iOS 7 Battery Life Improvement

root's picture

I have recently updated to IOS7 and the next surprise (after neat colors and shiny effects) was the battery drain.

Well, something must be done and you can mostly without jailbreak. I will add other tips once the jailbreak is released.

So here we go:

1. Turn off motion and parallax:

Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Reduce Motion –> ON

2. Do not use dynamic background:

Settings -> Wallpapers & Brightness -> Choose Wallpaper -> Stills

3. Disable background apps updates:

Settings -> General -> Background App Refresh –> OFF

4. Turn off auto app updates:

Settings -> iTunes & App Store -> Automatic Downloads -> Updates –> OFF

5. Disable location services:

Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services -> OFF everything that you don’t use

6. Turn off frequent locations:

Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services -> System Services -> Frequent Locations –> OFF

7. Quit any apps you do not use from the background:

Double Tap the home button and swipe up anything you do not need.

8. Turn Down Display Brightness:

Swipe up from the bottom of the screen and adjust it accordingly.

9. Turn Off Unnecessary Notifications & Push:

Settings -> Notifications -> For each unnecessary application choose “None”

10. Disable Mail Push and Set Fetch to Manual:

Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Fetch New Data -> Push -> OFF and Fetch -> Manually

11. Turn off Bluetooth if not needed:

Swipe up from the bottom of the screen and turn it off from there.

12. Turn off Wifi if not needed:

Swipe up from the bottom of the screen and turn it off from there.

13. Turn Off 3G if you do not use it:

Settings -> Cellular -> Enable 3G -> OFF

14. Turn LTE off if you do not use it:

Settings -> General -> Cellular -> Enable LTE -> OFF
