iOS 13 is now available as a beta after the unveiling event at this year’s WWDC. Apple’s next-gen iOS won’t bring about a significant change, but it has some of the features we have been demanding for years, such as Dark mode, Look Around in Maps, smarter Photos app, and many more.
Like any other beta releases, the iOS 13 beta is a little bit buggy, which may ruin your experience. In reality, we have heard some of the problems iPhone owners are facing with iOS 13 beta and one such problem is the rapid battery drain.
In reality, this is one of the major concerns when it comes to Apple iOS as it pops up every time Apple releases a new software update. If you are experiencing the battery issues with iOS 13, then we are willing to help.
In this guide, we will show you how to improve battery life in iOS 13. Before we begin, iOS 13 beta is not stable and buggy in its current form, so we recommend you install it on a secondary device.
Force Quit Your Apps
Having too many apps running in the background is a big reason why battery runs out rapidly on your iPhone. So, we recommend you close all the apps in the background to save some power. To do this, just simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen and then swipe up on any app card to close it. Once you are done, check if the problem is fixed. If not, make sure you read on.
Enable Dark Mode
Dark mode in iOS 13 works across the entire operating system, from app icons to settings. However, dark mode is not just about turning everything into a darker color as it also helps to save some battery life. To enable, launch the Settings app, then select Display & Brightness and hit Dark Mode. Now just simply select Dark Mode.
Low Power Mode
Low-Power mode has been around since the days of iOS 10. Once enabled, it automatically turns off background activities and reduces animations to save some power. To turn it on, open Settings, then select Battery and turn on the switch for Low Power Mode.
Try Turning Off Wifi and Bluetooth
Keeping Wifi and Bluetooth enabled all the time takes up a considerable amount of battery power. So, we recommend you turn off Wifi or Bluetooth when you no longer need. To do this, open Settings, select Wifi/Bluetooth and turn it off and then turn it back on.
Turn Off Automatic Downloads
When you download an app or service on your iPhone, then it automatically shows up on a paired device like Apple Watch. While this comes in handy, one major drawback is that it consumes a lot of your iPhone’s power. To turn it off, open the Settings app on your device, then tap General, and hit iTunes & App Store. From here, turn off the switch for Automatic Downloads.
Reset All Settings
If the problem still persists, then try resetting your device’s settings. Following this method, all of your current settings will be reset to their factory state, while preserving your files. To do this, open the Settings app from your home screen, then select General and hit Reset. From here, tap on Reset All Settings.
Downgrade to iOS 12
If none of the above solutions works for you, then the last solution is to go back to iOS 12. The easiest way to downgrade from iOS 13 is using the Recovery Mode. However, following this method, all of your data will be removed, so make sure you have a backup of your device.
To do this, launch iTunes on your Mac, and then put your iPhone into Recovery mode. When you are in this mode, you will get the options to Restore or Update your device. Select the Restore button to wipe out your device and install the latest iOS 12 version.
