7. Disable Wi-Fi:If you’re not actively using the Internet, there’s no need for your phone to continuously search for Wi-Fi hotspots. Only use Wi-Fi when you need it. Settings➡Wi-Fi
8. Disable Location Services: You can turn off all location services, which use GPS to tell apps where you are, or customize what apps are allowed to use them. Settings ➡Location Services
9. Auto-Lock: You’re probably used to locking your iPhone by pushing the button on the top, but you can also set the phone to automatically lock itself after a short interval of time—say, one minute. Settings ➡General➡Auto-Lock
10. Disable Equalizer: Equalizer settings are great when you’re listening to music, but turn them off when you’re not playing tunes. Settings ➡Music➡EQ
11. Disable Push Notifications: These notifications, sent from third-party apps to your phone, can be major battery drainers. Disable ones you don’t need, like the Weather Widget. Settings ➡Notifications
12. Disable “Raise to Speak”: This new tool activates Siri when you lift your phone to your ear. Save battery life by turning it off and holding down the home button to access Siri instead. Settings ➡General➡Siri
13. Use Airplane Mode: If you’re somewhere with no signal, like the subway, use Airplane Mode so that your phone will stop trying to find coverage. Settings➡Airplane Mode
14. Disable Vibrate: A phone that both rings and vibrates is redundant. Only use vibrate when you need it, such as in noisy settings when you might not hear your phone ring.
15. Limit Battery Use: Avoid power-intensive tasks like watching movies, browsing the web, and listening to music if you need to conserve your battery.
