The One Thing You Should Do As Soon As You Get The Low Battery Alert On Your iPhone

November 16, 2016 by Lisa Fogarty
shefinds | Style

We’ve all been there: you’re out, busy and engaged, when you try to send a text or take a photo and are suddenly hit with a low battery alert on your iPhone. Sure, the first logical thing to do would be to plug in your charger and solve the problem in minutes. But what steps should you take if you’ve left your charger at home and are really in bind?

“If you’re not using WiFi, enable Airplane Mode (Settings > Airplane Mode) because this will help conserve battery power,” says Apple Distinguished Educator Patrick Fogarty. “You can and should also switch it to Low Power Mode by tapping Settings > Battery.”

With these two important steps out of the way, the next thing Fogarty recommends doing is disabling location services by going to Settings > Privacy and turning Location Services off. And, of course, always turn off background apps, which sap battery power, by tapping Settings > General > Background App Refresh and turning it off. Lastly, be careful not to run maps, location trackers like Foursquare, or any other GPS-dependent apps — all of these services and apps drain the life out of a phone’s battery.

Following these steps while you’re out should ensure you conserve just enough of your phone’s battery to get you safely home to your charger.
