iPhone 3G Battery Saving Tips

iPhone 3G Battery Saving Tips

Following its previous hit (read iPod) that has revolutionized the portable music player now Apple has also decided to join the mobile-phones market.
Here comes the impressive iPhone 3G with its Multi-Touch capability. With elegant design and massive built-in features, Apple has once again successfully become the trendsetter. But it also come with some flaws mainly for the battery issues. For some users, the capacity of iPhone 3G battery is still not sufficient to cope with all of its power-hungry features. As a 'on-the-go' gadget that combines communication, Internet, and entertainment functions, battery here holds critical role to enjoy this gadget to the max. The battery duration which can last for only 1.5 day is a bit annoying for most users.

Heard from its name, you should've known that this latest version comes with 3G support as its new feature. As 3G excels in Internet speed, browsing becomes faster and more enjoyable. But, its battery capacity really lets you down here, you can't browse or download for too long before the battery finally runs out of power. So, in this post I'll give some tips and tricks to prolong your iPhone 3G battery:

1. Lower the brightness level

iPhone 3G has brighter screen compared to its elder brother. That's a nice upgrade, but it consumes more power as well. So, try to lower the brightness level if you are inside a brightly-lit room.

Go to Settings>Brightness

Turn off auto brightness, then slowly slide down the level till everything still visible on screen. I think 10% brightness is still possible.

2.Turn off WiFi and 3G if not used

One of the advantages of iPhone 3G is its 3G and WiFi capability to browse in a hotspot area.
But, that does not mean you should activate it all the time. Though it is idle, battery energy will still be used to stabilize the phone network. This become worse in poor 3G signal area.

Go to Settings>General>Network

3. Turn off vibration on games

Though it gives you more realistic and thrilled experience, vibration will further consumes more energy. Try to turn off that feature when playing games.

4. Download and purchase applications through iTunes on PC

Though it is viable to do it directly on phone, try to search and download the applications on your PC. Since it will consume much energy to browse and download the data.
Hence, it's better to download via PC and then manually synchronize from iTunes to your iPhone 3G.

5. Set auto-lock function in minimum time

This is used as precaution only. So, it's not possible to activate some features accidentally when you forgot to lock the screen.

Go to Settings>General>Auto-Lock

6. Turn off Push Data

Turn off to reduce energy consumption. Don't worry! You can still fetch the data per time interval.

Go to Settings>Fetch New Data

7. Charge iPhone via PC

You can charge iPhone by connecting to USB port without synchronizing it. Or if you have a car charger, charge it when you are driving.

As you should know, the battery on iPhone is difficult to be replaced by own effort. So hopefully above tips and tricks can help you to maximize your iPhone 3G.
