What setting optimization are 12 Mini and 13 Mini owners using?

I’m curious about what other Mini users are doing to extend the battery on a single charge.

Especially for those who are on 90% Battery Health or lower.

I mainly use the two links below, but I have others…

I have a 15PM but limit the refresh rate, have a automation to switch to low power mode at 75% and have heavily customised the background refresh apps. My battery life is excellent.

Why???? You do you of course, but I just don’t get it. You’ve got one of the best phones on the market with already decent battery but use it like a 20 year old Nokia. What a waste.

If Apple decides not to continue the Mini series in 8 years, I’ll be forced to upgrade to a larger device.

I’ll likely get the smallest and oldest Pro model available… What sort of SOT do you get? Do you use widgets or AOD?

I won’t be using those features so I’m curious to see what others get when they’re disabled.

So I’ve always gone for max battery life on my phones. No widgets, no AOD, I usually get 9 or 10 hours of fairly intense use. Lots of YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime etc
