Getting the Most Out of Your iPhone Battery
There is nothing more frustrating than a "favorite gizmo" whose battery does not last long, even if this "favorite gizmo" of yours is the iPhone. And while some people find that the battery on the iPhone lasts just fine, others find that this is not the case for them at all! And so, the question that must be explored is this: Why do some people get good life out of their iPhone battery, while others do not? Firstly, you must keep in mind the fact that - of course - the efficiency of a battery of any kind will depend largely upon usage. If you use the phone a lot throughout the day, your battery will last less time than it will if you only pick the phone up every so often. Even if you use the phone all the time, however, there are some things you can do to optimize battery life. The single biggest thing you can do to optimize the battery life of your iPhone is really quite simple: lower the brightness on your screen! You should aim to keep your screen as dim as you can, as nothing will drain your battery more quickly than a really bright screen. This might seem like a nuisance at first, but as you keep your phone dim for a few days, you will be surprised to find how quickly you get used to it. Your battery life also varies depending on more than just usage, but on the way you use your phone as well! When you access the internet using 3G, you are actually using a lot more battery than you do when you access the internet using a wireless network. Anytime you can access the internet using wireless, do so, and it will stretch out the life of your battery much longer than you would otherwise experience. And one of the biggest things people fail to do - as easy as it is to do - is to turn off the screen when the phone is not in use! It is not difficult to join that group of people who say their iPhone battery works just fine; all you have to do is follow these few simple tips.
