3. Restriction on background refreshing

Background refresh is used by all types of apps to ensure that they are up to date and ready to use whenever you access them.

For instance – In the background, Email applications are downloading new mails, Instagram is refreshing the feed, and the news apps are displaying the most recent headlines.

This background refresh of apps merely saves you a few seconds, when you open the app. As you’ll find that your feed is already updated even before you launch the application. But, not everyone needs this kind of auto background refreshing. Also, since it will take only a second to load the feed when you open the app, it’s better to turn this feature off.

  • Go to the Settings app on your iPhone.
  • Tap on General.

4. Auto-Lock and Screen Brightness

Setting auto-lock time to the lowest i.e. 30 seconds may help you add more minutes. Additionally, you can also use manual brightness and keep the brightness to low in indoor conditions. However, do note that iPhone’s auto-brightness is best for the overall battery of the device since iOS has its own optimization that works like magic.

  • Go to the Settings app on your iPhone.
  • Look for Display & Brightness.
