Smartphones are probably one of the most useful gadgets ever invented; so much so, it’s pretty hard to remember what life was like without them. I completely rely on my iPhone to get me through the day, and need all of its apps to function at a level close to that of other human beings. Without it, I would be like a puppy let off its leash – completely vulnerable to all the dangers of the big, wide world; if not for the likes of Uber and Google Maps, I’d be a dead man.
The only problem I have is that most of the time, my iPhone is running on about 20 percent battery power. It’s one of the most frustrating things ever; it lasts from when I first wake up in the morning until about half past six in the afternoon, before it shuts down completely – usually when I’m about to get an important message from someone.
Trying to squeeze a few more precious minutes of extra battery life out of your smartphone really is an exercise in frustration. Where does all that power go? What the heck makes it deplete from 100 percent to almost nothing in such a short space of time, particularly when it’s just sitting there idle? If only there was a way to make it last a little bit longer.
Luckily, we’ve managed to discover some useful hints and tips to boost your battery life and save your power for longer; all it takes is a bit of technical know-how and some jiggery-pokery, so pay close attention to our sage advice.
