How to save Battery life in ios 7 in your iPhone 5s/5c,5,4s,4 iPad mini, iPad 2,3,4 and iPod touch 5th gen

Written by
It’s a situation we seem to find ourselves in with each iOS update,
yet we always seem to be surprised when it happens. Alas, it seems that iOS 7
has left many of us with the same battery problems that plagued almost
every other big point-0 release of the operating system that powers the
iPhone and iPad.
Anyone with a long memory will remember that we had your back
when iOS 5 was causing chaos with iPhone 4S batteries a couple of years
ago, and with iPhones the world over seemingly unable to hold a charge
as long as they used to, we thought it might be time to offer one or two
tips on trying to eek as many hours out of a charge as possible.
So, without further ado, let’s get started turning things off…
As with all the other times we’ve found ourselves in the situation of
trying to eek every last drop of battery life out of an iOS device,
we’re left with two options. The first is to sit back and wait, charger
in hand, while someone in Cupertino gets around to fixing whatever the
issue is and releases an update. The second option, and our preferred
one, is to go on a hunt for whatever might be draining the juice so
quickly and promptly turn it off with extreme prejudice. With there
actually being no guarantee that the issue is iOS itself, we’ll go with
the second option for now.
We’ve put together a few tips to help you improved battery life on iOS 7.

The parallax effect

 

It may be one of the more striking parts of the iOS Lock and Home
screen experiences, but the faux-3D experience that iOS 7 provides can,
and no doubt does come at the expense of battery life. Making everything
look like it’s moving around in 3D space isn’t something that comes
cheap when it comes to clock cycles, and that means battery life is
going to be affected. If you’re really serious about getting close to
iOS 6 levels of battery longevity then you’ll want to get this turned
off pronto.
You’ll find the switch for the parallax effect is hidden in Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion.

Background App Refreshes

 

 

This is a real shame as far as we’re concerned, but we can’t help but
think that the new background refreshing that iOS 7 enables is actually
the biggest reason that some of us aren’t getting far past lunch time
without having to dash to a charging outlet for fear of running out of
juice.
One of our favorite promises from iOS 7 is the fact that we won’t
need to keep opening our apps in order to let them refresh. OmniFocus 2
for example manages to keep up with its syncing duties in the
background, even when it’s not running. That’s an awesome thing,
especially in a to-do manager that syncs with multiple devices. The
problem is, this surely has to come with its own battery draining
complications. If battery is super important to you, then turning off
the various background refreshing options has to be a good idea. Even if
it makes iOS 7 less awesome in the process.
You can turn Background App Refresh off altogether of for specific
applications in Settings > General > Background App Refresh.

 

Automatic App Updates

Just like the background refreshes, stopping iOS 7 from updating apps
on the fly surely has to mean that a charge will last longer. It’s so
obvious we were going to leave it out of this list, but one person’s
obvious is another mystery, so it’s here.
You can turn this off in Settings > iTunes & App Store > Automatic Downloads.

 

 Location, Location, Location

 

Ahh, location tracking. If you’re the kind of person that likes to
sleep in a tinfoil hat or likes to encrypt everything from emails to
your grocery list, then the chances are you’ve already turned the
location tracking parts of iOS 7 off. If not, then doing so should stop
both the operating system and apps from accessing the Wi-Fi and GPS
chips to get your location, thus saving power. It’ll also mean that the
NSA won’t know when you’re bunking off work early, which is nice.
You can turn off all or some Location Services in Settings > Privacy > Location Services.
At the very least, go to Location Services in Settings > Privacy
> Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations >
Off.

Everything else

There are plenty of other little things that you can do to try and
prolong your battery life. Disabling auto-brightness, turning the
brightness down, force quitting games as soon as you’re finished playing
them and similar generalities will help chip away at the iOS 7 battery
life issue that some of us currently find ourselves in the midst of. At
the moment we’re not sure that any one fix is available, so trying a few
of these suggestions in unison is our best advice at this time.
However, we do have a hunch.
Some of the iDB team have been using the iOS 7 betas since the first
version was released after WWDC, and we’ve never witnessed battery life
like we are experiencing right now. Even that first beta was
considerably kinder to the old battery than this current release, so we
have a sneaky suspicion that the issue isn’t with iOS at all. We think
it might be with one of the apps that has had an iOS 7 shakeup over the
last few days.
The talk on the internet is that the Facebook update is particularly
hard on battery life, and until we know what Mark Zuckerberg’s cronies
have got the app doing in the background we’ll just have to see how
things pan out. We’d certainly be interested to hear if people are
suffering battery problems without having Facebook installed and vice-versa, so let us know below. Of course, with Apple won’t let your downgrade to iOS 6.1.4, there’s no going back no matter how bad battery life gets.
Obviously iOS 7 is considerably different to previous versions, and
some of its new features are bound to eat into our battery life. As
great as some of the multitasking features are though, we’d still like
to be able to have a battery last long enough as to make the thing
useful. With that in mind, we’ll be trying our hardest to find a
solution. If you find it first, be sure to let us know!
