5 tips to fix iOS 7.1 battery life problems on your iPhone and iPad

iOS 7.1 Battery Improvements

Apple’s new iOS 7.1 software introduced several much-needed fixes and even some awesome new features that you really have to check out. For some users, however, iOS 7.1 also introduced a horrible new problem: shorter battery life. Reports have been mixed, with many users suggesting that iOS 7.1 actually improved battery performance and others complaining that battery life has been reduced dramatically. If you find yourself in the second camp, don’t fret because there are several things you can do to help the situation.

According to a recent report, iOS 7.1 had a pretty clear negative impact on battery life for most Apple devices. But those who have been affected may find some much-needed help in a collection of 5 tips and tricks that iMore compiled in an effort to help readers suffering from iOS 7.1 battery life issues.

First and foremost, the site noted that many users experienced shorter battery life at first after updating to iOS 7, but battery life improved over the course of a few days so it could be too early to panic.

Those looking to be more proactive, however, can start by realizing that changes in their usage patterns might actually be the culprit. In other words, you might be using your iPhone or iPad more frequently now while you search around for new additions, such as this incredible secret feature that lets users control their devices with head gestures.

So, in short, put the phone down.

If you’ve already moved past all of the neat new stuff Apple packed into iOS 7.1 and you’re still seeing shorter battery life, iMore’s second tip is to check for software problems, disable features you’re not using, perform a complete software restore if need be, and even to use airplane mode on occasion as a last resort.

Head over to iMore’s post, which is linked below in our source section, for all of the details.
