Like every iPhone user, I know how they love their device, treating it significantly more with extra care than they usually do their other gadgets. So it surprises me to see that many of those iPhone users don’t take care of their devices in case of a new iPhone first charge that can have the most impact over their lasting battery.
iPhone has an internal, lithium-ion rechargeable battery, which currently provides the best performance for your device. Compared with traditional battery technology, lithium-ion batteries are lighter, charge faster, last longer, and have a higher power density for more battery life.
When you get the iPhone set up I believe that you will be instructed to let it finish charging overnight and you should be ready to go. Here I am going to show you anything and everything on New iPhone First Charge which helps you to know all about your iPhone battery, as well as to show you how to get the most juice out of it. However, while these tips can help your iPhone last the entire day, they don’t focus on its battery health and performance over time.
What Is Battery State of health
The Battery SOH (State of Health), is the present state of a battery at any point in time while compared to its ideal conditions and is usually shown in percentage. All types of batteries wear down over time, no matter which device they power. So their health percentage will never be 100% except for the first days the devices are used. This is especially true with devices like the iPhone, which in most cases remain on all day long.
However, battery health can be influenced by many reasons, like weather for example. Yet the most important thing that we can control is the way the battery is charged.
So let’s go through into my articles, where some important points are given on the new iPhone first charge and how to rightly charge your iPhone’s battery every day to preserve its health over time.
Brand New iPhone First Charge
Point 1: A new iPhone first charge is very important. To do this correctly, charge your new iPhone for at least 3 hours before using it for the first time. Please don’t forget to use your USB power adapter & USB Cable.
Note: Do not use your computer’s USB port to charge this for the first time.
Point 2: When your iPhone is fully charged, feel free to use it until its battery is fully drained. Once it is, power off your device for at least 2 hours.
Point 3: After that fully charge your iPhone again without using it, and let it rest for around a couple of hours while it is fully charged before you start using it again.
Charging Your iPhone Everyday Basic
Everyday charging of your iPhone is not as important as its first charge of course, but still affects its battery.
Point 1: Regardless of charging your iPhone during the day, always charge it every night. This helps keep its battery active constantly.
Point 2: Fully charge and drain your iPhone’s battery once every one or two months. In my opinion, this helps calibrate your battery indicator properly.
Point 3: If you have to leave your iPhone in one place for a few hours/days, make sure it is a cool and dry place and that its battery is above 60 percent charged. Also, whenever charging your iPhone, make sure you do it in a cool location.
Point 4: On the same line, try to avoid charging your iPhone while it is in its case, since it will make it hotter, which is not good for the battery at all.
Turn on Optimized Battery Charging
This isn’t specific to the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro, but instead, it’s a feature included in iOS 13. Optimized Battery Charging helps you to learn nightly charging habits, using any set alarms in the Clock app, to properly charge your iPhone’s battery each night and reduce the amount it degrades over time.
More specifically, your iPhone will immediately charge to 80% when you plug-in or place it on a wireless charger when you go to bed. Once it gets to 80%, the battery will stay there until right before you wake up, when it will resume charging to 100%. The result is a healthier charging cycle for your phone’s battery, and a battery that will last longer.
Turn on Battery Optimization in Settings > Battery > Battery Health > Optimized Battery Charging.
Turn on Low Power Mode
Using Low Power Mode can significantly increase the life of the battery charge. Switch to Low Power Mode when your iPhone battery is low, or when you don’t have access to electrical power.
- Go to Settings > Battery.
- Turn on Low Power Mode.
Low Power Mode limits background activity and tunes performance for essential tasks like making and receiving calls, email, and messages; access the Internet; and more.
Note: If your iPhone switches to Low Power Mode automatically, it switches back to normal power mode after charging to 80%. Your iPhone might perform some tasks more slowly when in Low Power Mode.
