Apple’s iPhone is a powerful device that, just like several electronics, requires some upkeep to ensure proper functioning. Your iPhone will keep working as long as you maintain its battery health.
Maintaining your battery health can save you money and inconvenience. However, iPhone battery health degrades over time, and you can take certain actions to prolong your device’s longevity. It helps to be aware of common battery issues and learn how to maintain the battery health of your iPhone.
Here are some ways to maintain your iPhone’s battery health.
Use the original Apple charger
Always use the original charger; otherwise, you could be causing significant damage to the iPhone battery. Apple chargers are tailored specifically to charge your devices to give you optimal charging conditions and stability for charging your devices.
Protect your phone from overheating
Sitting out in the sun and having your iPhone in direct sunlight can affect battery life. All you need to do is try to cover your iPhone under direct sunlight.
Enable Optimized Battery Charging options
Optimized Battery Charging is a feature that was introduced in iOS 13 that you should consider using to maintain your battery health. The feature allows the system to preserve its battery health. It reads your charging pattern and optimizes your iPhone for a longer battery span.
Enable Low Power Mode
Low Power Mode is an easy way to extend the battery life of your iPhone when it starts to get low. Your iPhone lets you know when your battery level goes down to 20% and again at 10%, and lets you turn on Low Power Mode with one tap. It reduces display brightness, optimizes device performance and minimizes system animations. Background features like AirDrop and iCloud sync will be disabled.
When you charge your phone up again, Low Power Mode automatically switches off.
Update your OS
Apple pushes constant iOS updates for bug fixes and improved performance. Always keep your iOS updated to the latest version. The updates regulate your iPhone charging speeds and prevent potential overheating.
Maintaining battery health can eliminate slowdowns, app crashes and more. Use these tips to ensure your iPhone’s battery stays healthy for longer.
