Thank you for sharing these tips that many people will benefit from.
I appreciate the complement and testimony.
I never fell into the i-phone hype. The fact that you cannot remove the battery was one of the biggest reasons.
You’re advice may be helpful to some, but I’ll stick to android. At least I still have control of my own phone.
Thanks for your comment. The tips does not really requires removing your iPhone battery, however, I believe, iPhone users found it very helpful.
I realize the tip doesnt require you to remove the battery. But the batteries in the iphone are problematic at best. If you have a physical problem with the battery, it must be sent in as you arent allowed to access it
Thats Apple for you, always wants to monopolize all its products. That is why you have to take all precautions to the letter if you make use of their product.
One of these that I’m not sure of is the “update to current iOS.” What have others experienced with this? It seems to me that every time I update my iOS on an older device, battery life gets just a little bit worse.
I guess this could be simply because my device continues to age. And maybe your steps outlined above will help – just implemented a bunch of your suggestions. Thanks!
It happens, the new OS comes with added features unlike the former. So, you need to manually de-activate some of those new features using the tips mentioned above. They won’t tell you that activating those would decrease your battery performance! 🙂

thats good idea, but i like making powerbank for this solution.
