ALL iPhone owners can instantly boost battery life with a few clever hacks.
If you're a long-time iPhone user, you might have missed some of these.
But it's important to know as many iPhone hacks as possible, to get the best value from your expensive Apple gadget.
TikTok tech whiz @scottpolderman recently revealed some battery life hacks, and we've got the exact details on how they work.
First, make sure you're using Optimised Battery Charging.
Your iPhone battery will hold less charge as it ages, but you can help to limit this degradation.

"A battery's lifespan is related to its chemical age, which is more than just the length of time since the battery was assembled," said Apple.
"A battery's chemical age results from a complex combination of several factors, including temperature history and charging pattern.
"All rechargeable batteries are consumable components that become less effective as they chemically age.
"As lithium-ion batteries chemically age, the amount of charge they can hold diminishes, resulting in reduced battery life and reduced peak performance."

That's where Optimised Battery Charging comes in, in a bid to extend the lifespan of your iPhone.
You can limit the wear on your battery by reducing the time your iPhone spends fully charged.
That ultimately means your battery will last longer.
So when Optimised Battery Charging is active, your iPhone will delay charging past 80% – but only in specific situations.
Your iPhone will learn about your day-to-day charging routine to do this.
Go into Settings > Battery > Battery Health > Optimised Battery Charging.
Make sure it's toggled on to activate the feature.
To further aid battery life, go to Settings>Accessibility, then Motion and turn on Reduce Motion.
Apple says this reduces "the motion of the user interface, including the parallax effect of icons".
This may provide a very minor battery life increase.
Dark Mode can also help with battery life – but only on certain iPhone models.
You'll need a handset with an OLED display.
A normal LED-backlit LCD display has a large backlight that illuminates the screen, letting you see content.
But this can create a significant power drain.
With an OLED display, each pixel can be illuminated individually – with no need for an enormous backlight constantly running.
This means black areas of your screen don't need to be lit up at all.
The main advantage is that you get a wider range of colours and contrast, with much more detail in the blacks.
