The Ultimate Guide to Solving iOS Battery Drain

I've seen a few of these articles. The advice here is a bit different, and perhaps more useful. The Ultimate Guide to Solving iOS Battery Drain — Overthought

This is not one of those "Turn off every useful feature of iOS" posts that grinds my gears. My goal is to deliver practical steps to truly solve your iOS battery woes.

I don't really have any problem with iOS battery drain, but then I don't watch movies on them at all and also I recharge them on a daily schedule.

Very good article. Battery drain is not a problem here, if it is that's a sign to go find a dog to walk for a while. Or get some food with a sweetie (better).

Great article. My wife has noticed her battery seems to drain quicker. These tips should help us narrow it down.

I was also impressed reading about the tools they provide to their Genius Bar employees. I always forget about the Apple store option. Too many years fixing stuff on my own. The end to end customer experience that Apple provides is pretty cool.

I notice increased battery drain if I have cellphone connection turned on, so I leave it off most of the time.

I keep my screen dimmed. I noticed faster drain if my screen brightness was turned up.

I use my iPad a lot every day. I need to charge it every other day or so. That seems reasonable, I was expecting 10 hours battery life?

Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
