If you have recently upgraded your iPhone to ios 6, we have got some tips to enhance the duration of battery life.
The first thing you have to do with your iPhone that dim the display a bit. Now the iPhone 5 display is the brightest, so you have quite a bit of wiggle room. Head to Settings>Brightness>Wallpaper, as this is the place to choose brightness. If you lower the brightness, you’ll probably get a whole day out of your iPhone 5 – don’t forget you now have a larger screen. Turning off auto-brightness and dimming as much as possible worked the best, although outdoor viewing was difficult.

Another handy tip is to keep all your apps updated. Older apps might not be as efficient, and now iOS 6 and the iPhone 5 are out, most developers will be optimizing their existing apps.

The iPhone 5 is great at multi-tasking, but open apps drain that battery, especially if they involve GPS. If you’re vigilant about turning unused apps off, you can save battery. Just hold down the home button until you see the multi-tasking bar pop up. Hold down the app you need to close and it will jiggle – choose the close icon. If you wanted to do this with all the apps you need to close, you’ll be saving quite a bit. When you’re done, press the home button again.

Turning on the auto-lock function of the iPhone 5 is a good idea, too, as the handset will turn off after the set time.

Last but not least, turn off radios if you’re not using them, as well as Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth. Go to Settings to do this. While the iPhone 5 is clever at switching from WiFi to 3G depending on your location, leaving them all on does in fact drain your iPhone 5.
