THERE’S an ultra easy way to prolong the battery life of your iPhone.
People are so used to swiftly exiting annoying pop ups online, that many accidentally make an anti-battery-saving mistake.
When your Apple iPhone is about to drop below 20% and 10% charge, an automatic pop up will arrive on your screen asking you whether you would like the device to enter Low Power Mode.
In Low Power Mode, your iPhone will put certain behind-the-scenes tasks, such as updating apps, on the backburner, in an effort to conserve power.
However, if you accidentally tap the Cancel button out of habit – fear not.
You can manually turn on Low Power Mode, not matter what level of charge your device is on.
It is particularly handy when you know your phone battery has got to last you a whole day without access to a power point or portable charger.
You can switch on Low Power Mode before the phone has even dipped below 75%.
Just head to Settings > Battery > Low Power Mode.
The battery icon will turn amber when you have successfully switched on the power-saving feature.
Replacing your iPhone battery
If your iPhone’s battery is consistently causing you low-power pain, then you can get it replaced.
But be quick, because Apple is hiking the cost to replace the batteries in older iPhone models from 1 March.
The sneaky price rise of by $20/ £20 will hit millions of customers in the UK and the US.
The move will see the cost of bolstering iPhone 13, iPhone 12, iPhone 11, and iPhone X batteries jump from $69 (£58) to $89 (£75) in a matter of weeks.
Those with models from the iPhone 14 line-up will be unaffected, as Apple already charges its latest customers $99 (£83) for battery replacements on its newest products.
It is usually recommended that users get their batteries replaced when the maximum battery capacity hits 80%.
You can check the health of your battery at any time by going into Settings > Battery > Battery Health.
