You are probably here because you have the iPhone battery draining issue. We already know that the iPhone has this problem. It can be related to multiple things, such as software issues, or the apps you have on your phone. We are here to tell you how to solve your problem.
First, let’s do a test for the iPhone Battery
We will calculate the battery usage and the standby time. You will know if your Battery has problems or not. Usage time is the time that the iPhone has been used since the last full charge. Apps are running in the background, which may drain your Battery. Standby time is the entire time you have powered your iPhone since the last full charge. This one also includes usage time and sleep time.
For this, go to Settings, to Battery, and tap on it. From there, scroll down to the bottom, and you should find the Usage and Standby features. Write those down on paper. Then you need to turn off your iPhone. Leave it off for about 5 minutes, then turn it back on.
Then you need to go back to Settings, to Battery. Then compare the Usage and the Standby time. Both of them should increase by 1 minute. If there’s more than one minute, it means that you have problems with your Battery. Don’t forget to turn off the Bluetooth.
You need to disconnect all the paring accessories, from third party speakers to Apple Watches. They are using Bluetooth, so all you need to do is to turn it off. In order to do so, go to the control center by swiping from the bottom of the screen. Next to the Wi-Fi icon is the Bluetooth icon. Tap on it. If your Battery now behaves as it is supposed to, then your Battery is okay. Don’t forget to turn the Bluetooth off when you’re not using it.
How to solve iPhone battery draining issues
Turn off your location
Most of the apps use your location. Because they do so, they need more power. The internet connection also drains the battery, and we all know you need that most. Go to Settings, to Privacy to Location Services. You will disable your location by tapping the green button next to “Location Services.”
Your internet connection
The poor internet connection can also drain your Battery. When you open an app that needs an Internet connection, it will keep loading. The app needs more power to do so, and that power comes from the Battery.
Use your cellular data
If you’re not usually doing it, do not take account of this step. Launch the Safari app and type apple.com, then tap on Go. See how fast it goes. If the internet is fast, it should take you less than 5 seconds. If not, you’d better find a Wi-Fi to connect to.
Use your Wi-Fi
Make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi. Launch the Safari app and type apple.com, then tap on Go. See how fast it goes. If it takes more than 10 seconds, try another connection to Wi-Fi. After you find a good Wi-Fi connection, see how the Battery acts.
