How to Maximize Battery Life on Your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch

So you got yourself a shiny new Apple device, but you’re so addicted that the battery is running out way too soon – what you need is a couple of tips to keep your battery running for as long as possible, and we’ve got them here.

  • Keep Your iDevice Out of the Sun
  • Reduce the Screen Brightness … If you keep the screen at maximum brightness all the time, you’re wasting a lot of battery life—and the screens these days are so bright anyway that you don’t really need to, especially at night.

  • Use Airplane Mode When You Don’t Need Internet (iPad/iPhone)  … If you’re busy spending the next 8 hours playing Angry Birds, there might not be a good reason to have internet access, so you can consider using Airplane Mode.

  • Use Wi-Fi Instead of 3G 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.

  • Reduce or Eliminate Mail & Calendar Checking … If you’ve got a bunch of email, calendar, or contact accounts configured, and they are all being checked and downloading email on a regular basis, you’ll be draining the battery an awful lot faster than you need to.
