Use Low-Power Mode To Lengthen Your iPhone’s Battery Life

Wednesday, December 7th, 2016 by | Filed Under: iOS, Smartphones

With the new age of fancy smartphones, come fancy apps and as much as we all love them dearly, sadly they are a system resource hog. Meaning that continuous usage of multiple apps eats up the phone’s battery life. Half a day of frequent use and you see the battery bar turning into that dreaded red color.

Since the release of iOS 9 however, Apple has made it much easier for a user to control how the iPhone runs and in turn, lengthen the battery life a single charge provides you. Today I am going to discuss two tricks using which you can ensure that your iPhone does not die on you in the middle of a busy day.



  1. The magic of the low power mode

Normally, when the iPhone battery status reaches the ‘20% battery power left’ mark, it gives you the option of putting the phone in ‘low power mode’ so that you can get the most out of whatever battery life is remaining. By some estimations, low power mode gives you anywhere between one to three hours extra, depending on how often you use the phone.

Now here is the good news. You do not need to wait till you are down to 20% remaining battery. You can turn on the low power mode anytime you want. This is a perfect solution for those who have a long day ahead of them and aren’t able to charge their phones.

It is really easy. Simply go to Ssettings and scroll down to Battery. Once you are in there, simply activate the Low Power Mode. As easy as that!

Low power mode accomplishes what otherwise would take you a whole lot of taps to do. Essentially, it changes a bunch of settings on your phone that will conserve battery power. For instance, activating Low Power Mode reduces screen brightness, disable auto fetching of email, disables motion effects, pauses any background activity and disables animated wallpapers among other things.

Isn’t it convenient? If you had to do it manually it would’ve been a pain in the behind. Do note however that you might experience a slight slowness in performance but that is a very small price to pay for a couple of hours of extra battery life.
