2- Deactivate the location of non-important applications:
To deactivate the location of apps that we do not want to be located, we must go to SETTINGS / PRIVACY / LOCATION. From the list of apps that appears, we recommend leaving just and necessary apps active since the constant use of GPS consumes many resources.
3- Turn off Bluetooth and activate it only when you really need it:
From the control center we can activate and deactivate Bluetooth easily and simply. We make the control center appear (sliding your finger from the bottom of the screen up) and deactivate whenever this type of connection is not required. By doing this we do not deactivate it completely.
If you want it, it is 100% deactivated, since you don't have any accessories that you should connect to via Bluetooth, you should go to SETTINGS / BLUETOOTH, and deactivate it at the root.

Battery life increases with less frequent updates. If you put it "MANUALLY" you will only update the accounts when you enter them. With this option we will save enough battery. It is possibly the advice that saves the most battery.

11- Lower the brightness to the screen and thus lower the battery consumption:
Lower the screen brightness, whenever you can and have automatic brightness off, from the center of the control.
12- If you are going to have the iPhone at rest in areas without WIFI, we recommend deactivating the WIFI option:
The WIFI can be disabled from the control center. If we do it this way we will not deactivate it completely. To disable it completely you have to do it from the SETTINGS / WIFI.

Disable the 4G connection in SETTINGS / MOBILE DATA / OPTIONS / VOICE AND DATA. Yes we activate 2G We will continue to receive notifications and we can even navigate, though, in a much slower way. Instead, we will have a fairly large battery savings (recommended action when we have very little battery).

You can deactivate it from SETTINGS / SIRI AND SEARCH. You must deactivate the "Press the side button to open Siri" option to deactivate the virtual assistant Apple.
16- Remove possible third-party profiles installed on our device. Very important to reduce battery consumption:
In the final part of the SETTINGS / GENERAL menu, we could have installed the profile of a company or app that, if we do not know its origin, we can eliminate since many of them make us consume enough battery.
17- Review the configuration of installed applications:
Many of the applications that we install on our device make a place in the terminal SETTINGS. In the lower part they will appear and we recommend you to click one by one and deactivate options that may drain battery such as sending statistical data, location, connection to mobile data network …
18- Configure the automatic device lock:
This can be done from SETTINGS / DISPLAY AND BRIGHTNESS / AUTOMATIC LOCK. The less time you put in, the more battery you will save.

This function that makes every time we raise the iPhone, the screen turns on. Disabling this option will obviously save a lot of battery. To do this we go to the settings and go to SETTINGS / DISPLAY AND BRIGHTNESS / SURVEY TO ACTIVATE and deactivate this option.
21- Active Reduce movement:
Perhaps the option that will make our device go more fluid and work much better. Especially if we have an old device. In addition, by going more rolled, we will save battery consumption. To do this we go to ADJUSTMENTS / ACCESSIBILITY / MOVEMENT settings and activate the «Reduce movement» option.
22- Disable Physical Activity:
By default it is activated. By deactivating it, we can reduce consumption considerably. We go to SETTINGS / PRIVACY / PHYSICAL ACTIVITY and deactivate completely.
23- Disable Automatic application update:
Automatically updating applications greatly increases battery consumption. Therefore it is best to deactivate. For this we go to the SETTINGS / ITUNES STORE and APP STORE and deactivate the option Updates and, if you want, all the others.
24- Disable True Tone:
The iPhone Y iPad they bring the option of True tone. You might like the hue that the screen adopts when it is active but, tell you, that it does thanks to the work of several advanced multichannel sensors. We do not like that warm tone that the screen takes and, still less, have sensors working all day to adapt those tones. That is why if we deactivate it, we will gain autonomy.
25- Deactivate the option «Hey Siri»:
One of the most interesting functions is also one of the most used battery. Everything is because if you have it activated, you must keep the microphone of our equipment on to listen to the command «Hey Siri», which activates the virtual assistant of Apple.
26- Activate the dark mode to reduce battery consumption:
Since iOS 13 We have the possibility to activate the dark mode. This will make the iPhone that have an OLED screen, when only the LEDs are illuminated in the areas where there are colors, in the areas of the screen where there is a black color, the LEDs do not turn on and not so much battery is consumed. In dark mode, when black predominates, it will reduce battery consumption by having the screen on.
27- Use a black wallpaper:
As we have said before, the iPhone with OLED screen (iPhone X, XS, XS PLUS and the new iPhone 11) if they use black wallpapers, will reduce battery consumption caused by the device screen.
28- Reduce the white point:
Accessing ADJUSTMENTS / ACCESSIBILITY / DISPLAY AND SIZE OF THE TEXO we have access to an option called «Reduce white point», which when activated allows us to regulate the intensity of bright colors. The more we reduce that intensity, the less battery consumption since it will prevent the screen from shining more, with the consequent energy expenditure.
29- Deactivate the FACE ID:
If you have a iPhone With this facial recognition technology, you can always improve autonomy somewhat if you deactivate this function. If you do not need the terminal to scan your face to access the mobile, it does not hurt to disable it. There are people who do very well with the classic 4 or 6 digit code to unlock the iPhone.
To deactivate it, enter SETTINGS / FACE ID AND CODE and deactivate everything that has to do with this function, which are normally the first 4 options. We also recommend deactivating the options that appear in the "Attention" section.
30- Deactivate the microphone in apps that use it without consent:
Accessing SETTINGS / PRIVACY / MICROPHONE, the applications that allow you to use the microphone will appear. Evidently some of them is necessary, for example in the case of WhatsApp to send audios, but there are others that you can disable and more knowing that apps like Instagram, activate the micro to "spy" conversations and then offer us advertising based on what we talk or say while using the app.
We recommend that you deactivate those that you deem appropriate By not having access to the microphone while using the application, we can improve some autonomy.
Instagram you need to use the mic to use Instagram Stories We use that function a lot but we deactivate access to the app's microphone. When we are going to upload a story, we activate it and after doing so, we deactivate it again.
And this is all … what do you think about it?
You will see how doing these practices, whenever you can and you are interested, you can save battery and gain autonomy. We have come to have the iPhone, giving it normal use, almost a day and a half without charging.
