want to speed up your iphone's charging process? check out these 7 tips

Every iPhone user has experienced a moment at some point when they grab their phone and realize it has a low battery. Sometimes you just need a quick charge for your iPhone when it's almost dead and you've to step out of your house urgently.

Here are some tips and tricks to charge your iPhone faster so that you can avoid emergency power situations at any given time.

Here are 7 tips for charging your iPhone faster

Upgrade Your iPhone's Charger and Cable

An Apple charger with high wattage or any third-party charger that supports USB Power Delivery (PD) is compatible. However, there are a variety of brands and models to consider for fast USB PD chargers. Also, the fastest range in power, 30W-60W per port.

You must always check total power versus port power while purchasing a charger. A good cable and charger combo allows you to charge your iPhone with up to 50 percent battery in around 30 minutes.

Avoid wireless chargers

Though wireless chargers are undoubtedly convenient, they lack efficiency. It is proven that wireless charging is handy, but it's not as fast as traditional wired charging. Apple's own MagSafe charger provides up to 15W charge compared to the 30W or even 60W chargers that use traditional cables.

Talking about the time difference, according to Consumer Reports, Apple's MagSafe wireless charger took two hours and 36 minutes to charge an iPhone 12 Pro whereas Apple's stock Lightning cable accomplished the same task in only one hour and 45 minutes.

Put your iPhone in Airplane mode

The iPhone's network or data connectivity is one of the biggest energy users. When not connected to Wi-Fi, our phones are constantly in search of the nearest cell tower. The device even emits stronger radio waves to locate them and is continuously analyzing signal strength to get the best connection.

Hence, the energy requirements also increase. You must know that the less your iPhone is doing the faster it will be charged. So, you must always put your iPhone in 'Airplane mode' while charging up. Interestingly, tests have shown that this feature helps in preventing battery wastage and recharge faster.

Turn on low-power mode

Similar to the 'Airplane mode', the iPhone's 'Low Power Mode' can speed up charging by reducing the phone's workload. When you switch on the 'Low Power Mode', most non-essential background tasks such as automatic downloads, automatic email fetching, visual effects are temporarily paused or reduced, which ultimately prevents battery wastage.

To enable the 'Low Power Mode', head to your iPhone's 'Settings', choose 'Battery' and then simply tap on the 'Low Power Mode' option.

Keep your iPhone cool, remove case while charging

It is important to keep your iPhone cool while charging so that it can operate at optimal levels. Also, iPhones are able to charge more efficiently when they're kept at the right temperature. You must protect your iPhone from excessive outside heat as well as the heat generated by the iPhone itself. Also, you must not use apps while charging your iPhone as it may create temperature spikes.

Most importantly, you must remove your case while charging your iPhone to disperse any built-up heat. Apple says, "Charging your device when it's inside certain styles of cases may generate excess heat, which can affect battery capacity." "If you notice that your device gets hot when you charge it, take it out of its case first."

Turn off your iPhone

It may seem weird, but your phone definitely charges faster when it's turned off and doesn't have to keep up with running everything. Therefore, it is advisable to shut your phone off and plug it into charge to speed up the charging process, because this way, your phone isn't using any energy and all of the charge is going straight to your battery.

Keep up with battery maintenance

Along with fast charging, you must always maintain your iPhone's battery. For proper maintenance, you must allow your iPhone battery to die at least once a month. Even Apple advises, "For proper maintenance of a lithium-based battery, it's important to keep the electrons in it moving occasionally. Be sure to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down)."

Secondly, you must regularly clear your iPhone's lightning port as it can also slow your phone's charging process. You can always use a normal toothpick to clean up the debris built inside.
