The iPhone, as a mobile communication device, is designed to be proactive in the way it delivers updated information to users – specifically with online-based content.
While this function of the iPhone does come as an upside, its downside can be defined in how it, at times, needlessly checks for information, thereby contributing to its battery’s power load.
In enhancing your iPhone’s overall battery life, it pays to be mindful of how its data fetching interval rate is set.
You can start taking control of your iPhones data fetching intervals by looking into your phone’s push notification settings, apart from looking into the data fetching settings of individual apps like Facebook, Twitter and the like.
As simple as managing this aspect of your iPhone’s and installed apps’ settings may sound, taking control of how often (or how limited) your iPhone’s data fetching capabilities are greatly affects its overall power consumption performance rate.
Another “aspect” which you should take the time to look into is to be mindful of where you put your iPhone at home or in the office, taking the time to make sure that it always has cell signal. When an iPhone goes out of cell signal range, it automatically goes on search mode, which, needless to say, consumes a lot of power.
Long story short, apart from taking a proactive approach in controlling how often your iPhone checks for new Facebook updates, emails and the like, take the time to make sure that it doesn’t have to needlessly consume power by searching for lost cell signals and/or Wifi frequencies.
