One of the most common complaints from the Apple users is the time the Apple devices can work without recharging. Whether it is a MacBook, iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, most users still think that battery life of these devices is insufficient. And taking into consideration the fact that new iPhone 5 is rumored to have a 1440 mAh battery, which is only 10 mAh larger than 1430 mAh battery inside iPhone 4S, the problem will remain for at least another generation of iPhones (though we’ll know that for sure on September, 12).
First of all, it should be mentioned that battery life directly depends on the way you use your device. iPhone that you use for checking mail and short business calls will live from one charging much longer than the one that is used for filming videos and surfing the Internet via Wi-Fi. So the first thing you should do is to think about the way you use your device before complaining about the problems with battery.
If you’re still sure that the problem exists then one of the possible way outs may be the calibration of the battery. In order to do battery calibration you should follow the instruction presented below which consists of three simple steps:
Step 1. Fully discharge the battery of your device. Use it until it switches off automatically.
Step 2. Connect your device to a charger and wait until the charge level will reach 100%. During charging do not disconnect the cable and don’t use your device.
Step 3. For iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch you have to perform reset action by pressing simultaneously Home and Wake/Sleep buttons and don’t loosen them until you see Apple logo on the screen.
You should repeat this procedure once in two or three months, thus making the battery of your iDevice to work longer.
