You recognize that your iPhone battery discharges very fast dispite you have a connected charge cable.

There could be many reasons:

  • Wrong charge cable
  • Additional Bluetooth/ WiFi activated
  • Parallel used apps/ services
  • Old firmware


  • If you use a headset you can activate the screen lock. So you get only the navigation advices via headset and the screen will not discharge the battery.

  • You should deactivate Bluetooth and/or WiFi if not needed.

  • Deactivate all apps in the background (e.g. iTunes) if not needed.
