There’s nothing worse than noticing that the battery is pretty low just as you’re about to walk out the door.
Even a quick ten-minute boot up isn’t enough to keep you going for the day ahead.
In an ideal world, you have a power bank that sorts you out on the go.
But if you don’t have one and are short on time, there’s a way to get a lot more juice flowing into your iPhone while it’s charging.
TikToker Walter Dwight has revealed two really useful tricks that you can try next time you find yourself in this desperate situation.
Tip one is to put your iPhone in airplane mode.
This will disconnect all connections and allow your device to conserve power instead of using some of it when you don’t need it.
The second trick is to turn your smartphone’s brightness all the way down – and lock your device.
