Do not use your phone while charging

The first and most important piece of advice is to stop using yours iPhone.

When you plug it in to charge, you’re juicing the battery.

But if you use app at the same time you draw electricity away.

So if you avoid using your phone while it’s charging, the handset will boot up faster.

Put your phone in airplane mode

The next trick to increase your iPhone’s charging time is to turn on Airplane mode.

Airplane mode turns off all outgoing connections—like Wi-Fi, cellular data, and Bluetooth.

All of those connections require power — and using mobile data can be a particularly draining activity.

Many apps use mobile data in the background, so this can affect your loading time.

By turning on Airplane mode (and disconnecting), you can shave about five minutes off a full load time.

Just go into your Settings app on iPhone and then slide the Airplane mode switch at the top to the “on” position.

However, don’t forget to turn it off again afterwards.

Get a 20W charger and plug your iPhone into it instead

The easiest way to decrease your iPhone charging time is to use a faster charger.

If you don’t have one, you can buy one Apple here:

Charging your iPhone from a laptop or computer (using a USB cable) is very energy efficient – only 2.5 watts.

A standard iPhone charger that you received in the original box is slightly better and offers 5 watts of power.
