As I posted earlier (link), I had a problem with my IPhone overheating and using up battery power very quickly.
I made a lot of changes to my IPhone settings since then and I think I have this issue more or less resolved.
First, I disabled the Enabled LTE setting on the Cellular settings screen.
Second, I disabled most of the USE CELLULAR DATA FOR settings lower down on the same screen.
Note: Some of the apps are definitely for my son to play with when he was bored.
I disabled the Background App Refresh setting.
I disabled all of the iCloud settings except for iCloud Drive and Find My iPhone.
I disabled all of the settings for iTunes & App Stores. No automatic downloads and no using Cellular Data!
I also do the following:
- Keep Bluetooth off unless I need it.
- Try to always connect to a Wi-Fi service if available.
- Use the Outlook app for email.
- Use the iPhone mail app only for Contacts and Reminders. Fetch new data hourly.
The result of these changes is that my iPhone never feels like it is burning up – even when charging. In addition, my iPhone is holding its charge much, much longer.
I will make the same changes on my daughter’s iPhone to see if the problem is resolved for her.
