How to make your iPhone X battery last a ridiculous amount of time

“A number of people, myself included, wish the iPhone X was a bit larger. The all-screen(-except-for-the-notch) design allowed Apple to cram in a 5.8-inch display, but the aspect ratio means the screen is quite narrow. Another area where there’s plenty of room for improvement is battery life, which isn’t bad but can always be better,” Zach Epstein writes for BGR. “If you find yourself in a pinch though, there’s a trick that makes your iPhone X battery basically last forever. Okay, so it won’t really last forever, but you’ll get days out of a single charge if you use this trick.”

“You can pick up an iPhone X battery case on Amazon if you don’t mind the extra bulk, and you’ll be able to go two days before needing a charge,” Epstein writes. “Of course, not everyone wants to carry a battery case. Luckily, there’s another option.”

MacDailyNews Take: Plus, it look really cool, too!


  1. I just picked up a 10,000 mah battery that supports fast charging via the USB-C to lightning cable. Its pretty slim and will do in a pinch to give it a quick boost if needed, only ran $28 on Amazon. Why mess with all the power setting and hobble it, I never understood that.

    1. Useful for when you’re stuck out in the woods… and want to keep your phone on for emergency reasons. Great call on the emergency power mode! A force touch on the status screen and the ability to choose low power or emergency power mode would be great!

    1. The secret to making your iPhone X battery to last longer is to diminish its beauty and functionality. Now that’s what I call thinking outside the box. Zack, you are a genius, an evil genius, but a genius.
