How can I extend the life of my iPhone battery?




Recently, the Internet appears more and more reports that the iPhone’s battery wears out quickly – because of this, Apple even reduced the performance of older smartphones. Often, the producer is blamed for everything, but the problem lies not only in wear, but also in non-compliance with simple operational rules.

Many users complain that after several months of operation, the iPhone’s battery loses its capacity by a third, while most refer to the indications of special applications for measuring performance.

First of all, do not rely on programs in the App Store , which “can measure” the wear of the battery. They are not licensed by Apple itself, and, therefore, most of them provide inaccurate information. You can check the battery only by connecting it directly to special equipment. Under normal use for a year, the battery loses about 15-20% of its capacity, while more intensive – up to 50%.

In most cases, the fault of such wear and tear are:

Non-original or uncertified accessories;
Regular charging iPhone in the car;
“Raskachka” battery (discharge to 0% and subsequent charging to 100%) – with recommended constant indicators of the level of charge of at least 40%.
Of course, there is not always an opportunity to follow the recommendations listed: the iPhone in the car periodically has to be recharged, and the non-original accessories are sometimes issued for genuine ones. Therefore sooner or later the battery in the iPhone will have to be changed , it will cost at least 1,300 rubles – the price of work and accessories depends on the model of the smartphone.

To be fair, it’s worth noting that there are problems with loss of battery capacity not only in the iPhone, but also in the MacBook. The reason for replacing the battery in the Apple laptop can serve not only a set of 1000 cycles of charging – even for 500 cycles the battery can be already worn out. You can check its status only in the walls of the service center with the help of a test system and a number of specific loads; you can not rely on “special” applications again, because they often give inaccurate information.

Perhaps the best solution for increasing the battery life will be working on the computer when it is constantly connected to the charger and has already accumulated 100% charge. In this state, the battery is not involved in operation, and, therefore, its resource is not depleted. Also, we do not recommend using the laptop regularly when the battery level is less than 40% – this can lead to a rapid deterioration of the battery. And the cost of replacing the battery starts at 5000 rubles and depends on the model of the MacBook.

Apple Watch gets a “prize” for third place – they wear out not so fast, but still there is a problem with this. In this case, the Series 1 and earlier models did have serious problems with the battery – they literally “swelled”. The reasons for this may be a lot: temperature, moisture, intensity of use, but, most likely, the problem lies not in operating conditions, but in the “technical” bug of the clock itself. Benefit is solved by replacing the battery Apple Watch . With the release of Series 2 and Series 3, this problem has ceased to be relevant, and now the batteries in Apple’s smart clock work “like a clock.”

But the iPad can be considered the most reliable device from Apple, if we talk about the battery. The battery in it is practically not killed and changes only 3-4 years after the purchase, and with intensive use – after one and a half to two years.

In order not to experience problems with the battery capacity in Apple devices several months after the purchase, simple operating rules should be observed – do not expose the battery to temperature jumps, strong humidity, physical influences and gently recharge the battery. If this problem has not bypassed you, you can contact the service center ModMac , which provides a 10% discount on all types of repairs.
