Whether you have a shiny, brand new iPhone or are still rocking one from a few generations ago, one of the most frustrating things about these amazing devices is that the battery runs low way too fast. Unless you get the chance to plug your phone in on your lunch break, there’s a good chance it will be dead sometime around dinner time. Forget to charge it overnight? Forget it! Plan for a day without Twitter and Angry Birds.
Here are 14 small battery saving tips that may not seem like much by themselves, but when you combine a bunch of them together you should see a noticeable difference in how long your power lasts.
14. Auto Brightness
Apple has a setting called auto-brightness, that is supposed to adjust your screen for you. But if you turn it off and start adjusting it manually (there is a handy slider in the control center), you can keep your screen only as bright as you need. Since your screen is the number one consumer of a battery power on your phone, keeping it as dim aspossible will go a long way.
