Here's What You Need to Know About the iPhone 7 Battery
The battery life of Apple's 2016 flagship smartphone is just one of the many things that separates the iPhone 7 from its predecessor – the iPhone 6s – and it's definitely a change worth mentioning. After all, the amount of maximum energy available to us equals the amount of time we get to spend using our favourite apps, playing games, and listening to music. Aware of the rising demand for more "phone power", the Cupertino giant made the iPhone 7 battery last up to two hours longer than the one found in the iPhone 6s, which means more talk time, standby time, and Internet use for iOS users worldwide.
While that's all fine and dandy, there's a slight problem when it comes to all available Apple smartphones. Namely, none of them have replaceable batteries and once yours gets worn-out (and with time, it will), you won't have a choice but to send it in for a repair. Of course, you can try and replace the battery all by yourself, but if you don't have any experience with such tasks (taking apart your iPhone and messing around with its insides), we'd recommend leaving the process to the professionals. However, even though you can't prevent the demise of your handset's battery, you can try to take better care of it and make it stay in good shape for as long as possible. Here's how.
10 Tips on How to Improve the Battery Life of Your iPhone 7
Like we already mentioned above, nothing lasts forever and neither will your iPhone 7 battery, but there are a couple of neat tips and tricks that can help you take some load off your device's strained battery. For example, you can:
Turn off Location Services in your phone's settings.
Disable Background App Refresh.
Stop your handset from automatically updating its apps (you can update them all on your own).
Keep auto-brightness at the minimum level.
Make sure that your phone locks after 30 seconds or a minute – tops.
Disable Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and mobile data when you don't need them.
Turn off dynamic backgrounds (they look cool, but will drain your battery).
Use the Low Power Mode which shuts down all unnecessary features.
Check Battery Usage and see what's eating at your battery and then shut those programs down.
Listen to music using your headphones and not iPhone's speakers.
In theory, all of these tips sound great, but the truth is that they are a lot harder to follow through in practice, because we use our smartphones for a number of different tasks, on a daily basis. So, if you can't use these ideas to your advantage, consider investing in a portable source of energy for your mobile device.
For an Instant Power Boost, Turn to External Batteries for the iPhone 7
Power banks or external iPhone 7 batteries are a great way for you to have additional energy for your phone at the tips of your fingers, no matter where you are. With a power bank inside your bag you won't ever have to worry about your smartphone running out of juice when you're outside, on vacation, or in a meeting. You can pick your power-boosting accessory based on how much milliamperes per hour it can provide you with (ranging from 2000mAh to 20000mAh) or on the name behind the product – 4smarts, Goobay, Xiaomi, Baseus, Puro, etc. Some external batteries also offer interesting features: solar charging, water resistance, LED flashlights, and even integrated speakers, meaning that you can use them in different conditions and situations.
