“Hello, Since I updated my iPhone 6 to iOS 8.2, the Battery Life is very very short. Without doing nearly nothing with the Phone, the Battery is empty after 10-12 Hours. Any Idea? iOS told me Safari was using 60% of the Battery, but i didn’t use it. I already deactivated the Health Kit. Thanks in advance! iPhone 6, iOS 8.2”
Battery life problem becomes a common problem whenever iOS system is upgraded. So does iOS 8.2. I have read many posts in Apple Community that most people ask for tips to save battery life after update to iOS 8.2. Here, luckily, I have collected some tips to improve your battery life after update to iOS 8.2.
#1 Disable iCloud Keychain
Some iPhone users have reported that disabling iCloud Keychain has helped them get rid of abnormal battery drain. If you find you don’t use or don’t need iCloud Keychain it might be worth disabling to see if your batter life becomes longer.
To disable iCloud Keychain, go to Settings -> iCloud -> Keychain -> Toggle iCloud Keychain off.
#2 Shut Off Fitness Tracking Feature
Fitness tracking is new to iOS 8.2 and could be a culprit in poor battery life. Here’s some steps for turning the new feature off.
Go to Settings>Privacy>Motion and Fitness>Toggle “Fitness Tracking” to Off
#3 Restart or Reset Your iPhone or iPad
Another strategy some users have tried when quick battery drain suddenly occurred or their devices started getting really hot, is to restart or reset the device.
You can restart the device by holding down the power button, swiping to turn it off, and then hold the power button down to turn the device back on.
You can reset your iPhone or iPad by holding the home button and the power button for about 10 seconds.
#4 Reset Device Settings
Resetting you device settings is a fix that seems to help with a variety of update problems from Messages not sending to Bluetooth and cellular signal problems.
To reset your settings, go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset All Settings and then enter your passcode when prompted. This will take a few minutes to complete and will return all setting to default, but will not remove or lose any of your data.
#5 Turn off Location Services
One way to save battery life in iOS 8.2 is to turn off location services for apps you don’t need it on. This will slow battery drain on your iPhone, iPad or iPod.
GPS requires a huge amount of power, especially for things like turn-by-turn navigation and Find my Friends tracking, but they can also suck energy when used in other apps as well. To save on some energy, turn off location services for all apps in which it is not essential. This can be done by going to Settings, Privacy, Location Services, and turn off any app and system service you really don’t need tracking or using your location.
