Since the release of iPhone 4, it has been the hottest topic ever and drawn most of the public attention to its newly-added awesome features. Meanwhile, the increasingly powerful functions also bring about other problems. Lots of people around the web are complaining the battery runs down more quickly with iOS 4, though apple promises “up to 7 hours of talk time on 3G and 14 hours of talk time on 2G, standby time of up to 300 hours, up to 10 hours of solid use on Wi-Fi, up to 10 hours of video playback, and 40 hours of audio playback”.

Then, there comes a ton of tips that claims to help increase the iPhone’s battery life, many of which are stupid and absurd in fact. I have talked about the 4 most stupid tips in my last article, like minimize use of location services, turn off push notifications and push mail, turn off 3G, and kill background tasks. These tips are absolutely stupid as they just tell you to turn the awesomeness off, and kill all the interesting features. If you need such great efforts to save battery and lose all the fun, why not just quit iPhone by using a common cell phone?

Fortunately, except those stupid tips, there are plenty things you can do to increase your iPhone’s battery. Now, let me introduce the 4 most practical battery saving tips to you.

By setting auto-lock interval (Settings > General > Auto-Lock), you can save considerable batter power as your iPhone will turn off more quickly after a period of inactivity instead of wasting unnecessary batter power. Auto-lock interval can also save you problems of misprocess.

2. Set display brightness to adjust automatically

You do not need the display blaring all the time, so turn down the brightness to save energy. But there’s a better solution, activating the automatic adjustment setting. After that, your iPhone will automatically dim its display in darker room. That’s also do good to your vision besides energy saving.

3. Use an iPhone protective case

Heat can degrade performance of the iPhone battery, so you’d better keep the iPhone out of the sun or a hot car. And to use a protective case is also a good choice. It can protect your iPhone from being brightly beat upon and scratches as well.

4. Charge wherever you can

The reason why we choose iPhone is because its awesome features, so we need not to turn off those interesting and powerful programs we like only to save energy. We can have enough chargers at different places, one at home, another at work and another in car. If you are out for a trip, you can prepare with one or two additional batteries for contingent use. This is the easiest way to keep your iPhone of both awesomeness and full energy.
