Battery Life iOS 7
Your iPhone’s new operating system comes up with plenty of new features which you are going to love. But sometimes these new features drain battery which causes an annoyance. Something you surely wouldn’t want. But luckily there is a way to improve the battery life.
Many iOS 7’s features are turned on by default which drains battery a lot. So here are some of the common tips to improve battery life on iOS 7.
1) Brightness Settings
Brightness of your iPhone can be a major reason for reducing your battery. You can disable the auto-brightness and then set your brightness according to your choice. Make sure it shouldn’t be too much bright. You can make these changes by going to Settings > Wallpapers & Brightness.
2). Turn Off AirDrop/Bluetooth
Use Air drop when it’s required. The rest of the time it will just suck your battery. You can turn it off by simply swiping up your control Center and hit the toggle.
Same goes for the Bluetooth. It’s best when you’re using it. It’s a big battery drain aswell. Just turn it off if you are not using. Go to settings > Bluetooth and then switch it off or simply swipe up to open Control Center.
3) WiFi Searching
There’s no need to turn your wi-fi all the time. It looks up for wi-fi devices all the time, which makes it connected to unsecured WiFi’s and in return it drains your battery. Turn off your Wi-Fi when it’s not required. Just swipe up from the bottom of any screen to call up Control Center and turn off the WiFi switch.
4) Turn off Parallax
Parallax is an extra feature that is fun to have. The new parallax view is for the home screen and new animated wallpaper. It looks amazing, but again takes up precious battery power. To turn it off go to Settings > General > Accessibility and then switch on “Reduce Motion” which turns off the home screen’s parallax view.
