Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has launched iOS7 to the public and it is available for the older phones to download. But some might face battery life issues upon downloading this new operating system as the battery may phase out very soon.


Those who got tricked by the battery issues can try our ‘home-made’ remedies themselves to fix the issue.

App-related remedies

Apps on iOS 7 get refreshed automatically, even when the user is not using them. Although this is a good feature, the battery is consumed extra. AirDrop is the new feature added by Apple for the first time, but if the user hardly uses it, then it should be turned off.

If there is any app running on the iPhone (or any Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) devices) that is rarely used, it will consume the battery. These sorts of apps should be switched off. Some other apps that can be closed on the iPhone are turning off background apps and automatic content refresh; turn off Siri’s Raise to Speak, turn off Location Services, turn off Push Notifications, turn of Notification Center widgets and quit other such power-hungry apps.

A user generally tends to over-use the new feature in the phone over and again. The whole new iOS 7 may be hard to avoid, with its live wallpapers, multitasking cards, safari tabs, compass and various fun apps. Constantly using the phone may affect the battery and it might get low very quickly. iOS7 is fast and knows when to update the apps, so it is no longer a headache to continuously keep up manually updating yourself.

Other general measures for restoring battery life for Apple devices

If Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) devices lose battery life too quickly, then the user should probably try out few things, like restarting or resetting the device, draining out the battery of the device until it gets switched off and then charging it back to the full. Restoring a device like new is one of the best ways to get the device right. Though it is a tedious process, it can prove to be a real fix for the problems. Upon restoring the device, the user might lose all saved data like game levels, but the battery will perform better than before.

Plugging the device into a good charger is another good thing a user can do to keep the battery powerful. Users can get their hands on a lightening connector, which is useful when working outdoors.

If the signal is weak, the device might be doing some extra work to maintain the signal, or switching between the connection types, which drains lots of power. A good LTE signal is better than a good 3G signal, but bad LTE signal can take away much of the power of the battery.

Last resort: users should not ignore a visit to an Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) store if the issue is not fixed even after doing all the things above.
