Yesterday we released a short blog on 5 ways that you can improve your iPhone battery life with iOS 11. We figured that you may already know some of the things covered in that blog, so, today, I'm going to give you 3 more ways that you can improve your iPhone's battery life with iOS 11.

Whether you've updated to iOS 11 or are still waiting a couple more days until you upgrade, now would be the perfect time to get to grips with some of the battery saving tips that you can implement in iOS 11 on your iPhone.

Let's take a look at 3 more ways that you can improve your iPhone's battery life:

1. Turn down your Flashlight in iOS 11

So this may not be a new feature in iOS 11, but it's something that I recently discovered. You're able to adjust the iPhone's flashlight.


Quite simply, if you swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone to reveal the Control Center, you're able to 3D Touch or long-press on the flashlight button to reveal a slider-like setting that you can use to control how bright your flashlight is.

2. Don't push, fetch less mail

So this isn't exactly a new feature in iOS 11, but it's one that will save you a lot of power on the iPhone and you likely haven't even realised it.

Urgent messages likely arrive over text nowadays which means you don't need emails to be pushed constantly to your device all of the time. You can change this setting and fetch less mail to save battery.

To do so, you can adjust iOS 11 Push and Fetch settings by heading to: Settings > Accounts & Passwords > Fetch New Data and change it to Manually.

3. Adjust your Auto-Lock settings

If you're concerned about privacy on your iPhone, or just want to improve battery life, you can set your auto-lock settings to lock your phone and turn off the display earlier when not using your iPhone.

Auto-Lock will shut down your iPhone display after it has been inactive for a period of time.

To change Auto-Lock settings in iOS 11 on your iPhone go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Auto-Lock and set your Auto-Lock to be something more appropriate such as 2 Minutes, or even consider 30 seconds.

Improving battery life in iOS 11

In conclusion, with these 3 more ways to improve iPhone battery life in iOS 11 along with our additional 5 ways, I'm sure you'll be saving a lot more battery on your new iPhone.
