Re: Iphone battery life?

While these tips won't give you an amazing performance boost they can help with some things.

 

1. Reduce the brightness on your phone.

2. Turn off automatic email checker

3. Kill any apps that are running in the background (press and hold the home button to see all running apps)

4. Turn off push notifications for apps that don't need it on

Re: Iphone battery life?

Which version of iPhone do you have, how old is it, and how long does your battery last?

Re: Iphone battery life?

I would also advise to turn off 3G and/or Wi-Fi when you're not using it directly.

What is "lousy sort of"? - Starting your day on a full battery, how long does it last, or what is your battery % at the end of the day?

 

How marginal is your signal? 1 bar?

 

An iPhone 4s should pretty much last a day with 3-4 hours of use and the rest standby - not including music (essentially free battery wise for local music, NOT streamed music) or games (2-3 hours total battery life playing games.)

 

You can talk, use the internet, or wifi, for 6+ hours a day, but that's gonna be pretty much it on one charge.

 

For me, if I am in a good signal area, I will end the day (15 hours off charger) at 40% or more battery left. If I am in a poor signal area, I can be at 10-20% left, on an iPhone4 (not 4s) with probably 2 hours of mixed use during the day.

Re: Iphone battery life?

4 hours of wifi use using 32% of the battery is pretty good - it's only rated for 10 hours on wifi.

Re: Iphone battery life?

There were rumors of an update that would address the battery issues but they found a memory leak during the testing. I have not heard anymore movement on the update.....

Hopefully Apple will fix this soon as it's impact is not consistent across users.

As others have stated in general, turn of the features your do not use but understand it will limit your experience and enjoyment. If you have a charger for your car, you can at least charge your iPhone at different times to make up for the shortfalls.

Re: Iphone battery life?

As long as we're on the subject, does anyone know why Apple refuses to make any device with a removable battery?  I know it complicates the design and construction a bit, but I can't see it effecting it that much.  The only reason I can think of is it encourages people to upgrade after about 2 years when the battery starts to die.

 

Any thoughts?
