User Topic: iphone 4s charge

Since SI is my source for anything I was wondering if any of you could help me with this.

I have the iphone 4s and the charge runs down very, very quickly. For example, last night when I went to bed it was on 40% and when I woke up it was down to 1% charge without being used at all.

Got it back up to 100% and have been using it a lot this morning for texts and emails but it's already down to 40%. I have been on it, but should it be that quick to go down?

I feel like I'm constantly charging it. I use my phone for work a lot so it can be a problem.

Sounds like you have aps running in the background.

Make sure you close them when done with them.

I will add to this. I have a 4s. Nothing running in the background. Email on push and this still happens. Make sure you do not have Bluetooth enabled as that can drain too.

BUT- iPhones essentially have a battery that lasts for 18-24months. They did a diagnostic at the apple store and my two year old battery is working at about 80% of it max ability. It will go down and down and down from there.

Annoying.

Is that when you slide them up to close them? I do that. I close my bluetooth app when I'm not in the car. What else?

"location services" was known to cause some battery drain in iOS7 which is what it sounds like you have since you are sliding apps up to quit them.

Thanks sunandmoon. I guess I can look into replacing the battery?

Moo, do you know if it's possible to disable the location services?

Sure you can turn off Location services or you can limit it to specific apps like the Maps app.

Goto Settings >> Privacy and then you should see it.

Thanks, I just turned that off. Not even sure what it does anyway so I guess I don't need it.

It's your GPS. So turn it on when you need maps or the compass. Those apps will let you know that it isn't on. Facebook app can use it if you let it for the checking in features.

Aside from the aforementioned tricks, such as fetching instead of pushing, I keep my screen pretty dark. Everything that is turned off is turned off. And with that, in my busy season, I start my day with a full charge and I'm plugging in at 11 am. It is the worst feature of the iphone. I have two alternate charging devices I use when I am on the go and with those, I can make it a full day.

AN, the battery alone cannot be replaced. The phone is one unit. The only thing that can be replaced is the phone itself.

This is another reason I hate Iphones. I have had mine coming up on 2 years, and will be happy to be rid of it when my contract is up.

My H uses his phone continuously for work. For our own business and his real job. It started eating through a charge over half a day, and he basically kept it on a charger whenever he could. It literally got to where it would be at 100% in the morning, and by the time he got to work and answered emails it was dead, (no more than 2 hours). He was told by our carrier (sprint) that he had to take it to the I-phone store, which he did then was told he had to have an appointment, and the next available was in 3 hours despite there being many techs standing around.

He said in 3 hours I will have a different phone, and he did. He now has a Galaxy, and has had it for several months. He seems to like it.

I have used my I phone basically as a tethered device unless I am running around, meaning at my desk it's charging, and at home it's usually on a charger. I went and did shopping for half a day no charger in my car (thanks 16 year old). And it was dead in 4 hours. That was with closing all the apps, and just using it to text.

Wow, I had a feeling it was just that iphones are bad with the charge and was hoping it wasn't a defective phone. H's doesn't go down as quickly but he's on it a lot less than I am.

I also heard that if you charge it before it's real low it can kill the battery life, and I've always done that (paranoid it would run out and I'd miss a work call), so I figured I killed it.

I have a car charger so when I'm on the go I don't have to worry.

Not encouraging but thanks for the info.

The closest Apple store is about an hour and a half from here. DD's phone is acting funky too. Maybe when she's home for break we'll take a ride.

There is an app called Battery Doctor is that is supposed to help. I've used it, but am too flaky to do it consistently.
