Yesterday we took a look at how to improve battery life on Android phones, but fret not iPhone users! We haven’t forgotten about you folks using iOS, and we’ve got a handful of tips for improving run time on your phones too. In fact we have one EXTRA tip that those Android folks didn’t get…

We use mobile devices pretty aggressively these days. Think back to where we were five years ago, and we have to acknowledge that we have seen steady and consistent growth in battery technology and capacity. It’s pretty normal these days to have a shockingly thin handset which also backs a respectably large battery. The problem is, battery tech hasn’t improved at the same rate that display, CPU, and GPU performance have improved. Even if it had though, we can always count on consumer behavior as the great equalizer. We could double the battery capacity of a consumer’s phone, but that consumer won’t continue to use the phone like they did with the smaller capacity, they’ll instead use the phone even more throughout the day, then still complain that the device doesn’t deliver the same run time as when it was brand new.

How might we address this issue? iPhones prevent us from swapping out the included battery for a larger one, so instead we have to look at what behaviors we can change when we want to really maximize longevity. Wanna get as much run time as you can away from a charger? Here’s nine simple tips to help you hypermile your phone. Though, you might not want to use them…
