How to optimize iPhone and iPad battery

In short

Let's go deeper

Ah, technology and its whims! Who hasn't found themselves with an iPhone running at 5% battery just when they need it most?

Just in those moments, I realize how essential it is to know how to best manage the charge of our Apple devices.

Today I propose a journey to discover the best - and trivial - tricks to extend the life of your battery and, why not, some suggestions on a faithful traveling companion: the powerbank.

Always update, update anyway

Let's start with the basics: keep your device updated. It seems trivial, right?

But how many times have we postponed that software update, thinking 'I'll do it tomorrow'?

Apple doesn't joke when it releases updates that improve the energy efficiency of devices. So, don't be lazy: Settings > General > Software Update And off you go, to download!

Screen brightness!

Screen brightness is our number one enemy when it comes to battery consumption. By reducing it, not only do you save energy, but your eyes will thank you after long sessions in front of the screen.

And don't forget the dark backgrounds on OLED; they are a lifesaver for the battery because they completely turn off the screen's pixels.

Who would have thought that a small change of 'look' could make a difference?

Background apps: friends or foes?

Let's face it, we often forget about those apps open in the background that consume battery without us realizing it.

A quick journey into Settings > General > Background app update and you can say goodbye to those little energy vampires.

Who needs constant updates to the weather app?

The energy saving mode: a lifesaver

When your iPhone alerts you that your battery is at 20%, this is not the time to ignore it.

Activate energy saving mode and you'll see your device survive long enough to take you home safely.

Find this valuable option in Settings > Battery.

In addition, thanks to the iPhone Commands app, you can automate the activation of energy savings based on the battery percentage, for example I set it when the battery reaches 40%.

Monitor battery usage

iOS allows you to be real energy detectives.

Find out in Settings > Battery to find out which apps are sucking the most life out of your device.

Perhaps you will discover that the main problem with battery consumption is you with your 6 hours of reels and videos on Instagram and TikTok!

Beware of the heat

Apple devices don't like freezing cold or scorching heat.

Keep iPhone and iPad away from thermal extremes if you care about their health (and yours), in summer on the beach at 50° it is normal for the iPhone to discharge quickly, for this reason it is always useful to carry a nice powerbank with you.

The powerbank: a modern hero

After all this advice, sometimes what is needed is simply more energy.

This is where the powerbank comes in.

Whether you are urban adventurers or forest explorers, a good powerbank can be your best ally. There are various types and capacities, so choose the one that best suits your daily adventures.
