1. Check Charger

Starting with iPhone 12 series, Apple has removed the default adapter from the retail box. Most users end up purchasing adapters from an unknown company on Amazon or a retail store.

We always advise sticking to official Apple accessories or popular third-party companies like Anker.

If you have purchased a cheap adapter, it might get faulty after some time. You may notice charging issues or slow charging. It’s time to get a new charger.

2. Check Battery Health

This is relevant for those using iPhone for a long time. Over time, the battery health on your iPhone does take a hit and you might be left with a battery capacity of around 70% or less.

This is the nature of all lithium-ion batteries. The capacity decreases as you go through charging cycles.

1. Open Settings on iPhone.

2. Go to the Battery menu.

3. Tap on Battery Health and check maximum battery capacity from the following menu.

If it’s below 70%, you should consider swapping the old battery with a new one at the Apple store or a third-party service center.

3. Find Buggy iOS Apps

Some apps on your iPhone might be taking a big chunk of battery and that can lead to overheating issues on the iPhone. You should identify such apps and remove them from the phone. Here’s how.

1. Navigate to iPhone Settings > Battery menu.

2. Check which apps are consuming unusual battery juice on iPhone.

Remove those apps and report to developers. Whenever an app goes through major under-the-hood changes, the early versions do come with few glitches. We have seen the same problem with Evernote when the app got updated to v10.

Continuous video recording on iPhone 4K in resolution may lead to overheating issues on the phone. Apple offers an option to dial down video resolution from 4K to full-HD from the Settings menu.

2. Select Record Video.

3. Select 4K at 30 fps or go with 1080p at 60 fps for a smooth video recording experience.

This is directly related to the first point. When you enable Optimized Charging toggle, iOS limits the iPhone charging to 80% when required. The practice is there to improve the longevity of the iPhone battery.

Launch iPhone Settings and go to Battery > Battery Health menu. Enable Optimized Battery Charging toggle from the following menu.
