How to Access Recovery Mode on your iPhone and iPad?

Apple doesn’t provide any easy way or a single button to get into the recovery mode. It needed a bit of practice or proper knowledge of steps to reach the recovery menu. Recovery mode has many uses like taking a backup, factory data reset, and downgrading from the latest to the previous iOS version. Apple devices have a bit trickier way to get into the recovery mode. But, today we are providing the full tutorial for how to access the recovery menu in any iOS device. Given below are the steps to get into the recovery menu.

Recovery Mode on your iPhone and iPad

  1. Switch off your iOS device first, and then follow the below steps to access the recovery menu.
  • With the devices having face ID, tap, and hold the top switch. Press -hold the down volume switch until the slide to power off shows, after that move your finger across the slider that appears after holding the volume button.
  • If you are having an iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.  then follow these steps: Press and the side switch until you see slide to power off on your device screen and after that move your finger in the slider.
  • If you have an iPhone 7 or iOS device or devices with a home switch or iPods with touch models, then follow these steps. Hold the side or top switch unless you see slide to power off on your screen and after that, move your finger across the slider that you see after holding the buttons mentioned above.
  1. Now plug your connector cable which you get along with your Apple device. Into your computer.
  2. Plug the cable that comes along with your device into your iOS device such iPhone, iPad, iPod touch.
  3. Our next step is to press the buttons in such a way that triggers the recovery mode, to push the keys accordingly follow the below steps carefully:
  • If the device that you are using is an iPhone or an iPad, then press and hold the top switch until the recovery mode icon triggers.
  • For iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, press and hold the side switch unless you see the recovery menu icon.
  • For the devices that come under the bracket of iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus or iPhone touch then press and hold volume down switch unless the recovery mode icon appears on your device.
  • This step is for iPhone 6s or older iPhone users. Hit and hold the side or the top button unless the screen shows the recovery mode sign on your device.

Wrapping it up

Now you have reached the recovery menu in your iOS device. Do the things that are safe to do. Don’t try to play with the recovery mode because it can harm your phone or tablet. Sometimes people brick their Apple gadgets by doing random things in the recovery menu. This mode can also wipe out all data that is precious for you, so never access to the recovery mode unless you have saved all the useful data in a safe place. Have a good day!

How iOS 13 Helps Save your iPhone’s Battery

iPhones consist of lithium-ion batteries, which offer a more extended life if you usually don’t charge more than 80%. Though, mostly you must be choosing to charge your iOS device fully.  Apple is trying to make things easier with iOS 13.

iOS 13 iPhone’s Battery.jpg

At the WWDC 2019, Apple presented iOS 13 to the world. Battery optimization was one of the most notable features being offered with the iOS 13. It is destined to stop your iPhone from charging above 80% if it is not necessary. You must be thinking about why Apple is forcing you to keep the battery maximum charged at 80%. It is because of the Lithium-ion battery technology.

The technology behind the battery is very complicated. Its primary goal is to fill in the maximum energy possible and release it without any explosion. When it comes to Lithium-ion batteries, the technology behind them is more complicated as they are rechargeable.

Why should you not keep 100% battery?

Lithium-ion batteries are capable of charging 80% quicker than the battery technologies existed before. This percentage of battery is ideal for many to go through the day. Though, there is a maximum charge cycle issue with Lithium-ion, regardless of having a memory issue. After charging battery multiple times, it starts losing capacity. You might be thinking 100% battery from zero percentage is a full charge. But, if you will charge to 100% from 80 continuously for five days, the remaining 20% compiles up as overall one entire charge cycle.

You must not drain the battery to zero and then charge to 100% because it is not suitable for the battery in the long run. Even it is not good to charge the battery all the time; when your phone’s battery stays around 100%, the chances of overheating increases. Once the battery gets charged fully, it stops for a while and starts soon for preventing overcharging issues. Like, when the battery percentage reaches 100%, it goes down back to 95% or 98% and keeps repeating the cycle.

Implement the 40-80 rule

The best solution for keeping your device and its battery safe is to use the 40-80 rule. A lot of battery manufacturers recommend it for various reasons. This rule suggests you do not keep the battery less than 40% and charge more than 80% to avoid damage and protect the battery. If you want your battery to be charged maximum, keep the battery percentage around 80%.

The new charging algorithm in iOS 13

You get the battery health feature for checking the capacity of the battery and its history as well, with the iOS update offered recently. It will be easy to check whether you implemented the 40-80 rule or not. However, starting the day with around 80% battery can problem for those who travel around a lot and don’t have access to a charging outlet. The remaining 20% battery will make a difference at the end of the day.

Apple is offering a new algorithm with iOS 13 that is destined to keep the battery of your iPhone at 80% while you charge overnight. The algorithm will be connected with daily schedules, like when you get started with the day and rest to offer a fully charged battery. You can quickly get the maximum charge and keep the battery safe at the same time!
