If you are facing the battery drain issue on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 9.0.x, iOS 9.1, iOS 9.2 or iOS 9.2.1, then don’t worry you are not the only one. Here we are with some quick tips for iOS 9 battery saving.
iOS 9 Battery Saving Tips And Tricks
The same problem exists with iPhone battery as it always drains so quickly, although we use different tricks to save device battery life, but generally we charge our phones at least once in a day, and it requires 2 or 3 hours to charge your phone 100%, so you really finding a way to speed up the charge time.
Optimize the Settings depend on your usage:
- If you hardly use Bluetooth then turn it off (Settings -> General -> Bluetooth)
- As I mentioned earlier, review the list of apps that are using Location services, and disable it for apps you think can be used without tracking your location (Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services).
- If you check multiple email accounts on your iPhone, enable Push for only the most important email account/accounts. For other accounts, fetch emails manually if possible for better battery life.
- Turn off Siri’s Raise to Speak feature if you don’t use it frequently (Settings -> General -> Siri -> Raise to Speak).
- Turn off Siri if you don’t use it (Settings -> General -> Siri).
- Turn off Personal Hotspot if you’re not using it (Settings -> Personal Hotspot).
- Turn off equalizer setting for song playback (Settings -> Music -> EQ).
Other General tips:
- Set Auto-Lock interval so that your iPhone will turn off more quickly after a period of inactivity. To set the auto-Lock interval, launch the Settings app, tap on General and then Auto-Lock and set the auto-lock interval to either 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 minutes.
- You’re probably aware that using Wi-Fi drains iPhone’s battery, but perhaps you didn’t know that one of the most intensive processes that iPhone’s Wi-Fi chip has to do is search for available network. So if this happens in regular intervals, it’s going to have a noticeable impact on your battery. To disable this feature, launch the Settings app, tap on Wi-Fi, and tap on the On/Off toggle for Ask to Join Networks to disable it. Please note that by disabling this feature, your iPhone will join known Wi-Fi networks automatically, but you will have to manually select a network if no known networks are available. Note: It is disabled by default.
- Dimming the screen helps to extend battery life. You can either lower the default screen brightness based on your preference or turn on Auto-Brightness to allow the screen to adjust its brightness based on current lighting conditions. Launch the Settings app, scroll down and tap on Brightness & Wallpaper and set Auto-Brightness to On. Note: Apple enables it by default.
- Turn off Location services for the following System System services: Diagnostics & Usage, Setting Time Zone, Location Based iAds (Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services -> System Services).
Hard reset your iPhone:
Hold-down the Home button and Sleep-Wake button at the same time for ten seconds, right until the Apple logo shows up.
Use Low Power Mode
On iOS 9 use Low Power Mode which is unique to iOS 9 and which may fix the same issue. As when device battery level reach to critical level which is around 20% mark, then iOS will ask for Low Power Mode automatically. So it is good to use Low Power Mode manually by navigating to Settings app – > Battery – > Low Power Mode.
Toggle Off iCloud Keychain
iOS 9 also have iCloud Keychain feature for its user convenience. This feature basically save the passwords and other credentials and keep all the other device using the same Apple ID for signing in. Navigate to Settings app – > iCloud – > Keychain and toggle it off.
We hope the above iOS 9 battery saving tips and tricks will preserve your battery life of iOS 9.
