I’ve been having mucho issues with my iPhone recently– mostly having to do with piss poor battery life.
I’m having to charge my phone at least twice a day in order to use it. I’ll be down to 23% battery life by lunchtime. Heck, I’m currently at 93% and all I’ve done so far is rearrange some icons, set wallpaper pics, and started typing this post!!
I’ve been scouring the inter webs and reading forums about iPhone battery life and what to do to improve it. So far I’ve rebooted my phone, and done two complete restores (one from a backup and one as a completely new phone setup– aka nuclear option).
I have also gone through numerous settings and turned off the following:
– parallax feature
– Siri raise to speak
– almost all location services
– almost all system services
– no passbook
– no photo streaming
– no Safari iCloud crap
– no auto app updates
– no music equalizer
And I’m sure there are some other things I’ve disabled as we’ll, all in the quest for better battery life. All to no avail– so far.
(My battery is now down to 88% and all I’ve done is type this and send my dad two text messages).
I realize it could actually be a bad battery, but before I go a battery replacement route, I was hoping to try everything else. Perhaps it’s something I’ve overlooked? Something simple that’s just sucking a ridiculous amount of juice like some sort of juice-sucking thing.
Maybe a “Genius Bar” appointment is in order?
Any other ideas?
P.S. If it is a battery, I’m gonna try to replace the thing myself. I’ve watched the online tutorials and read how to do it. It seems doable, and better than shipping the phone off and spending a shitload to do it.
P.P.S. Now at 84%.
