If your iPhone has suffered since the latest iOS update – this hack could give your smartphone battery life the upgrade it needs.

He claims that if you follow his instructions you will ‘never run out of battery’.

And it doesn’t require lots of technological know-how – in fact, he claims it’s ‘fool-proof’.

The iPhone trick to give you ‘unlimited cell phone battery’ takes mere seconds.

And it’s all about reducing White Point, per TikTok content creator, @t_sply.  to selectively dim the brightness of your screen.

First, go into your iPhone settings and search for ‘Reduce White Point’.

When that screen loads, simply scroll it up to 100 percent to initially dim your screen.

Next, lower your screen Brightness all the way to ‘totally black out your phone’.

Go to Settings, then Display & Brightness and drag the slider.

Alternatively on the iPhone X or later you can simply swipe down from the top right-hand corner of your display to access the sun icon from the homescreen.

“This will maximize your cell phone’s battery life,” he claims.

Of course, if you need to view your screen then this ‘blackout’ may not be entirely helpful.

However, you can have a play with those two settings to find a sweet spot that optimizes battery, while being bright enough to navigate.

Other tips for optimizing battery health include not charging your iPhone battery to 100 percent.

Using Low Power Mode to deactivate a lot of battery-draining features, such as background app refresh, fast display refresh rates, and so on can also be helpful.

Apple CEO, Tim Cook, took a more straightforward approach, however.

He said that we should simply reduce our screen time to ensure the battery lasts until the end of the day.

But it seems like battery life may not be such an issue for those who invest in an iPhone 16 later this year.

A recent patent filing leak suggests the iPhone 16 lineup may have a significantly longer battery life than its predecessor.
