All of this is preventable and should help increase your strength a little more.

Avoid cold temperatures

Your iPhone doesn’t like extreme temperatures.

High temperatures can cause the iPhone to overheat and need a little rest.

But extreme cold also puts a strain on the battery.

As Apple itself says, “Using an iOS or iPadOS device outside of its operating range in very cold conditions may temporarily decrease battery life and cause your device to turn off.”

“The battery life returns to normal when you expose your device to a higher ambient temperature.

“Your iOS or iPadOS device may not charge or may stop charging if it gets too cold.”

screen brightness

The screen light consumes a lot of electricity.

Most read in “Phones and Gadgets”.

So if you work a lot with your iPhone, the battery will of course drain faster.

An easy way to avoid this is to turn the brightness down.

Making sure the screen turns off when you’re not using your phone can also save you a lot of money.

rogue apps

Apps running in the background can also consume a lot of battery.

Fortunately, there is a way to find out who the culprits are.

You can check this by going to Ideas and knock battery.

A list of the apps that consume the most battery is then displayed.

Tap each icon and it will detail how many minutes it is consuming in the background and on screen.

Poor network coverage

Being in a place with poor network coverage can also affect the battery.

That’s because your phone is constantly looking for a better connection.
