Battery and charging issues are commonly reported problems for iPhone users. People often note that their iPhone does not hold a charge, their battery life significantly decreases, their device overheats while charging or that their device is all around “dead.”
While sometimes a new battery or iPhone may be required, there are a number of factors the average user may want to consider before sending the device in for repair. In an iMore article from September, contributor Georgia explored a few ways to resolve battery life issues with the iPhone 5 and iOS 6.
“Every time Apple releases a new version of iOS or a new iPhone, it seems battery life becomes an issue,” she wrote. “On the positive side, that also means we’re getting really good at troubleshooting it and helping everyone get back to good battery life.”
One good idea to get your battery back to working order again is simply by restarting or resetting your device. In addition, iMore advised users completely drain their iPhone of battery until it shuts down by itself at least once every month. They can then charge it back up fully.
Users can also try to restore their iPhone to factory settings. While this may be a frustrating option due to losing saved data, it can sometimes make your battery life better than ever before, iMore noted.
