Turn off 3G to save your iPhone battery
You know the situation: it’s not even midnight and you’re waiting from a call from the girl you just met in the last bar, and your iPhone battery reads 20% and flicks red. Over the past couple of years I’ve worked out a list of 10 key adjustments to ensure you can get the most out of your iPhone battery.
The most under-utilised is turning off your 3G – saves heaps of battery. And will help you at your next festival, next meeting or next road trip. Also – not listed is: buy a watch! And stop using your iPhone as a watch and turning it on and off all the time!
