Some owners of the new iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus are interested in knowing why their battery drains quickly. Most of the time, battery drain issues are as a result of apps that have been installed on your iPhone device and sometimes software bugs can also cause the issue. I’ll explain some ways below that you can use to solve a fast battery drain on your smartphone.
Deactivate Or Monitor Background Sync
Even though you are not using some apps, they can still be running in the background, and this will also consume your battery. The most effective way of fixing this is by making sure that you close any app that you are not currently using on your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. Deactivating background sync for social media apps like Facebook will drastically improve battery life of your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus.
Deactivate LTE, Location, Bluetooth features
Making use of the internet to track locations and other features like the LTE internet and the Bluetooth feature can also drain your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus battery. There are times when you will need these services, and there are other times when these services become unnecessary. You can deactivate them when you are not using them to improve your battery life. If you are interested in deactivating your Location which is also called GPS, you can just activate the power saving mode. This will make sure that your smartphone only wakes up when you need it. Another feature that greatly consumes your battery is the Bluetooth feature.
Activating the Low Power Mode on iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
There is a feature that comes with the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus called the ‘Low Power Mode’ that greatly helps in improving your device battery life. This feature has options which include disabling background data; it can also limit your processor performance by switching off your GPS and switching off your device button lights. You are allowed to activate this mode manually, or it can be enabled automatically. You can make use of the tips below to understand how you can activate the ‘Low Power Mode’ feature.
- Switch on the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus
- Click on the Settings app
- Click on Battery
- Move the Low Power Mode toggle to ON.
Deactivate your Wi-Fi settings
Another feature that brains the battery quickly is the Wi-Fi on your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus if you leave it ON all day. I will suggest that you always switch off your Wi-Fi when not in use to conserve your battery life. Besides, when your smartphone is connected 4G/LTE connection, you can deactivate your Wi-Fi because you don’t need it to browse the internet on your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus.
Reducing the Tethering feature
You can also reduce the amount of tethering you carry out with your device. Using the tethering feature to connect your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus to other devices is an effective feature but unfortunately as cool as it sounds, it also consumes a lot of your battery. You can reduce the time you use the tethering feature on your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus or you can completely deactivate it.
