Apple iPhone owners have complained about their batteries life being dramatically shortened after updating to the latest operating system, iOS 14.1. The new look of the iOS 14 operating system is getting a lot of attention. Simply because they discovered a handful of hidden features, especially the unique beautiful home screen widgets you can customize to enrich your experience as well as give latest information for instance.
Unfortunately, even Apple released iOS 14.1 with bug fixes for home screen widgets, owners leaving complain of severe battery drain. For older series like iPhone 6s, it is highly recommended to not use bunch of widgets. Because, widgets keep updating its data that kill your battery the fastest.
Besides widgets, screen brightness also affect battery life. A dim screen uses less power. You can adjust the screen brightness manually, but don’t use the Auto-brightness, or simply drag the slider to adjust the brightness.
TCC Rocks defines another simple way to save your battery life is using Low Power Mode. When Low Power Mode is on, your iPhone will last longer before you need to charge, but some features might take longer to update or complete including automatic app download, e-mail, and background app (widgets). Go to Setting -> Battery -> Low Power Mode.
