Now it is estimated that an average mobile phone user checks his/her phone at least 10 times during the day. So let’s say your auto-lock is set to be activated at least 1 minute after usage, that is ten minutes of battery life gone. This may not seem like much, but multiply that by 367 and then you will start to understand.
I know some people might think these little things we do every day might not count, but I assure you that they do count, and at times it is the little things that make the difference. They not only increase the timing of battery timing but also iPhone battery life. So if you are looking for a hassle-free way to save some extra battery power, without downloading any app what so ever, then this is the way to go.
