Since the release of iOS 7 many people have been facing insane battery drainages, especially those having iPhone 5 and iPhone 4s. Although you cannot be completely obliterate this issue but what you can do is control the battery problem to some extent. We are pretty sure that Apple will roll out an update soon to address this problem just as they released iOS 7.0.2 update to rectify the passcode issue.
To make your iOS 7 battery last longer, you just need to make few changes in the Settings and turning few things off. Given below are some of the tweaks you can apply for your iOS 7 battery to last more than a day.
Tweaking Spotlight Settings
iOS 7 provides you with an amazing search tool called the Spotlight that allows you to search almost anything on your phone by swiping down from the top of screen. But with all the benefits, Spotlight takes great deal of toll on your battery. You can limit the amount of things Spotlight indexes to provide you with search result by going to the Settings > General > Spotlight search. Allow Spotlight to indexes only those things that you search most often.
Keep Brightness Low
This is probably of the very first things that come to our mind when it comes to saving battery. In iOS 7 this can be done pretty easily, rather than going to the Settings, simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen and there you will find Brightness slider in the Control Center. Adjust the brightness according to your need.
Set Parallax to Off
One of the features that were introduced in iOS 7 was the Parallax. Parallax enhances the UI of your phone by making things look 3D and making your background sort of live. This again consumes your battery, to stop Parallax all you need to is go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion. Turning the Reduce Motion on will stop the Parallax.
iOS 7 introduces the whole new multitasking which allows the apps to refresh even when they are running in the background. You can always stop some or all the apps from refreshing in the background to save your iOS 7 battery. To do so go to Settings > General, there you can either turn off all the apps from refreshing by disabling Background Apps Refresh service or you can turn it off for individual apps.
Set Frequent Locations to Off
iPhone keeps track of the locations you most often visit in order to provide you with useful location based information. That certainly drains your batter a lot, to turn it off go to the Settings > Privacy > Location Services. Scroll down to the System Services and in there you will find Location Based iAds, turn it off. After that go to the Frequent Locations and turn it off as well.
This is something that totally depends on you, if you want to use those aesthetic new iOS 7’s moving wallpapers then good but if you still want to save tad bit of iOS 7 battery life then use static wallpapers. Go to the Settings > Wallpapers & Brightness and choose those beautifully designed static wallpapers or some other photo.
