How To Effectively Charge Your iPhone Faster
1. Put your iPhone in Airplane Mode
When your WiFi, cellular and Bluetooth are on they use power as they’re trying to connect with the internet or other devices. So, you can charge your iPhone faster if you turn these off. The easiest way to turn all of these off at once is to put your iPhone in airplane mode. To do this, swipe up from the bottom of the screen. When the control center opens tap the airplane icon. You’ll notice both the WiFi and Bluetooth icons get grayed out as they turn off.
2. Activate Low Battery Power
Apple introduced a feature that allows you to conserve battery life. When you activate low power mode some services are turned off or restricted to allow the battery to charge faster.
3. Use a Faster Charging Device
Not all charging equipment is created equal. Some charging devices are specifically designed to charge your iPhone faster! I tried a ZUS smart car charger recently.
The company advertises that it charges two devices two times faster than a typical car charger. I’m a data girl and love numbers so I decided to test it myself. For me, the ZUS charged my iPhone almost three times faster than my old car charger! (Source: technobabe.com).
4. Take off your iPhone’s Case
Looking for another way how to charge your iPhone faster? Well, in addition to bringing the iPhone to a location with neutral ambient temperature you can also take the case off your iPhone. The battery will generate heat as it charges and some cases will hold that heat in, reducing the performance of the battery.
5. Lock the Screen and Don’t Use your iPhone While Charging
If you don’t want to turn your iPhone off completely, just stop using it. The iPhone display uses power so keep it locked, with the display off, to help conserve power and charge faster.
