With the vast technologies today, Apple is one of the top and leading brands and with its newest release, people looked forward for this latest and innovative smartphone. Tagged as “The Most Amazing iPhone Yet”, iPhone 4s carries high-end and unique attributes that makes it different from its predecessor.
Some of the well known features are the 8MP camera with additional lens that produce almost 30% better clarity, 26% better white balance and better color accuracy. Another is the famous Siri, which is an exclusive feature on iPhone 4s. It can respond to commands, questions and inquiries and you can ask to perform specific tasks such as sending message or creating reminders. This somehow serves as your assistant, which makes certain tasks are easier for the user.
Hence, despite of the popularity of the newest product of Apple Inc., there were some reviews that the battery life of iPhone 4s is way different from its predecessor. iPhone is known to have the best battery life but with this newest release, many users noticed how fast the battery drains. Apple is not yet releasing any updates that will extend the battery life but there are workarounds that users can do to solve the current issue.
First, the latest OS has a multitasking feature, which means that every application you open will keep on running until you completely close it. For you to be able to do that, press your home button twice until you see the following icons or applications opened. Touch any of the icons and tap the negative sign that you will see for all the applications that you are not using.
Second is to optimize your settings. There are some settings that can make your batteries drain faster. For instance, it is advisable to minimize the use of location services. To disable this, go to Settings and then turn off location services.
Another thing is to turn off push notifications and Wi-Fi if not needed as this will also help extend your battery life. To disable this, go to Settings, Notifications then turn it off. The same goes with your Wi-Fi. Just go to Setting, Wi-Fi then turn it off.
Likewise, it is best to turn off your Bluetooth as it reduces battery since it keeps on searching other devices once turned on. To disable your Bluetooth, go to Settings, General, Bluetooth and then turn off.
You can also extend your batter life by adjusting the brightness. Turn on auto-brightness as well so it will automatically adjust depending on your surrounding. Just go to Settings, Brightness and drag the slider to adjust.
Use your iPhone as often as possible. iPhone has lithium-based battery so it is important to keep the electrons moving. This will extend your battery life and you should make sure to completely drain and fully charge your battery even once a month for proper maintenance.
If this workarounds won’t work for you, the best thing to do is to restore your iPhone to its original settings. It is possible that there are other applications that are running even without you noticing it. And by restoring your iPhone, things will get back to normal and you will have a better battery life.
