With all the fun, useful features and functions available on your iPhone, did you know they can zap battery life even if you’re not using them?
When turned on, but not in use, some functions—like Wi-Fi and Location Services—will continue to look for wireless networks or satellites, which can quickly drain your battery.
Here are four commonly used features to turn off whenever they’re not needed; Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Location Services and the Vibrate function. Turning these off is simple:
1. From the Home screen, touch the Settings icon.
2. Make sure that the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth master controls are turned off.
3. Select Privacy, then Location Services. Turn the master control off.
4. To disable vibration, select Sounds, then make sure “Vibrate on Silent” is turned off as well.
Enjoy more time talking and texting and less time recharging your phone!
