ALL iPhone users should check their phones – you may be making some silly mistakes.
We have revealed three of the most common iPhone mistakes.
Does not update iOS
Eventually, Apple will stop supporting older models with updates, ie very bad news if you are affected.
These updates include important security updates that fix serious issues with your device.
You should always install the latest update as soon as possible.
So if you can not get those updates, you run a high risk of being hacked.
The current iOS 15.5 supports phones all the way back to the iPhone 6S and iPhone SE (1st generation).
Check for the latest updates in Settings> General> Software Update.
If you are not, it is highly recommended that you upgrade your iPhone to a newer model that still receives security updates.
Sweep paper closed
It is generally recommended that you swipe your apps closed to improve performance.
But this is a myth: you should only force quit an app if it’s stopped working.
In fact, you’re much better off not having apps closed if you want yours iPhone to function properly.
To begin with, it drains battery life faster if you close all your apps all the time.
And closes appar may make them take even longer to recharge next time.
This is because the iPhone is designed in a special way to avoid getting stuck in apps.
“When your recently used apps are displayed, the apps are not open, but they are in standby mode to help you navigate and do more things.” Appleexplained.
“You should force an app to close only if it does not respond.”
Part of the problem is that it’s tempting to think that apps in your “carousel” are running.
But they actually are frozen by your iPhoneso that they do not drain resources while doing other things.
Uses incorrect charging settings
Your iPhone battery will hold less charge as it ages, but you can help limit this deterioration.
“A battery’s life expectancy is related to its chemical age, which is more than just the time since the battery was installed,” said Apple.
“The chemical age of a battery depends on a complex combination of several factors, including temperature history and charge pattern.
All rechargeable batteries are consumable components that become less efficient as they age chemically.
“As lithium-ion batteries age chemically, the amount of charge they can hold decreases, resulting in reduced battery life and reduced peak performance.”
This is where optimized battery charging comes in, in an attempt to extend the life of your iPhone.
You can limit the wear and tear on your battery by reducing the time your iPhone is fully charged.
This ultimately means that your battery lasts longer.
So when Optimized battery charging is active, your iPhone will delay charging to over 80% – but only in specific situations.
Your iPhone will learn about your daily charging routine to do this.
Go to Settings> Battery> Battery health> Optimized battery charging.
