iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C Battery Problems Solution

1. Limit Location Services: Apps within iOS 7 will leverage GPS technology to find your location, but for many apps, offering one’s location isn’t necessary, and using the GPS can be a major drain on battery life in the iPhone 5s. It’s easy to turn off all Location Services within iOS 7 -- simply visit the Privacy section of the Settings app -- but you may want some apps to always use your location data, such as Google Maps or Find My iPhone, so you may want to be selective with which apps and services you want to toggle off.

2. Change One's Brightness: This feature tends to impact battery life on iOS more so than any other preference or setting, but brightness settings on the iPhone 5s aren't set by default. It’s good to keep your iPhone 5s dim on a regular basis -- 75 percent brightness usually does the trick -- but you can also modify the iPhone 5s screen’s brightness automatically by toggling “Auto-Brightness” within the “Wallpapers & Brightness” section in Settings.

3. Airplane Mode: Apple designed the iPhone 5s to constantly search for a signal to always stay connected, but when you’re in a bad coverage area -- or if you’re not using your iPhone 5s for Internet purposes at that moment -- it’s always a good idea to turn off the device’s Wi-Fi and cellular usage temporarily by engaging Airplane Mode. The option is accessible via one’s Settings app, but it can also be easily toggled on and off with the new Control Center in iOS 7, which is activated with a simple swipe from the bottom of one’s screen.

4. Close Your Apps: Many people don’t realize how many applications are open on their iPhone 5s, especially since those apps remain open after you click on them until you officially close them. Luckily for iOS 7 users, there’s an easy way to see which apps are open in order to close them. By double-tapping the home button on your iPhone 5s, the new multitasking feature in iOS 7 shows full page previews of all your open apps. Simply scroll horizontally to see all your apps, and close the apps with a simple flick toward the top of the screen. Try to remove any power-hungry apps that use cellular or location data, which most certainly will drain your battery life faster.

5. Turn Off Auto Downloading And App Refreshing: Apple introduced an auto-downloading feature in iOS 7, which allows apps and downloads to automatically occur without user intervention. It’s convenient, sure, but it’s also a drag on battery life in the iPhone 5s. Visit the “Automatic Downloads” setting in the “iTunes & App Store” section of iOS 7 settings to turn this feature off. Similarly, having one’s apps update their data in the background is helpful, but just like auto-downloading, it hurts battery life on iOS 7. Simply visit the “General” section within Settings and switch off all Background App Refresh services, or select which individual apps you want to refresh their data automatically.

Apple said it sold 9 million iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c units in the first three days after the phones’ Sept. 20 release date, and in the company’s Q4 2013 earnings report announced Monday, Apple said the iPhone 5s made major contributions to the 33.8 million total iPhone units sold, which is a record for the September quarter. After its initial release date, Apple last Friday released the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in 35 more countries, and both new phones will arrive in an additional 16 countries on Nov. 1. According to Apple, every new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c customer “will be offered free Personal Setup service, helping them customize their iPhone by setting up email, showing them new apps from the App Store and more,” which will give customers a chance to get their new iPhone purchases up and running before they leave the store. Apple and its authorized resellers and retailers will also help customers learn more about the release of iOS 7, which is built into every iPhone 5s and 5c.
