How to Make Your iOS Battery Charge Faster
Streets today are filled with seas of people staring at the same thing: their phones.
Whether you’re in line at the coffee shop, waiting for your train to arrive, or eating dinner, you’ll find that the vast majority of people are glued to their smartphones for a good portion of the day.
All that use has made life easier in many ways, but it comes with one major pitfall: the need to charge your phone almost continuously. If you’re sick of leaving your iPhone on the charger for hours on end, there are a few ways you can speed up the process.
The Slow Climb to 100%
iPhone’s can charge from 0 to 100% in about 2 hours and 20 minutes. If you have a few hours that you can stay in the same spot and not touch your phone, that’s all fine and good, but if you’re like most people, that’s a little too long for comfort.
Fortunately, there are a few handy tips that will work wonders for the amount of time it takes your phone to get back to usability.
Racing to The Finish Line
If you find yourself in a bind where your phone is all but dead and you have to leave in 20 minutes, don’t panic. Instead, just be clever about the way you spend your available charging time.
Here are some of the simplest ways to get your iOS battery charging faster:
- Use an iPad charger, as it puts out more power than a regular phone charger.
- Put your phone in airplane mode, or turn it off while it charges.
- Remove your case and place the phone on a hard surface to ensure it stays cool.
- Delete any unnecessary apps that are sucking out energy.
- Turn down your display settings.
No one wants to wait around while their phone takes what feels like an eternity to charge. Work smarter, not harder, and your iOS battery will start charging in a flash.
