Before delving into this article, it is important to note that battery problems can be due to new features that Apple has implemented or errors that need to be corrected, such as those we have experienced with the Instagram or Twitter application. Whatever the cause, there is always a solution and that is what we are going to analyze below.
Turn off live activities
Live activities allow applications to contain a Continuous notification on lock screen or dynamic island. Along with this, we have to add that with the arrival of iOS 17, the possibility of carrying out live activities is added. This, together with the always active screen of the 14 Pro and 15 Pro, the option of live activities can significantly drain the battery.
To deactivate this option, we have to perform the following steps:
- Go to settings on your iPhone and we go to configuration.
- We unlock the iPhone using Face ID technology.
- Next, head down to the bottom of the settings panel and turn off live activities.
Thanks to this deactivation, we will prevent live activities from appearing on the lock screen. However, we can go one step further. To do this, we go to the application Settings and select the option to disable applications live, an aspect that prevents the possibility of applications having live activities within the application itself.
Take advantage of offline maps
In iOS 17, we can download offline maps for the first time. This is useful when you have a lot of GB left in your data rate, but it is advisable to do it even if you have a lot of them left, because they know when you might need them or you are traveling to an area with an irregular connection.
For this reason, Apple has implemented the offline map option, a process that consists of downloading the map and then using the offline application, which It will preserve battery life without affecting your ability to move. The download process is very simple. To do this, you have to search for a location in Maps, tap the download button and then select the map area to download.
Turn off always-on display
This feature is only available for iPhone Pro of the last two generations. This feature, despite how interesting it is, has the disadvantage that it consumes a large amount of resources that can end up draining the battery in the long term and even on a day-to-day basis. To deactivate this option, you have to go to the following steps:
- Go to your iPhone settings and select the display window and brightness
- We press the Always active screen option
- Disable this option.
It is not really clear when the actual percentage of consumption of this action is, although studies determine that its reduction capacity ranges between 15-20%, truly outrageous.
