Another Good Way
- Another good way is to close all your apps. They drain your battery life as if you were actually using them. To do this, press the Home button twice. Then, press an app until it starts to have a - sign. Then, press the - sign to close the app. [This is a widely held belief, but it's actually wrong.

Do Not Disturb mode
- I'm pretty sure Do Not Disturb mode will save battery life. But this would be for an iPod, because it will block out calls on an iPhone.

e-mail push is better
- I think push e-mail is better as at least info is coming to the iPhone as available rather than the iPhone checking and perhaps finding nothing. When it polls the server and finds e-mail, it will have to download the same amount anyway but now it has used up the battery it took to poll when there was nothing there and the battery it took to poll when there was something there and it had to DL it. Think about it.

- I dont know if this is from an AT&T phone but for Verizon to get to location services you have to go to settings ----> Privacy. This article showsFind it in Settings -> Location Services -> System Services -> Turn off Diagnostics & Usage, Location-Based iAds, and Setting Time Zone. I got stuck on that for a while. So if this helps anyone, GREAT...

Don't forget Airplane mode!
- If you don't like waiting for your phone to start up, you can at least set it to Airplane Mode to disable communications. I always set my iPhone to Airplane Mode just before school. At lunch, I disable Airplane Mode, check messages & stuff, then enable it again. It's a quick way to turn off all wireless signals. I save a lot of battery without having to turn it off (since I don't like waiting for the device to start up).

Save battery life

- Turn brightness down all the way, delete your streaming apps at the bottom. Also, turn off Wi-Fi and STAY OFF IT.

- Power off the iPhone so your battery will not drain never!! Or power all services, including the signal, and use it for camera!! I hate this tips. Sorry I am Apple fan but the real problem is the iOS 6.0 that has many problems including the quick battery drain.

- The pages at Apple.com about extending iPhone battery life no longer mention the equalizer. The information appears to be outdated. (Note that the iPod pages still do, so it would appear that the iPhone and presumably iPod touch have implemented the equalizer in energy-efficient hardware to reduce the load on the CPU.)

- All those saying to kill the apps in your recently used list, read this.... speirs.org/blog/2012/1/2/misconceptions-about-ios-multitasking.html ...iPhone/iOS is way smarter than you give it credit for. None of those apps are killing battery unnecessarily.

You forgot the most important tip!
- Press your home button twice quickly to see all the apps you have running. Press one of them gently until the delete icon appears in the upper left corner of each. Press the delete icon to turn them all off. There's no need to have them all open, and this really drains your battery life! [This is a widely held belief, but it's actually wrong.
