iPhone 5 battery tips & tricks
To help you get the most from your battery you may want to head into settings and turn off your location services. People will not be able to locate your iPhone 5 on the map using “Find my iPhone”, but you will save on battery.
Head into settings and choose the auto lock feature on your handset. You can choose from 1 minute to 5 minutes and after this time your screen will turn off, saving your battery.
Turn off the auto brightness feature of your handset and change the slider of the brightness to the left to make it as dim as you possibly are comfortable with. Once your eyes have got used to the brightness you will not be able to see the difference.
Make sure that you have the latest apps on your iPhone 5. Head into settings and on the general tab you can see if any apps need updating, keeping apps up to date helps to improve your battery.
