Apple offers decent battery life on its devices that include the iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple Watch and MacBook, but it also depends on the type of user you are. While some users easily squeeze out a day of use with their phones, many aggressive users don’t even get half of it.

Here’s how you can maximise the battery life of your iPhone
Update to the latest software
First and foremost, you should update the latest software available for your device.

- Tap on update to install the latest software.
- You can also turn on automatic updates, by going to Settings > General > Software Update and tapping on Automatic Updates.
- Turn on Download iOS Updates and Install iOS Updates. This will enable your device to install updates automatically.
The second method is to optimize the settings that include dimming the brightness of the iPhone’s screen and using Wi-Fi.
Adjust the brightness of the screen
- To dim the brightness, you will have to open the Control Centre and drag the Brightness slider to the bottom.
- Alternatively, you can optimise the brightness by switching on Auto-Brightness.
- To activate Auto-Brightness, go to Settings > General.

iPhone users can manage the battery life of the device by viewing the battery usage information. You can view which app is draining how much battery. To do the same, go to Settings > Battery.

- Alternatively, you can select between app refresh on Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi & Mobile Data.
- Go to Settings > Privacy.
