Improve iPhone Battery Life

Posted by     |   Categories :   cell phone repair

With each passing day, it seems like your iPhone battery life drains faster and faster. This might seem like its due to the apps piling up on your phone, or the new iOS update – and it certainly is – however there are other reasons as well. Naturally, the lithium-ion battery only has a certain amount of charge cycles before it degnerates heavily. This is the most annoying problem any Tampa or Clearwater Apple user, especially if you are going to be using your phone extensively for work or play. Your phone dying half way through the day can be a total productivity crusher and considering it isn’t able to be replaced easily, there needs to be an affordable and trustworthy fix for this.

What should you do if your battery life is fine, but you want to keep it optimized? There are several awesome posts online that can help with this process (check out Apple’s official take on this – applies to all sorts of Apple devices).  From the technicians we’ve talked to, here are the best tips to consistently implement to make sure replacing your iPhone 5 battery is the last item on your list.

  • Reduce brightness, especially if you don’t need to have it above 50%

Local iPhone Repair Solutions

iPhone and Android cell phone repair has become a burgeoning industry in Edmonton in recent years. Young professionals and almost anyone relies heavily on their cell phone to communicate and stay connected with friends and family members. So it is understandable that when hardware issues – be it cracked screens or bad batteries rear their ugly head that people want a fast, convenient solution to getting their iPhone up and running again in the Edmonton area.

You essentially have two options if you are looking down at a cracked iPhone screen or other hardware problem. You can either take it to Apple and exchange for a refurbished phone (shipped to you within 2 days), or you can visit a local third party cell phone repair shop in Montreal. The issue most people run into is that the Apple replacement only applies to those of you that purchased an Apple Care extended warranty, and if you haven’t – you haven’t got much of an ‘official’ option. Third party cell phone repair shops can be shady, but if you know how to filter out the options that should be avoided, it isn’t much of a problem. High quality replacement components are getting more and more available on the open market, so as long as you don’t run to the lowest price supplier on the market without doing any research, and you are covered by a warranty, you will definitely not have a problem getting your iPhone screen fixed.
