Getting notifications is great but it uses a lot of your Ipad`s battery power. Turn off Lock Screen Notifications is the best way to sort this problem because it will no longer activate your device while you have it in your pocket.
Turning off push notifications will not give you any automatic updates from installed apps e.g: facebook but it will help conserve battery life
To turn off lock screen notifications go to Settings – Notifications and Choose an app and Turn View in Lock Screen to OFF
To disable push notifications go to Settings – Apps section. Select the app and then Select Push Notifications and Turn them OFF
The iPad’s Display drains more power than all of the other components. Even though bright display, especially if is automatically controlled, offers a better quality it also decreases faster your ipad`s battery’ life.
By disabling the auto-brightness feature and by adjust the brightness level to a good level will help keep the power in your Ipad`s battery
Disable Wi-fi and Bluetooth connections
When there are no available Wi-Fi connections that you can connect to, your Ipad will keep scanning for available ones. It is useful but it also uses battery power. If wi-fi is not needed than disable it to improve your Ipad`s battery life
Same principle applies to bluetooth as well. If you do not need it then turn it off
To Turn WiFi off go to Settings and then Choose WiFi and Slide it to Off
To Turn Bluetooth off go to Settings- General, then go to Bluetooth and turn it OFF
Don`t use data services if you don`t need them
If you are home or some place without any signal coverage turning off “Cellular Data” is a good way to keep your Ipad happy. This will stop your Ipad from connecting to ANY wireless connections and there won`t be any working internet connection available.
Turning off 4G LTE is another good way of saving power. 4G LTE provides faster speed but if it is not needed then you can switch it off
The less amount of time the Ipad needs to turn the screen off the more power it will save. Considering this, setting the screen-lock to 2 minutes will help reduce the amount of time that the screen stays on, thus further improving your Ipad`s battery life
To enable Auto Screen Lock go to Settings – General and Choose Auto-Lock
Watching videos and listening to music
As a general rule, the less you listen to music on your device or, even better, the less videos you watch the more battery time you will have
Content syncing is definitely a very useful option but it also has a disadvantage of decreasing your Ipad`s battery life. By automatically checking and synchronising new data like emails or IM your Ipad will use more power. Try limiting syncing to hourly checks or even setting it up to run manually.
To Limit Syncing go to Settings – Mail, Contacts, Calendars Turn PUSH OFF and then set FETCH to Manually
Turn OFF location services
Location services allow your Ipad to share you location. This can be helpful if you are using the GPS in your app but it also drains power from the battery
To disable All Location Services go to Settings then Choose Location Services and Turn them OFF
Keep your Ipad away from high or very low temperatures
Very high or very low temperatures can decrease your Ipad`s battery life. A good enviroment is between 32°F and 95°F (0°C to 35°C)
Always update your Ipad`s software
Updates can bring new ways to optimize your Ipad`s battery life and performance
