★Fantastische spaar-je-iPhone-accu-tip:

One major reason your battery could be draining too quickly is poor cellular service. When the iPhone detects that you are in a place of low signal, it will increase the power to the antenna in order to stay connected enough to receive calls (primarily) and maintain a data connection.

This will destroy your battery life if you are constantly in a location with 1 bar or no service at all.

Enable Airplane Mode in Areas of Poor Cellular Service

More Battery Saving Tricks
We’ve covered more generic battery saving tips several times before, you can read more for the iPhone here and here, or more iPad specific adjustments here if interested, but the general advice remains:

  • Disable Bluetooth
  • Turn off unnecessary Notifications, and don’t allow Push
  • Use Fetch for Mail rather than Push
  • Lock the iPhone when not in use to reduce the time the screen is on
  • Disable keyboard clicks
  • Disable LTE and use a slower data network
  • Reset to factory defaults and restore from backup – extreme but can work in some scenario
