10 tips and tricks to significantly improve battery life on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus

So, you've got yourself an iPhone 7 or an iPhone 7 Plus? Great choice! These have great battery life; actually, these are Apple's iPhones with the longest battery life. Part of this is due to the ultra-snappy and efficient quad-core A10 Fusion chip and another part is due to the larger batteries inside these. 

While you get around 40 hours of wireless audio playback on the iPhone 7, on the iPhone 7 Plus you get some 60 hours, and 3G talk time is also substantially longer on the iPhone 7 Plus: 21 hours vs 14 hours on the iPhone 7. Our battery tests showed that the iPhone 7 delivers 7 hours and 46 minutes of battery life, while the iPhone 7 Plus unsurprisingly has a battery endurance of 9 hours and 5 minutes.

All fine and dandy, but there's much you can do to further improve the battery life of your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus. You likely know and apply many of these already, but we'll anyway give you a handful of tips and tricks to take home and up your battery life game.
