Low Power Mode
No one can deny how frustrating it is to survive with a low battery, especially, at those particular moments when you really and desperately need your phone to stay on as long as possible!

Fix Your Auto-Lock
What most of the phone users ignore is that whenever the screen is lit up, much battery is consumed, even when they don’t use it! Hence, to avoid such low battery issues, phone users should be smart and decrease the amount of time the screen spends doing this by setting an auto -lock.
To activate the following option, mobile users need to navigate through settings > Display & Brightness > Auto-Lock. A piece of cake, right!
Disable Location Services
Location services can consume much of your battery. So, you definitely don’t wanna leave it on, especially when your battery is too low! In fact, some apps consistently track your current location, even, when you are not using them, which eventually lead to taking battery life.
Hence, waste, not your time and immediately navigate to settings and then go to Privacy > Location Services and then select the option “While Using” option for all of your installed apps.
Turn Of’’ Push’’ On Your Email Accounts

The good thing about the latter is that it consumes less battery power because it pings the server less frequently. Hence, you’d better turn off the ‘’Push’’ and stick to ‘’ Fetch’’ instead!
To do the following you just need to go to setting and then navigate to Accounts and passwords and then finally Fetch New Data. Here, you just need to do one more thing and which is selecting ‘’Fetch’’ for each account !
