Keeping our iPhones alive

By Sophie

There must be a way to extend an iPhone's battery life. It's ridiculous how quickly the battery drains. Either that or there should be more free and accessible ways to charge up when out and about. Any ideas?

What's this?

    I had the same problem ,I had to turn of my location settings and it didn’t half make a difference my battery lasted a lot longer also certain apps you download can drain your battery

    Not just for iPhones that is but a really small solar panel on the back would be amazing! Those things already exist but just for iPhones and are a bit chunky…

    I’m sorry but iPhones are rubbish, case in point with this idea! If I had just 50p for every time I’ve heard of some kind of problem or other with an iPhone I’d be totes loaded! You’re probably a fangirl who is going to be gutted when the iPhone 5 comes out with it’s potential new 19-pin connector, meaning you’ll either have to replace everything you currently plug into your phone/plug your phone into or pay Apple for some kind of converter to plug something in or dock your iPhone, etc.

    Great idea, but not just for iPhones, all apple products… e.g. iPod Touches and Samsung Galaxies
    Their battery always go really quickly!
    They’re great and all, but rubbish battery life, I thought maybe a Case which charges your iPhone etc…
    Thanks =-D

    just build in solar panels into the back of the phone case but blend them in so no one can see it or have them on the bevel edges there is a phone coming out or something where they have put them under the screen so it can be charged when you get phone out and no one knows its there

    Why not use a programme to extend battery life – I have an iphone 3GS which I use constantly but as yet not had any problems with the battery.

    The battery app advises me that I am running a perfect charging system. Like the solar panel idea, have seen hard cases that have this but only for the four series.

    increase battery life by doing the following – double tap home button and review all the apps you have permanently running in the background and close some (all) of them by holding down on any of them, you will then get a little minus sign. You can then tap each one in turn to close it / switch it off ( Note it does not delete them as my partner thought)- you might be surprised at the number of things always on that you just don’t need – turn off Bluetooth also unless you use it of course.
