Here are some tips and tricks to help make your iPhone battery last longer.

Turn off Background App Refresh

One way to extend your battery life is to turn off the Background App Refresh in your Settings.

According to Apple: "When Background App Refresh is enabled, apps can check for new data and updates even when you're not using them, which can drain your battery and use up your data.

"Disabling Background App Refresh can help to improve your iPhone's battery life and performance.

"It can also save you data if you're on a limited data plan."

Turn off Location Services

Another way battery power is affected is through the allowance of Location Services. While this can be useful for apps like Google Maps, it can wear down your battery quickly, giving you less time to scroll.

To turn this off, you should access Settings, Privacy & Security and Location Services before deactivating it.

To do this, PC Magazine states that you should access Settings and Notifications before turning off notifications on certain apps.
