Every time there is a new upgrade to the existing operating system, there are typical complaints regarding battery life and quick battery drain, and the iOS 15 is no exception. With each subsequent point release since that of iOS 15, there have been even more reports of battery life problems.
Some of the causes of the battery life problems that iOS 15 faces include software bugs, excessive GPS use, and system-demanding games and apps, among other factors. Granted, if a software bug is the reason for your battery life problems, there’s nothing to do until Apple releases an update to resolve it, so that’s out of your hands.
Regardless of the cause, however, there are some helpful actions you can take personally to improve your battery life and reduce hidden factors that may be causing excess drainage. We have prepared this guide to show you just that, so take advantage of the following helpful tips to improve the battery life of your iOS 15 device.
Activate the Low Power Mode
Since the Low Power Mode became available (a few years now), it has been the best setting to activate if the battery life of your device is a problem. Background downloads and other activities are reduced, and the brightness of your screen is reduced more rapidly after inactivity.
When the iPhone’s battery is 20% full, a pop-up asking you to activate Low Power Mode will appear. However, you can do so whenever you want by touching the battery symbol in Control Center or by asking Siri to do so. You may also find it in the Settings app.
- Launch Settings.
- Tap Battery after swiping down.
- Toggle the Low Power Mode setting.
Your iPhone’s battery symbol will become yellow when Low Power Mode is activated, alerting you to its presence. Despite the fact that Low Power Mode automatically switches off once the iPhone is being charged, some users actually choose to leave their iPhones in this state all the time to help their batteries last longer.
When possible, use Wifi
Apple suggests using WiFi whenever feasible to connect to the internet since it consumes less power than a cellular connection and can help extend battery life. For instance, WiFi should be turned on at home or at work to conserve cellular data and prolong battery life.
Manage Apps that Drain your Battery
To ensure that nothing is covertly depleting your phone’s battery without your notice, the iPhone lets you know which apps use the most energy. By launching the Settings app and selecting the Battery option, you can view your battery usage statistics.
You can view charts that show your battery level over the previous 24 hours or up to 10 days, as well as the apps that consumed the most battery life. You can then uninstall any apps you deem to be unnecessary and that appear to be consuming an excessive amount of battery.
You could also limit how frequently you use the apps you do need to save battery use.
Verify your Battery’s Health
An old battery that isn’t performing at its best may be the cause of your battery’s quick drain. These steps will help you determine your battery’s condition:
- Launch the Settings app.
- Tap Battery after swiping down.
- Click on Battery Health
You will find a measurement of the battery’s capacity in relation to when it was new in the Battery Health section under the heading “Maximum Capacity.”
If the capacity is less than 80%, it could be worthwhile to look for a replacement battery. Under the terms of the one-year warranty or AppleCare+, Apple will replace any battery that has less than 80% of its original capacity free of charge.
You should consider enabling Optimized Battery Charging in the Settings app’s Battery Health section to ensure that your iPhone battery lasts longer. The iPhone can learn your charging routine thanks to optimized battery charging, allowing it to wait until you want it to charge past 80%. For instance, if you charge your phone at night, the Optimized Battery Charging setting may keep the iPhone at 80% charge, recharging it just before you wake up to slow down battery aging.
There are several different ways to help the battery life of your iOS 15 device last longer, it just takes a bit of intentionality on your part. Pay attention to the tips we’ve provided for you above, and you’ll be well on your way to achieving better results with your device.
