I get reasonably decent battery life from my iPhone, but I need to manage to get just a little more (and who doesn’t?). I don’t have time or inclination to go in and fiddle with specific settings—I’ve seen your tips in the past and they’re too complicated for me. Do you have any simple things I can do to increase my battery life?
I know sometimes our tips include solutions that are a little too complicated and if you just want to get something done sometimes that's too much effort. If you do want to get a little more time out of your iPhone's battery we've learned a little trick recently which can help.
There's an option on the iPhone if you have an iPhone five S or later or IOS nine or later, that you can use to turn off the screen.
If you just turn your phone over that is if it's face down the iPhone won't display incoming notifications. If you find that you're getting a lot of notifications for texts or e-mails and your phone is face up the screen lights up every time and every time the screen lights up that sucks some battery life out of your phone.
The easy trick then to save some battery life is to keep your phone face down now in order for this to work you have to turn on Fitness Tracking that's in the Settings under Privacy Motion and Fitness and then the Fitness Tracking option. Once you do that. Notifications won't display on the screen. If your phone is face down.
