To use the phone for a long time, protection is very important. Many users will scratch the film the first time when buying a new iPhone, put on the protective cover, the purpose is to prevent thousands of dollars worth of mobile phone accidental damage. But do you know that in everyday use, even if it’s just a simple standby, charging will inadvertently damage the phone?
idropnews in recent days with the combination of Apple’s sale of “genius” and the recommendations of professionals summed up the 10 “misunderstanding the iPhone,” Here we may wish to look together.
Do not use the lock screen password
Although the current iPhone’s protection mechanism has been perfect, but according to Apple’s 2013 report shows that there are still some users are not accustomed to using a password to protect their equipment.
Although the Touch ID and Face ID can prevent the thieves from unlocking in most cases, the biometric authentication through the biometric authentication will eventually disappear, and the lock screen password will naturally become the protection of your mobile phone The last barrier of privacy. As for the “lock screen” password “effect”, even the FBI (FBI) are no match.
Allow all applications to use location services
Each time a newly installed application is opened, a similar prompt “Allow applications to get your targeting information” pops up, and in most cases, the user will select “Allow” for future use.
But in fact, do we really need to get the app ready for our location?
Perhaps long-term open positioning function to facilitate our readily view the map, search tools or taxi software, etc., but long-term positioning function will have some drawbacks.
The first is the long-term open positioning function, cell phone battery life will consume faster than the need to use open; followed by privacy issues, do you really need an application at any time know where you are?
idropnews advice is to add or remove location-based services for certain applications in your settings based on your usage needs.
“Only when the battery runs out is charged and the battery is good”
I wonder if you have not heard of a rumor Square – “cell phone batteries have to run out and then recharge, so as not to damage the battery”, in fact, cell phone charging is not the end of the world, charging and will not cause much harm to the battery.
Today, lithium battery manufacturing technology and charging technology is already quite mature, in addition to modern mobile phone battery IC can prevent overcharge, but also according to the remaining capacity of the battery to constant charge power, the battery damage and heat down the lowest.
In fact, charging the battery before it is exhausted does not cause any damage to the battery. If you have to wait until the battery capacity is exhausted and recharged, it will only waste your time and affect your experience.
A long time does not shut down
Although this may seem absurd, it is true. Although users are accustomed to being charged before the phone is “low battery” or automatically shutting down, the battery will not be damaged if the battery is fully charged, but this does not mean that the battery of the phone is healthy.
According to Apple’s “genius bar,” the technical staff said that although the battery does not turn off the phone for a long time is not harmful to the battery, but the standby iPhone is like an idling car engine, though not at full speed, but it is indeed in operation, still Will consume battery life.
So Apple’s “genius” have suggested that users can periodically shut down the iPhone to restart to improve battery life.
Do not clean the phone
Whether it is the iPhone or other cell phones, it is inevitable that the bacteria, which is often infused into the device. According to the statistics of idropnews, mobile phone bacteria content per square inch is even higher than the toilet.
In addition, if you do not clean your phone for a long time, dirt, debris (paper towels, thread, etc.) generated by daily use will cause poor contact with the phone and the key feedback is not sensitive.
So, in order to keep your phone in good condition, we recommend that you regularly clean the phone’s ports with a soft cloth and clean with non-metallic objects.
Do not update the phone system
Although Apple Push systems are frequently updated and require at least 10 to 15 minutes for each update, it is quite necessary to periodically update the system.
Especially when Apple fixed a major system vulnerabilities, add significant features, the new version of the system has played a crucial role. So when these “update reminder” box pops up, it is recommended to update the system as soon as possible.
Do not back up your device
Often users have “white apples” (of course, iOS itself) when using the iPhone due to improper handling or tampering with the system, and the content that was previously saved after reinstalling the system was erased.
Therefore, according to the actual situation on a regular basis to backup the phone is very important.
iCloud can automatically save your photos, memos, texts and so on. Of course, if you do not purchase the capacity expansion, iCloud Cloud will only have 5GB of storage space (iCloud will be extended to 50GB and you will pay 6RMB per month).
If you can develop the habit of regular backups, saving the data to your computer with iTunes is a good way to stay safe and cost-free.
Use too much storage space
Many users are accustomed to a large number of video, music, pictures, applications installed into the phone, and even some users of the phone as a major productivity tool, a large number of content stored in the phone.
However, Apple’s “geniuses” advise users to try not to “plug” the phone’s storage because they have limited storage space for application downloads and updates. Their advice is to eliminate unnecessary content to free up storage space when less than 10% of the total memory is left.
The shell was not removed during charging
The “misunderstandings” listed by idropnews are equally weird, but in fact they still have their own reasons. Many users have the habit of putting a protective cover on the phone, but the thickness of the protective cover will also affect the cooling of the phone when charging.
Apple has introduced in the official website iPhone, iPad and other equipment, “extreme temperature.” iPhone “best use temperature” is between 16 ℃ ~ 22 ℃, “extreme temperature” is below 0 ℃ or above 35 ℃, the user should avoid using the iPhone in “extreme temperature”, otherwise it will cause permanent damage to the battery .
In addition, Apple recommends that when the device generates too much heat while charging, remove the protective case first and then continue charging.
Use a third-party charger
Last year’s iPhone 6s “battery door” incident, so that the majority of users back to the focus of mobile phone battery security issues. However, in addition to the natural aging of the battery, long-term use of unofficial power adapter will also damage the battery.
Currently there are a lot of power adapters on the market that have not passed Apple’s official MFi certification. Although they are inexpensive, studies have shown that using these chargers can rapidly reduce battery life.
Therefore, professionals suggest that users should try to use Apple’s official or MFi certified power adapter to ensure the safety of cell phone charging and battery life
