We use our phones for everything these days, from snapping photos to browsing the web, watching videos, and even making the occasional phone call.
All that activity can definitely drain your battery quickly, but luckily there are a few practices that can at the very least help you get the most out of your remaining juice.
Reduce the number of notifications that appear on your lock screen.
Lock screen notifications help you see all of your new alerts quickly, but they can also take a toll on your battery life. If you're getting notifications on your lock screen that you don't need to necessarily see right away, head over to Settings > Notifications. From there, you can tap each app and decide whether or not you want notifications from that app on your lock screen.
See which apps are draining the most battery life, and delete them if you don't need them.
If you dig around in the settings menu, you can see which apps drain the most power. Just tap Settings > General > Usage > Battery Usage. Then, you'll see a list of all the apps you've used in the last day and how much of your phone's battery they've been using.
Turn the screen brightness down.
This is really the first thing you should do if you're low on battery. Simply swipe up from the bottom of your screen and adjust the brightness slider accordingly.
