mail, Contacts, and Calendars > Fetch New Data > Manually, you are able to only have your iPhone check for mail when you open the app.


Your apps are always running. iPhone has been able to run multiple apps at the same time. The problem with this is that it kills your battery if you fail to remember to quit an application for a long period of time. You can get rid of this problem by double-tapping the home button and swiping the screen card up to quit the app.


Your screen is too bright. It should be obvious that a bright screen can kill your battery. However, many individuals fail to understand or acknowledge this. As a result, these people find their battery dying much faster. You can fix this problem by going to Settings > Wallpapers & Brightness > and toggle off Auto Brightness.


You have automatic downloads on. iPhone gives you the opportunity to have automatic downloads, but this can cause quite a problem similarly to the one you get from email. If you have automatic updates on, your phone is constantly searching for updates. To prevent this from happening just go to Settings > iTunes and App Store and toggle which applications you’d like to have automatic downloads for


You have AirDrop continuously on. AirDrop allows iPhone users to send photos, videos, and other media to iPhones in the same vicinity. However, having this on can drain your battery. You can turn this on and off just in times when you need to use it.


You continuously run Bluetooth. Bluetooth isn’t as useful as it would have been in the past. There are now other features or applications that now do the same jobs that Bluetooth once did. While you may use it for a Bluetooth speaker, make sure that you turn it off once you are done.
