Update on my IPhone Status


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:

  1. Keep Bluetooth off unless I need it.
  2. Try to always connect to a Wi-Fi service if available.
  3. Use the Outlook app for email.
  4. 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.
