Guide & FAQ for iPhone Battery Issues
What to do if you Face iPhone Battery Issues
The iPhone battery technology has evolved a lot since the first couple of iPhone generations. Compared to the previous battery technology, the lithium-ion battery has higher power, is denser, and best of all it lasts longer. However, as amazing as lithium-ion technology is, the chemicals used in the batteries eventually degrade over time. After a few years, as you probably noticed, the battery life begins to shorten and thus you have to charge your iPhone more often. What many people don't realize, is that the performance of the iPhone also drops along with the battery life.
The first thing to do if you're noticing battery problems is to check the "Battery Health" which can be found in your iPhone Settings:
Click on the Settings application
Scroll down and look for the Battery
Tap on the Battery Health
From there you will see "Important Battery Message". It will tell you if your battery is in Good Condition or not. If it states "Your battery's health is significantly degraded. An Apple Service Provider Can replace the battery...", it may explain why you're having battery and performance issues. Thankfully, as an Authorized Apple Service Provider, we can help you with your battery performance. So skip the step of searching, and just contact us about your battery issues.
Here are some more tips if your battery is still in good condition, but still encountering battery issues:
Lower the Brightness:
Your iPhone brightness level can be among one of the major reasons your battery is getting drained rapidly. Try keeping your phone brightness at a low level so that your iPhone battery doesn’t get drained. Generally, you can find the battery section at the control center. For the older iPhones with the home button, swipe up to access the control center. For the newer iPhones (iPhone x and above) swipe from the right top corner to the middle to access the control center. Also, you may want to turn off auto-brightness, since the brightness goes to the maximum when outdoors.
Avoid extreme temperatures:
The iPhone is designed to perform well in a range of ambient temperatures. From Apple, it states the ideal temperature is 16 to 22 Celcius, and avoid temperatures higher than 35 Celcius. Exceeding this temperature can permanently damage battery capacity. On the flip side, very cold temperatures may decrease battery life, but this is only temporary. Once the temperature goes back to normal, you will notice the performance will follow suit. So to sum everything up, try to keep your phone cooler and don't let it get too hot.
Locate which Apps are running
Closing all your apps doesn't save battery life. However, there are certain apps that use a tremendous amount of battery life. These apps are checking constantly for information in the background, even when you're not using the apps. Simply go to "Settings" and choose "Battery": scroll down and you will see a list of the apps that use the most battery. You most likely want to close those apps when you are not using them.
Turn off the vibration feature:
If you keep your phone on the vibrate function, such things as frequent push notifications can start to wear down a small amount of your battery. To avoid this, you can either turn off your vibration in the iPhone settings or turn off your notifications. We recommend just turning off your vibrations.
Close the Number of Widgets:
Widgets allow you quick access to the application for information that you are seeking, but it is also true that the more widgets you add, the more battery drain it can cause. It is advisable to keep only the applications on the widget that are used more often on a day-to-day basis.
Swipe all the way left or right to the home screen
Click on (-) on the app and remove the widget that you wish to remove
Lastly, click on Done after you are done removing the widgets.
Turn off Location Tracking & Background App refresh:
Triggering a location update and sending data to apple uses up your iPhone's resources even when you are not using it. The best is to change your location services from "Always" to "While Using the App". The same applies to background app refresh. It allows the app to check for updates and new content when they are running the background. The Washington Post also discovered that apps are sending out tons of information even when you aren't using your phone. These resources also trickle down your battery life. The best is just to turn off this feature.
Restart your iPhone:
Restarting helps in clearing the cache, improve memory, helps maintain longevity. If your iPhone seems to be glitching or running slow, simply restarting your iPhone can solve your problem.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to get my Battery Replaced?
If we have the battery in stock, your device is eligible for Same Day Repair
However, if we do not, it takes approx 2-4 Days to order the new part and repair it.
Will changing the iPhone battery lose my data?
While losing data when changing batteries is quite rare, we would recommend that you still do a full backup before changing your phone's battery. There is always the case of freak accidents. With such advancements in technology, such as cloud drives, backing up your phone onto iCloud is quite easy. Simply look for iCloud Backup on your phone's settings and make sure you're not using cellular data to backup. If you don't have enough storage on iCloud you can also backup on your Mac or PC as well, which we highly recommend and prefer.
How do you know your iPhone battery needs a replacement?
If your battery needs a replacement, you will probably notice in its performance. It's just not functioning the same as when you first bought it. The most common noticeable issue is that the battery drains much faster even after charging it fully. The others would be slow-performing phones, or the phone getting real hot easily. If you noticed any lag in your phone or quick battery use, simply just check the "battery health" in the settings menu. From there, the phone can tell you if it's time to replace the battery.
Does replacing the iPhone battery better the performance?
If you are facing issues such as a quick battery drain or the phone starting to slow down, then the battery replacement might help solve those issues. However, there can be other reasons your phone may be slow, not just the battery. So it's best to take it for diagnostics first to make sure. Sometimes it can be another component inside the phone that is causing the problem or a software issue. If it is a battery issue though, changing to a new battery will definitely improve the battery life and performance of your phone.
