iPhones look good, are great to use, but its main guiding force is definitely the battery. So, breakages aside, battery performances issues definitely deal with the bulk of complaints regarding the iPhone’s performances.

So, after a lot of research and testing, five main reasons behind draining of battery life on the iPhone have been found, and with that the tips to secure. These are:

Cold Weather:

Undoubtedly, this is the biggest battery drain. This refers to both charging the battery in the cold, as well as using the iPhone in the cold. While hot weather can have a detrimental effect on performance and battery life as well, nothing is more harmful to the battery than the cold. Room temperature of 20°C/70°F, is the best temperature for charging equipment. However, since this temperature wouldn’t be available in all the rooms or situations, this range can be extended out to 5 to 45°C (41 to 113°F). So, anything to either side of this and things can get bad for the battery. This is especially true while charging the battery at temperatures below 0°C/32°F, and this might permanently damage the battery.


  • Storage and charging the iPhone as much as possible, close to the room temperature.


  • KeepingiPhone in a pocket when in cold weather.


  • In case of excessive cold,iPhone must be placed in a kit.


  • iPhone shouldn’t be exposed to cold soaked in a cold car in winter.


Screen Brightness:

These days modern displays are found to be very much bright, and that backlight is a huge drain on the battery. Especially if the user uses the iPhone a lot, leading to a whole lot of notifications that activate the display.


The easiest ones being dimming the display and turning on Auto-Brightness to get the best battery life.

  • To dim, users need to swipe up from the bottom of any screen to open Control Center and drag the Brightness slider to the down to adjust.


  • Auto-Brightness adjusts the screen to ambient lighting conditions automatically. For the activation of this feature, users need to go to Settings > General > Accessibility and then go to Display Accommodations and set Auto-Brightness to On.


Poor CellPhone Coverage:

Poor Wi-Fi could be a reason for this, but poor coverage has a far greater impact on battery life because the iPhone is constantly questing for a better signal.


  • If the users are already aware that they would be moving to a poor signal area, users can either keep iPhone on the charge or flick it into Airplane mode. For this, users need to swipe up from the Home screen open Control Center and tap the Airplane mode icon to activate.


  • However, it is also important to remember that while in Airplane mode, users cannot make or receive calls.


Rogue App:

Sometimes a poorly coded app can tear through the battery. In fact, very popular apps such as Facebook or the YouTube might have bugs that cause them to rip through a fully-charged battery in a few hours, even when they are not in use!


  • If battery life starts getting worse suddenly, users might head over to Settings > Battery and take a look at what’s been eating the battery most lately


  • If users would click on the like clock icon next to Last 24 Hours and Last 7 Days, they would get a breakdown of how the apps have been running and here anything with a large amount of background activity is a suspect.


  • The best option is either deleting the app or alternatively head over to Settings> General > Background App Refresh and switch off that app’s ability to refresh in the background.


Lots of Notifications coming to the Lock Screen:

This is not that common, but some individuals are there, who receive endless notifications coming in while their iPhone was locked and thus, causing the display to switch on constantly.


  • If users found out that they are having a barrage of notifications from an app waking up the iPhone a lot, they might as well turn off notifications for that specific app in Settings > Notifications


  • For this, users just need to find the app, tap on it and then disable the Show on Lock Screen.


Finally, by following the above steps, the user would definitely prevent their iPhone batteries from draining.
