Why Is My iPhone 14 Dying So Fast?

How can you tell that your phone is dying faster?

The last thing anybody wants is their phone to die quickly, our phones are designed to provide us with the connectivity we need for our day to day workings, this can include our personal lives, and our business/work endeavours. 

Although it may seem obvious, there are some steps you can take, as well as signs you can see that indicate your battery is depleting faster than it originally was.

Take these steps

  • Fully charge your phone, and go about your day as normal, whilst making a note of how much time passes between the depletion of your battery over 10%. So from 100% to 90%, make a note of the time that passes, and repeat the process for 90% to 80% - 80% to 70% and so on. Repeat this process over days and see if there is a change of speed.
  • Use your phone with a purpose in mind, if you are just browsing on your phone, and not using it for a specific reason, try to avoid doing this and see if it affects how quickly your battery depletes.
  • Delete apps that you don’t use or need anymore, this can free up space on your phone, allowing less processing power to be used on the phone, which can save your battery.

Signs your battery is depleting 

  • The first and most obvious sign, your phone doesn’t last as long as it did when you first got it.
  • Your phone is hotter than it normally had been in the past
  • Using certain apps can affect the speed your battery depletes, make a note of the ones that do this. 
  • Some phones have settings in which you can observe your device health, if available, see what the results are, and see if there are methods that are offered to rectify the issue. 

Why is my iPhone 14 dying so fast?

Your iPhone 14 may be dying fast for a number of reasons, here are the most common.

  • Your phone is internally damaged
  • Your phone has no free space at all
  • You are using apps that stay active in the background
  • Your battery may be faulty 
  • There could be water damage
  • You have downloaded malicious software or 3rd party applications 

Do iPhones slow down on purpose?

Awkwardly enough, Apple has admitted to intentionally slowing down their older devices on purpose, this is to accommodate for the respective batteries of the older models in conjunction with the later software updates. The argument is that if they don’t do this, your phone’s battery could become a hazard.

Apple Warranties

In the case of Apple, you have a standard manufacturer warranty, however, the likelihood is that accidental damage isn’t covered under your warranty. (Check this before making any choices repair-wise). That being said, you can still go to Apple to get repairs outside the warranty. However, you will be paying for this service.

Apple extended warranty

Apple does have an additional support plan for your Apple devices, called AppleCare+ which greatly subsidises the cost of phone repairs and gives you access to more support services, like 24-hour priority calling, however, you still have to pay a monthly fee of £9.99, this might not be worth it, along with a cheaper price to repair the fault at hand

However, we can guarantee our level of service and expertise will make our repair the best value for your money.

What is the best way to maintain battery life?

There are many ways to extend the battery life of your phone, here are the most effective methods.

  • Don’t leave your phone charging after it is fully charged
  • Enable battery saving features on your phone
  • Enable adaptive brightness, or don’t have your phone on maximum brightness constantly
  • Activate bluetooth and other connectivity features when necessary
  • Make sure you have memory available on your phone at all times 
  • Keep your phone away from water and general damage
  • Reduce your phone usage unless its absolutely necessary.
  • Do not download or install anything from un-verified sources 
  • Reduce the framerate or display resolution settings (if available)

Should I get a refurbished phone?

refurbished phones are often the most economical way of getting a high-quality phone for a relatively low price and still having excellent functionality.

But it’s important to distinguish between old, used, second-hand and refurbished phones before you make a purchase. So what’s the difference?

Most second-hand phones have been repaired aesthetically but not necessarily functionally, so even though there may not be scratches on the back or cracks on the screen, you don’t know that the phone is working well.

On the contrary, refurbished phones have been repaired by professionals so that the inner workings of the phone have been repaired as well as the outside. That makes refurbished phones slightly more expensive than used or second-hand phones, but it’s worth it to know that the phone is working well and won’t need any urgent repairs, or professional phone unlocking
