Why Does My iPhone Battery Die So Fast

One of the most common issues regarding cell phones is battery problems. You know, at first everything is working just fine, but suddenly your phone's battery doesn't last as it used to. But when it comes to iPhones, many reasons entail this problem such as location services, push mail, not closing correctly the apps you use, never turning your phone off even if you are charging it among other things. If you have this problem, read more here to know about the possible solutions to repair your iPhone.

Here are the main reasons why your iPhone's battery dies faster than the usual

Push mail

When your mail is set to push, that means every second your iPhone will be connected to the server asking if there is any mail. This constant flow of data drains your battery very quickly, and it actually makes sense if you think about it.

Location services

Sometimes, there are some services that you probably don't know about, and they can constantly drain your battery. A solution for this problem is going to privacy, then location services and scroll all the way down to the last option, system services. Tap on "system services" to open that folder. Then, turn off "setting time zone" if you don't usually travel a lot. Turn off "location-based iAds" if you find Apple is tracking your location to deliver you personalized unnecessary ad content and last but not least, turn off "diagnostics and usage" if you don't think Apple needs to know exactly ho you use your phone.

Close out your apps

Once a day, be sure to close out all of your apps. If your iPhone has iOS 6, double tap the home button, press and hold on any one of the apps until they all start to wiggle. Then, hit the red circles to close out all of your apps, don't worry this doesn't delete your apps it just clears them from the application memory. If you don't close correctly the apps you used, your phone will start to get hot because the CPU it's running at 100% all day long.

Turn off your phone once a week

An iPhone is like a little computer that we carry around with us everywhere we go. Imagine letting your computer running for a month; it would totally slow down just like your iPhone. Just hold the top power button for a few seconds, slide it to power off and then turn on the phone again. You will see that many of the processes that you don't see running on your phone will stop running and they will start fresh again.

Apple technicians are trained to never believe that a battery issue is actually a battery issue. They will send you home to do the tips mentioned above to fix the problem yourself. If you already tried all of these tips to improve your iPhone's battery but it still doesn't work, it is recommended to contact a specialized technician to repair your phone, not an Apple technician, though. This video gives you more tips on how to fix a cell phone battery problem, give a try, and again if it doesn't work, take it with a professional technician.
