“My iPhone 7’s battery has been dying too fast when I use it to make a video call or play games. Is it because I updated my phone to iOS 11? Can anyone help me fix this problem? The iPhone is new. I purchased it just a last week.”
It sounds like your battery is being depleted too quickly when you use FaceTime or when playing games too long. Your iPhone 7 should have a reliable battery throughout and while these battery problems are not uncommon, they are also not normal. There are certain things you can do to fix the problem. Let’s take a look at some of the most effective solutions.
Helpful Suggestions to Solve "iPhone Battery Die Fast" (iOS 11 Supported)
The following are just some of the things you can try to do to fix the battery draining issue.
01 Restart the Device
If you haven’t tried it already, restarting the device may work to fix the issue. Simply turn off the device and then turn it back on and see if the battery still drains too fast.
02 Check Out Battery Usage and Close the Unused App
If you have iOS 10, your system may be able to check the detailed battery usage and find out which Apps are draining your battery. Go to Settings > Battery > Battery Usage. They will show you which Apps are using a lot of battery. Even they run in background, they will use the battery as well. So it's better to close them when they are not in use.
03 Turn on Low Power Mode
By reducing the amount of visual effects in iOS, you can significantly increase your battery life. Go to Settings >Battery> and turn on Lower Power Mode. Please note that this may cause iMessage effects not to work.
04 Disable Location Services
Location services can be a real battery drainer. So, unless you need to find your way right that minute, it may be a good idea to disable this service to make your battery last longer.
Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and choose either “Never” or “While Using” to set location as per app and feature.
