iPhone battery replacement
While Apple products can boast of high-capacity, long-life batteries, customers sometimes have to complain about battery malfunctions. Replacing the battery of an iPhone is a common problem that iFix masters call upon, but if you follow a few fairly simple tips, it is likely that the battery life will be significantly longer. So what’s important to know about iPhone battery replacement and maintenance?
Avoid temperatures that are too high and too low
The iPhone performs well at temperatures between 0 and 35 degrees Celsius, but it feels best between 16 and 22 degrees Celsius. It is very important that the device is not stored above 35 degrees Celsius as this may cause irreversible battery damage. Charging the device at high temperatures can damage the battery in such a way that replacing the iPhone battery in the future is simply inevitable. Still, the iPhone is a really clever device: its software can prevent the battery from charging more than 80 percent if the recommended battery temperature is too high. The coldness of the iPhone battery is also not very pleasant – at minus temperatures you will certainly notice that the battery life is much shorter.
If you don't use your device for a while ...
It is important to know that using certain iPhone cases may cause the device to overheat, which will reduce the battery capacity. If you notice that the device is heating up, try removing the case first and observe that the situation has not changed.
Remove the case during charging
If you do not intend to use the iPhone for some time, be aware of the ambient temperature and the charge level of the device. No need to fully charge or discharge the battery: Ideally you need to charge it approximately 50 percent. If the battery is fully discharged for a prolonged period, it may enter a deep discharge state and this may result in loss of charge. Leaving the battery fully charged may cause it to lose some of its power and affect its shorter life. When not in use, it is best to switch off the appliance and place it in a cool place where the temperature should never exceed 32 degrees Celsius. If you haven’t used your iPhone for more than 6 months, charge it up to 50 percent every six months. When you start using the device again, the battery may be discharged and it may take up to 20 minutes for the device to charge.
For some reason, replacing your iPhone’s battery is sometimes unavoidable, but there are a few helpful tips to help you extend your battery’s life when you start using a new battery. The first thing to do is to reduce the screen brightness. Naturally, when the maximum brightness of the screen is set, the battery runs out fast enough, so reduce the screen brightness to 30-40 percent. Usually, this is enough to enjoy a bright enough screen, so why not use it? After each serious system check, iPhone turns on Bluetooth, which can lead to faster battery drain. As Bluetooth is used less frequently, it is recommended that you disable Bluetooth. If you are in areas away from cell towers, turn on flight mode: You may have noticed repeatedly that trying to catch a connection speeds up battery discharge, so flight mode can help prevent this. If you have opted for a continuous update of your email inbox, it will inevitably run out of battery, so choose on-demand email upgrade.
All this can help prevent the iPhone battery from being overcharged and extend its life, so it’s always a good idea to follow these tips.
