Many iOS devices have updated to the latest Apple iOS version, iOS 11, but not all devices express a good battery life after the update. So in this post, we’ll tell you a plethora of methods to optimize your iPhone/iPad’s battery life so that you spend less time for the power outlet.
However, you should note that the solutions are optional, so we wouldn’t expect you to apply all these methods. You can mix and match features that work for you.
How To Maximize Battery In iOS 11
Restrict Location Services
Locations services are very battery-intensive on iOS devices. Unlike previous iOS versions, iOS 11 comes with the advantageous ways to limit apps from asking your location all the time. To enable it, head to Settings → Privacy → Location Services and enable each app individually with its own settings. Choose the “While Using” option for apps requiring your location.
Use Auto-Lock Settings
Auto-Lock is a useful feature to save your iOS 11 device’s battery. Apple designed it as a security feature rather than battery savings, but if your display turns off automatically, it will not eat up much battery juice as it is set for extended periods of time.
You can enable auto-lock settings from Settings → Display & Brightness → Auto-Lock.
Disable Raise to Wake Feature
If you are using an iPhone 6s or higher models, then they support Raise to Wake feature, which makes the screen turn on when lifting them to look at it. This feature is very convenient in many cases, but it also drains your battery so fast as sensors of your iPhone always has to be active for this feature, so disabling it can save up the battery. Simply go to Settings → Display & Brightness and disable the feature.
Control Background App Refresh
Background App Refresh allows your apps to refresh the data in background so that they can load faster when you launch them. But it also equates to power consumption though you don’t use your device.
So, you can easily limit Background App Refresh for specific apps or disable it entirely to save the battery life. Head to Settings → General → Background App Refresh and choose which you want to do.
Delete power-hungry apps
Simply navigate to Settings → Battery and gauge what apps are eating up the most battery. If you see an app that you don’t really need is sucking up a lot of your battery juice, delete it to improve the battery life.

Many of your apps notify you in a day, such as important messages from your family, or something dumb like a game notification, these notifications absolutely influence the battery.
When you first launch the apps, you usually allow them to send information and connect to the internet in the background in order to notify you, but each notification will turn on your display and requires battery juice. So, you should go to Settings → Notifications to take an overall look at which apps are allowed the notifications. Next, set limits to maximize your battery life.
Activate Low Power Mode
Another method you should not skip is to enable Low Power Mode. Although this will restrict features like email-fetching, Hey Siri, Background App Refresh, Auto-Lock, and visual effects, enabling it will absolutely decrease your phone’s overall power consumption and maximize the battery usage.
You can easily turn on this feature from the new Control Center in iOS 11, or go to Settings → Battery and toggle the switch to on.
