Apple has brought many features with this latest software update and checking & improving the battery of the device is one of the prominent offerings in iOS 13. Now, this doesn’t mean that installing iOS 13 will automatically improve the battery performance on your iPhone. Beta version of iOS 13 will definitely drain the battery and if you are using all the features carelessly then your battery is going to die before the expectation. So here, we have enlisted some tips for you that will help you to improve battery life of iPhone with iOS 13.

Important tips to improve iOS 13 battery issue on your iPhone

Before heading towards the tips, you need to check what is causing battery issue or which apps are draining the battery juice. So what you have to is, just navigate to the Settings, then Battery and select last 24 hours of usage or last 10 days. Here, you can analyze which apps and which settings are causing the device’s battery draining sooner. So you need to amend some settings and force close some apps. You can also check the health of the battery in iOS 13’s new feature. It will tell you whether it is a battery that needs to be changed or not.

1. Turn off location services

Location and the increased brightness of the device drain the battery of the device so you need to keep an eye on these settings. You can turn it off after the use from Settings => Privacy => Location Services. 

If you want location services to use on some selected apps and don’t want to turn on and off every time you want to use then you can allow the use of the services to those apps by allowing “while using the app” and turn off for other apps. This will help you to save the battery. Some apps use the location services in the background and drain your battery quickly. So we would recommend you to use the location service when you need for apps like Apple Maps, Google Maps, or any other and after the use, turn the service off.

2. Use Automatic Dark Mode

Dark Mode is a new feature in iOS 13 and it is best for eyes while using the iPhone at night as well day. But Dark Mode can also help you to save the battery of the device compared to light mode. If you don’t know how to enable Dark Mode in iOS 13 then just open Settings => Display & Brightness and select Dark Mode.

3. Turn off Background App Refresh

Background App Refresh can really drain the juice of the battery. If you might have many apps installed on your device and some of them are useful occasionally only. So disabling “background app refresh” really helps to save battery life of the device. 

You can disable it through the General Settings => Background App Refresh and select off in the setting. Now, disabling background app refresh doesn’t mean that you won’t receive WhatsApp notifications and messenger apps. Don’t worry everything runs smoothly even this setting is disabled. 

4. Use Often Low Power Mode

Using low power mode will not harm the functions of the apps on the phone and it will help to save the battery of the device. Turning on this setting will also automatically disable background app refresh and lower the brightness. Generally, you get a notification to turn on the low power mode when battery percentages reach to 20% but you can use it all day long.

In “Settings”, head over to “Battery” and turn on the “Low Power Mode”. You can also set the short cut of the setting in the control center for easy access.

5. Force Close Apps

We may have installed more than 20 various apps on the device and use some of them in a day. But just like others you may not be closing the app you have used and that can drain the battery. Although, slowly but definitely. 

To for close the apps on the iPhone with the home button, click the home button twice and you can close all the recently used apps by swiping them up. If you have iPhone X and other iPhones without home button then swipe up from the gesture bar then hold and close the used apps by swiping them up.

6. Disable Raise to Wake

Raise to wake is an amazing feature to check the notifications on the device quickly without pressing the power key or anything. You just have to pick the phone and screen will turn on but this will also consume the battery juice. Disabling this device will help to save the battery. 

To disable “Raise to wake” just navigate to Settings => Display & Brightness and turn off it by toggling off.

7. Allow Notifications from a Few Selected Apps

Whenever you install an app, you are asked to allow permission to send notifications by the app. Well, allowing every app to send you notification may drain the battery life. So we would recommend you to allow notifications from selected apps only to improve and save the battery life on iOS 13. In order to do so, head over to Settings => Notifications => and select any app that you want to allow notifications such as WhatsApp, Facetime, Instagram, and other messaging and important apps. 

Final Words

So these are some significant settings that you can amend in your iPhone with iOS 13 and improve the battery life. If any of these settings won’t help you to save the battery then you can “reset all settings” and always keep in mind that you have the latest iOS version installed on the device. 

To improve the life of the battery, you can enable “Optimized Battery Charging” on iOS 13. To enable it, Settings => Battery => Battery Health => and toggle on.
