For any professional, especially those working from home and dealing with clients, your smartphone is your lifeline. If you’re out and about, a dead phone is one of the worst things that can happen to you for your business- especially if you depend on it for calling, texting, emailing, and GPS. It can be avoided by planning ahead, but sometimes the battery life just seems to drain away extremely fast. This post by Alan White at Buzzfeed shows the most common battery killers in Iphones:
-Limit your location services- apps that are constantly using your GPS feature to update your location are really bad for your battery. Go to Privacy > Location Services > Off.
-Close the apps you’re not using- double tap the main button, and swipe up to close them. Delete apps you don’t want anymore by holding down and pressing the X.
-Turn the brightness down- Go to settings > Wallpaper and Brightness, then turn it down just enough to where you can still read it.
-Turn on airplane mode when you’re not going to be using your phone for a while- it’ll do wonders for your battery life.
-Turn off automatic downloads- go to Settings > Itunes and App Store > Automatic Downloads – then swipe it to “Off”.
