How to maintain 100 percent of iPhone battery health, according to Apple

Apple generally offers good battery life with its devices, be it iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch or other models. However, in the past, Apple has been accused of intentionally slowing down iPhone models with old batteries and recently paid $ 113 million (approximately Rs 819 million) to settle the BatteryGate case. While Apple believes this was to preserve battery health during long-term use, it has since introduced performance and battery management features to users and shared tips and recommendations for maintaining battery health. Some of the general practices that Apple recommends include updating the latest software, avoiding high ambient temperatures, removing certain cases while charging, and storing devices in a medium-charge state when stored for long periods.

Apple has a page on their website detailing how to maximize your iPhone’s battery life and lifespan. But, of course, the first thing is to keep it up to date with the latest software.

Update your iPhone

  1. On your iPhone, go to Settings.
  2. You should see the update available here. If you see an update, tap on it and your iPhone will start updating. Make sure you have enough battery left.
  3. Alternatively, you can connect your iPhone to your computer and update it with the latest version of iTunes.

You can also preserve battery life by adjusting the screen brightness and using a Wi-Fi connection whenever possible. For example, you can dim the brightness of your iPhone screen or turn on automatic brightness.

Dim the screen brightness, turn on automatic brightness

  1. Open control centre.
  2. Drag the brightness slider to the bottom.
  3. To activate automatic brightness, go to Settings.

  5. Tap on Accessibility.
  6. Tap on Screen adaptations.
  7. Set Auto-Brightness to On.

Enable Low Power Mode

iPhone users can also enable low power mode when it starts to go down. For example, if the battery drops to 20 per cent, you will receive a notification, and the low-power mode can be activated with a touch. To manually activate low power mode:

  1. To go Settings.
  2. Scroll down and tap Drums.
  3. Change Low Power Mode to On.
