[vicsireland] Re: IPhone battery life

Another help is to switch off features such as GPS which are constantly draining the battery unless needed.

Be sure the phone talks balk to you.  Otherwise it is not a 4S.

Good Morning,

Tony

Hi Folks. If one were to turn the screen curtain off , if visually impaired, or leave it off when fully blind, an incredible battery life would be had. We tend to learn where things are located such as the keys on the phone or key-ststrokes to make.

If there if any guide I could give from trom hearing people telling me I was holding a remote control upside down, search for 4S shaped somewhat oblong.

Sincerely,

Anthony G Roche

Hi Sabrina

Can I check which iPhone you are using, if you are using the 4S there are some known battery issues, with this phone which are expected to be fixed in an upgrade to the operating system.

Some people are only getting 20 hours out of the phone with each charge.

Hi Mairead,

The only apps on my phone so far are tune in radio and twitter so maybe they are not actually constantly running in the background I am seeing them when in app switcher mode alright but when I go in to these apps there are no options to stop them running or anything like that. The only "stop button" I can locate is if I am actually streaming a station and I want to stop listening to it.

So perhaps, it was "the overuse" of the phone that was causing my battery to drain over the past few days or so.

Sabrina

Hi Sabrina,
I have figured out from Joan Anns instructions how to stop apps from running in the background and delete them. It just takes a bit of practicing but it is difficult to make these instructions any clearer. It is trial and error and a few times I ended up moving apps instead of deleting them.

Since the other night I uninstalled Viber and once I gave my phone a full charge using the plug charger and made the following changes my battery life went back to normal again.

The minute I unplugged it I turned off the Wifi by going in to settings, scrooled down to Wifi and double tapped on it.
Then I navigated to Wifi on and double tapped on it.
Then I navigated up the screen and selected Wifi off.  .
Then I went back to settings, scrooled to 3G and turned it on.
Then I went back to settings and turned on Wifi and then went back to settings and turned off 3G.

In summary the steps I follow are:
Turn off Wifi, turn on 3G, turn on Wifi and turn off 3G. If they aren't followed in this order it doesn't work for me.

Usually when I charge the phone from the computer I have to do these steps, otherwise the useage under settings and general ends up being the same as the stand by time even if you weren't using the phone all this time. I usually get around 3 days out of my battery. I am using the iPhone 3GS so these instructions mightn't work for the newer versions of the iPhone or some of the options might be in different places. Also when I install most apps I don't allow notifications as I find it drains the battery as well but you can't use Viber with the notifications being on which is really annoying as it is a brilliant app.

Other tips that will help save battery:
When you buy an iPhone first usually 3G and bluetooth are turned on by default. I always turn these off and only turn them on when I am using them, otherwise if you go in to settings, general, useage and stand by the useage and stand by will be the same which shouldn't be the case.

Hope this helps.

Regards
Mairead

Hi All,

This is coming in on a question Mairead had the other day about
turning off/deleting apps ..

I am having to charge the phone every day or so is this pretty normal?
I am just wondering if I have an app on in the background that is
draining the battery?

Joanann, you were saying that if you locate the app double tap on it
and with another finger turn the app off? When in app switcher I can
locate
the
apps running and can double tap on them fine but not understanding the
next
step

If you could give instructions again or if someone else could?

Thanks much.

Sabrina
