While the iPhone may have a lot of cool features, there’s no getting away from the less-than-stellar battery life.
If you’re someone who uses your phone throughout the day, chances are that you’re constantly battling against that low Battery sign… but there’s one little trick that could help improve the situation.
According to Mashable, deleting just one app from your iPhone could give you up to 20 per cent more battery life.
Journalists at Android Central and The Guardian have carried out trials in recent weeks in which they deleted the Facebook app from both iPhone and Android and accessed the social media network through their browser instead.
In both cases, they found that battery life increased by 15-20% and there was also an added bonus of up to 500mb in available storage on the device.
In the case of The Guardian, the tester kept the Facebook Messenger app so you can still contact your friends while saving that battery.
Snapchat is also believed to be a major drain on power but it is not currently possible to access this through a web browser.
Other tips to get more action out of your battery include turning down the brightness to below 50%, setting the time that your screen goes to ‘sleep’ to under 15 seconds and examining your battery settings (on Android) to see which apps are draining the most energy.
It also pays to doublecheck that Bluetooth, NFC and GPS are turned off!
