The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus offer significantly better battery life than their predecessors, especially the phablet model that packs a bigger battery than the smaller 4.7-inch model. However, some hardcore iPhone users might still run out of battery life in certain situations. Luckily for them, there are some simple tricks that can help them recharge the battery a lot faster than before, and Business Insider has posted a short tutorial video on how to do it when you only have a few minutes to charge the handset.
The first thing you have to do to increase your iPhone’s battery recharge speed is to put the device in airplane mode. That way, the iPhone won’t deliver any notifications and it won’t continuously search for carrier signal – these are activities that will use battery life while the handset is charging.
Furthermore, users should remove cases from iPhones while they’re charging, and, if possible, use an iPad charger that can recharge an iPhone faster than its regular charger. Finally, iPhone users shouldn’t turn on the display of the handset while it’s charging.
Using these simple tricks, iPhone owners who have only a few minutes for charging the device will be able to charge it a lot faster. The publication reveals that using these tricks it was able to recharge the battery of the iPhone 6 Plus by 6% during a five-minute charging session, whereas it only obtained 3% of extra life without using these additional steps.
