There is only one truly universal thing connecting all of humanity: Our cell phones don't last as long as we'd like them to. No matter who you are, it is likely that by the end of the day you're scrambling to plug your phone into an outlet to keep it from dying. Even the nicest, newest phones eventually succumb to problems with battery life and gradually lose the ability to hold a charge. In order to deal with this problem and help your mobile life last longer, follow these iPhone 5c battery life tips:
Power use reduction
By far, the easiest way to improve battery life is to reduce the power that they use. Go through applications on your phone under Settings, then Notifications, in order to set all non-essential apps to silent mode. Any notification that activates the backlight display on your phone will start draining battery life, so the sooner you can plug those leaks, the better. Similarly, is is important to disable automatic application updates, according to ZDNet. Your phone chooses when to update applications, and it will automatically do this whenever you're connected to a Wi-Fi or cellular network. Updating applications is a resource-intensive process, and when the iPhone is allowed to do this unprompted it can suddenly leave you stranded without power.
Maintaining your battery
In addition to the above tasks, it is important to make sure that your battery remains in good shape. The easiest way to ensure this is to run the battery down to zero percent life at least once per month. Because of the way that lithium-based batteries work, this allows it to retain a larger charge than it would be able to otherwise. Most guides for iPhone 5c battery life tips will mention this, including the one over at iPhone Hacks.
If your battery holds a very low charge, you may need to have it replaced. Taking the battery out of an iPhone 5c can be very difficult for those without the tools or training to do so, and it can be expensive to have it replaced by people at the Apple store. Instead, contact us here at iResQ and we'll replace your battery for you at far less cost to you. With a replacement battery, the natural erosion of charge capacity that happens in all iPhones can be fixed and you'll have a longer-lasting phone.
