At the end of 2018, Apple launched the marketing of three new iPhones: the iPhone XR, the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. The iPhone XR, which is however a less luxurious and less powerful version than the other two, sold better than the XS and XS Max combined. More robust and with better value for money, the XR has won over many buyers. If you’re one of them, here are some tips to improve the lifespan of your iPhone XR.
Invest in a shell and a protective film
The first cause of significant damage on any smartphone is obviously a fall. Smartphones are getting bigger, thinner and more fragile. They are difficult to hold, fall more easily to the ground and break more easily when they hit the ground.
This is why it can be very wise to invest in a case for your iPhone. If you can’t stand to hide the worked curves of your iPhone, opt for a thin and transparent shell. When your iPhone falls to the ground, it will be the shell that will break instead of the iPhone. You will then have to replace the shell, but it will still be cheaper than an iPhone.
Among the recurring problems faced by smartphones and iPhones are broken screens. Whether due to a fall or a shock, these touch screens are also more fragile. Fortunately, it is possible to apply a simple transparent film to it, which will absorb shocks and reduce the risk of breakage.
Take out insurance for your iPhone
IPhone insurance can be one of the best investments you can make for your smartphone. If you are worried about the price of such a service, be aware that there are now very low-cost insurance policies, which you pay all at once and which are valid for one or two years. During this entire period, your phone is then perfectly protected.
Remember to take out full insurance, because the iPhone is not only subject to breakage. Certainly, these are pretty tough phones, but these are also coveted phones that are easy to resell. Remember to check that your insurance covers you in the event of theft.
Finally, be aware that few insurance policies will cover you against the loss of your phone. In conclusion, it is up to you to be vigilant and learn to use the “locate my iPhone” option. For the rest, you will be almost completely covered, be it against water, fire, falls, and even damage caused by someone other than you.
How to extend the battery life of your iPhone?
A few months ago, Apple had been accused of organizing planned obsolescence, in particular through its batteries whose lifespan generally does not exceed two years. Apple had subsequently offered to replace the batteries of some old iPhones for free. Consumers who had benefited from it then saw a marked improvement in the performance of their smartphone.
The battery therefore plays an important role in the life of the phone. A good battery can better power the processor and all the components necessary for your phone to work perfectly. However, it is very important to take care of the battery to be sure that your phone lasts as long as possible.
There are not fifty solutions for this. You need to permanently save your battery by lowering the screen brightness, turning off Bluetooth and WiFi when not in use, closing apps that you no longer need for several hours, etc. Also, remember to wait for your phone to charge before downloading app updates or certain large files.
How to transfer the content from my old iPhone to my iPhone XR?
If so many consumers remain loyal to Apple, it is mainly because it is very easy and very practical to transfer all the content from its old iPhone to its new iPhone. Thus, you have a new iPhone with all the content of your old iPhone, as if you had simply improved your iPhone.
To do this, you just need to connect your old iPhone to your computer and open the latest version of iTunes. Then click on your iPhone while it appears at the top left of the screen. You will find yourself in front of a menu and you will only have to click on the button “save this iPhone”. Below this button, you can also find out when the last backup was made.
The backup may take a few minutes if you haven’t done it for a long time and your iPhone is full. Then unplug your old iPhone and plug in your new iPhone. Turn it on and start installing it. After a while, it will offer to restore an old backup to this iPhone. Choose the backup you just made and start the installation. A few minutes later, your iPhone is ready. Of course, you can also do all this to transfer the content from your iCloud.
