Unfortunately, the battery life is short with iOS 14. But with a few tricks you can make your iPhone and iPad last longer.
Extend iOS 14 battery life: These are your options
If you want to extend the battery life of your iOS 14 iPhone or iPad, it is important to use as few applications in the background as possible.
How to save battery on your phone
- Deactivate Bluetooth
If Bluetooth is activated, it constantly searches for other devices to connect to. This drains battery.
- Remove Widgets
Even if widgets are very fancy. They consume a lot of battery. This is especially true for widgets that collect data in the background. So delete all unused widgets.
- Deactivate Mobile Data if you have access to Wi-Fi
Because these also constantly consume power and also data volume.
- Disable Notifications
Because receiving a new message turns the screen on briefly, which consumes unnecessary power. Under “Settings” and “Notifications” You can also individually set which app is allowed to send you a message.
- Remove unused Apps
Because they consume computing power and thus battery even when inactive.
- Disable Updates
Block background updates and automatic updates under “Settings” “General” “Software Update”. It prevents the apps from updating themselves without your knowledge and thus using computing power. You can also download updates manually, this way you will save energy that your smartphone or iPad consumes while constantly checking for updates.
- Turn off the “Rise to Wake” Feature
Because for this your device consumes energy to turn on the screen when you lift the iPhone.
