4 phone charging myths you thought were real

A huge number of the population has got smartphones, and with the intense daily usage, they need to be charged. Users end up with chargers in the car, office and at home constantly charging the phone. This has led to the emergence of a number of myths, and some of them have taken a hold of the society. Here are 5 such myths debunked. Overnight charging kills the battery This is one common myth that has gotten to every household. However, it’s not entirely true.

Phones are smarter than you think and can tell when the battery is full. When plugged in, these smartphones stop charging and prevent the battery from being in use. This then prevents them from dying out. Let your phone die out completely before charging it again This is another widespread myth with no basis whatsoever. The worst part about this myth is that it does more harm than good. Letting your phone get to 0% before plugging it in makes it even more unstable. Here’s the thing, your phone has got a finite number of charge cycles so you really shouldn’t let it get to 0% as that subtracts a cycle of the count.

Quick and simple tips to save your iPhone battery life

Yes, our beloved smartphones, powerful processors and ingenious designs. However, one thing they all have in common is their limited battery life. Having a phone go for a whole day without the need to charge it is always marvelled at. And most phones can’t even get that far. Things get a lot worse for the gamers and intensive phone users. If you’re sick of watching your iPhone battery drain out by the evening, then here are some good practices that would really improve your phone’s battery life.   Enable Wi-Fi assist Yes, Wi-Fi is everybody’s best friend, but sometimes, it can take your battery power down and fast. Low Wi-Fi signals cause the phone to really struggle in maintaining the signal and end up draining the battery in a much shorter period. Wi-Fi assist cuts off access to low-signal Wi-Fi hotspots and enables your data usage instead. Only do this is you’ve got a data plan that you don’t mind using since enabling Wi-Fi assist causes a lot more data usage. Head over to Settings > Cellular and enable the option here.   Go to low power mode This is one of those features that’s hardly used in an iPhone. The low power mode converts your phone into an energy saving machine, only using the most important features you need to get up and running. Whenever your phone gets to 20%, this mode is activated and you’ll experience a much longer lasting battery life. Simply go to Settings > Battery and switch it on.   Turn on auto-brightness Another awesome feature is the auto brightness. People are often oblivious...
