How to Improve Battery on your iPad

Battery On iPad

Battery is always the main component in any device be it a smartphone, iPhone, Android or an iPad. Battery is the life giver to these hand sets. When the battery goes low your set seem to die off and stops responding. It is therefore necessary to keep an eye on the battery and also try to follow the given ways as what to do or what not to do to improve its condition.

Sun and heat kill your battery life

You must have read this instruction in the handbook or brochure that comes along with any iPad or iPhone device at the time of purchase. This is very important thing to take care of.

Never leave your iPad outside under the direct sunlight or in a hot car as heat kills batteries faster than any other factor. iPad will not charge as effectively if exposed to heat. Also it might get damaged and you will have to pay for it to be replaced.

No need to increase the Screen Brightness

Keeping the screen brightness to the maximum will waste lot of battery life. Also the screens of these devices are bright and colourful and one doesn’t need to increase the brightness. If you have done it then go to settings- brightness and wallpaper and adjust the default level of brightness keep as low as 30% most of the time.

Make Sure the Screen Locks Quickly

Look that your screen turn off quickly when you’re not using it. Go to General -> Auto-Lock to set the screen lock to happen as quickly as your device will let you. This makes a big difference if you are always picking up your phone and putting it back into your pocket without turning the display off.

Use Airplane Mode When You Don’t Need Internet

While travelling in a remote area where iPad keeps on searching your location and thus drains your battery or playing a game or 8 hours of peaceful sleep, where you do not need internet access then consider using Airplane Mode, which turns off both Wi-Fi and the regular wireless radio. This will save much of battery life.

Airplane Mode

Go to Settings and flip the Airplane Mode switch right up at the top of the screen.

Use Wi-Fi Instead of 3G/4G if Possible

According to Apple, the iPad will get 10 hours of battery life under regular use with Wi-Fi enabled, but will only get 9 hours using 3G—the iPhone gets 6 for 3G and 10 for Wi-Fi. Of course, if you’re heavily using the Wi-Fi, you’ll still be draining the battery. Wi-Fi is better than 3G for battery life.

You can enable Wi-Fi under Settings -> Wi-Fi, and then pick the network you’d like to connect to.

Wifi Networks

Mail and Calendar Check

This is the one area where most of the battery is being used all the time. The device keeps on If checking email, calendar, or contact accounts configured in your iPad on a regular basis and downloading the emails.

You can stop these at your quiet hours.  Go to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Fetch New Data and change the setting to the least frequent check possible. If you don’t use it often, you can just turn Push off entirely and then manually check when you need to.

Remove Push Notifications

If you don’t need notifications from Linkedin and Twitter all the time or from any other app you turn these off one-by-one, or turn off Push entirely by heading into Settings -> Notifications, and save a bit of extra battery life since your device won’t be pulling in data for those applications anymore.

Push Notifications

Reduce System Sounds

Small but considerable amount of battery can be improved by reducing or removing system sounds. Go into Settings -> General -> Sounds to change them.

Disable Location Services

If you don’t really need the location services, you can disable them to save some battery life. Go to Settings -> General and flip the Location Services setting to off.

Location Services

Disable Bluetooth If You Don’t Need It

If you don’t use a Bluetooth headset or keyboard, you should keep the Bluetooth radio disabled to save some extra battery life. For this go to Settings -> General -> Bluetooth to flip it on or off.


Disable Vibrate Feature in Games

Many games that you love to play on your iPad have vibrate feature, you can turn that off to save some battery life. This mostly matters if the game heavily uses it, and you’ll need to change the setting for the game. A heavy multimedia game actually kill your battery very quickly.

Charge and Discharge Your Battery Regularly

You need to keep your iPad fully discharged and recharged to operate at maximum efficiency and keep the battery from dying. Never store the device with a dead battery, as that can also cause the battery to lose charge capability but if in any case your battery dies, make sure to recharge it quickly.
