Extend Battery Life - Apple® iOS

Note Battery life is measured by standby time and usage time.

  • Standby time is the amount of time the device remains on with no activity.
  • Usage time is based on activity while the device is on.
  • Data usage (e.g., web browsing, apps, streaming, etc.) reduces usage time.
  • Verify the Auto-Lock setting. The longer the device waits to Auto-Lock, the longer the screen stays on which drains the battery. For optimal battery life, navigate: SettingsDisplay & Brightness > Auto-Lock > and choose one of the shorter timeframes (30 Seconds or 1 Minute).
