in this video showing some tips tricks on your iPhone iPad or iPod touch that will help you improve ios 11 battery life.
First things first inside of settings that bluetooth does not turn off when you turn it off if that makes any sense so if I go into settings and I turn on Bluetooth and if I exit out I swipe up in control center you can see that bluetooth is on now if I turn this off it's just as not connected bluetooth is not actually off so it's still scanning in the background and it's still enabled and you can see that when you go into settings it says Bluetooth not connected and when you tap on that it's still on.
The only way to fully turn off Bluetooth is to turn on airplane mode or to come into settings manually and switch off of bluetooth
Next up if you have an iPhone cellular now includes some new options moved from the phone tab in iOS 10 so instead of Wi-Fi calling go ahead and turn this off if you do not use this if you're on a bad Wi-Fi network and your phone's just trying to connect it'll be struggling now scrolling all the way down here in the cellular tab don't go ahead and turn off Wi-Fi assist because this will use a battery when you're on a bad Wi-Fi network and your phone compensates by switching to LTE
Next one here is in the notifications now this is a big one because in here the apps that you do not use will eat up your battery life if you have them currently turn on so for example I don't use the home app at all but it's always in the background scanning for notifications so I'm going to all mixed up inside of the wallpaper settings tap on the wallpaper and make sure is set on still and not perspective
Next up inside of Siri and search in iOS 11 Siri has extended capabilities when it comes to reaching across to every application you have on your device now that can take up some battery life so you want to go through here and disable stuff you don't want series scanning that way series not always stalking you.
Now in iOS 11 the auto brightness function has been moved out of the traditional display and brightness tab so you have to go to General accessibility display accommodations and here is auto brightness I recommend turning this off because this doesn't really help.
I mean sometimes it does sometimes it doesn't is more of a hit and miss especially on older devices so just turn it off if you want some extra juice it's not that hard to swipe up and go like this also in accessibility settings you can turn on reduce motion and increase contrast which will help a little bit and if you don't like vibrations from your device you can turn it off here so no notifications will ever give you a vibration which in turn will save some battery life and of course here in the battery section of your device you do have the option for a low-power mode
In here you can also see which apps are taking up the most battery and try to work on using those apps less and less that will obviously improve your battery life and for some devices you will get a tab saying battery life suggestions Apple will give you suggestions based on your current battery life definitely keep an eye out for that.
Next up inside of privacy good on location services and in here turn off everything that you don't want tracking you like for example Best Buy anything with and always is going to drain your battery life like a leech on a pig I mean it is not good so set it to while using the app or never depending on what app of course and keeps growing down here into system services and turn off everything like the compass calibration or home kit things like cell network search or emergency SOS Find My iPhone definitely keep it on but if you have like ads or set in time zone share my location Wi-Fi networking those type of things don't need to access your location because they can usually find out where you are by the IP address on your wife so you don't need a separate process tracking where you are and also significant locations this just has been renamed from frequent locations in iOS 10 where your device is tracking literally everywhere you go and it's kind of creepy so definitely turn this off if this was on you'll be able to see them locations it save and you can color it from here and product improvement things like iPhone analytics or if you don't use the popular apps near me turn these off to save some extra juice.
I'm gonna scroll all the way down in the privacy tab here in motion and fitness you can turn off fitness tracking so your iPhone doesn't track how many steps you take in a day and also here in analytics you can turn off share iPhone analytics and also in advertising turn on limit ad tracking that way applications are not tracking your online activity and scrolling back to the main panel in iTunes and apps or turn off automatic downloads this will definitely take off a lot of battery.
video autoplay definitely or you can set it to Wi-Fi only it depends on your preferences and turn off this option offload unused apps this will basically automatically delete your applications that you don't use it'll still keep your information and you can choose at any time to re download it back but it's an extra process that your phone has to handle and I just recommend keeping this off okay scrolling back up to settings in general if you don't use the handoff feature where you like start a project on your device or your Mac and it'll transfer over to the other device if you don't use this feature you can turn this off and it will help you save some battery life
One is background app refresh turn this off even though there are a couple of new options for it you should still keep this option off and one less tip I want to share with you guys in this video is going to general accessibility go to display accommodations and this is where the reduce whitepoint option has been moved to so go ahead and turn this on this is basically allowing you to darken the whiteness of iOS and you can use this on top of adjusting your brightness to lower your brightness to something much lower than you normally can but anyways
