Battery survival mode for the iPhone
Posted by onlydarksets on July 24, 2008
UPDATE: Just found this. There really is nothing new under the sun.
I got home yesterday evening and realized I had left my charger at work (I have a couple more on order, but they haven’t arrived yet, so I only have the one from the box). I had charged all day and on the drive home, so I was pretty much full up after about an hour’s worth of use.
To extend the battery life, I shut down the following:
- Location Services
- Wifi searching
I used the Wifi a bit that night, but I had about 75% remaining when I went to bed. 8 hours later, I still had probably 65% battery life – I was shocked! I turned everything but the Wifi searching back on once I plugged it back into the car charger. Good to know I can squeeze a full day+ out of this if necessary!
