How to Make Your iPhone 6 and 6+ Batteries Last Longer

While the iPhone 6 and 6+ offer new levels of performance, power, upgrades and design to Apple users, there’s still that one department where the old standards continue. If you are an avid smartphone user, you know what’s being talked about here – battery.

Both these phones’ battery life seem to be the same as that of the iPhone 5s. However, there are several things you can do to ensure your handy phone gets the most out of its quick-dying battery pack.


Keep track of the battery usage.

Lucky for you, iOs 8 has finally allowed iPhone users to access a standard feature to Android phones – battery usage data. Now, you won’t have to worry about batteries suddenly draining and you left without a clue why.

Just go to Settings > General > Usage > Battery Usage to access the list of phone activities that are causing your battery’s drainage.

Stop background activities.

Usually, apps that are running in the background update themselves and continue providing real-time data. They can be the biggest leaches to smartphone power. To save battery life, turn these off especially when not needed.

Head to Settings > General > Background App Refresh. There, you can choose which apps you would prefer to turn off.

Get the iPad 12-watt power adapter.


This one’s a new trick. Sometimes, batteries take long hours to completely charge using the standard 5-watt charger. If you are in a hurry or just don’t want to wait, then this trick will be most helpful to you. Use the iPad’s 12-Watt power adapter. Not only do the iPhones 6 and 6+ support this charger, they also charge significantly faster with it! Hopefully, these tips have helped you in some way. Now go share them with your fellow battery-frustrated peers and enjoy your longer lasting smartphones!
