Turn off background motion
One of the newer features on your iPhone is that fancy parallax motion. In English, this refers to the way your iPhone background pans to show more of the photo when you tilt your phone. While a sleek addition to iOS’s design, parallax motion also contributes to a short iPhone battery life. To turn off background motion, go to Settings>General>Accessibility and toggle Reduce Motion to “on”.
Limit your location tracking
One highly useful feature on your iPhone is location monitoring. This feature allows you to use mapping apps, track exercise, check social media platforms, and search for services nearby. While these are all useful smartphone features, constantly refreshing your location keeps your iPhone battery life short. To manage your location tracking, visit Settings>Privacy>Location Services. Here, you can turn off location monitoring altogether, or switch off certain apps one at a time.
