Battery & Data Management
Let’s start with battery management. Whilst most people can get to a charger there can be times when this isn’t possible. Managing your battery when its low is simple by turning off several functions. You can still receive texts and calls but your battery life will be extended drastically.
1 – Brightness – Turning down your iPhone brightness will save a lot of power. Go to settings, then to Brightness, then to auto brightness and switch this off. Now you can put your phone brightness on low saving a lot of battery usage.
2 – Turn Bluetooth off. Bluetooth uses a lot of power and disabling is simple. Go to settings, then select Bluetooth and select off.
3 – When your iPhone follows your location its constantly using power. Go to settings, then to privacy, the to location services and turn off.
4 – Turning off 3G and 4G saves a good amount of power. It means you can’t get emails on the move but you can always retrieve these when you arrive at your destination. Go to settings, then to general, then to internet connections and set to off.
5 – Turning off your ringtone and vibration also saves on battery life. GO to settings, then to sounds, then to Vibrate and Ring and switch this to off.

iMessage is a great feature but sometimes you don’t want someone to know you have read their message. Go to Settings, then to messages, select send read receipts and turn off. This will stop iMessage from sending a read receipt.
