IPHONE users were stunned when they discovered a bizarre hidden setting was secretly reducing their battery life.
If you notice that your phone is draining faster than normal or never seems to have enough charge, this tip might help you.
iPhone and iPad technology includes Siri, the voice command system that registers when you speak without having to pick up the phone.
While this may be a useful feature, it also means that the device is always running software that can capture the sound of your words.
This is done through the so-called active listener function, which can be deactivated in the settings.
This feature eats up battery life—and if you rarely use Siri, it may be using up valuable charge for no good reason.
To turn off active listening, go to Settings and click Siri & Search.
At the top of the following menu, iPhone and iPad users will see an option that says “Listen for “Hey Siri.”
Just swipe to turn this off. You can enable Press Side Button for Siri instead.
While the feature may not be as draining on your battery as screen brightness or mobile data usage, it still helps conserve it.
This happens because people are just now realizing another simple trick that can maximize battery life – avoiding a common mistake you make at night.
Another cell phone expert has revealed another secret iPhone setting that also drains the battery.
Simply go to “General” in Settings and then “Background App Refresh”.
Next, select Background App Refresh again and make sure the option is disabled.
