Top Tips to prolong your iPhone and iPad Battery

There are many things that can impact the Battery life of your iPhone or iPad, including lots of Apps and how those Apps are being used. We've compiled a list of tweaks you can make to your iPhone or iPad settings which can help you prolong the life of your Battery, keep it charged for longer and even help to charge quicker.

  • Apps running in the Background

Many Apps run in the background, even if you close them down (Force Quit). This is meant to keep the Apps up-to-date in real-time without any user intervention. While this may be true, it can have a severe impact on Battery Usage. You can stop Apps from running in the background by changing a setting on your device called Background App Refresh.

Open the Settings App on your Device and tap General > Background App Refresh. Here you will be presented with the option to switch off Background App Refresh. In addition, it lists all of your Apps and whether they are running in the Background.

We recommend scrolling through the list of Apps to see which ones you may need to keep running in the Background. For Example, any App that sends you notifications that you need real-time, such as Messenger. Or simply switch off Background App Refresh completely if you don't need any Apps to run in the background.
