The First and the Big one is Push e-mail:
Most of us have more than one e-mail accounts, and the phone checks each of them more than 100 times/day (you can multiple 100 times no. of your e-mail account, to get the total checking), so he suggested to turn off the â€œPushâ€ feature, and set it to Manually instead. How? Ok, simply (in Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars->Fetch New Data), then your iPhone checks for e-mail only when you actually open the e-mail app. Your battery goes a lot farther.
The Second one is GPS checks:
I don’t know if most of us know the real no. of apps using our phone’s location only to know where we are !!. Any way to know: In Settings ->General->Location Services, youâ€™ll see a list of all the apps on your phone that are using your phoneâ€™s location feature to know where you are. The apps are:
- Combination of GPS
- Cell-tower triangulation
- Wi-Fi hotspot triangulation
I know some of you will say they are 3 apps only, No please don’t say, it was an examples only and they reach 12 or more apps, and all of them use battery power although many didnâ€™t really need to be on, So please turned most of them off.
The third is Notifications:
Similarly, in Settings -> Notifications, you see a list of apps that are allowed to display pop-up notifications (those blue text bubbles that look like text messages). To do that, they have to monitor whatâ€™s going on with your phone â€” and that takes juice. Turn off the ones you donâ€™t really need.
The last is Background apps:
Why you had a huge number of apps open? Please don’t answer because I don’t care but you have to know that they are in using battery power, and Apple was criticized when it introduced â€œmultitaskingâ€ in the latest iPhone software, precisely because apps donâ€™t actually keep operating in the background. Only a few sanctioned features keep running in the background (Internet radio playback and GPS tracking, for example). So quit all of the apps that were still open. (To do that, double-press the Home button to open the multitasking app switcher. Hold your finger down on any icon until they all start wiggling. Tap the little X close boxes to manually quit open apps.)
