iPad owners might be searching for tips to improve the performance and lifespan of their devices. However, not many users know that they can follow a few simple tricks to maximize battery life and longevity of their device. Below are some of the general tips to improve the performance of your iPad, so that you can make the most out of it.
Avoid Extreme Temperatures
Devices from Apple are designed to perform in a wide range of temperatures, but the ideal range of temperature is from 16-22°C (62-72°F). Therefore, it is very much important that you do not expose your device to extreme temperatures above 35°C (95°F), as this can cause irrecoverable damage to the battery and the device may lose its ability to hold charge.
This means that the battery of your iPad will not be able to power the device for long on a given charge, when compared to a normal working battery that has the same charge in it. You may also notice that the battery life decreases while using the device in cold environment, but this change is temporary. Once the device returns to normal temperatures, the performance of the battery will return to normal.
Update to Latest Software
Software updates from Apple usually include advanced technologies that can help save energy and improve battery life. So it is recommended to update your iPad or any iOS device to the latest version of iOS. Besides, updating your iPad regularly will make sure it is up to date with all the latest malware protection and antivirus definitions.
Remove Case While Charging
Some of the third party cases available for iPads may generate excess heat while charging. This can affect the battery potential and performance of the device. Therefore, it is better to remove the additional case from your iPad before plugging it for charging.
Store Half Charged While Storing For Long
If you are planning to store your iPad for long, you will need to consider two important things, the temperature of the environment and the percentage of charge left on the battery. Remember that it is ideal not to charge or discharge the battery completely for storing.
If you store the device with a discharged battery, the battery may fall to a deep discharge cycle and it will not be able to hold charge after that. On the other hand, if you store the device with fully charged battery for a long time, the battery will lose its capacity, decreasing the life of the same. The ideal way is to charge the battery to fifty percent.
