How to fix iPhone 6 and iOS 8 battery life problems!
If you've got a brand-new iPhone six-plus or iPhone 6 or you've updated to iOS 8 here's how to keep your battery life great so the first thing to do is to assess if you're really draining a lot of battery or not you can go to Settings General usage turn battery percentage on then you'll see how much battery is being used take a note of it 58 percent and you're going to put it down 20 minutes 30 minutes later come back pick it up again take a look at the battery percentage if it's changed radically that means you have a battery drain problem iOS 8 has also added a new feature called battery usage so if you
Go to general usage battery usage it will take a look and list all the apps that are using power so here I can see a list of the last 24 hours and the last two days now it's important to remember that there are different reasons that apps could appear here for example Tweetbot is high but I've been using Tweetbot all the time people out is high because the screen has been on the radios have been firing and I've been using it as totally acceptable same thing if you're rearranging folders browsing bookmarks if something else is going on for
Example background activity maybe photos are uploading in the background phone might sometimes say low single connection that means the radio has to power up a lot just to get a signal out sometimes Wi-Fi does that as well sometimes you'll have an app saying it's using airplay it'll list everything that's going on here most of the time that isn't a problem if however there's an app you've never used for example if I haven't used Facebook at all in the last 24 hours if I haven't used Google Hangouts and it's near the top if I haven't used Skype then there's a
Problem because my usage is not matching what it's showing me in here and then I know that there's a problem and I need to do something about it some of the things you can do if you think background refresh is a problem you can come into settings you can go into general you can go into background app refresh and you can turn off any apps that you think you're using too much power for example I can turn off Facebook yet you'll have to wait a little bit longer when you go to the app but it won't be draining power in the background I can also go to location
Settings so go to privacy I can go to location services if I think anything is using too much GPS or too much location services I can just turn that off so for example if I don't want the weather to always look at me I can just turn that right off another thing I can do is I can kill any apps that I think are just wasting power so for example if I think that Facebook is doing far too much stuff I can just get rid of it last resort I can come here I can hold down the sleep/wake button and the home button and just keep holding them down until
The screen goes black and the Apple logo appears that's a hard reset and that should flush out everything as a final resort if you update it to a new device and you restore it from a backup especially a backup from a different device like iPad 2 iPhone or different generations of iPhone you might want to try doing a new setup instead it's a huge paying set to do every one of your settings again but it can leave the phenomenal battery life that's how to maximize your battery life on iOS 8 iphone 6 plus or iphone 6 i'm rene for more great tips keep it
