But before you find yourself stuck without a cord, available outlet or portable charger, you may want to consider taking a more proactive approach to preserve battery life.Follow @newslexpoint
Here are 7 ways you could be draining your iPhone ‘s battery without even knowing it:
1. Plugging your iPhone into a computer that’s not active
When you’ve misplaced your charging block, plugging into a computer seems like an obvious alternative. But if your device is connected to a computer that’s turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, that can cause problems. To avoid battery drain, make sure your computer is plugged in and powered on while charging.
2. Exposing your phone to extreme temperatures
Too hot: Avoid exposing your iPhone to temperatures higher than 95° F. When your phone is exposed to this kind of heat it can cause permanent damage to battery capacity; your battery won’t power as long on a given charge, Apple warns.
3. Using the Facebook app
If you notice your phone battery draining too quickly, the Facebook app may be to blame. In February, The Guardian tested out the impact the popular app has on a phone’s battery. The study discovered that removing the Facebook app from an iPhone saved up to 15 percent of the phone’s battery life. Here’s a suggestion: Instead of surfing Facebook via the app, try using the mobile version on your phone’s browser instead.
