Phone performance, battery lifespan & battery life by Casphone

Get the most out of your iPhone

We find sudden, unexpected shutdowns unacceptable, especially when we miss opportunities- losing a call, miss taking a picture or having any phone experience interrupted.
This is often noticeable in chemically aged batteries that are in a low state of charge. While “battery life” refers to the amount of time a device runs before it needs to be recharged, “battery lifespan” is the amount of time a battery lasts until it needs to be replaced. A battery’s lifespan is related to its “chemical age,” which includes different factors, such as the number of charge cycles and how it was cared for. iPhone batteries use lithium-ion technology which is more efficient compared to traditional batteries, and replacing your phone battery is increasingly a seamless process at reputable stores.
Meanwhile, here are some things you can do to optimise your phone’s battery performance:
  • Keep iPhone half-charged when it is stored for the long term
  • Avoid direct sun exposure for extended periods of time (iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Apple Watch work best at ambient temperatures (0° to 35° C)
  • Update the system settings regularly (newer algorithms improve power management during peak workloads to avoid unexpected shutdowns)
  • Optimise your phone settings to conserve battery life (toggle on low battery mode, turn on smart lighting, kill background apps when not in use, and switch on GPS only when necessary)
Device use affects the battery performance over its lifespan. For instance, in addition to the number of times a batter has been charged, prolong exposure in hot environments can cause batteries to age faster. Many of us notice when our phone batteries need replacing, but we may hesitate to get them fixed immediately, unless absolutely necessary.
