If you have transitioned from the original iPhone to the following later units such as the 4S, you have likely had some issues with your phone. What can you do to extend the battery life of your phone?
If you were one of those who tried to restore a backup of your iPhone 3 or iPhone 4 to an iPhone 4S, you certainly noticed some serious performance issues. Why? Because Apple has a software glitch that won’t allow you to restore your data and achieve normal power performance. Search on the web and you will find people talking about it. AINEO engineers joked that the iPhone 4S was given the name because its battery life is only four hours.
To remedy the situation, you must set up your iPhone 4S as a new device and reinstall each application from the App Store to it. If you sign in with the same account, you will not be billed to reinstall, you just may have to restore data from your computer back to your smartphone. We had that issue with applications such as Olivetree’s Reader software, Kindle for iPhone, Splash Id, The Economist and many others. You will also have to go through and set up each one of your email accounts again.
Once you have done this, your battery performance will change dramatically—and your phone won’t be hotter than a pistol in your pocket. You’ll get from four hours on a flat battery (without using the device) to a full day of normal use.
To further to extend the battery life of your phone, here are some other suggestions we have tested:
-Reset Network Settings: Tap on “Settings” > Reset > Reset Network Settings
-Disable Bluetooth: Settings > General > Bluetooth > “OFF”
-Disable unwanted Notifications & apps: Settings > Notifications > Select OFF for anything you don’t need
-Disable Location Service: Settings > Location Services > Disable selectively for services you don’t use
-Disable Timezone Adjustment: Tap on “Settings” > “Location Services” > ‘System Services’ > Setting Time Zone to OFF
-Disable Ping: Settings > General > Restrictions > Enable Restrictions > Ping > OFF
-Disable Diagnostic & Usage Reports: Tap on “Settings” > General > About > Diagnostic & Usage > Don’t Send
-Disable email accounts by heading to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Account Name > Delete Account.
-Once done, reset network settings (the first tip up there), then reboot your device and restore your accounts from Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account.
