iPhone 13 hacks to improve battery life – so that you never run out of charge

When Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the new iPhone 13 range in September, he boasted that it would have full-day battery and last longer than many of Apple's competitors.

While the iPhone 13 Pro Max certainly does have an impressive 12 hour+ battery on paper, that doesn't mean all iPhones will last that long.

In fact, anyone who has used an iPhone for more than a couple of months can probably tell you that the battery doesn't last anywhere near as long as it used to.

Luckily, there are a number of easy steps you can take to improve your battery life and get the most out of your iPhone.

As you can probably imagine, some of these involve reducing power-hungry features on the iPhone so that you can get on with everyday tasks for longer.

First off, dim your screen brightness. The iPhone's powerful display is by far one of its biggest power draining features, and keeping it on full brightness will not only waste your battery, but cause eye strain.

Failing that, close your most power-hungry apps.

Go to the Settings app and hit Battery. It will show you which apps have used the most battery in the last 24 hours or 10 days. Close them.

If all else fails, activate low power mode via the Battery settings. It will turn off some key background tasks which might make you miss a couple of notifications, but if you're out for the night without a charger, it will help keep you afloat.

These should help things improve temporarily. You could always turn off 5G and location if the situation doesn't improve. Or, worst-case scenario: get a portable charger or just a Samsung instead. (They fold in half now)
