    Smartphones have a nasty habit of dropping dead just when you need them most. So, if you are looking to juice up yours at the speed of light, then just do this. Charging your phone is usually a straightforward task, but there are times when you don't have much time. Older iPhones take longer than usual to get charged, as the battery naturally ages with continuous use. However, these simple and easy tips can help you to charge your iPhone battery faster.

    iPhone tips and tricks: Charge your iPhone faster with these simple hacks

    Use a fast charger or MagSafe charger

    The quickest and simplest way to charge your iPhone is using a fast charger i.e, 20W power adapter with a USB-C to Lightning cable. You can fast-charge your phone from 0% up to around 50% battery in about 30 minutes. Though Apple no longer provides power adapters, you can use other compatible fast-charging power bricks of at least 20W.

    You can also use a MagSafe charger to charge your device while on the go.

    Avoid using your iPhone while it's charging

    If you want your iPhone to charge quickly, avoid streaming videos or playing mobile games or surfing the internet while charging your iPhone. You can also turn your phone off while you're charging it or put it on Airplane mode. The phone still works in the background even if the screen is off as it keeps refreshing applications, and sending out notifications, hence switching it off is the best option.

    Use Low Power Mode, Dark Mode and turn down the brightness setting

    If you don't want to switch off your iPhone, you can simply use low power mode or dark mode or turn down the brightness to reduce the battery consumption.

    Disable the optimized battery charging setting

    Apple has a built-in tool that can prevent your iPhone battery from draining faster as well as charge faster. All you have to do is go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health and toggle off Optimized Battery Charging to turn off this feature.
