By reading this article, you will learn how to calibrate your iPhone battery with these simple steps. The battery calibration procedure could help you have a better battery life, perhaps not like that of a new smartphone, but much longer.
Apple is currently creating increasingly feature-rich models, with features difficult to find in other terminals, but unfortunately, these are at the expense of battery life, more functions, more work to be done. Basically what we’re going to do together is the battery calibration procedure.
Calibration is a simple procedure that can restore iPhone battery management. This eliminates any charging problems (or incorrect indications regarding the percentage of charge) definitively. So let’s read how to calibrate the battery of your iPhone?
Here are some of the main reasons why you should calibrate your iPhone battery:
- Helps condition the battery.
- It also allows iOS to calculate the battery percentage more accurately.
- Battery calibration is also good for battery life.
Regular discharging and charging of the iPhone battery maintains the flow of ions moving through the battery. Due to the properties of the material,lithium-ion batteries require constant use to maintain maximum performance. Therefore, we recommend that you regularly discharge and recharge the battery.
What are the prerequisites for iPhone battery calibration?
Before you start calibrating your iPhone battery, you need to perform a few steps. Certain features and services must be disabled to ensure minimal energy absorption. You can enable these features at the end of the procedure. Disable the following:
- Location services.
- Background update.
- Lower the screen brightness.
- Turn off automatic updates.
How to calibrate your iPhone battery
- Use your iPhone until it turns off automatically. You can turn on the flashlight, increase the brightness, or stream over the Internet to speed up battery consumption.
- Keep your iPhone at night to further drain the battery.
- Connect your iPhone and wait for it to turn on. Make sure you’re using the Apple charger or one that works with the same amperage and power.
- Turn off your iPhone.
- Let your iPhone charge continuously for 5 hours. However, you wouldn’t see the charge indicator when the iPhone is turned off. So, there is no need to panic, everything is fine.
- While the charging cable is still connected, turn on your iPhone.
- After the iPhone starts, force the iPhone to restart.
- For iPhone 8 series or earlier, press and hold the sleep/wake and home buttons until you see the Apple logo.
- For iPhone X or later, follow these steps: press the volume up button, press the volume down button, hold the sleep/wake button, keep holding until you see the Apple logo.
- After turning on your iPhone, remove the charging cable.
The process remains the same from iPhone 7 to iPhone 11 battery calibration. This method is also applicable to the iPad, iPod Touch, and other lithium-ion battery devices.
If calibration doesn’t help improve battery life, it may be time to replace your iPhone’s battery.
