    iPhone 12 mini iPhone 12 mini Battery 8 Months In

    It sucks. Even on the latest iOS, I can't even get half a day out of it. Sure, I could disable all of the things that make iOS and iPhone so great and ink out an extra 1-2 hours. That sure is Apple's solution! Is anyone else having this issue? What are your plans come fall? Will you get the...

    All iPads Leave iPad Air plugged in?

    I’ve never really known if I’m supposed to leave my iPad plugged in all the time, or if it’s better to let it drain to a certain point and then plug it in. What’s best for the battery? I’m using the latest iPad Air (late 2020). Thanks!

    iPad Air iPad Air 2 battery life after change.

    I've had my iPad Air 2 for several years and used it a lot. Recently I noticed that the battery life was starting to decline (750 cycles). So I decided to change to a new battery myself since the cost at Apple is 5X what a battery costs. Anyhow, after changing the battery and having done two...

    iPad Pro With 2500 dimming zones on the iPad Pro, does this mean you can save on battery life in permanent dark mode?

    I was wondering if in the new 12.9 inch iPad pros and its 2500 dimming zones that can be lit independently of each other, do you think we can see an increase in battery life if we switch to dark mode all the time? It might make sense right that if we use less of the Mini LED to light up the...
