If you always seem to be out of battery, you can double your iPhone’s charging speed by following these simple tips.
From dimming the screen to blocking your iPhone‘s connection to the Wi-Fi, these tips can double your device’s charging speed.
1. Turn on flight mode
Switch your phone to flight mode while it’s charging and you will find it charging faster. In this mode, your phone can’t connect to Wi-Fi or mobile networks, so your battery usage will decrease and your device will charge faster. This option can be found in your phone’s settings menu, or by swiping up from the bottom of your home screen.
2. Turn on low-power mode
If you activate low power mode, your screen’s energy consumption will decrease drastically. This mode will also shut down any background functions eating up your power supply, meaning your phone will store more power while plugged in.
3. Turn off push notifications
Push notifications are the little icons and messages which your phone displays on its lock screen whenever you get a text or an update. Switching these off while you’re plugged in will help to keep power to a minimum, preventing your phone screen from flashing up and using power.
4. Use the best charger available
This one is a no-brainer, but using a more powerful charger will leave your phone fully-juiced in less time. iPad chargers actually have a higher power output than iPhone chargers and charge ports on your computer, so will boost your battery at a greater speed. However, some users have stressed that this will put extra strain on your phone’s battery, which risks longer-term damage.
With all of these hacks, Business Insider reports that your phone will charge at twice the speed and can be supercharged in just five minutes!
