The battery life of modern gadgets leaves much to be desired. The reason for this is a large number of small chips and options. Most users do not use all the gadgets of iOS. So why not turn them off to save battery power.

To begin with, we use the already familiar settings for saving energy on the iPhone, which work properly in each version of iOS, and then move on to the new features of iOS 13.

Turn On the Dark Theme

I already said that the dark tones on the screen help to conserve battery power. The dark theme of iOS 13 just contributes to this.

LCD vs OLED iPhone Displays

The tip will be relevant only for iPhone models with OLED displays: iPhone X, XS, 11 Pro. For models with IPS screens, iPhone 11 or iPhone XR and earlier this way is not effective. If you still haven’t purchased an iPhone and are considering how to choose an iPhone, then an OLED iPhone will be the obvious choice if you are looking for a more autonomous option.

How to setup: It’s simple, turn on a dark theme on a schedule in the evening on the way Settings -> Display and Brightness -> Automatic, but rather turn on the economical design on an ongoing basis.

Turn off Wi-Fi Assist

This option allows the smartphone to switch to mobile Internet when the Wi-Fi signal of the connection becomes weak.

On the one hand, the chip is useful, but on the other – when exactly the iPhone decides to switch, no one knows for sure. A small network failure, a trip to a room farthest from the router, or Wi-Fi congestion will lead to frequent LTE activation.

As a result, the smartphone will discharge faster and consume mobile traffic when there is Wi-Fi available nearby. It is better to disable this option.

How to setup: Go to Settings -> Cellular data and turn off Wi-Fi Assist at the very bottom of the page.

Configure Access to Location Services

An unobtrusive, but useful innovation in iOS 13 was the new algorithm for providing access to the iPhone’s GPS module.

Now you can not only allow or deny access to geolocation for a specific application, but also choose access with a regular request.

So the application at each launch will ask permission to determine the user’s location. On the one hand, this adds an additional dialog box to the program, but on the other hand, if necessary, it allows you to work with the program without geolocation and save battery power.

How to setup: Go to Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services, open the desired application and change the value to Ask next time or Never.

It’s the best time to ask questions and give us your feedback in comments.
