Have you ever played a couple of games on your iPod Touch whilst listening to music? Well chances are you have – and I bet just like me and countless other iPod touch / iPhone users that you depleted your battery life immensely. Thats one of the problems faced with businesses like Apple and HTC when fitting a large touch sensitive backlit display – it uses immense amounts of power. Here are some of the best ways to save your iPod Touch battery life:
You should always turn off the wifi feature if your not using it or if your out of the house. The wifi drains up the battery really quick. It’s probably the main reason why your iphone/ipod dies so quickly, and so turning it off is a must.
Use the auto brightness feature. The auto brightness feature will save the battery by dimming the light and brightening it when necessary. Another thing to do is if you have say 20% or 15% battery left then turn the brightness right down if just listening to music because although the iPod Touch screens are not the greatest in the world, they are visible in low brightness settings.
Make sure your music is paused when your not using your ipod/iphone. Do not let the music keep playing when you are not using it, so when you go to the supermarket and take your earphones out pause your song, it’ll help a lot and besides whats the point in something playing if your not listening?
Use the auto lock feature. If you can use the minute auto lock, it will set the screen dark and lets you listen to your songs with out draining the battery from the screen. Or if you do not use the auto lock, then lock your iPod Touch straight away after using it to completely dim the screen.
Keep your ipod/iphone in room temperature. A nice cool room will help the batteries live forever, and you should never allow your iPod Touch to come under direct contact with sunlight as it will superheat your device (it does have a metal back you know).
So there we go, a few tips to help you make the most of your ipod Touch or iPhone – if you have any more then please feel free to comment us your tips below to help out other fellow iPod / iPhone users in the UK.
