Why Does My iPhone Battery Die So Fast? 5 Real Fixes!

Every gadget enthusiast has been there: It’s the middle of the day, and your iPhone’s battery is already gasping for power. It’s frustrating, I know. But don’t worry, we’ve all been in your shoes. And I’m here today to guide you through 15 real fixes that can help you get the most out of your iPhone battery. These are tried and true techniques that I’ve personally tested over time, so let’s dive in!

1. Check Your Battery Health

The first step to solving a problem is understanding it. To know how your battery is doing, head to Settings > Battery > Battery Health. If the ‘Maximum Capacity’ is below 80%, it’s high time to consider replacing the battery. But if it’s more than that, then there might be other issues at play.

2. Update Your Software

Sometimes, all you need is an update to fix those pesky battery issues. Your iPhone software should always be up to date. To check this, go to Settings > General > Software Update. If an update is available, hit that ‘Download and Install’ button right away.

3. Adjust Your Brightness

Your screen gobbles up a lot of battery. Consider adjusting your brightness level or turning on ‘Auto-Brightness’ in Settings > Display & Brightness. Your eyes and your battery will thank you.

4. Close Unnecessary Apps

Apps running in the background can be the biggest culprits of battery drain. Try closing unused apps by double-clicking the home button (or swiping up from the bottom of the screen on iPhone X and later) and swipe the app windows away.

5. Disable Push Email

If your email is set to push, it means your phone maintains a constant connection to your email server and drains your battery.

To disable push email:

  1. Open ‘Settings’.
  2. Tap ‘Mail’.
  3. Tap ‘Accounts’.
  4. Tap ‘Fetch New Data’.
  5. Tap ‘Push’ at the top of the screen to toggle it off. Alternatively, you can set individual accounts to ‘Fetch’ or ‘Manual’ to save more battery life.

All these steps are meant to help optimize your iPhone’s battery life. However, if you find that you’re still struggling with battery drain, it may be time to reach out to Apple Support or consider getting your battery replaced.
