If you need to charge your iPhone but in a hurry, these simple tips could prove to be a real time saver.
Here’s how you can supercharge your iPhone in just five minutes.
Put your phone in Airplane Mode
Putting your iPhone in airplane mode stops it from connecting to Wi-Fi or mobile networks which can be a big drain on your battery.
Turning airplane mode on will mean that your battery will be able to charge faster. You can enable airplane mode by swiping up from the bottom of your screen.
Use genuine Apple wall charger – iPad charger is best
You should always use an official Apple wall charger when charging your iPhone. They are not only safer but offer the best performance during charging.
Also choosing to charge your iPhone with a wall charger as opposed to using USB connected to you computer will help it charge faster.
According to Business Insider, if you want to really speed up charging your iPhone, then use an iPad charger as they have a higher power output than a regular iPhone charger. Be warned though, doing this regularly is likely to damage your iPhone battery over time.
Turn on Low Power Mode
Turning to low power mode will stop background apps unnecessarily draining battery power during charging. You can turn on Low Power Mode by going to Settings > Battery
Remove the case
If you use a case to protect your iPhone, take it off while charging. This will ensure it does not generate excess heat, which will help it charge quicker. Also charging your battery away from hot temperatures or extreme heat will help improve performance.
As Business Insider points out, the results will depend on how old your battery is, how well maintained it is, and whether you have been charging it properly. These tips are also meant for an iPhone 6 or above.
