iPhone 4S Battery Life

October 26th, 2011 | Posted by Kevin Wright in Tips & Tutorials - (Comments Off)

As per TTUK 20 here is what I did to massively improve battery life.

  • Reset Network Settings: Tap on “Settings” > Reset > Reset Network Settings
  • Disable Bluetooth: Settings > General > Bluetooth > “OFF”
  • Disable unwated Notifications & apps: Settings > Notifications > Turn OFF for anything you don’t need
  • Disable Location Service: Settings > Location Services > Disable selectively for services you don’t use
  • Disable Timezone Adjustment: Tap on “Settings” > “Location Services” > ‘System Services’ > Setting Time Zone to OFF
  • Disable Ping: Settings > General > Restrictions > Enable Restrictions > Ping > OFF
  • Disable Diagnostic & Usage Reports: Tap on “Settings” > General > About > Diagnostic & Usage > Don’t Send
  • Disable Email accounts by heading to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Account Name > Delete Account. Once done, reset network settings (the first tip up there) then reboot your device and re-add your accounts back from Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account.
  • Disabled the Siri feature to work when you bring it to your face, so now you have to press the button, which is fine by me.
