In today’s networked environments, many consumers invest heavily in their preferred smartphone. We rely on smartphone applications to be more productive throughout our work and personal lives.
After owning several different smartphones throughout the years, I’ve found that my battery life tends to dwindle after one to two years of ownership, even for a quality smartphone. Although I’m not too surprised by the decreased battery life thanks to the wear and tear that I constantly put my phone through, it’s easy to get frustrated about the longevity of my battery life.
With that said, there’s several different solutions to help manage our smartphone’s battery life more efficiently. In this article, we’ll take a look at free battery saving apps that you can find in the Apple App Store.
This free app for iPhone provides you with a status update of your phone’s battery life. When installed on my own iPhone, the app was able to clean 14 MBs of data for better performance. The app also provides tips for potential settings that can be modified to enhance your phone’s battery life. As a plus, the apple includes an optimization task, where it can significantly reduce your memory usage, saving precious battery life. In my case, Battery Doctor narrowed my memory usage down from over 90 percent to 34 percent. Download Battery Doctor for iPhone.
