Infographic reveals 14 ways to increase the battery life on your Apple iPhone

Infographic reveals 14 ways to increase the battery life on your Apple iPhone
Battery life is one thing that iPhone users always want more of. The higher capacity juicers on the Apple iPhone 7 (1960mAh, up from 1760mAh on the iPhone 6s) and Apple iPhone 7 Plus (2900mAh, up from 2750mAh on the iPhone 6s Plus) add about two hours of battery life over last year's models. As Apple's marketing chief Phil Schiller noted last week, "the A10 Fusion chip is the most powerful chip on any smartphone while delivering the best battery life ever in an iPhone."

But it still might not be enough for power starved iPhone users. App developers The App Geeks have sent us an infographic that reveals 14 different things you can do to extend the battery life on your iOS powered handset. Some are things that you might have already thought of, such as lowering the brightness of the screen on your iPhone. Disabling GPS or Location Services is something that you've probably already tried. But there are also some tricks listed that never crossed your mind.

We've broken down the infographic into bite-sized morsels for your viewing pleasure. Want to save battery life on your Apple iPhone? Click on the slideshow below.

@kiko007 "I wish iOS had Greenify" That's the cons of having the restricted iOS, bruh... You can't have anything other than what Apple wants you to have. Lulz lol

I think he's joking. iOS doesn't need anything like that. It already does a pretty great background management. Sometimes bugs will cause battery problems but thats a different thing. Dr.Phil has explained it well below.

great background management == freeze and switch

Would you prefer stop and reload? (I'm aware that's a Gun Smoke reference.....)

iOS devices with 2GB Ram or more have an option to allow to not allow background apps. I wish Android too natively have that option. And better if you could do that in system apps(mainly google apps) as well.

Greenify is total BS, apply some common sense; how can another running app save battery??? It's a placebo effect, nothing more. One that appeals to the typical small brained android user.

Greenify with root is the best thing you can have to save battery. It helps tremendously.

True, but greenify didn't work well on my OnePlus One with Lollipop, it kept putting extensions for my central file manager (Total Commander) to hibernate, making them unavailable in Total Commander...gave up on it and just stuck with what's offered by Privacy Guard that came with my phone to control wakelocks. Then again, that's besides the point.

Why don't you set those plugins not to hibernate?

Tried that, still didn't get them working, only when Greenify was completely disabled before it finally worked. No idea why that is...it was the LAN and Dropbox addin for Total Commanader.

Greenify is an app that just makes Android behave much like iOS already behaves: it hibernates applications in the background instead of letting them silently run like Android naturally allows. So only apps in the foreground are active while all other applications are frozen but still accessible.

No, they don't.

it doesn't need one, you don't even need to close/quit(iOS doesn't allow quit/exit button by the way), it's a smart OS, the OS itself should know how to handle background processes.

Probably because it's constantly reading all the data on your device that it can.

and backup all of it to their server

That's by far the easiest way to increase battery life yet they insist on making anorexic credit card phones.
