The guide below will show you how you can preserve the battery life of your iPad mini, getting more usage time out of it.
- Make sure you have the latest software installed as newer updates might have power-saving features. To update, go to Settings > General > Software Update to check for the latest updates.
- Turn off any settings that you are not using. For example, Bluetooth is not used all the time so features like these can be switched off.
- Lower the screen brightness according to your surroundings, as you do not need full screen brightness at all times.
- Let your iPad battery drain at least once a month, as this will increase the overall battery life.
- Make sure that none of your applications are running in the background while you are not using them. This can be done by double-tapping on the home screen and clearing all running apps.
- If you are on iOS7, you can run the guided access which will let the owner specify one running app.
- Disable push notifications on your iPad as these drain the battery.
- Turn off iPad sounds as sounds will deplete the battery life.
Actioning these tips will extend battery life of your iPad or tablet.
