    Whether you are using an old iPhone that struggles to last the whole day on a single charge or the latest flagship iPhone 13 with its fancy battery saving features, ultimately, your phone's battery health and longevity lies in your hands. But keeping your phone battery healthy in the long run is much more complicated. Needless to say, the longer you can extend your phone's “Battery lifespan”, the better it will be for you, saving time, effort and money.

    The idea is to make sure you don't keep committing some common mistakes on a daily basis as these can slowly destroy the iPhone battery. Apple has asked its users to avoid making some mistakes and to follow these tips to keep their iPhone battery life healthy. Know what you should not do.

    iPhone users should AVOID these mistakes

    • Apple says that your iPhone should be kept away from extreme temperatures. You should avoid exposing your device to ambient temperatures higher than 35° C which can permanently damage battery capacity.
    • Avoid keeping your iPhone with cases during battery charging. Certain cases may trap excess heat, which can affect battery capacity.
    • DON'T ever charge your iPhone fully! The 100 percent battery capacity on your phone may seem relaxing, but Apple suggests not charging it fully. At the same time, you should make sure you do not discharge battery to zero either. This can bring the battery into a deep discharge state, which renders it incapable of holding a charge.

    iPhone battery TIPS that you should follow

    • Always make sure your iPhone is using the latest version of iOS. If not, then Go to Settings > General and then find the Software Update to check the latest updates.
    • Keep a check on your Settings to optimise the iPhone's battery. Ensure to dim the screen light or turn on Auto-Brightness to extend battery life. You can activate it via Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations and then set Auto-Brightness. Just turn this on.
    • Also, use Wi-Fi connection more often. Apple suggests that a Wi‑Fi connection uses less power than a cellular network. So, it's better to keep your Wi-Fi on at all times.
    • Low Power Mode is here to help you. It is an easy way to extend the battery life of your iPhone when it starts to get low on power. It reduces display brightness, optimises device performance and minimises system animations when your iPhone has low battery life.
    • Keep a check on your battery usage pattern. You just need to access the Battery section from Settings, which will show you the proportion of your battery used by each app.
