iPhone 5c Battery Replacement

iPhone-5c-blue-iFixit-teardown-001Do you feel like you’re constantly charging your iPhone 5c’s battery? Eventually, your iPhone 5c’s battery will need replacement. iPhone batteries can usually go for 400 charges before they start losing their capacity, so after a while, you end up tied down to an outlet or constantly worrying if your phone is about to die. You might miss calls or opportunities to snap pictures if your smartphone’s battery runs out unexpectedly. The good news is there are a few ways you can delay this from happening:

  • Charge only as needed: If you charge your smartphone too frequently, you’ll wear out the battery faster. Save charging for when the battery is about to die.
  • Unplug it when it’s done charging: Leaving an iPhone battery charging too long can reduce its ability to hold a charge in the future. Most iPhone batteries take 4-5 hours to charge. After that time is up, unplug it.
  • Turn off background programs: Some background functions are not strictly necessary for everyday use. Shutting down unneeded apps reduces battery drain and allows you to go longer without charging your phone. With less frequent charging, your battery lasts longer.

No battery lasts forever, of course, and it will eventually need to be replaced no matter what you do. Fortunately, it is a fast, affordable procedure, but it involves opening the smartphone’s casing. Doing this yourself runs the risk of losing small pieces and causing unnecessary damage to internal components. Your best bet is to trust experienced professionals at a licensed service center.
